Golf Australia Express : GA Express 297
By 10 holes he led by one. It was a bigger story than collusion. And as he edged one clear there was a little curl of the mouth, barely noticeable. But it was there. And it was Tiger telling Tiger: I am on fi-yah. Spieth dropped one immediately. As did Schauffele, horribly plugged near the face of the bunker on five. He did unbelievably to extract it. Then blocked a drive. As did Spieth. Could they feel the dripping rank heat from the breath of the Big Cat? Or were they just leaking oil because golf is hard and Carnoustie is very hard? You sensed the former. That they knew. Even in Scotland there’s a Tiger roar and a normal one. The wind got up. Tiger kept hitting stingers. Owning it. Revelling in it. Eight and nine he made strong sand saves. And he went into the final nine holes leading a major championship. Tiger Woods! Coming down the stretch, leading a major. And they fell away around him. Spieth whacked a 3-wood into a little bush so thick they could barely find it. Took a drop. Had a 145-yard 8-iron right into the wind. Punched it hard, strong. Three-putted for double. It was only baby Xander between the Big Cat and the claret jug carrion. And Molinari kept making pars. Rory McIlroy kept hitting drivers. Long, brutal big bits of kit that he wound up and coiled and released, and blasted downtown. Balance and power, and tempo – McIlroy had plenty going on. But Woods was the story of the middle holes. And he was cruising to – “Oh my God!” he exclaimed after pulling his approach from the wheat into a thick mass of people. Then: “God-dammit!” as he chunked another out of the wheat. And he left too much out there. But gee he looked good. He looked great.
