Olympic Golf - Men's Final Round



Final leaderboard: GOLD - Justin Rose, -16 SILVER - Henrik Stenson, -14 BRONZE - Matt Kuchar, -13


Aphibarnrat putting a run together and he moves to -7. Rose lining up his Monster Putt. Can't see him holing it, but he has got form when needed ! Fantastic putt - dead on line and about 9 inches short. Rafa moves to -8 after a good birdie on 9. Fraser drains a 30 footer and he's back to -9 and bronze on his own now. OOH ! Stenson walks after his putt, but it lips out.

As you were.

Fraser knocks one down the middle of 7 , first away having birdied 6 against the odds. Rose pulls it way left, but there's plenty of room and the crowd haven't even realised his ball is 20 yds behind them. Stenson has DRIVER !! WTF. Creams it down the middle.


Pros must love this course. Hit it off the tee hard as you can in any direction. Then ask caddy "is that ok ?" It's always ok.

Alan Wilson

would suit me down to a tee. Excuse the pun.

Great view of Rafa's second on 10 - just drifts off the edge. Birdie chance, or eagle if he chips in. Kuchar with a loverly wedge into 9. Another birdie chance. Further back, team USA with P. Reed has 3 birdies in a row and is making late charge. Wont be enough though.

Fraser with 243 to go - its a par 4 FFS !! Short and right in the bunker. Stenson next. 205 and he's got an iron. Backs off. What a shot. Pin high and about 8 feet left. Guy sure gives the golf ball a hell of a beating. Rose next ... 193 from the left hand side , actually the wrong fairway probably. Chat about the yardage. Club change.

3 iron, good lie ball below. Great shot, but about a club too much... must be about 40 yds past and rolling away. Advantage Stenson. Kuchar holes out and is also -9 now.

Well, decent crowds at last and this could shape up to be a lot more interesting over the next 2 hours than the previous 4 days put together.

Fraser out the bunker - OK, but bit of work to do for par. Rose with a horror, 25 yards off a tight lie and a wee ride to get over. Flicks it up and that's not bad, but it won't stop and he's 10 ft left for par.

Kuchar on 10, making a charge of sorts ... good drive up the middle. Very weird seeing Sergio playing without a cap ! -7 through 13, but found sand off the tee on 14. Rose for par ... good stroke, but drifts past right. Could be a 2 shot swing here ! OOOH - great putt, but also drifts just past. Both about the same to tidy up. Kuchar with a great shot at 10 - 10ft left for eagle.

Fraser misses his par putt and Rose tidies up for bogey. All change again !
