LOUISVILLE - Graham DeLaet gave it a good run, but in the end the birdie binge around a soggy Valhalla Golf Club threw a wet blanket over his chances.

It was clear early on in the day that you had to go low if you were to have any shot in this PGA Championship, but the Weyburn, Sask., native just didn’t have his ‘A’ game on Sunday.

“It was just kind of a little bit sloppy, I just felt like all day I just wasn’t really in control of anything,” DeLaet said of his final round. “It wasn’t way off but I mean I missed some drives I felt comfortable with standing over, a couple sloppy chips, and to three-putt the last two kind of leaves a sour taste in your mouth.”

DeLaet started the day at 8-under, five back of Rory McIlroy’s lead, and struggled through his front nine. He got it to 10-under at one point on the back nine, but bogeyed 17 to finish the day with a 1-under par 70.
