Woods still had a shot at birdie, but this is where he was unlucky.
Scott jumps 31 places in the world rankings to 45th, while his new position of 70th on the FedEx Cup standings ensures he continues a ideal record of advancing to the US PGA Tour's playoffs since the series was created in 2007.
A different part of the process than what it felt like at the British Open, when Woods had a lead and finished sixth.
"The greens were getting fuzzy, they're getting slow, and I didn't hit the putts quite hard enough", Woods said.
He shot 4-under 66 to reach 8 under.
His low round of the week came paired with Tiger Woods on Saturday amongst an enormous gallery.
Whether you blame the PGA, Sky, or the regulators for trying to input some competition to Sky for the reason we had no TV coverage of the year's final major is irrelevant really.
The Florida native is now one of just 46 players in golf's history to have won three or more majors in their career. He just stood behind me and was like, yup, that's ideal. "It looks like I'm going to come up a little short".
Woods birdies the 15th, he's now back to one behind the front pair.
Scots ex-footballer at centre of TV anti-Manchester United 'agenda' controversy
Manchester United begins its season off on the right foot, with World Cup-winner Paul Pogba scoring alongside Romelu Lukaku. Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Fellaini and Jesse Lingard may yet be involved against Leicester tonight.
Three-time major victor Jordan Spieth, needing only the PGA to complete a career Grand Slam, opened birdie-birdie but took a double bogey at the par-3 sixth then followed that with three consecutive birdies. He had a lot of putts that didn't go in as well - 64 looked pretty easy, to be honest. "But I didn't play fantastic". "It kind of pushes you to step up your game". "The people around me, they know who I am, and that's really all I care about".
Woods provided the thrills Sunday - a fist-pumping, club-slamming, roller-coaster ride of a final round in which he threatened from beginning to end but couldn't knock Koepka out of the lead, or deny him the trophy.
Furyk was not willing to say what appears certain for everyone else: Woods will be in France for the September 28-30 matches with golf clubs. The roars were heard all over the golf course. "Naturally, I think it's physiological to have a low after such a high".
Soon, perhaps those fans should be cheering for Koepka - and with the interest surrounding Wood's resurgence likely to build at every tournament, it should be easy for this bright talent to capitalise. The arrival sent Twitter into a frenzy, with the 14-time major champion captivating the golfing world without hitting a shot.
Sunday's play will decide the victor of the fourth and final major of the golfing season with the PGA Championship itself moving to a May date for the 2019 season.
"Three majors at 28, it's a cool feeling".
After a shaky start to the week, Finau finished strong with three birdies on his last five holes to finish in the 60s for the third straight day with a 68 for 3-under-par 277 total. I'd really like to see him win a regular event first though because I think that would make a huge difference the next time he's in-the-mix at a major and that's certainly not beyond him. And Scotty played unbelievably well and so did Tiger.
"It would be great if he's (playing) on the team", Thomas said. Barring a collapse from Scott and Koepka, that should be his chances of a win today gone.
It was not to be, but Scott was happy with his overall display in a performance that hints at a return to the top. "The putting was phenomenal, and the rest of the game's moving in the right direction".
