    Rose drills his birdie putt previous the can, knocking in the par putt to have faith his two-shot lead.

    Spieth has a bogey putt which is longer than he would like… but it indubitably’s no longer an downside. One other one dropped even when for the three-time essential winner, who factual can no longer clink into instruments on the help nine.

  6. Birdies for Koepka & Molinari

    Koepka -4, Molinari -5, Hovland -1 (16*)

    Titillating stuff from Francesco Molinari. The softest of hands on the par three, after staring at his tee shot nearly dunk straight into the cup earlier than bouncing up into the longer stuff. No bother for the Italian, he clips in.

    Woods, dressed in janitor all-blue, goes steady from 30 feet. A immediate tap in for one more par. That is 11 from 12 for the broken-down world number 1.

    Oh. My. Observe. Jordan Spieth catches his chip relief too heavy and it flies previous the inexperienced into the rough on the opposite side.

  9. Put up replace

    Spieth -3, Rose -7, Woods -2 (13*)

    “Oh dang it!Oh my goodness!

    Jordan Spieth will not be any longer satisfied with his tee shot on the par-three fifth. Thru the help and in a grassy financial institution by the seems of it.

    Tiger Woods fares better, discovering the inexperienced, but Justin Rose fares even better peaceful.

    A mid-iron from the Englishman hits the contours completely, arcing round left on a line that is more likely to be drawn by a compass. About 14 feet from a two…

    Koepka -3, Molinari -4, Hovland -1 (15*)

    Gentle a birdie likelihood for Francesco Molinari after cupping his technique thru the inexperienced, but he can no longer sink that one. Par it is.

  11. Birdie for Scott

    A Scott -3 (15)

    After a bogey at the 13th, Adam Scott is factual creeping relief up the leaderboard after making birdies at the 14th and 15th.

    Koepka -2, Molinari -4, Hovland -1 (14*)

    Thirty-footer to steal an eagle for Brooks, but it indubitably places the brakes on a putter’s length from the pin. Must be a easy birdie for the champ, champ – he’s completely had a style of at the present time.

  13. Bogey for Rose

    Spieth -3, Rose -7, Woods -2 (12*)

    Spieth to head first on the fourth… a gently nudge down the slope sees ball clink plastic. And that’s a birdie for the American.

    Can Woods put together suit? No. His ball slithers appropriate, misses the outlet and ends in a sighing Tiger muttering one thing maybe/doubtlessly unrepeatable.

    Excellent but no longer least it is our leader Rose… this for par remember. However he can no longer hole and is reined relief in by the pack.

  14. Put up replace

    Koepka -2, Molinari -4, Hovland -1 (14*)

    Frankie Molinari used to be ever so finish to touchdown his tee shot in the Pacific, it factual about clings on earlier than the cliffs. The Italian’s technique is a tiny bit hot too, running up on to the rough in the help of the inexperienced.

    Rose’s ball ends in the ice plant, that ability he has to peg up in the penalty fall zone.

    What can he cook dinner up from right here? A beauty! The Englishman’s technique, his third shot, finally ends up about seven feet from the flag.

    Woods and Spieth are also inside of sight, the three balls sat on the inexperienced like a trio of gulls perched on the rocky cliff inside of sight.

    I Poulter +5 (14*)

    Well it seems as if Ian Poulter’s hopes of taking half in the third round had been laid to rest as he drifts left off the tee on the fifth and watches his ball plop into the sand.

  20. Quadruple Bogey

    I Poulter +6 (12*)

    Ian Poulter’s had an absolute stinker at the third hole, carding a quadruple bogey eight.

    He had 139 yards to the pin with his 2nd shot, which is radiant a lot the effect he started throwing strokes away like confetti in the wind, after discovering the crawl of a greenside bunker.

    Two duffed chips, including one which noticed his ball transfer about 2cm, and several putts later, his weekend plans are if fact be told radiant a lot sorted.

    Because it stands the minimize is around the one over par trace.
