KEEP THAT CARD

Tiger Woods: In the final group at a major for the first time since the 2009 PGA Championship at Hazeltine, a steely-eyed Woods never flinched on Sunday, shooting a 2-under 70 to finish 13 under.

TOSS THAT CARD

Francesco Molinari: The 36-year-old Italian went 49 consecutive holes without a bogey at one point during the tournament. But a couple of bad swings erased all that good work in a hurry on Sunday. His 74 left him tied for fifth.

KEY HOLE

Par-3, 155-yard No. 12: Four of six players in the last two groups dumped tee shots in the water at the perilous 12th hole in the heart of Amen Corner. Brooks Koepka, Molinari, Tony Finau and Ian Poulter all wound up with double bogeys.

Number of the day

31: Players who won majors during Woods’ Grand Slam drought from 2008 to ’18, from Padraig Harrington to Koepka.
