Woods, Mickelson still struggling

PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- The top two players in the world, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, are playing the back nine at Oak Hill right now as non-factors in the PGA Championship.

Woods continues to struggle with his putter. He has just made the turn 2 over and is 3 over for the tournament -- 12 strokes behind Jason Dufner, who tees off at 2:55 p.m. ET. The world No. 1 has made two bogeys and seven pars.

Mickelson, who won The Open Championship last month, is further down the leaderboard at 5 over for the tournament. He birdied his third hole but  then bogeyed the par-5 fourth, tripled No. 7 and bogeyed No. 9 to turn in 39. He just birdied the 12th and is 3 over for the day.

Oak Hill is yielding some good scores, though, on a cool, sun-kissed and fall-like day.

Dustin Johnson started the day at 3 over but has gotten into red numbers for the week with a round of 65. He made the turn in 1 under and then got hot on the back nine, making four  birdies in a seven-hole stretch and now is 2 under for the tournament.
