On 17 he made the bogey, but it was totally bad luck. On his approach, the wind suddenly came up and he ended up short of the elevated green. His sand wedge carried to the 2nd tier, next to the pin, and checked up about 3 feet from the hole. Then it started rolling back. It almost stopped at the top of the hill, but it rolled down onto the bottom tier and turned toward the side of the green. It almost stopped on the green, but it rolled off and down the slope onto the fairway. Same shot again, same distance. This time he put it inside a foot and tapped in the bogey putt.
Watch out for Badds. I predict he will do well in this tournament. He's swinging very smooth, hitting it long and straight, and putting great. He had a good 2-putt on 18 from about 60 feet above the hole.
And, I just joined his fan club, Club Badds. GO BADDS! GO MacGregor !
