KIAWAH ISLAND, SC (WCSC/AP) - Tiger Woods played The Ocean Course on Tuesday morning 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. 

Practice rounds will be played Monday through Wednesday at The Ocean Course. The 94th PGA Championship will be played Thursday through Sunday.
