Round 3 of the open or any TE as we call them is usually the easiest of the 4 rounds but this one didn’t turn out that way. Now the wind was set up low but at Saint Andrew that’s still 15 MPH winds and to my surprise the green speed was set at Very Fast again. We all know how I feel about that speed on the greens, it’s very inconsistent. Everyone had to play them that way so off I went.
I started off great by hitting a 19 ft bird on the first and a 10 ft one on the 4th hole, then I Eagled the par 5 fifth. But could not make another putt on the front side. The back started out slow but birded the 12th and then proceeded to make a bogey on 14. The rest of the holes I only pared so I finished with a dismal 68 in round 3 and about 14 shots behind the new leader.
That’s right we have a new leader now in the Open ! Griff the leader in the first 2 rounds shot 65 in the third round while Bonny came in with a 61 to take a 2 shot lead going into round 4. Both of these guys plat WGT together almost every day and this should be a very good match to watch in the 4th round. I also play in their group often and it is a very competitive one. Everyone does their best to come out on top in every game.
Good Luck to you both Bobby and Griff ! May you both play your best and putt well and I know whoever wins will have worked his butt off to do so. That’s all I got for Round 3 everyone, Hit them straight out their !
