Final round of two over par 72 sees Padraig finish in a tie for 60th. It was a stop start type of round where he found it hard to build any momentum. An early bogey was cancelled out by a birdie four on the par five 3rd hole, but three bogeys in his last four holes had him out in two over par. Another shot went at the par four 11th hole but he yet again birdied the dangerous par three 15th hole. Onwards and upwards!
Third round of one under par 69 sees Padraig just outside the top 50 heading into Sundays final round. Four birdies and three dropped shots made up his card but it was the infamous “bear trap” that caught the eye as he played it in a magnificent two under par! Thirteen under par leads and Padraig tees off Sunday at 2.24pm local time.
A fine round of two under par 68 sees Padraig make the cut for the weekend at the Honda Classic. Starting on the back nine, he got off to an ideal start with two birdies in his first three holes but had to work hard after that to be out in two under. More of the same on his last nine holes as he mixed one dropped shot with a birdie on the par five 3rd hole. All to play for at the weekend!
Padraig opens his account at the Honda Classic with a two over par round of 72. He struggled most of the day making three bogeys and recording just one birdie on the par four 13th hole. He also found water on the par three 17th hole, part of a three hole stretch known as the Bear Trap! Five under par leads the tournament after the opening round.
Padraig plays this week on the main PGA Tour at the Honda Classic. He is of course a former two time winner of the event!
Tee Times – Padraig tees off in the opening round at 5.18pm local time with Zach Johnson and Luke Donald. Plenty of Ryder Cup talk!
