Tiger rips a monster 4-iron onto the green with his second shot at the par-5 17th and watches it roll within 15 feet! He’ll have a great look at eagle. Fowler misses his long birdie at 13 to drop to -8. He’s now tied with Tiger five shots back.
Koepka leaves his tee shot at the par-3 13th in deep rough on the back left of the green. He hits a decent chip from there but he’ll have a good 5 feet to save par. When Tiger’s on in two…
Woods’s par putt never sniffs the hole. That hurts. Looked like a misread. Woods drops back to 3 over. Woods’s lag all things considered is strong. It runs about 5 feet past. That’s left for par.
At 3 Kisner for birdie…comes up about 2 revolutions short. He’ll stay -8. And charging up ahead is none other than Jordan Spieth who kicks in a birdie on 8 to move to -6. Things are happening at Bellerive.
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.
