Wild weather, late drama, a Monday finish and a final-hole victory made for a memorable week the last time the PGA Championship was last held at Baltusrol in 2005. Thunderstorms forced the tournament to be extended to a fifth day in New Jersey, where Phil Mickelson prevailed to snatch victory from a bunched leaderboard.The 2004 Masters champion was part of a six-way tie for the lead after the opening day, before recovering from a double-bogey at the start of his second nine on Friday to card a 65 and open up a three-stroke lead. Ways to watch How to watch the 98th PGA Championship Mickelson struggled to a two-over 72 on Saturday as the chasing pack took advantage, with Davis Love moving alongside him with a third consecutive 68 and Thomas Bjorn posting a record-equalling 63 to get within one.The American struggled in tough scoring conditions during the final round, posting four bogeys in a five-hole stretch around the turn, but birdied the 13th to regain his outright advantage just before play was halted due to the threat of lightning. Mickelsons win was his fourth of the calendar year Steve Elkingston and Bjorn, who drained a 30-footer at the 13th, lurked one stroke back, while defending Vijay Singh and Love were alongside Woods on two under. Woods, who had only made the cut on the mark in his pursuit of a third major win of the year, followed a third-round 66 with a two-under-par 68 shortly before the weather brought an early end to play. Woods finished the week tied-fourth Despite holding the clubhouse lead, Woods did not stick around to see if his total of two under was enough and instead returned home on Sunday night, as the final six groups returned to complete their final rounds on Monday.Bjorn, with four holes to play, lost ground by running up a bogey-five at the 15th but bounced back by holing an 18-footer at the 17th, as Mickelson was unable to get up-and-down to save par at the short 16th. That left the pair part of a three-way tie on three under alongside Elkington, who had closed with three consecutive pars to complete a final-round 68.Having left his approach at the par-five last in the sand, Bjorn hit a smart recovery but saw his 15-foot birdie try brush the edge and stay out of the cup. Bjorn couldnt find the final-hole birdie required to force a play-off Mickelson also missed the green in two as he ended in the rough, only for the American to execute a perfect flop shot to leave a tap-in four for victory.It was an amazing week, Mickelson said after his win, with victory being his second of five major titles.Who will win the 98th PGA Championship?

Ousmane Dembele Jersey . -- Jim Furyk was 10 shots worse and right where he wanted to be Saturday in the BMW Championship.WASHINGTON -- After his last start, Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg said his mechanics werent right. Tuesday night he was finely tuned. Strasburg bounced back from his worst outing of the season with 7 2-3 strong innings, and Jayson Werth had two doubles and three RBIs in the Nationals 7-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies. "I just tried to execute pitches better. I wasnt trying to reinvent the wheel," he said. "I think I wanted to go out there and just trust myself, and just have a little bit finer focus. . I feel like I was able to keep the ball down a little bit." Anthony Rendon added a two-run double for Washington, which has won four straight. Strasburg (7-6) tied his career high by allowing seven earned runs in 4 2-3 innings in his last start -- a loss in Milwaukee -- and was 0-2 with a 7.27 ERA over his last three. Tuesday night he struck out eight and walked one while giving up one run. The Rockies didnt get a runner past second until DJ LeMahieus homer in the eighth. "I think strike one is probably the biggest difference," manager Matt Williams said. "He got ahead of a lot of hitters tonight. His curveball was effective, his changeup was effective. Went deep in the game. He threw a lot of pitches, but he was in command." Strasburg was lifted after walking Corey Dickerson with his 111th pitch. Tuesday night also was a bounce back game for Werth, who was 7 for 52 in his last 13 coming in. He doubled home two runs in the first, another in the fourth and walked twice. "(I) was here late last night watching video with Rick Schu, our hitting coach," Werth said. "Today, had a pretty good mindset going into the game and we made a minor adjustment, just kind of shorten (my swing) up a little bit." Washington has scored seven runs in three straight games, albeit the last two against the pitching staff with baseballs worst ERA. Bryce Harper went 1 for 5 in his second game back from the disabled list, and every Washington starter hit safely except Ian Desmond. "Theres not an easy out one thru eight," Strasburg said. "Its our job as pitchers to go out tthere and keep it close and let our (hitters) go out there and win the game.dddddddddddd" Christian Friedrich (0-3) allowed five runs in 3 1-3 innings for Colorado, which has lost 13 of 15. "Every day you cant worry about what happened yesterday," Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau said. "Youre not going to change it. If you start thinking that way, thats when you get in trouble. When you can put today behind us and come back and try and win a game tomorrow and start over, thats what good teams are able to do." Friedrich was making his third start since being called up June 21 and struggled once again, allowing five hits while walking four and striking out four. Overall, hes given up 14 earned runs and 21 hits in 13 1-3 innings. He struggled with his control early and the Rockies were quickly behind. Denard Span and Rendon walked to open the first, and Werth hit a smash past third baseman Ryan Wheeler, scoring both runners. Werth went to third on an infield single by Adam LaRoche and scored on Ryan Zimmermans sacrifice fly to make it 3-0. "Tough to play from behind against Strasburg. We got down early, made it tough," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. Strasburg helped Washington break it open when he doubled past a diving Brandon Barnes in right with one out in the fourth. Span singled Strasburg to third and moved to second on a wild pitch. Rendon then greeted reliever Chad Bettis with a double to left, increasing the lead to 5-0. Werth singled to score Rendon and later came home on a wild pitch. NOTES: In middle of 20 straight days with a game, Weiss rested SS Troy Tulowitzki and OF Charlie Blackmon.
