On 8 Rickie Fowler pitches it close and kicks in the birdie on the par 5 to get to -10 the third player to reach double digits under par. Woods now from the fairway and he finds the back tier of the green. Another solid iron shot. He’ll have about 10 feet left for birdie.
As we catch our breath a look at the leaderboard: Koepka -11 Woodland -10 Kisner and Fowler -9 Tiger part of a pack at -8. And Woods drops the par putt! Punctuated by a mini fist pump. That’s the first time he’s parred the hole in three rounds. He’s still eight under right in the thick of it.
They’re on the par-5 8th. Woods has a flip wedge to reach the green in 3. …and he spins it in there to about 5 feet. He hit a few of those in warm-ups today. Now he’ll have that for his fourth birdie of his second round.
