          === Austin assessed 4-stroke penalty at PGA Championship ===
 
 Rochester,  NY (Sports Network) - Woody Austin was assessed a 4-stroke penalty
 at the PGA Championship Friday for having 15 clubs in his bag.
 
 The Sanderson Farms Championship winner discovered he had an extra club in his
 bag  while on the third hole and promptly reported himself to a rules official
 after completing his par putt.
 
 The  penalty, which under  rule 4-4 adds two strokes for each hole played with
 an  extra club to  a maximum of four strokes, dropped Austin to 4-over for the
 tournament.
 
 Austin  made up some of the penalty with back-to-back birdies at the fifth and
 sixth,  but then bogeyed the ninth to fall back to 3-over and currently sits a
 stroke above the projected cut line at the turn.
