It appears that the guy who won the Masters in April might be rounding into shape for the PGA Championship next week at Oak Hill.

"It was a good round," he said. "Anything in the 60s is a good score around here no matter what the conditions are. There's always plenty of trouble. My game is sharpening up to where I want it to be, so I'm happy about that so far."

Scott could have been even sharper. He was 5-under heading to the 18th hole when he picked up his only bogey of the day. He missed the green to the right with his approach and then failed to get up and down.

"I was nearly bogey-free today. I just dropped that one on the last," he said. "That's good golf around here. And it's also good to get those rounds in before a major next week where dropped shots are so costly."

Most players, including Scott, come to the Bridgestone because it's a limited field (73 players) with a rich purse ($8.75 million), a huge first-place check ($1.5 million) — and no cut.

But they also like coming to an historic, tree-lined layout which offers at least a glimpse of what they might face in the year's final major championship.

Scott believes he made strides this week to contend next week.

"I've done what I needed to do the last couple of days," he said. "I'm going to go and hit some more balls tonight and keep the good feelings. I've been driving it a little better since Thursday, and I feel it's getting to where I would like it to be. By next Thursday, I can be really sharp."
