Three shot lead for Morikawa.  

I remember reading somewhere that his 6-iron has the dispersion that most players on tour have with their PW.  No wonder he's got so many strokes gained: approach. 

Great break and recovery shot for Louis.  GIR and a good look at birdie at #9.

Kid is a stud. Hope he runs away from the field.

I hope so too, and we don't mean Shooter McGavin style "running away"

WOW.  What a par save by Morikawa after a major unforced error.

Maybe Louis should have sent his caddie to tend the pin on the par-3 11th? ;-)

Feherty says "that could have gone in for the same price."  Same tone as he does in the video game too.  I hope it was him live and not an audio clip from the game played by the TV 🙂 

(was with respect to Spieth's great chip at the 12th)

Even though JS is only 3 back I just can't see him winning this tournament. He just can't get past his over analyzing and second-guessing attitude. 

So far he has proven me wrong. He is hanging in there quite well, but we will see.

Rahm's ball had a mind of its own?

Twice on that hole Collin either played up the drama for TV or got away with something (or both I suppose).  

This Mastercard commercial with Justin Rose makes no sense.  Who puts a maraschino cherry on an ice cream cone?  Especially with a stem on it, that just seems like asking for trouble.

Wow, that shot by Rahm.  I'm not sure if it's "unlikely to win so why not try?" or if he just found something so late. 

And that shot by Louis.

And Morikawa was so close.

Morikawa makes it anyway :-)  Still no fives for the day.

WHOOO!  What a great par save by Morikawa on #15.  Great ups-and-downs the past few holes (and really all day, plus most of yesterday).

Is that a Goldendoodle headcover on Morikawa's driver?  IIRC that's the kind of dog he and Kat have.  

Why is Jordan waiting for the 18th tee to clear?  Is it that close to the 17th green?

Collin Morikawa reminds us that par-3s are hard while also reminding us that he's very good at golf. :-) 

His tee shot at #17 couldn't decide if it wanted to be in the fairway or first cut, it changed its mind a few times.

I wasn't as aware of who he was, except as part of that great "class of 2019" group, when he won the PGA.  I am trying to remember the last time I was this excited about a young player.  Sadly, Jordan's top years weren't a great time in my life for recreation and I didn't follow as much golf then as I should have.  I don't recall being excited about Rory McIlroy.  I think the last young player I was really excited about had given up professional golf before Morikawa.

That effort to manufacture excitement for his putt on 16 was laughable.  Dude, just made a long put on 14 and had a great par saving on 15 and he's going to have thoughts about "choking" on a 4 footer?  :roll:

I wonder how many people were confused by the announcers saying that Morikawa had just put a 9-iron in his bag last week. :-)  

(for those who don't know, he swapped out blades 7-8-9 for cavity backs last week;  he was already playing 5-6 iron as cavity backs)

Trivia:  every player who set the low-72 hole record at a major won that major.

    • Pretty much something like that has to happen to make baseball worth watching. Shame though, game over by 2nd inning so 7 innings of boredom to follow. 😳
    • I don’t know if there is much interest for baseball here on The Sand Trap, but I thought I start a thread. I’ve never seen this happen before even in a regular season game. The Red Sox hit a grand slam two innings in a row against Houston. Their starter, Garcia, loaded the bases with a double and two walks. Then J D Martinez striped a hit over the right field fence. At the top of the second, Garcia walked the first batter and apparently got hurt. Houston brought in Odorizzi, who then took 20 minutes to get warm, which is allowed by rule. He then loaded the bases and Devers hooked a slider just inside the right field foul pole for grand slam number two. Bizarre start to a Championship Series game.
    • You realize this is in the wrong thread!  😅.    The I hate winter is hidden for a few more weeks!   Very jealous
    • Well, failed hero don’t. Successful do.
