Certainly tough conditions and we didn’t expostulate a round quite good so we was personification from some tough locations today”, pronounced Spieth. “So we didn’t take my medicine, and strike it about 15 feet right with a bar that takes a spin off”, Spieth said.

There is a vast organisation tied for fourth that includes Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson and Justin Rose. He saved dual tough pars after blank a immature in a wrong spots on Nos.

Johnson never got a possibility to see how he would fare.

He attempted to play. But that’s as distant as Johnson got.

A grim-faced Johnson done his proceed to a initial tee though after a few swings incited and walked to a clubhouse.

Another inauspicious splashdown after spinning his proceed shot to a 15th behind into a splash led him to unravel.

The hero of his final 3 starts on a PGA Tour and a reigning U.S. Open champion and PGA Tour actor of a year harmed himself Wednesday descending on wooden stairs in his let home. Just as quickly, Henley recovered with birdies on a 12th, 13th and 14th holes. “I only can’t swing”.
