It’s absolutely gorgeous out here today. Favored Jordan Spieth and Chelso Barrett are just finishing the first nine holes. Spieth, who lost the first two holes, got back to even on six and took the lead on eight. He’s 1 up after nine.
The USGA is blogging hole-by-hole. If you’re not coming out, that’s probably the best way to follow the match. I’ll be heading out to the course shortly.
I’ll also be tweeting some updates and thoughts from the course.
It’s been an amazing week of golf thus far. About the only thing that could top what’s preceeded it is for this match to be decided on the 36th hole. No. 18, once again, would come into play. Do you drive it or hit an iron?
I know what I’d do. Of course, anybody who’s ever golfed with me knows how much I like my 3 iron.
