2013 PGA Championship: Tee times, pairings for Sunday's round

Stuart Franklin

The final round of the season's final major will feature plenty of big names out in the afternoon, just not the top two players in the world, who will be bolting town on their private jets while the leaders are still out on the course.

Ten years after winning his first major at Olympia Fields, Jim Furyk will play in the Sunday final pairing at the PGA Championship. Furyk will be joined by fellow American Jason Dufner, two of the game's best ball strikers who have distinguished themselves throughout the week at Oak Hill.

Furyk can become second straight player in his 40s to win a major, which hasn't happened since 1986. But he'll be up against a recent history of shaky Sunday performances at some big events -- last year featured particularly brutal finishes at the U.S. Open, the WGC-Briddgestone, and the Ryder Cup. Those nervy endings and his age are the narratives and perception he's been fighting all weekend, and he was quickly dismissive of what he called all the negativity in the media room. A win would be his first since the 2010 Tour Championship in Atlanta.

Dufner has own his own history of Sunday trouble, specifically at this event. It was at the 2011 PGA Championship where he gave away a five-shot lead in four holes at Atlantic Athletic Club. He would eventually lose in a playoff to Keegan Bradley, now one of his closer friends on tour. The Duf also has one of the spottier weekend scoring averages on the PGA Tour, but he hung in on Saturday to stick with Furyk at the top of the leaderboard. He rebounded admirably from a double bogey at the fifth hole, and then saved a critical par on his last putt of the day to clinch the spot in the Sunday final group:

Two players who will be done playing before that final pairing ever hits a tee shot are Phil Mickleson and Tiger Woods. Mickelson tried to go big on Saturday in a desperate attempt to get back into it and have a slight chance, even putting driver, which he's shunned all summer, back in the bag. But it blew up and he shot a 78 to tumble all the way down to second-to-last place. He tees off at 8:35 a.m. ET, and will probably he on the private jet back to California while Dufner and Furyk are still on the driving range.

Tiger's round wasn't quite as bad as Phil's, but he also lost more strokes and continued his ugly form from the first two days in Rochester. It was his highest round so far, a 3-over 73 to add more fuel to the media narrative that Woods can no longer cut it on the weekends at the majors. Tiger is playing for pride and to break bar for the first time this week, going out at 10:45 a.m. with young up-and-comer Brooks Koepka. Woods is playing out the string, and he'll be bolting town well before there's a resolution, going back to Florida and another sixth-month wait for the next majors season.

Even with those top two players in the world out of contention, there are still plenty of big names and the creme of the world rankings out in the afternoon on CBS. Here's the full tee sheet for Sunday's final round at the PGA Championship:
