Saturdays conditions, for California standards, were not great. 50 degree temperatures with rain and 15+ MPH winds would’ve made me walk off the golf course if I could’ve. But, that didn’t stop the worlds best from shooting some good scores.
Paul Casey shot a 5-under 67 to find himself in the final group on Sunday. He will be paired with Phil Mickelson who shot a 2-under 70.
Ho Sung Choi, who made his PGA Tour debut this week, failed to make the cut after rounds of 72, 75, and 77.
Jordan Spieth, who was only two back going into today, failed to make any kind of move. He shot a 2-over par 74 and pretty much put himself out of the tournament.
After shooting 2-under on the front, Spieth’s drive on the 14th hole clipped a tree, leaving him 277 yards to the green. He would go on to double 14 and make one more on 18 after his tee shot found the pacific ocean.
“I’m very frustrated.” Spieth said. “If I just go par, par, I’m essentially still in this tournament with what’s forecasted tomorrow. I kind of threw myself out of the tournament. It will affect me for a while. By the time I tee it up tomorrow, it will be a new goal set for the day.”
The tour announced via Twitter today that Tony Romo would be withdrawing from the tournament to attend the funeral of former Cowboy assistant coach Wade Wilson. Wilson passed away last Friday at the age of 60.
Tomorrow should be a fun day of Golf.
