PGA Championship Round 4 grades

In the final round, the Spaniard had an opportunity to back up his 66 on Saturday with a strong finish at Valhalla. On Sunday, he had a 2-over 73 to finish in a tie for 36th. It was his worst finish in a tournament since a tie for 38th in June at the U.S. Open.

Henrik Stenson    World Ranking: No. 4 | Scores: 66-71-67-66

With five birdies on his opening nine for a five-under 30, Stenson grabbed a piece of the lead of Sunday. But failures to birdie both par-5s on the back nine and a bogey at the 14th ultimately cost him a chance to win the tournament. Still, it was a great week for the world's No. 4 ranked player.

Justin Rose    World Ranking: No. 5 | Scores: 70-72-67-67

Even par through his first two rounds, Rose had back-to-back 67s on the weekend to finish in a tie for 24th. His six birdies on Sunday matched his third-round output in that category.

Bubba Watson    World Ranking: No. 7 | Scores: 70-72-73-72

With a 1-over 72 on Sunday, the two-time Masters champion had his third over-par round of the week to finish in a tie for 65th. On Saturday, Bubba apologized for his childish behavior during the rain on Friday. He has the FedEx Cup playoffs and the Ryder Cup remaining on his schedule. Hopefully, for the U.S. side, his best golf of the year is still yet to come.

Jim Furyk    World Ranking: No. 8 | Scores: 66-68-72-66
