Tiger’s putt for par catches a piece of the lip but stays out. Ouch. Missed it to the right. It’s his first bogey of the day and he drops to three under seven off the lead. Tiger’s pitch shot is away and it’s … OK. Comes up about 4 feet short. That’ll be for par on one of the toughest holes on the course.
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.
Rory drains a 5-footer for par to finish three under. Now Woods on the same line… Woods give his birdie putt a firm rap and it glides across the green settling to about 4 feet about the hole. He’ll have that close Round 2 with a par.
Rickie Fowler misses another birdie try at 14. He’s also stuck at -8 with Tiger. Oh no! Tiger MISSES his three-footer for birdie at 17! A devastating three-putt for Tiger who stays stuck at -8. Tiger powers his eagle putt past the hole at 17. Koepka saves par again at 13 to remain at -13.
Woods from 9 feet for bogey .. and he drains it. Bogey for Tiger bogey for Rory par for Thomas. On to 11. Woods for par…and he starts walking after it as soon as he hit. Comes up well short. That’s left for bogey. This is messy start for Tiger. Meanwhile McIlroy misses his par and taps for bogey.
