A star-studded leaderboard at the PGA Championship produced a first-time major champion as Jason Dufner opened up a two-shot lead during the final round and found greens nearly all the way in for a two-shot win at Oak Hill over Jim Furyk. Henrik Stenson finishes third and Jonas Blixt fourth, with Scott Piercy and Adam Scott T-5.

Here's how it unfolded – and scroll down for all our PGA Championship coverage!

• • •

Update #48: 6:54 p.m. EDT

Jim Furyk is away and punches it onto the back of the green, well away from the pin but giving himself a chance to putt. Leader Jason Dufner then flops it onto the front of the green, all but securing his first major championship. Furyk lags close and rolls in his bogey putt, while Dufner two-putts for bogey and the victory – and an expectedly understated celebration.

• • •

Update #47: 6:47 p.m. EDT

Jim Furyk misses the green left and short, his birdie chances shrinking. Leader Jason Dufner misses the green as well, finding the rough in front of the green. It's something of a pitch-and-putt contest now, though Dufner leads by two.

• • •

Update #46: 6:41 p.m. EDT

Leader Jason Dufner's missed short par putt at the penultimate hole has the potential to cause regret, as his tee shot at the 72nd finds the right rough and settles in a bit. Jim Furyk, two shots down, hits his tee ball in the rough as well.

• • •

Update #45: 6:37 p.m. EDT

Jim Furyk makes bogey, unable to wedge it close from the Oak Hill rough at No. 17 yet nearly holing a par attempt. Leader Jason Dufner lags his putt close, then misses about a 2-footer for par – it's Dufner's first bogey of the round as his lead remains two shots going to the tournament's final hole.

• • •

Update #44: 6:33 p.m. EDT

Adam Scott finishes with a bogey to card an even-par 70 Sunday, T-5 as he heads to the clubhouse at 5 under.

• • •

Update #43: 6:29 p.m. EDT

Leader Jason Dufner finds the fairway at No. 17, as does top pursuer Jim Furyk. Furyk then finds the greenside rough while Dufner hits to the safe part of the green, far from the pin but the smart play to protect a two-shot lead as Furyk seems unlikely to birdie.

• • •

Update #42: 6:22 p.m. EDT

Knowing the stakes, Jim Furyk studies his birdie attempt carefully at the 16th. He finds the center of the hole to birdie and go to 10 under, while leader Jason Dufner makes his oh-so-short birdie putt to gain a stroke as well – keeping Furyk two shots back as they head to the last two holes of the tournament.

• • •

Update #41: 6:19 p.m. EDT

Jim Furyk knocks his second shot at No. 16 to inside 10 feet – after which Jason Dufner might have put the locks on the Wanamaker Trophy by sticking it inside 2 feet. We'll see if he can give himself a 3-shot lead here.

• • •

Update #40: 6:14 p.m. EDT

Jonas Blixt hits it close from the fairway at No. 16, the ball spinning back near the front edge for about a 10-foot birdie attempt. He sinks the putt to move to 8 under, three back of leader Jason Dufner, with two holes to play.

David Toms quietly got better as the week went on, the 2001 PGA Championship victor capping his tournament with back-to-back birdies at Nos. 16-17 followed by a par to finish with a 67, his 4-under performance for the week placing him seventh as the leaders close things out.

• • •

Update #39: 6:10 p.m. EDT

Leader Jason Dufner, from the left collar, chooses fairway wood again and chips to about 2 feet or so for another good look at par. Jim Furyk, whose lengthy first putt was about 4-5 feet short, gives his par attempt a good look before sinking it and giving himself a fist pump. Dufner then rolls it in to maintain his two-stroke lead – and the kind of Sunday performance while leading a major that has yielded many a title.

• • •

Update #38: 6:06 p.m. EDT

Facing the water-guarded hole location chosen by fans at Oak Hill's par-3 15th, leader Jason Dufner plays well to the left, nearly pin high, and faces a long putt from the fringe to the right-side pin by water. Furyk also plays left but is shorter, left with an even longer putt.

Adam Scott follows his birdie at No. 15 with a bogey at No. 16 to slide back to 6 under, five back of the lead with two holes to play.

• • •

Update #37: 5:58 p.m. EDT

Leader Jason Dufner's approach at No. 14 lands on the green right of the pin, but spins back off the front edge; this after Jim Furyk's approach landed and rolled toward the back of the green to leave him a long putt. Furyk lags it close, the ball rolling just past the low side of the cup and maybe 2 feet past. Dufner takes fairway wood and chips from the fringe to about a foot. Both sink their short par efforts to maintain the status quo: Dufner up by two.

• • •

Update #36: 5:53 p.m. EDT

Defending champion Rory McIlroy bogeys the 16th to fall back to even par for the day, T-9 at 3 under with two to play.

• • •

Update #35: 5:48 p.m. EDT

Jonas Blixt, who won the Greenbrier Classic, rolls in a birdie putt at No. 14 to climb to 8 under. Alongside him, Henrik Stenson hits it close to the green but his second shot finds the bunker; he fails to get up and down and returns to 8 under with a bogey.

Adam Scott holes out from the bunker at the par-3 15th, making birdie to rise to 7 under.

• • •

Update #34: 5:44 p.m. EDT

Leader Jason Dufner's approach at the 13th is again solid, while Jim Furyk's is short of the elevated front. Furyk pitches to inside 2 feet and Dufner putts it to inside a foot again. Both convert their tap-ins and remain 11 and 9 under, respectively.

• • •

Update #33: 5:36 p.m. EDT

Henrik Stenson birdies the par-5 13th after reaching in two, his ball rolling onto the front of the green. Stenson's four moves him into a tie for second at 9 under with Jim Furyk.

In the group behind, Furyk and leader Jason Dufner lay up short at the 13th.

• • •

Update #32: 5:28 p.m. EDT

Jason Dufner's birdie putt at No. 12 tails off to the right at the last second, still only barely missing the hole. He taps in for yet another par. Jim Furyk also narrowly misses a birdie putt and taps in to remain two back of Dufner's lead.

• • •

Update #31: 5:24 p.m. EDT

Adam Scott finds trouble at the par-5 13th, finding the rough with his second and third shots, then failing to get up and down. He taps in for bogey and slips to 6 under, five back of leader Jason Dufner – who has given himself another birdie look (stop me if you've heard this one before) with a solid approach shot at the 12th.

• • •

Update #30: 5:19 p.m. EDT

His putt dead on line, Jason Dufner's birdie try at No. 11 stops about a clubhead's length short of the hole; he taps in for par to remain the leader by two strokes as Jim Furyk also makes par.

• • •

Update #29: 5:15 p.m. EDT

Leader Jason Dufner sticks another approach shot inside 10 feet and, at the par-3 11th, will have another good chance to make birdie. See what's in Dufner's bag here.

Defending champion Rory McIlroy gets his round under par for the second time today, thanks to back-to-back birdies at Nos. 9-10 and another at No. 13; McIlroy is 8th at 4 under, seven shots back of Dufner.

• • •

Update #28: 5:11 p.m. EDT

Henrik Stenson makes about a 15-footer for par at No. 11 to remain three back in third at 8 under.

Adam Scott picks up a stroke at No. 12 with a birdie putt to get to 7 under, alone in fourth.

• • •

Update #27: 5:05 p.m. EDT

Leader Jason Dufner hits his approach about 5 feet short of the hole for a good look at birdie, which he just misses over the left edge. He taps his comebacker in the side door to remain 11 under. Jim Furyk also pars to remain two shots back in second.

• • •

Update #26: 4:57 p.m. EDT

As the leaders make the turn, let's recap the top of the leaderboard:

  • Jason Dufner, 11 under: 3 under through nine holes
  • Jim Furyk, 9 under: Even through nine holes
  • Henrik Stenson, 8 under: 1 under through nine holes
  • Adam Scott, 6 under: 1 under through 11 holes
  • Jonas Blixt, 6 under: Even par through 10 holes
  • Scott Piercy, 5 under: Shot 65 today

• • •

Update #25: 4:51 p.m. EDT

Jim Furyk plays a poor second shot into the par-4 9th and then hits a chip out of the rough too softly, leading to a two-putt bogey from 15 feet.

That allowed Jason Dufner to take a two-shot lead after saving par with an 8-footer.

• • •

Update #24: 4:37 p.m. EDT

Incredible second shot by Jason Dufner on the par-4 8th, putting it within a foot of the hole and he moves to 11 under, one shot clear of Jim Furyk, who misses an 8-footer to match the birdie.

Scott Piercy cards a 5-under 65 after a bogey at 18. He had eight birdies on the round.

• • •

Update #23: 4:29 p.m. EDT

The final group is holding up under pressure.

Jason Dufner finds the long rough after a wayward tee ball, just advances it to the fairway, hits a great third shot to 10 feet and he drains the par putt to stay at 10 under.

Jim Furyk also misses the fairway, his second coming up short of the green and into the rough, nearly flies in his third and makes a 10-footer of his own for par to remain tied for the lead.

Jason Day finishes with three consecutive bogeys to card a 3-under 67 and finishes 3 under for the tournament.

• • •

Update #22: 4:21 p.m. EDT

Henrik Stenson misses a 5-footer for par at No. 7 and drops back to 7 under, three back of co-leaders Jason Dufner and Jim Furyk. Stenson finished runner-up at the Open Championship.

• • •

Update #21: 4:12 p.m. EDT

Jim Furyk nails a long birdie attempt on the par-3 6th hole to move into a share of the lead at 10 under, as Jason Dufner two-putts, the last of which dropped from 5 feet.

Ahead on No. 16, Scott Piercy makes his eighth birdie of the day (he has two bogeys) and moves back to 6 under for the tournament.

• • •

Update #20: 4:00 p.m. EDT

Jason Dufner hits an incredible second shot into the par-4 5th hole -- the hardest on the course -- to about 2 feet and takes the outright lead at 10 under after a two-putt par for Jim Furyk.

• • •

Update #19: 3:58 p.m. EDT

Scott Piercy drops his first shot since No. 2 at the par-3 15th and falls back to 5 under. Meanwhile, ahead on No. 16, Jason Day pays the price for finding the right rough and also bogeys to drop to 5 under.

• • •

Update #18: 3:46 p.m. EDT

Jim Furyk two-putts for par on the par-5 4th hole, while Jason Dufner makes birdie from 4 feet and there is now a tie for the lead at 9 under.

Scott Piercy misses a 6-footer for birdie on No. 14 and remains at 6 under on the day and tournament.

• • •

Update #17: 3:44 p.m. EDT

Graeme McDowell birdies the 18th hole to card a 4-under 66 and finish at 2 under for the tournament. He birdied five consecutive holes on his front nine on Sunday.

• • •

Update #16: 3:40 p.m. EDT

A triple-bogey at the par-4 5th hole -- his approach from the fairway hit the green but rolled back into the rocks/water -- and Rory McIlroy has fallen back to 1 under for the tournament.

• • •

Update #15: 3:36 p.m. EDT

Henrik Stenson just made a statement on the par-5 4th hole, draining a 20-footer for eagle to move to 8 under and one off the lead.

• • •

Update #14: 3:26 p.m. EDT

A pair of two-putt pars for Jason Dufner and Jim Furyk at the par-3 3rd hole, with Furyk retaining his one-shot lead.

Scott Piercy birdies the par-5 13th and moves to 6 under, three off the lead and tied with Henrik Stenson, Adam Scott and Jason Day.

• • •

Update #13: 3:26 p.m. EDT

Jason Day is on fire right now, nearly chipping in for eagle on the par-5 13th, settling for a tap-in birdie and his 6 under for the day and tournament, just three shots off the lead.

Fellow Aussie Adam Scott birdies the par-5 4th to also move to 6 under.

• • •

Update #12: 3:22 p.m. EDT

Jason Dufner takes an adventurous route to a par at No. 2, hitting his drive well right, getting a good break and hitting a sand wedge that finds the rough just above a greenside bunker, pops up a chip that settles 4 feet short and then makes the putt to stay at 8 under.

Jim Furyk plays it straightforward, finding intermediate rough, hitting the green and two-putting for par to stay at 9 under.

• • •

Update #11: 3:17 p.m. EDT

Rory McIlroy misses a incredible opportunity on the par-5 4th, missing a 3-footer for birdie and remains at 4 under. That one was a head-scratcher.

• • •

Update #10: 3:05 p.m. EDT

Jim Furyk finds the rough off the tee, has to lay up, but hits a great third shot to 8 feet and drains the par putt to remain at 9 under. That was an all-world par save.

Jason Dufner also finds the rough on No. 1, manages to get it to the green and two-putts for par to remain at 8 under.

Ahead on No. 12, Jason Day makes a 10-footer to go to 5 under.

• • •

Update #9: 3:05 p.m. EDT

It was a Swede Saturday at Oak Hill, but it was a rough start on No. 1 for Jonas Blixt and Henrik Stenson, who both scramble to just save bogey. Stenson is now 6 under and Blixt at 4 under.

• • •

Update #8: 3:03 p.m. EDT

Adam Scott erases his bogey at the first with a 10-footer for birdie on No. 2 to get back to 5 under.

Ahead of him on No. 3, Rory McIlroy holes a putt for birdie and moves to 4 under.

And, ahead of all of them on No. 11, Scott Piercy picks up a birdie from 5 feet on the par-3 11th to also move to 5 under.

• • •

Update #7: 2:55 p.m. EDT

Jason Day misses an opportunity to move to 5 under on No. 11, missing a 12-footer to the right and settles for par and five shots back of leader Jim Furyk, who just teed off.

• • •

Update #6: 2:50 p.m. EDT

Adam Scott misses a 4-footer to save par on No. 1 to drop back to 4 under for the tournament.

Meanwhile, ahead on No. 2, Rory McIlroy lips out for birdie and stays at 3 under, while Lee Westwood misses a slick 3-footer for par and falls back to 2 under.

• • •

Update #5: 2:44 p.m. EDT

There are plenty of low numbers out there today, as Scott Piercy just carded a 4-under 31 on his opening nine holes behind a birdie at No. 9. He is now 4 under for the tournament.

Jason Day also makes back-to-back birdies on Nos. 9 and 10 to move to 4 under. He's birded four of his last five holes.

• • •

Update #4: 2:39 p.m. EDT

Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood both miss the fairway at No. 1, but manage to scramble to pars, with Westwood getting up-and-down from a greenside bunker. They each stay at 3 under for the tournament.

• • •

Update #3: 2:28 p.m. EDT

Dustin Johnson opens with a birdie, making a 6-footer to move to 3 under on the tournament.

Meanwhile, Boo Weekley fired a 4-under 31 on his front nine -- including birdies at the tough Nos. 8-9 -- to move to 3 under for the tournament.

• • •

Update #2: 2:25 p.m. EDT

Keegan Bradley's run at the Oak Hill record of 63 set by Jason Dufner on Friday took a hit with a bogey at the par-4 14th hole and is now 5 under on his round with three holes to play after a par at No. 15.

Hideki Matsuyama picks up a birdie at the 15th to also move to 5 under on his round.

Both players are 2 under for the tournament and currently T-10.

• • •

Hole No. 18, Par 4, 497 yards

The back-nine has been much kinder to Tiger, who has managed to overcome some poor work off the tee to pick up three birdies and six one-putts.

Off the tee: Driver here for Tiger and it fades a bit right and into the intermediate cut of rough.

Approach shot: Tiger tries to hit a big cut into the green, but the ball sails left and he'll do good to get up-and-down for par.

Around the green: Tiger hits a great pitch shot to about 4 feet, pulling off a very tough shot.

On the green: And he drains it for his seventh consecutive one-putt to end the round.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (4 over for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Keegan Bradley has moved to 6 under on his round with a birdie on No. 13 and is 3 under for the tournament.

• • •

Hole No. 17, Par 4, 509 yards

Tiger's putter has saved face a bit here over the last five holes, but still faces two incredibly difficult obstacles in 17 and 18.

Off the tee: Tiger is playing military golf off the tee right now - left, right and this one is left. Will likely have tree troubles at the course's toughest hole.

Approach shot: Tiger takes fairway metal and hammers it up the right side, finding the rough in front of the green.

Around the green: Tiger hits a solid pitch shot to about 5 feet under the hole, as the ball checked a bit more than he wanted.

On the green: And he saves par, with the ball hitting the back of the cup. And that's six straight one-putts.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (4 over for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Keegan Bradley birdies Nos. 11 and 12 to move to 5 under on the round and 2 under for the tournament.

• • •

Hole No. 16, Par 4, 439 yards

All of a sudden, that's four one-putts in a row. Tough three-hole stretch coming in, including the 16th, which Tiger is 2 over on for the week.

Off the tee: With fairway metal, Tiger pushes his tee ball to the right, ricocheting off the tree and finding long rough. He definitely looks uncomfortable off the tee right now, and has stretched his back a few times.

Approach shots: Tiger has to chop out of the rough, putting it on the left side and he'll need to get up-and-down for par from wedge distance. With his third shot, Tiger leaves it about 2 feet left of the cup. Beautiful half-wedge shot.

On the green: Simple par here and a fifth consecutive one-putt.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (4 over for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Graeme McDowell has birdied five consecutive holes (Nos. 4-8) and has moved to 2 under for the tournament, currently T-9.

• • •

Hole No. 15, Par 3, 181 yards

Tiger has found a bit of a rhythm on the greens, with three consecutive one-putts.

Off the tee: Tiger plays it safe out to the left, leaving himself 20 feet to the pin on the right. Brooks Koepka finds the water.

On the green: And he gets another one, dropping into the heart of the cup. That's three birdies in four holes for the World No. 1.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (4 over for tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 14, Par 4, 323 yards

Tiger has played the par-5s this week at even par, with six pars, a birdie and a bogey. That's not very Tiger-like.

Off the tee: Tiger goes for it and pushes his drive to the right and into the gallery.

Second shot: Tiger's chip from some dried-out rough makes it to the green and will have 25 feet for birdie.

On the green: And he gets a long one to drop, curling in on the left side. Nice putt there.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over (5 over for tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 13, Par 5, 598 yards

That was only the eighth birdie of the tournament for Tiger. That won't win tournaments.

Off the tee: The tee box has been moved up a bit, so Tiger takes driver and attempts to clear the creek that cuts through the fairway. He sends it left, but looks like he is out of harm's way.

Second shot: Tiger has to simply use wedge to get back out to the fairway.

Approach shot: The ball flight looks good, but it comes up a half-club short and fails to hold the green. Will chip for birdie.

Around the green: Tiger actually chooses to putt the ball and he nearly makes it, sending it 2 feet past. He taps that in for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over (6 over for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Michael Thompson birdies Nos. 2 through 4 and has moved to 2 under for the tournament, seven shots back of Jim Furyk.

• • •

Hole No. 12, Par 4, 372 yards

Despite being 7 over for the day, Brooks Koepka is the only one with a birdie after an 8-footer at No. 11. So, there's always that.

Off the tee: Fairway hit here for Tiger, sliding it up the middle. Short iron upcoming.

Approach shot: Well done here, sticking it pin high and about 5 feet away for his first birdie of the day -- and the second in 30 holes.

On the green: After Brooks Koepka drains a 20-footer for a second consecutive birdie, Tiger also makes his for his first birdie and one-putt of the day.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over (6 over for tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 11, Par 3, 226 yards

Tim Clark aced this hole earlier today, but it's a tough pin to get at on the front left.

Off the tee: Tiger lands it about 3 yards too far and it goes on the other side of a ridge in the middle of the green instead of feeding back to the hole. Will have 50 feet for birdie.

On the green: This is his best two-putt of the day, putting his birdie attempt 2 feet to the right of the cup. Masterful pace.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 over (7 over for tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 10, Par 4, 429 yards

This group was a combined 11 over on the front nine (Koepka, 8 over; Tiger, 3 over). Ouch. Back nine can play easier, but Tiger will need four birdies to shoot his first round in the 60s at Oak Hill.

Off the tee: Tiger gets a nice kick out of the left rough and is in the intermediate cut.

Approach shot: Tiger hits his eighth green in regulation, but has 20 feet again for birdie. Not getting it close enough.

On the green: This birdie putt runs over the left edge and settles 4 feet past. Saves this par. And that's 21 putts with eight holes to play. Tiger has only one birdie over his last 28 holes at Oak Hill.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 over (7 over for tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 9, Par 4, 452 yards

Tiger has never shot under par at Oak Hill in a tournament. Today isn't looking like the day that'll change.

Off the tee: A second poor tee ball in a row, this one with driver and he overcooks it to the left. He's pretty ticked after that one.

Approach shot: And, for the second consecutive hole, he has to simply play it back out to the fairway. Tiger hits the flagstick on his third shot and it bounds away and he'll have 25 feet to save par.

On the green: Guess what? Nope, not a two-putt. It's a three-putt for double. Seven opening pars. A bogey and double to finish the front nine. And 19 putts.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 over (7 over for tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 8, Par 4, 428 yards

This is beginning to feel like Tiger simply trying to get through the round unscathed and head back to Florida for some time on the range.

Off the tee: First bad swing of the day for Tiger, sending it well left and into the long rough.

Approach shot: Tiger simply has to hack out of the rough and puts in the middle of the fairway. His third shot settles about 12 feet past the hole.

On the green: Still no one-putts and this one costs him a bogey.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over (5 over for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Keegan Bradley birdies three of his first four holes to move to even par on the tournament. Bradley won the 2011 PGA Championship and played his first three rounds with Tiger.

• • •

Hole No. 7, Par 4, 461 yards

Both Koepka and Tiger had great birdie chances at No. 6, but both seem to be a bit off on the greens. They are definitely firmer today, and will only get moreso as the day moves on.

Off the tee: Another fairway hit here. The game is looking more consistent today, but needs a putt to drop.

Approach shot: Nice second ball here, putting it 20 feet right of the flag.

On the green: Tiger gives the birdie attempt a good look, but it runs out of juice and it's a tap-in par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (4 over for tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 6, Par 3, 175 yards

Brooks Koepka suffered the same fate as Phil Mickelson at No. 5 -- a triple bogey. He's 6 over through five holes, while Tiger is even on the day.

Off the tee: Tiger stares this front pin down and gets it to 6 feet under the hole. First realistic look at birdie today.

On the green: Tiger pulls his putt and another two-putt par. His flatstick has not looked all that great since his opening nine holes on Thursday.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (4 over for tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 5, Par 4, 428 yards

It's been a fairly straightforward start for Tiger, but not so much for Brooks Koepka, who three-putts the 4th hole for his third bogey of the round.

Off the tee: Tiger takes fairway metal and splits the fairway. Much better looking swing there.

Second shot: From just over 165 yards, Tiger plays it to the middle of the green and will have 35 feet for birdie.

On the green: Nice birdie putt here, but it doesn't drop and he picks up his fifth consecutive two-putt par to start the round.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (4 over for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Gary Woodland finishes his round in just about three hours -- he was solo as the first group off the tee -- and reached the par-5 13th in two shots for the first time in Oak Hill tournament history. He fired an even-par 70, but is still dead last of those that made the cut. Phil Mickelson is also headed to his plane back to California after a 2-over 72 that leaves him 12 over for the tournament.

• • •

Hole No. 4, Par 5, 570 yards

Solid start, but a bit ho-hum at this point. It'll be interesting to see the chances he takes today considering he has nothing to lose being 13 shots off the lead.

Off the tee: Big stick here for Tiger and he pushes it a bit to the right, waking up the gallery a bit.

Second shot: Tiger simply has to lay up, as the lie is just too thick. He'll hit his third from the fairway.

Approach shot: Solid third shot here, leaving himself 18 feet from under the hole.

On the green: Another two-putt par, as the birdie putt burns the right edge.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (4 over for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Martin Kaymer has opened his round with birdies on three of his first four holes to move to 1 over for the tournament. Kaymer was in contention after back-to-back 68s to open the tournament, but a 78 on Saturday sent him out of contention.

• • •

Hole No. 3, Par 3, 214 yards

Tiger with a par-par start, while playing competitor Brooks Koepka starts bogey-bogey.

Off the tee: The greens are much firmer today, but Tiger holds the green and will have 25 feet from the left of the hole.

On the green: Tiger is aggressive with the putt and nearly pays off, but settles for another two-putt par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (4 over for tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 2, Par 4, 401 yards

A side note: Tiger isn't wearing a full red polo, with grey all along the back of the shirt.

Off the tee: Tiger splits the fairway here and should be able to attack the front-right pin.

Approach shot: Solid second shot, leaving it 25 feet past the hole.

On the green: Going downhill, Tiger sends his birdie putt about 6 feet past. He makes the comebacker to stay even on the day.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (4 over for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Somehow Phil Mickelson is 2 over for his round despite a triple and double on his card. Hunter Mahan has also fallen toward the bottom of the leaderboard, as he is 3 over through 12 holes and is now 9 over for the tournament.
