Phil was really unlucky to bogey that hole. He hit two excellent shots only to have the second run through into an absolutely impossible lie. He played the last 12 holes about as well as you could expect on that course.
He's hit the ball so well this week that he'd have the tournament by the balls if just a few more putts would have dropped. He putted a lot better on the second nine, but he wasn't getting a ton of those to drop. The putts on 15, 16, and 18 were all pure but either burned the edge or lacked a rotation of speed.
I was expecting Donald to shit himself like that all day. It's unsurprising to see he's still the guy who would rather finish fifth than win.
Mahan has an excellent chance tomorrow. He is probably the best driver of the golf ball alive, but I wouldn't trust him over a six footer.
I think the +3s and better have a theoretical shot, but the course is so hard and the leaderboard so good that I'd almost guarantee +1 or better wins.
I just hope that after so many disappointments that Phil finally earns his redemption.
A great shot is when you pull it off. A smart shot is when you don't have the guts to try.
