Honda Classic: Final Round



Oh. You think it's time for some golf? Well. I think you might be right. And I think I'm the man to help. Hip Happy Hello folks, I'm @aidanleape, here to kick off our coverage of the final round of the 2018 Honda Classic from the PGA National Golf Club in beautiful Palm Beach, Florida. So, without any more stalling, lets get rocking and a rolling. CUE THE MUSIC.

Before we get started with our live text, I should just tell you who is making the moves, and where they are making them. The big mover so far is Emiliano Grillo, who is -5 through his opening 10 holes, which has taken him to -3. Tiger also making a move of sorts, -2 after his opening 5 to build on his level par opening three rounds.

But the one clad in red is still 5 shots off the lead, which is still held by Luke List. He's opened up with a tasty par to stick at -7 for the tournament. It's pars too for Justin Thomas and Webb Simpson to start their rounds, and they sit a shot back Here's how it looks at the top then: List: -7 (1) Simpson (1) , Thomas (1): -6 Lovemark (2), Fleetwood (2): -5 Kraft (3), Noren (2): -4

Kraft though with a chance to move up to -5 straight away as we get going. His birdie putt slides just by, and that keeps him at -4. You actually already knew that, because that was his putt from the 3rd hole. What can I say, my Leaderboard is just super duper speedy.

I was going to say I'm ready to settle into some golf, but we're settling into adverts. Rather worryingly, Electricity Northwest have been rather prominent tonight, with a worrying looking "Call 105 if you experience a powercut" message. I hope they're not preempting the demise of my evening.

Alex Noren at the third then. Decently lengthed birdie putt. Up she goes, jinks a little at the end, and then obliges by dropping into the cup. He moves to -5, and is just two back. Meanwhile, it's a par for Tiger at 7, and he stays 5 shot back, still tantalisingly in range to mean that every commentator across the world is discussing how he's going to make a tilt at the title.

Pars all around at the top again through 2. List stays at -7. -6 for Simpson and Thomas. Lovemark, Fleetwood and Noren at -5.

Tiger off the tee at 8 then. Just a 3 wood for him, and it's right up the middle. As it trundles down the fairway it somewhat interrupts the strut of an errant goose. Gave him a bit of a shock, but no harm caused. Fleetwood chipping from the greenside rough at 3. Really well played out of some horrible cabbage like thicket. He'll have a short birdie putt to move just one behind the leader.

Whilst we wait for that Fleetwood putt (on the other side of more adverts), I can tell you that Webb Simpson is also sticking around at -6. Par for him at 3. Right then. This birdie try for Fleetwood then. Up he strides in his grey attire. Down she goes, and up he goes. -6 for Tommy, one shot back.

Alex Noren approaching 4 then. Nails it on line, and the clubbing isn't too bad either. He's probably left, what, about 12 feet for birdie. And we can see it straight away here. Maybe a touch shorter than I thought actually. Pretty straight too, and really well struck. In she goes, and it's back to back birdies for he. -6 is the Swede, one stroke back.
