8.15: PGA Championship Breakdown
Ernie Johnson Ian Baker finch and bill crafts or -- the numbers would suggest it out of eight when he has the lead at the midway point of a major that tiger will. Add to his resume fifteenth major championship in. What's to stop that kind of thinking. Well nothing nothing nothing went -- basically gave him the Wanamaker trophy yesterday afternoon with set -- -- coming up late saying. It's gonna be really hot to be Tiger Woods he's plodding his way around he turned it over par round into an under par round just -- it was brilliant outing. He didn't seem to really have these tough she is today be sitting at these -- face on he knows what he's doing he's actually driving the ball very nicely and and that. Is an ominous sign for the rest of the field when tiger drives the ball well that seems in the past of any anything that really holds him back but certainly not holding you back here. Billy you've been with him every step of the way essentially the first tutors of this championship and what are your impressions especially of of yesterday's -- you don't believe. Well I thought you with a start that he had you know we struggled this is against him with the pace of the -- in the first three holes he left the first couple a -- that he blew the next one by a number three -- by he made that coming back. But as we eventually got further into the ground he became much more comfortable when he birdied the sixth hole. I thought that was huge many of the big drive on number seven. Hit a seven iron into that par five he got to one under at that point he did make a mistake on the tenth hole but. All in all I thought the only time that he really miss hit -- tee shot yesterday it was on the eleventh hole. Any made par there and then he made a great save at twelve. He came back with a great tee shot on thirteenth on the fourteen of fifteen I mean. -- -- and -- birdies there and you know he's got a fortunately yeah there was that stretch yesterday when he put together three consecutive birdies and then at the same time the bogey streak that -- got on all of a sudden. That -- really opened up.
