Koepka misses a 15-footer for par at 5 to drop to -11. He now shares the lead with defending champion Justin Thomas. Tiger is starting to show some cracks too. He hits an iron off the tee at 7 and misses the fairway right. Fowler bogeys the 5th to fall to -8.
The fact that his mental game can still approach that of peak-Tiger. Woods said so himself after the round; all across the front nine he was relying mostly on his mind. Still as great as his round was what Sunday also showed us was just how hard he’s going to have to continue grinding if he’s going to win.
Oh man Woods takes driver on the par 5 because you have to take a driver on the par 5 and he comes out of it. The ball crashes into the trees to the right and there’s a stream over there. We’ll see where it ends up. Woods is furious with himself. It’ll all depend on the lie (if there’s a lie).
