From the center of the short grassWoods carves a 3-wood around the corner and onto the front of the green. That was sweet. He’ll have about 30 feet for eagle on the par 5. Woods with a driver and that’s another fairway. Last couple swings with that club have looked really good.
Unfortunately a lot. It’s a huge bummer to lose that in-the-zone momentum and nearly impossible to reclaim it when you’ve been interrupted. Can he still have a great back nine on Saturday? Sure. But I think we’ll all wonder what could have been if he were able to continue what he started this afternoon.
Sunday Sunday at Bellerive Raceway: Tiger goes out in 30 takes over the leaderboard and the tournament for a nanosecond slumbers home in 37 — ouch city — and in the end is an afterthought (if Tiger Woods can ever be an afterthought). Brooks Koepka shoots a Steady Eddie round of even par (that is 68 — level for him) and wins by a three-ish.
Koepka at 15 under. Tiger finishes T3 at 12 under. Good god is that Rickie Fowler’s music?! Y’all have Koepka covered but there’s a host of top sticks within four shots of the lead. I think there’s a good chance Koepka stalls while Rickie takes the W at 14 under two shots ahead of Tiger Woods.
Can anyone catch leader Gary Woodland who made it to 10 under on Friday? Follow along below to see for yourself. Koepka and Woodland clean for par at 18 and with that the third round of the 2018 PGA Championship is complete.
