Tiger Purrs his way into contention
Tiger Woods took full advantage of moving day and climbed up the leaderboard today and now sits at -8 and is tied for 6th as we move into Sunday. Tiger shot a blistering 31 on the front of his third round today but just could not make any putts down the stretch to close the gap between himself and Brooks Koepka. Tiger had a good shot to move into sole possesion of 2nd with a 16 foot eagle putt but unfortunately blew it by the hole by 3 feet and could not convert on his birdie putt coming back and ended up with a dissapointing par. He missed 4 reasonable birdie looks on the back side that could have easily put him in the final group going into Sunday.
Brooks Koepka was lights out today and up until the 14th hole had gone 44 consecutive holes without making a bogey, with his last bogey coming on his 6th hole of the first round, he followed up that bogey on 14 with another on 15. He was outdriving his playing partners by 30 yards and had several wedges into greens that others were playing 8 irons too and he took full advantage of having wedges in his hand and gave himself good birdie looks hole after hole.
Sunday is going to be an exhilerating day for any golf fan as the course is shaping up to be a challenge out there for everyone and if you miss in the wrong areas it can be easy to post some high scores. Brooks has won 2 majors out of the last 6 and looks to win his 3rd in the last 7 which is such an impressive feat, lets see if he can hold on and do it.
