“How did that go right…. my god,” laments Bryson DeChambeau as his birdie try at 14 doesn’t grab enough of the hole. Perhaps he can get it out of his system by driving the 422-yard par-4 15th.
Superb approach by Thomas Pieters to the last and the top scorer at the 2016 Ryder Cup rolls in his 12-foot putt to join Reed in the clubhouse on -4. That’s tied second and just one off the pace. As well as his exploits at Hazeltine, Pieters has had a couple of good knocks in the majors with tied fourth at the 2017 Masters and T6 at the 2018 PGA. He leads the European bid here, a shot ahead of Rory.
