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.
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.
Putting from the same tier and similar line as Woods JT leaves his lag about 8 feet short. Let’s see if Tiger learned something there. Woods with a 7-iron…and it finds the green but only the front tier with the pin tucked in the back. It’ll be a long lag from there.
