Mike Weir in the air again. He and Woods were tied through 54 holes. Tiger shot a Sunday 72 Weir shot 80 and Sergio Garcia shot 71 and finished a shot behind Woods. That was 19 years ago.
Koepka’s tee shot at 6 just rolls off the edge of the green but stays up and out of a bunker. Scott’s tee shot sails long and left. Tiger hits a decent chip and will have a 6-footer to make his par. Tiger has a quote “dreadful” lie on 7. He hits the green with his approach but it rolls off the back of the green.
Koepka hits his second at 1 to about 8 feet very similar to the spot Woods missed from. Here’s a look at Tiger’s approach into 2: At the par-3 3rd Tiger hits another unbelievable iron to 2 feet! He’ll have a near tap-in for birdie.
Adam Scott is taking a drop now in the deep rough. It’s all over but the engraving. A look at Tiger’s putt on 18. What a scene. Koepka’s tee shot on 18 his last real challenge is right down the middle. And once again Scott flips his tee ball left this one heading for the cart path. Looks like a champion’s walk is coming for Brooks.
This is a case where less is more. The fewer events the more weighty each one feels. If anything this schedule shift might be doing the playoffs a favor.
