It's the unorthodox approach that makes him so appealing. The commentary surrounding the 7 iron shot through the trees said it all, really. Feherty: "He's looking to lay up short." Faldo: "Um...no," (or words to that effect, followed by a fairly stunned silence). And the outcome of that wonderful shot (ending high above the hole), being substantially worse than the likely outcome of the straightforward lay up (a third shot of a straightforward pitch onto the the green), was the punch-line, really. He plays like a tenacious matchplay golfer, even when he's three up with a handful of holes left in a strokeplay tournament, that just happens to be a major championship, to boot.
