Ryder Cup watch

Phil Mickelson clinched the No. 8 spot when neither Bo Van Pelt nor Steve Stricker could make a late run Sunday. Woods was No. 1 in the standings. Also qualifying were Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley, Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar.

Ode to Rich Beem

The 2002 PGA champ at Hazeltine broke par for the first time in four rounds with a 71 and tied Y.E. Yang, the 2009 Hazeltine winner, at 291.

Different strokes

Carl Pettersson was assessed a two-shot penalty Sunday because a leaf moved on the opening hole. Pettersson was not notified until he left the fourth tee. Zach Johnson was penalized a stroke on the 18th hole -- his ninth hole of the final round -- when his ball moved after he addressed it. Johnson called it to the attention of officials, who couldn't find conclusive video evidence the ball had moved. Still, Johnson took the penalty, a triple-bogey 7 on the hole and a 79 for the round.

Looking ahead

The 2013 PGA Championship returns to Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y., for the first time since 2003, when Shaun Micheel won his only PGA Tour title.
