Here’s a full recap of Tiger’s round to this point. It’s been some kind of ride. Woods’s birdie putt on 10 is away…and it stops about a foot short. Safe par. Meanwhile Thomas Pieters knocks in a birdie on 16 to get to 12 under. It’s a sprint to the finish and it is glorious.
Tiger taps in for birdie at 8 his third of the day. He moves back to -10 still two shots behind Koepka. Koepka sinks his birdie to move back to -12. Big one for him. Adam Scott also birdied 7 to move to -10.
Looking at how dead the sports calendar is these days it’s kind of incredible the PGA gave up its August date so from that standpoint alone it’s a good move. And three weeks is a better change – how much foreplay can fans be expected to endure?
