    He did. In the fairway on 15, don’t know if he can get home in 2.

    Edit: he hit a 3-wood off the tee, so presumably it is a 3 shot hole for him. 18 is listed at 637 yards, so that is also a 3 shot hole.

    Birdie 15 and 18 and see what happens. -17 may not win it, but if he shoots -6 on Sunday that will be a huge boost in confidence and a big payday early in the season.

    No birdie on 15 but, behind him, Dou just put his layup into the hazard. Kohles is still at -16 though.

    Kohles posts -16, that looks like the playoff number. Rob missed a birdie opportunity on 16, is in the fairway on 17.

    Need the play by play to continue on this last hole. Saw Dou is also at -16. One more birdie Rob!

    Wow, I didn't even realize they started on Sunday until his brother texted me about an hour ago to turn it on (unfortunately, I'm at the office, so can't watch, but I've got about 10 folks blowing up my phone).

    FYI, I believe the qualifications have changed this year, and it's not based on Top 25 on the money list anymore. I think they've gone to a points system, like the FedEx Cup, so a win here gets him 500 points, 2nd place gets 300, etc. I could be wrong, but I thought that was the deal this year.

    Ugh - pulled drive left on 18. But ball came out of the schmutz, so maybe has a chance to advance far enough to get on in 3.

    This thread should be renamed, "Just when you thought you were out, Rob pulls you back in."

    Dou just stuffed one on 17 to 6-7 feet. Might need the birdie on 18 to get the playoff.

    Rob is back in play. Hard to tell how much he’ll have left for his 3rd, but he doesn’t seem to be too far away from where I’veseen other players hit. I’ll guess 130-150ish?

    Great, the newest name to add to my list of golfers to hate.

    Never mind, Rob must have hit it OOB. That “layup” was his 3rd shot. He just hit his 4th to 30-40 feet.

    Dou made a birdie at 17. Bleh.

    Par putt burns the edge. Bogey it is. That’ll leave him T4 or 5 depending on what happens around him.

    2 penalty strokes on the back 9 come back to haunt. Bummer, but an excellent start to the year nonetheless.

    I don't think he had penalty on last hole. He hit a low punch up against one of those bushes on 2nd shot, and then had trees etc in his way, and had to lay up with his 3rd shot. Same result (on in 4, bogey), but no penalty stroke.

    Looks like he'll finish tied for 4th. A little disappointing in how he ended the round, but still a great start to the season for him.

    Ah OK, I was watching without the volume. I stepped away for a second and came back when he was hitting his 3rd thinking that was where his tee ball ended up.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. If golf courses were like 15 holes long, Rob would be ranked in the top 25 in the world. Such a freaking hard game.

    $23,625 pay day. At least according to the app, the Top 25 is based on the money list again.

    He ended up finishing -1 total after 2 days, which actually has him tied for 29th so he made the cut and will be playing the "weekend." The leader is at -10, but Rob is only 3-4 shots from the top 10, so as usual, anything can happen over the next two days.

    Shot a 76 today to finish at +8 and T48.

    I didn’t have a chance to watch, but it must be really windy there. A lot of ugly numbers posted.

    Yep, the wind went crazy yesterday and today, and Rob can't really compete in those conditions. There were a ton of 75+ scores throughout the field. When he has to play into a significant wind, his length (or lack thereof) is a real negative, and if he gets out of position, forget about it.

    As always though, just needs to keep making cuts and getting points. And then hope for a good weekend here and there.

    Rob shot a +5, 76 yesterday to put him in a tough spot. -2 through 5 today as he attempts to go low to make the weekend. Needs to get to -1 or -2 in all likelihood. Doable, but no room for error.

    Rob missed the cut at +1. No idea what the deal was at that course, but he was one of a DOZEN players in the field that had at least a 10-Shot difference between their Thursday and Friday scores.

    Rob shot a +3 73 yesterday, and then came back with an even par 70 today, to finish at +3, moving up 34 spots into a tie for 53. Currently, he's sitting right on the cut line, which looks like it should hold there, so he should make it to the weekend. Seems to be a pretty tough course.

    +1 73 today. He started the day +4 on his first 3 holes, so a nice bounce back. Will need a good round tomorrow to make the cut.

    In other news, Mike Weir is still grinding away and is currently in 2nd place at -6. Also, the guy in last place made a 17 on a par 4.

    Rob shot a 5-under 67 today in the first round of the Savannah Golf Championship in Georgia, which is good for a T6 start. He’s MC’d in 3 of his last 4 and fallen to 45 on the points list. Hopefully the round today gets him going and he can carry it through the remainder of the tournament and beyond.

    Started on the back today and was +3 at the turn but blitzed the front coming in with 5 birdies to shoot a -2 70. Has him T4 and a shot back. Afternoon wave is just getting started so he’ll fall back some but still in good position.

    T12 finish. He had a wild round, made 6 birdies and 5 bogeys. Bogeyed 6 though 9 to fall down to T40-something and then made 4 birdies on the back to climb back up the leaderboard. Looks like he moved to 37 on the points list.
