Genuinely perplexed Scott asked where he had thrown a club and his playing partner told him “On the 5th hole. You threw your club out of the bunker.” Scott said “I didn’t throw it. I tossed my club to my bag after hitting out because I had to rake the bunker. Why would I throw the club when I got it up and down?”
Scott nearly chips in from the rough right of the green but it burns the edge. Keopka undaunted cans the 7-footer. That was absolutely cold blooded. He’s ahead by 2 shots with two to play including a par 5. This is his event to lose. Koepka’s tee shot on 16. Pure.
On the par-4 471 yard 10th Woods takes driver and tried to hit a little fade but he tugs it left again. He’ll have to play from the deep stuff again. Good angle to the hole from there but this one will depend on the lie. Woods for birdie…it’s an uphill left-to-right bender..and it just misses on the low side. Still safe two-putt par to open.
It’s no small thing to shoot a final-round 66 amongst deafening roars for a charging Tiger. Koepka never let up and while I agree his incredible birdies on 15 and 16 were the real death blows the birdie trifecta on Nos.
Woods take a sand wedge and blasts it back into the fairway. He’ll have a chance to reach the par 5 from there. The good news Tiger’s ball has been found on land. The badit’s in a clump of leave and dirt. This will be an adventure. Meanwhile Scott misses Koepka makes and he leads by 1.
