Thread: Richie Fowler

  1. #1

    Richie Fowler

    Anyone watching the golf now.

    He's got a five stroke lead. He misses the green with his second shot and has what looks a simple chip onto the green. But over hits it and the ball runs over the green past the bunker into the water. He takes a penalty drop and has to place the ball as it's impossible to get the ball to stop running back into the water. As he goes up onto the green the ball moves again and it runs back into the water. So a double penalty drop.

    Very unlucky and costly for Fowler.

    He holes a great putt for a quadruple bogey, his lead down to one.

    Seemingly they've put a 7 on his card.

    Not exactly sure how that works out?

    Was it his second or 3rd shot that initially went into the penalty area?

    3rd shot went through the green and into the water.

    He dropped it - 4.

    As it rolled back without him touching it, that doesn't count as a "stroke" but there is the penalty to get it back out the water - 5.

    Onto the green - 6.

    Holed putt - 7.

    I think that's it?

    I think so. I just tuned in when it was all happening. He'll do well to win it now.

    This is cracking viewing tonight.

    Grace has now put it in the drink at 17.

    Fowler is certainly jittery, has played another ropey iron in to the 16th, had a horrible stance for his 2nd but appears to have got away with it.

    My mate lives in Phoenix and has 2 jobs - coaching soccer and arranging golf holidays for folk.

    This weekend is the highlight of his year.

    I need to go visit him one of these years.

    Now it's Justin Thomas who's throwing away a lead. From being in total control and a four shot lead after three rounds, he's now level with Holmes after five holes.I

    Both Thomas and Speith have had shanks today.

    Some of the best players in the world have been playing like me and my mates today.

    Crazy scores on the cards out there.

    The conditions must be very tricky.
