Phoenix Open: Final Round



Fowler from sand - nice little shot. Easy peasy par. Woodland after his nice second rolls in the putt and also -4 for the front 9 and 1 off the lead. Reavie plugged like a fried egg - smashes it out to the rough at the back of the green and a change is a coming at the top of the board.

What do I know ? Reavie chips in for a most unlikely par on 6 !! That's going to feel good. Rahm with birdie putt - knocks it in !! Moves to -13. Rickie also tidies up so an unlikely outcome of 2 pars and a birdie after 3 bang average second shots.

We're back ... even Mark Roe is going with the gladiator metaphor as we wait for some poor sod to play 16. Oh, here's Phil on 7 - long birdie putt and just misses. Starting his back 9 is Laird and that second shot just fails to crawl on to the front of the green. Should be an easy up and down. Inexplicably Kuchar rolls one in and moves to -13.

Shuffle having a nightmare as he misses a 4 footer to bogey 7. He's a broken man. Phil tidies up for par and still has a chance to win this if he can get something going on the back 9. Woodland on 9 plays a cracker to about 6ft .. don't roll him out.

Rahm on the par 3 7th - hole playing a bit over par and he's got a birdie putt from the back edge. Reavie to the centre of the green, but that's probably OK. Take your 3 and move on. Rickie hands come off and he's lost that left - long bunker shot left. Not easy at all.

Sorry about that slight delay - problem with the technology and a comfort break coinciding. Some no hoper at 16 and he's played a decent shot. Well done whoever you are.

Good up and down for par at 7 for Rickie. Just hanging in there. Reavie also tidies up for par. Woodland did birdie 9 and he's out in -5 and has share of the lead. Lots of players still in with a shout.

Leaderboard at 19:57 GMT as we head for another break.

After last week's disappointment with the fruit, you'll no doubt be pleased to hear that I've rustled up a tasty sandwich from the lunch leftovers and some delicious home made fruit crumble to finish. My tip, if you're interested, is to swap some of the flour for coconut and porridge oats for the topping.

Rahm teeing off on 8 and misses the fairway way way right. 475 yards is a drive and wedge. If that's not wrong, I don't know what is. Reavie on the tee and gets a break - ball sitting in the light rough. Rickie needs something to happen soon - found the fairway here so that should help.
