Add Brooks Koepka to the list of players making a statement this morning. He’s three under through his first eight holes four shots back of the lead. Ah finally a birdie for Jordan! Brings him to -1 for the tournament. Pars for Rose and Rahm.
Brooks Koepka is on fire. Makes the turn in three under on the day and then birdies three straight to begin his second nine (the front) and is now seven under and in solo second. Woodland and Kisner both still tied at nine under through 11 holes.
This leaderboard is…TASTY! Tiger Fowler JT Rory all getting ready to go soon. HERE WE GO. Just wanted to add some fun flavor to the blog. Here’s Andre Iguodala staying hydrated. Some real quality golf coming from the Rahm Spieth Rose group. Combined eight under par today. Those will be the guys to watch early Saturday.
Tiger tees off first and overcooks it over the green on the left. Rory is safely on the green but it’s a long putt for birdie. JT finds the edge of the green right up against the first cut. Here we are at No. 6 a par 3 where there’s a holdup on the tee as they wait for the green to clear.
Rahm just misses his birdie try on 1. He’s run a lot of putts close today. Par for him Rose pars too. Spieth lips his birdie try. He stays at one under. Jordan Spieth sticks it on the 1st hole his 10th of the day and he’ll have a look at birdie to get to two under.
