US Bank Championship round four: Why Ogilvie must be a saint
So history does not repeat itself, the third-round leader loses the plot, and instead Joe Ogilvie breaks his 229-event duck. If patience is a virtue Joe must be at God’s right hand.
Mind you, in the end it came down to a fluke: Ogilvie was as surprised as anyone with the eagle on the 16th that effectively killed off the opposition. He deserved it though for raising his game in round four both off the tee and with the putter.
And did I say opposition? With just three bogeys to show for his first 10 holes, it was clearly going to end in tears for Tim Herron. He could only find three fairways Sunday, struggled to make nine greens in regulation, and his putting was the worst it had been all week.
So was Tim Clark’s as he yet again let a lead slip coming down the home stretch. Since this is the weekend for the question, is he another choker?
Put it this way: he has gone into his last two back nines on a Sunday in the lead and come out the other end with a total of four bogeys and just one birdie.
As ever, you just shake your head and move on.
