Good news, bad news for Mahan


AKRON, Ohio – In his title defense at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Hunter Mahan posted scores of 71-69-72-69 to finish in the middle of the pack.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that he can now look forward to even bigger event at this week’s PGA Championship.

“I feel pretty good,” he said Sunday. “The game is actually is pretty good order. I’m just not scoring as well as I’m hitting it, so I’ve got to work on that. The important thing now is that I’ve never seen Atlanta, so I have to go learn that golf course and figure out the best way to play it.”

After finishing in the top-40 at three of last year’s four majors, Mahan has yet to make a cut at any of the first three so far this year.
