Hero World Challenge: Round 4



I'm intrigued as to why the Bahamas was chosen to host this tournament. I'll do a little digging. Oh. Here's something from Wikipedia. "The Bahamas has no income tax, corporate tax, capital gains tax, or wealth tax". Indeed.


Evening all! Welcome to BTM coverage of the Hero World Challenge from the Bahamas. Another tough assignment for these golfers! Of course, the big story this week is the comeback of a certain Tiger Woods. And so far, it hasn't been too bad, considering... @Ugster1 to kick things off.

We only started with 18 golfers, and then with the withdrawal of Justin Rose we're down to 17. Still World Ranking points available (correctly or not - discuss), and of course bags of cash.

The leaders yet to go out - will be on the way soon. As for Tiger - it's been a bit of an up and down week, but he sits nicely in midfield at -8 - 11 shots off the leader, but a mere four off second place.

Hideki Matsuyama is the leader at -19, and given he has a seven shot lead over Dustin Johnson, Stenson and Kucher, this could be a bit of a procession...

Nice approach from Tiger at four - he's done rather well with the irons this week. Par for Kuchar at the second.

Long birdie putt for Tiger at four...and it just slides past. That'll be a par. Playing with Oosthuizen today. Last group teeing off at the first - Matsuyama and Stenson. Both safely away, Henrik using his 3-wood, of course.

Plenty of wind around today - players having to take that into consideration when playing over the water at five. Woods finds front sand, which probably isn't a terrible spot. Spieth birdies three.

Decent escape from Woods - par chance to come. Johnson drains a birdie putt at the second, so he slashes the deficit to Matsuyama to, um, six shots...

Leaderboard, 5:25pm UK time: -19: Matsuyama -13: D Johnson -12: Stenson, Kuchar, Snedeker -10: Spieth, Fowler -9: Oosthuizen -8: Woods

Add a shot to Tiger's score - another putt slides past. Nice drive up six though.
