PGA Championship 2012: Who’s in the final group: Tiger or Pettersson?

Tiger Woods and Carl Pettersson wrapped up 36 holes at the PGA Championship at approximately the same time on Friday at the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island. Both finished at 4 under par.

With Vijay Singh, shooting 3-under 69 in the morning wave, as the first into the clubhouse at 4 under par, which of the Nike staffers will be in the final group with the 49-year-old Fijian?

Despite Joost Luiten being the lone player in the field not to finish his second round on Friday, the PGA of America has decided to put Tiger Woods in the final group at 3 p.m. with Vijay Singh. Luiten returns to the course at 7:30 a.m. to play the 18th hole. Then a cut will then be made official.

Carl Pettersson will play with Ian Poulter, who is alone in fourth at 3 under par.
