It’s the last major round of 2018, and a host of stars and upstarts are bidding to either make history or land their debut major.
Leading the field on -12 is double U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka. Though he stalled on the back nine yesterday, the American is bidding for his third major in just 15 months. He tees off at 7:55 p.m Irish/UK time, alongside former Masters winner Adam Scott, whose return to form has been long-awaited, but has raised concerns over his perceived perversion of the ‘anchor’ putting ban.
Behind them are the prodigious pairing of Jon Rahm and Rickie Fowler at 7:45 p.m. Both have impressed a great deal worldwide, but are yet to claim a major championship.
In the third last group on a major Sunday is none other than Tiger Woods, who again is contending in the big events after severe injuries.
The 14-time major winner sets off at 7:35 with Gary Woodland, who led for most of the tournament before being swept aside by Koepka yesterday.
Stewart Cink and Jason Day tee off at 7:25, but Irish interest centres on the pairing before that – Offaly’s Shane Lowry goes out at 7:15 with defending champion Justin Thomas.
The stakes don’t get any bigger for the Irishman, but having claimed the 2015 WGC Bridgestone Invitational, this setting won’t faze him.
