Just the two of them now.

The gap between the final two and everyone else is up to eight shots. Beef can't catch up to that.

Good match play scenario on the seventh tee. Phil takes driver off the tee, and loses it into the rough; Henrik responds with an iron down the middle.

Wait, so pros don't always make birdie when hitting a wedge for GIR?  Iron off the tee, wedge in didn't produce a better score?  /s

Stenson birdies the postage stamp.  Will Phil?

Yikes, miss by Phil... Stenson by one, plenty to play.

Callaway will be the big winner this week, Phil and Henrik have separated themselves from the field and turned The Open into a match play event.

Damn this is quite the duel. If this back 9 continues as the front, could go down as an all time great finish.

Phil's approach... near-GIR, but he can use his putter.  Or whatever club he deems worthy of the shot I guess. 

Phil still hasn't gotten the memo about leaving the pin in. 

Phil makes par, Stenson stands mid-point of his putt... and then walks to the other side of the hole to read with his eyes.

Yeah, that was strange. The announcers talked about it being related to the thicker flagsticks, but he seems to do that a lot.

And just like that, J.B. Holmes pulls to within single digits of the lead. 

Yikes.  Tied for the lead, Phil misses the fairway with an iron.  

Bones repeatedly saying "no cameras, please."  Not the same approach Stevie took that one time.  I hope it works.
