Woods with an iron and that one flies just over the green onto the back fringe. He might be a little amped up. Still it’ll be a straight-forward chip from there. At 4 Koepka with a loooong birdie attempt that just misses. He’ll par and stay -10. And on 9 Spieth drops another one to get to seven under. The career Grand Slam remains in play here on Saturday afternoon.
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.
I don’t imagine Tiger will be a factor in this great championship when the big trophy is heaved Sunday night — we hope! — but since you asked: long Saturdays on wet courses where others complain has always been good for him and should be again.
