Final Round Preview

Chipping in for birdie on the 17th hole at Torrey Pines on Saturday, many wondered what Tiger Woods could do for an encore at 18? How does an eagle sound?

 

Under optimum conditions in a major championship, something Tiger has faced in each of the previous 13 times he led after the third round, Woods finishes off any challenge easily. In other words, England’s Lee Westwood should expect to shoot an 80 this afternoon in San Diego.

 

Still, it’s different this year. Westwood looks like the most consistent golfer through three rounds, not Woods. Tiger got lucky on 13, 17 and 18 on Saturday, and while he does lead the golf tournament, it’s not over.

 

Can Woods actually walk 18 in searing pain just two months after knee surgery? Better yet, can he put together a solid round to break par?

 

Four hours before the best player in the world and the other guy tee off in the final round of the championship, the early groups have put up nothing but red numbers this morning in California.

 

A 64 is out there for Ogilvy, Els, Garcia or others. It can happen today.

 

It’s the final round of the United States Open.
