Per the usual, expect the timestamps all over the place as I am watching the DVR of the final round. I will, most likely, only blog about Tiger as I know Jordan Spieth ran away with it.
8:18 – I am going to head over to the Chargers vs Patriots December 2014 Live Blog now. I will finish this one at another time.
8:11 – Tiger is just left of the hole in two on a par 5. He hit the fairway again. Not a bad place to be if he were chipping normally. This week, he could take a double bogey from there. He hits a good chip and will tap in for his first birdie of the day. For those wondering, he has a new red Nike polo that has quite a bit of black on the front. There is also a vertical black stripe down the back. Not a bad looking polo. I am sure it will be like $85 or $100 at Golf Galaxy, Golfsmith or Dick’s Sporting Goods this winter.
8:09 – Does anyone else think Jordan Spieth looks like a young Steve Stricker?
8:05 – Tiger has a 30 footer for birdie after hitting the fairway and getting to the green in regulation. He will walk away with a par on the 6th hole. He has a par 5 coming up.
7:57 – Tiger hits a cut with a 5 wood off the tee at 6. His tee box play has been quite impressive the entire tournament.
7:51 – The par 3 5th here for Tiger. He is playing it 191 yards with a dead straight ball. This will be a good chance for a birdie. Wow, Tiger had an uphill putt that was left to right and he missed it to take a par.
7:48 – Tiger curls it in and gets a double sandy. Nice sand save for Tiger on the 4th hole.
7:47 – Rickie Fowler is staying with Bubba Watson as his Isleworth home this week. He and Bubba are playing together in the final round. These two are great friends.
7:46 – Tiger actually hits his drive in the bucker. He has 173 yards in and hits it into another bunker. He could get a double sandy if he can get up and down from the greenside bunker.
7:43 – Frank Nobilo and Terry Gannon are wearing the red golf shirts for the final round. I like it.
7:41 – Tiger hits a driver off 4 tee here. Swing looks great. Easily carried the bunkers but is in the rough. He swing isn’t going all the way to parallel so we will watch that in the 4th round of this tournament.
7:40 – Ok, we know Tiger is not going to win this one but it should be fun to watch his swing progress. Tiger is with Steve Stricker so he is already smiling. Hopefully he can stay happy this round.
