Rory now bunkered in a bad spot on 17. Downslope, water long.
Tiger has to be absolutely kicking himself right now. Clubhouse leader at -8, -8 or -9 could win it or playoff.
I know you won't give him the benefit of the doubt. It would be hard to say. The poor play could certainly be from the back and bending over to putt with a bad back can be vicious.
I doubt it. If Tiger could have played better I am sure he would have instead of the abysmal performance he had did have.
At this point, it looks like 73 would have been enough, and a 74 will still get him into a playoff! (Unless Henley birdies 18, of course)
