KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. -- Tiger Woods has played The Ocean Course as he gets ready for next week's PGA Championship.

Course officials said Woods, Adam Scott and Graeme McDowell got in some practice this week before the year's final major. The PGA Championship starts Aug. 9.

Woods and Scott are playing in the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone event in Akron, Ohio, starting Thursday. Woods has won the event seven times, while Scott is the defending champion.

Woods will be seeking his first major tournament victory since the 2008 U.S. Open when he comes to Kiawah Island. Scott led much of the way in last month's British Open before bogeys on his last four holes gave that title to Ernie Els.

McDowell was the U.S. Open winner in 2010.
