Koepka heads into the final round with a two-shot lead over Adam Scott. Woodland will start Sunday three behind. Thanks for reading and join us again tomorrow for the final round live blog!
On the par-3 13th Woods rips an iron to the back of the green another solid solid shot. Looks like about 15 feet for birdie from there. Koepka drops the putt to reclaim the solo lead at -12 one ahead of Woodland.
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.
And Woods pours in the 5-footer for birdie! THat’s four birds in eight holes to start his round. He’s six behind the lead. Thomas and Rory also clean up birdies. On to the 9th. From the front bunker Rory blasts to tap-in range and that should be good enough for his first birdie of the day. That’ll end a run of 16 straight pars for Rors.
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.)
