MY threeball picks yesterday didn’t do well at all but maybe I can do better today with the twoballs.
Leader by one Kevin Kisner was solid yesterday, as was Chris Stroud, but Hideki Matsuyama was all over the place and still managed to stay in there. I fancy Kisner to keep them all at bay today and land his first Major.
Graham Delaet had a great run on the back nine yesterday with birdie, eagle, eagle, birdie and it wouldn’t surprise me if he held off Patrick Reed’s return to form.
Billy Horschell (6-5) has improved every round and hit a 69 yesterday and although I’m a big fan of Byeong-Hun An I think Horschell is on a roll and can see him pipping An.
Francesco Molinari had a horrendous start yesterday with double bogey, bogey, bogey in his first three holes but managed to steady the ship a bit. Chez Reavie on the other hand has been really steady in his first three rounds (72-70-70) and can see off Molinari.
I thought Rickie Fowler (10-11) was going to start to challenge yesterday but a bogey, double bogey, bogey finish put paid to his winning here. However, he was been fairly consistent this week and earlier in the round yesterday he just couldn’t buy a putt. He takes on Paul Casey who himself had a horrendous finish (bogey-bogey-double) in the final three holes. I think Rickie can hold on here.
