Golf

ByTheMinGolf

Good evening from Hawaii ladies & gentlemen, golf fans everywhere. Bringing you the final round of the TOC from the Plantation course, Kapalua. I'm @doreguymike and no, im not there, yes I would dearly love to be there. The leaders have just teed off and the TV feed will be on any moment now. Stay tuned !!!

8 minutes away from live coverage ! One of my favourite viewing evenings of the year, mostly because I'm marooned in the frozen tundra of the Canadian North. The views from the plantation course, which sits on the NW corner of Maui, are truly spectacular. Looking across at the island of Lanai.

Getting a look at the leaders, Brian Harman at the 1st, makes a 14 footer for par. Dustin Johnson also from the smagma, 124 yards and he gets it to the front edge. A 2 putt par, and WE ARE OFF and RUNNING with our 1st golf coverage of 2018 on BTMins. Aloha !!!!

John Rahm Rodriguez, on 3, dribbles his birdie putt from 12 feet behind the hole annnndddd, denied. Left it on the lip. Agony I say. Rickie Fowlers turn now. Nails it. 4 shots back now. Spyth now, yes I call him Spyth for birdie on 6. Nope.

Leaders teeing off on 3 now. Up the hill. Nice drives. Matsuyama misses his birdie putt on 8, while Leishman makes his. He's at -10 now. Making a charge after blowing up the other day w a 76. Leaderboard any minute now !

Looking at Harman shooting at the 3rd green.

Pat Perez moves to 12 under w a 2 putt birdie on the par 5 5th. Rahm lags another birdie effort to the lip on 4. No joy. And now the rain is coming down. A sunny shower !! Harman w a birdie putt on 3. The putter got caught in his underwear, hits it halfway, he's got 15 feet left. Ouch.

DJ holes his birdie putt on 3. In the rain. And his lead is now 4. Wow. Catch me if you can he says. This is a course that suits him and he should always play well here. Today will be his day I feel.

This is so much better.

Dustin on the 371 yd par 4, fans it out right. Brian H from the other side of the fairway hits his short but it doesn't hold on. Leishman is at it again, birdies 9, and now is at -11 with 4 birdies today. Perez nattering away after missing a putt haha.
