On 9 no need for a driver and Woods hangs back with iron off the tee. It finds the the short grass. All system’s go. Tiger’s putt from 6 feet 5 inches….and it’s good! That’s five birdies on the front nine and Woods is within two. Getting louder and louder out there.
Rory goes first and lays back with an iron. Tiger does the same. Thomas rips the big dog and it settles just left of the green in a pretty good spot to pitch from. The tees are up on 11 and the par-4 is playing 297 yards with a lake on the right. The group is going to let the green clear so expect to see some drivers here.
Koepka hits a wedge to 20 feet at 12. Tiger smashes a driver down the middle of the fairway at the par-5 17th. He needs a birdie here to keep up with Koepka. Fowler knocks it over the green with his first at the par-3 13th.
