Webb Simpson was just a simple bogey away from holding an all-time majors record at the 2013 PGA Championship yesterday.

Simpson finished with a very impressive 64, just short of the course record of 62 at Oak Hill. Jason Dufner, the leader of the tournament so far, shot a 63 yesterday.

62 was most definitely in Simpson's sights yesterday in Oak Hill.

"Yeah, it was in my head," Simpson said, via the New York Daily News. "I knew he was thinking about it. I didn't want to talk about it because I thought it would be the wrong thing to focus on coming in. This game is so funny. When you try to make birdies, it seems like you don't. It was there. It's like the elephant in the room."

Simpson was seven-under after hole No. 6 yesterday. He just need one more for the record, but ended up settling for bogey on No. 7. Fortunately, it was his only bogey of the day.

"I was thinking about it once I birdied six. I was thinking about the all-time major record and I was about 99-percent sure it was 63. It's hard, because on one hand you want to go for it. But you can't do that on a golf course this hard and I wasn't doing that at any point today. I was trying to be patient and trying to be conservative."

Simpson has yet to tee off at the time of this writing. He's so far under-4 for the tournament, behind Dufner by five strokes.
