Fowler just misses an eight-footer for par at 10. He drops down to -9 four shots back. Tiger taps in for another par at 14. Missed opportunity there. Koepka is starting to pull away. Here’s Koepka’s birdie putt at 9: Rickie Fowler is now tied for second with Woodland. Both trail Koepka by three.
Nary a mention of Adam Scott?! There will undoubtedly be some added emotional pressure on him was as he tries to memorialize his late countryman Jarrod Lyle but Bellerive sets up like a dream for him. Soft conditions + target golf = Scott’s happy place. He could and should be awfully dangerous tomorrow. With a 66 he wins by one. Michael nailed Tiger. Strong start shaky finish.
Goooood morning golf fans. How’d everyone sleep? Not well enough? Same. We’re going to get Round 2 started (for the second time) and we’ll be giving you wall-to-wall coverage of the featured group of Tiger Woods Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas. They’re about to get going now.
Koepka burns the edge with his long birdie putt at 12. A tap-in par for our leader to remain at -13. Fowler hits a poor chip from deep rough at 13. He’ll have a good 25 feet to save par.
Spieth on 10 after making 20-footers on back-to-back holes…comes up just short. He taps pars and remains seven under. Koepka drops another birdie and he’s alone in the lead at 11 under. And Rickie Fowler drops one to get to nine under. Birdies are just flying. First one to 20 under wins?
