I’m with Alan. For starters the guy is in the final group! Here’s the thing he’s playing for fellow Aussie Jarrod Lyle — “it would be more than twice the thrill for me” to win this week he said — and I believe in these sorts of things working out.
Fair point on the creakiness but the best scenario for Woods would’ve been no storm and no weather delay at all. Friday was quite possibly the softest most gettable setup in major championship history. Hard to know if the elements will conspire to make it equally inviting on Saturday. (Although I suppose it’ll still be soft.)
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.
