With Scott entering the season's final major two clear of McDowell, they tied at the PGA Championship on 2 under par.

The Aussie ends the year without a major, but was the season's best performer in the major championships. He played all 16 rounds in an aggregate major score of 6 under par.

With his final-round performance at Kiawah Island, Ian Poulter jumped to third among the dozen players to complete all four majors this year. Of the 17 players entering the PGA Championship having played through all three prior majors on the calendar, five missed the cut at the Ocean Course.

1. -6 - Adam Scott
2. -4 - Graeme McDowell
