Both Woodland and Koepka make clutch putts at 16 to save par. They remain at -9 and -11 respectively. Koepka blows his chip well past the hole at 16. He’ll have to sink a good 10-footer to avoid his third bogey in a row.
To return to my first theme the scores are low and going lower and you have to drive it in play (not his strength) stake it (is his strength) make the 10-footers (not his strength). I’m digging Tiger’s whole 2018 vibe as player and man. But I don’t see him doing something amazing here.
With his next bunker shot Woodland sails the green AGAIN! He’s ended up in his own foot prints from his first bunker shot. Yikes. Woodland’s bunker shot sails right over the green into another bunker. Kisner has a much better result.
Here’s a look at Tiger’s chip from the last hole. Tiger pulls driver on 5 hits it well but it barely trickles into the right rough. We will see how the lie is. McIlroy is two over on the day (three bogeys one birdie) and one under overall through seven holes today.
The cracks in Koepka’s game are few and far between and it will take a seriously epic round to beat him. I don’t see it happening. Kopeka claims his third major in 14 months at 15 under. Tiger 4th at 11 under. Welcome to Moving Day at the 2018 PGA Championship. We are following all of Saturday’s action at Bellerive Country Club with our Live Blog.
