No. 1
The world's top-ranked player, Tiger Woods (above), was in position to win a major for the first time by coming from behind, but couldn't make a putt.

CBS's Sunday
Maybe Woods did beat Mickelson after all? Overnight ratings for the Sunday telecast were down almost 13% from 2005.

Augustans
Hometown boys Vaughn Taylor and Charles Howell III (left) both missed the cut, with Taylor finishing at five over and Howell dead last at 20 over par.

Mcs
Paul McGinley and British Amateur champion Brian McElhinney, both of Ireland, finished at 11 over, missing the cut by seven.

Australians
None of the nine men from Oz finished in the top 15, and only Ogilvy (right) got a whiff of the Sunday leader board.

Two-irons
Often replaced in favor of more lofted clubs, this hard-to-hit stick may be going the way of, well, the one-iron.
