    Tigers third shot on 5 was not in the bunker. It was in the deep rough between the right bunkers and green. Standing behind the green I never liked how open he had the face. He had some green to work with but tried a blast that shot out on him. He should have used some contours and bump that thing imo.
    That 5️⃣hole can be made very simple if players understand that fairway short of the green is basically a continuation of the green. Tigers second shot should have been played for the front edge, where Jordan left his tee shot and made a simple 2 putt par, officially 1 putt.
    He made a mess of it. Erase that hole and Tiger was 3 under, tied with koepka who contrasted tigers mess at 5 with a miracle birdie from the left rough on the same hole. In classic koepka fashion he made the impossible simple to perfection. His thinking clear: only chance is to hit the flag, so he did that.
