Golf Australia Express : GA Express 297
again. It was true, but he finished T12. Spieth made birdie. Schauffele made birdie. Five men shared the lead in the 147th Open Championship. Then it was six. McIlroy bombed an eagle-three and punched seven shades from the air. Schauffele made a sandy, remained one of them. So did Molinari, who was 32 holes without a bogey. The Terminator gave more away. Kisner dropped one. Rose kept on coming. Chappell made an eight-footer for par. It was anybody’s. Even Eddie Pepperell, in the clubhouse at five-under, could sit in there and think, I’m not without a chance. Spieth made a clutch par putt. Woods made a birdie, got within one. Scotsmen roared. Scribes kept options open. Molinari broke his 13-hole run of pars with birdie, led by one. Rose stiffed one on 18. Made birdie. He’d needed birdie on Friday to make the cut. His weekend went 64-69. Six-under all up. He’ll win more majors. Rory hit driver on 18, trailing by one, you couldn’t have rung dial-a-pizza and had the driver drive your ball to a better spot in the middle of the fairway, downtown. A resulting par was not enough. Kisner shaved one. Chappell ground one out. Woods went close on 16. Molinari made another nerveless clutch putt. Spieth found a fairway bunker. Tiger hit a stinger. Needed birdie-birdie finish. You fancied Francesco. Or did you? Chappell hit a pearler to middle of 16, but missed. Schauffele thinned one. Spieth hit a superb approach, though his third. Woods hit another stinger that was more a floater. And so ended the biggest turn-up since Jack in ’86. Spieth went with him. Chappell chopped one into the bush. Schauffele needed to hole out for eagle to catch Italy’s finest. But could not. And that was all she wrote.
