VERONA, New York -- Tiger Woods has pulled out of a charity event for good friend Notah Begay because of his ailing back.
The Notah Begay III Foundation Challenge said that Gary Woodland will replace Woods in the field Wednesday at Turning Stone Resort.

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey -- Kevin Stadler teed off just after breakfast and finished right before dinner. It took him nearly 11 hours to complete a 7-under 64 at Liberty National, his lowest score on the PGA Tour since the first week of February. And he still isn't guaranteed to be the first-round leader at The Barclays.
The FedEx Cup playoffs got off to a soggy start Thursday with two rain delays that lasted six hours.

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey -- This might be the best way to measure Tiger Woods' season. Sam Snead is getting more attention than Jack Nicklaus.
Woods said again at The Barclays this already has been a great season, and it's difficult to argue. His five wins -- including two World Golf Championships and The Players Championship -- are three more than anyone else on the PGA Tour. He is leading all the right indicators, such as the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average, the money list ($2.6 million more than anyone else) and the No. 1 seed going into the FedEx Cup playoffs.
The standard for Woods, however, always has been the majors, and he was shut out for the fifth straight year.

PITTSFORD, New York -- The red shirt and the size of the galleries were the same. So, too, in an odd sort of way, was the early departure.
Tiger Woods was gone from the PGA Championship by early afternoon, 4 over for the tournament and miles from Oak Hill by the time the trophy presentation began. He always said majors were the events he wanted to be measured by, so it should have come as no surprise when a fan reminded him of that, yelling "Masters 2014!" even as Woods trudged his way up the final fairway.

PITTSFORD, New York (AP) -- Ten things to know about the PGA Championship, to be played August 8-11 at Oak Hill Country Club.
TIGER'S LAST CHANCE
This is the 10th time Tiger Woods has come to the PGA Championship looking for his first major of the year. He only avoided a shutout in 1999 and 2007. A failure to win at Oak Hill would mean his fifth straight season without a major.
