What score will win the PGA Championship?
The 2013 major season has been wicked -- Adam Scott talks about what score will win the PGA Championship.
The majors so far this year have been downright bloody.
The Masters saw its worst score (9 under) win since Trevor Immelman won with 8 under in 2008. US Open champion Justin Rose shot 1 over at Merion, which tied the highest winning score at that tournament since Angel Cabrera posted 5 over at Oakmont in 2007.
Then only a miraculous finish from Phil Mickelson at the British Open saved that tournament from seeing a winner not under par for just the second time this century.
So what will happen at the PGA Championship?
Last time this tournament turned to Oak Hill, Shaun Micheel posted 69-68-69-70 to shoot 4 under (par is 70). Only Micheel and two others, Chad Campbell and Tim Clark, broke par that week.
In 1980, Jack Nicklaus shot 70-69-66-69 to finish at 6 under. That year he was the only golfer who broke par.
So we could be looking at our third consecutive major winner finishing at or around par.
Adam Scott pointed this out in his press conference on Monday.
"Par is going to be a good score, and that's something I'm going to tell myself when I walk off a green and feel disappointed with a par, that I shouldn't be."
He said it depends on Mother Nature, though.
"I don't know, it may take a couple more. It's all weather dependent obviously, but it's going to be around the mark. It's obvious that that's kind of the benchmark around here, and I would assume nothing will be too different this time around."
