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.
That didn’t take long. Defending champ Justin Thomas birdies the 1st hole and he’s to seven under three off the lead. Spieth is three under for the tournament through four holes but he just stuck it close at 5. Should make birdie and jump to four under.
I think with this guy there’s always a visual difference between when he’s hanging on and grinding and when he’s actually dialed in. It felt like he was getting dialed in today and I would have expected him to finish around four or five under. That being said I agree with Shipnuck it’s better than jumping back out there for four or five holes in the evening.
