He was at 5-under 208 along with Justin Thomas, the son of a PGA professional, who played bogey-free over his last 12 holes and posted a 69. "I think that's why I feel like I'm ready to win a major championship now versus past year, when I probably didn't have that."That's what Tiger [Woods] did so well".

He went from solo 6th to outside the top 15 with compounding mistakes. 13 though 16, going birdie, eagle, eagle, birdie.
