Tiger Woods and Gary Woodland are on the 1st tee at Bellerive. Woodland has the honorhe knocks a low long-iron into the fairway. Tiger next… Important update from one of our reporters at Bellerive:
Now if you want to compare eras let’s talk about what Hogan would have done in this era. Maybe a Zach Johnson type? But you can’t say that. The Hogan mythology is just too strong. And for various reasons I won’t mention here people feel freer to take shots at Tiger.
And the best news is if he ever tires of winning majors he can parlay his square jaw and bulging biceps into a starring role in a Marvel action movie. (@dylan_dethier)One thing’s for surehis rise will be less underappreciated now. That’s what happens when you fend off Tiger Woods.
Koepka chooses putter from the collar at 6 and runs in a good 4 feet past the hole. Another knee-knocker for par awaits. Tiger makes his putt at 7 for another huge par save. Now he needs to start making birdies again. He’s two back.
Woods from 100 yards up the hill…not his best shot. A little left and short of the stick and it spins and zips backward a good 50 feet from the cup. The 12th is a 280-yard par 4 and Woods is taking no chance. Iron off the tee and it’s in the short grass.
