Scott and Koepka find the green at 15 and Koepka is closest with about 10 feet left. Woods for birdie on 16. 20 footer…it’s on the way…and it comes up a little short. Died off while taking the break. He taps for par and heads to the par 5 17th. This would be a good time for an eagle.
Koepka is cold-blooded. This stoicism throughout the round was an apt prelude to the way he stripped the final moments of any drama. He played a game with which a number of modern players are familiar but without any serious wildness. As the afternoon wore on I kept thinking they needed to find a harder game for him to play.
Golfers are like reporters. Their stock-in-trade is facts. The story of the golfer’s round is bound to the number of strokes the golfer took and to the places from which he or she played.
