Scottie Scheffler didn’t move anywhere on Moving Day. He made par on the first seven holes, stretching his par string to 13 holes dating to Friday’s second round. He finally broke the birdie seal at No. 8, knocking a fairway bunker shot to 12 feet and holing the putt.
“Not many guys can pull that shot off, and then to follow it up with the putt…it was so important for Scheffler to make a birdie today before a bogey,” NBC’s Paul Azinger said.
Scheffler tugged his tee shot at the par-3 11th into a greenside bunker and failed to get up and down for his first bogey in 38 holes. He was even for the day and 19 under for the tournament when play was called for the day.
“I wasn’t playing my best, but I was kind of hanging in there,” Scheffler said. I was looking forward to giving myself some opportunities at the end, but then the horn went off.
Azinger noticed that Scheffler didn’t have his best stuff. “You can just tell by the way he’s carrying himself. He’s just trying to hang on. He’s just not dialed in,” he said. “A couple of dicey wedges for a guy who ordinarily, that’s his strength. He’s just hanging in there today, trying to figure something out.”
