yeah yeah cuz there's two things one do

play05:14

we have is there any

play05:16

ketchup yeah but it's in the bag over

play05:18

there all right soz I I can't eat chips

play05:20

without ketchup and also I'm just trying

play05:22

to be a little bit a little bit

play05:23

healthier at the moment so I feel like

play05:25

if I get the chicken done and I'm full I

play05:27

won't eat the

play05:28

chips if I eat the chicks first I'll be

play05:30

like I can't leave the chicken W yeah

play05:32

that's a good tactic but that's just me

play05:34

at the moment Nice Shot pal P

play05:36

eye very very nice that green looks hell

play05:40

you can work on that putting tip where

play05:41

you said start looking at the Green from

play05:43

here that putting that green looks very

play05:46

is that the big thing around these

play05:48

greens big

play05:49

undulations yeah yeah big undulating

play05:53

greens you look like swinging it good

play05:55

I'm getting there I've been genuinely

play05:57

I've been really working hard and you

play05:59

know uh James Robinson yeah yeah so he's

play06:01

been helping me a little bit just trying

play06:02

to get a bit of face control I've always

play06:04

been too open and flippy wow look at

play06:07

that brought the red arrows in for the

play06:11

match right this is uh this is going to

play06:14

be an interesting P about half way it

play06:15

goes down a roller coaster of a hill and

play06:18

it's going to be fast so I just need to

play06:20

really gauge my distance control it's

play06:23

then once it gets over the hill it's

play06:24

going to go a little bit left so I just

play06:26

just need to get it over that hill and

play06:29

then gravity should play its part come

play06:31

on nice two put on the

play06:36

first it's not going to be that fast is

play06:40

it I think you're at tournament speeds

play06:43

there ah thought was going to be really

play06:45

rapid ah good drive good iron shot and

play06:48

then a poor first put that's frustrating

play06:52

right Tommy after a nice shot from the

play06:54

bunker yeah just On The Fringe of the

play06:56

green good for distance seeo much in it

play06:58

Tommy there's a yeah a bit of right to

play07:01

left fell with my feet about a two but

play07:09

uphill Oh Oh I thought you had

play07:13

there I thought that was going to be a

play07:16

potential Big Two Shot swing then nice

play07:19

par after finding the Trap steady all

play07:22

right maybe not as fast as I was

play07:24

predicting on that first put down the

play07:26

hill there's not a lot of break in this

play07:28

I'm just going to roll it to drop in the

play07:30

front edge let's start with a par

play07:34

Rick oh lovely

play07:39

po that's a great po I'm Happ the first

play07:42

time I've played one of these matches

play07:43

and not bed or doubled the first oh well

play07:45

that's a good

play07:46

sign I Tred my best okay second hole par

play07:51

five 583 yards um bit of a blind t-shot

play07:55

it got two bunkers that you can see the

play07:56

face off and does it go right from there

play07:58

Tommy uh a yeah a little bit yeah not a

play08:02

lot not it's it's not load um but it

play08:04

does go a little bit right downwind just

play08:07

over the corner of that

play08:11

bunker low cut bomb yeah perfect it

play08:15

wasn't pretty but it'll work perfect

play08:17

right going for the high bomb uh well I

play08:21

was just trying I thought you might do

play08:23

that I'll just h a stock one as

play08:26

well a you've gone for the big high bomb

play08:29

don't be giving me

play08:30

Stock

play08:34

Shop might be just off the right side of

play08:36

the Fairway it might be good I'm not

play08:37

sure it's going to be 100 yards past me

play08:40

okay not my finest drive but it's middle

play08:42

of the Fairway so I didn't strike it

play08:44

which means I've got a long long long

play08:46

way into screen 284 yards to be exact so

play08:49

I'm not going to go for it cuz that's

play08:50

stupid Tommy at a great shot you have

play08:52

you seen it yet I can just see there

play08:54

yeah he's still on The Fairway which is

play08:55

perfect um what have you got three wood

play08:58

I have but I don't think for me in my

play09:00

strategy if I hit three would and leave

play09:02

myself 50 yards short it's my worst shot

play09:05

I'd rather hit it

play09:08

two3

play09:11

240 it's down Na downwind and running

play09:14

like I think you'll get it in a greens

play09:16

side track with a

play09:17

three-wood I feel like I've got a better

play09:19

chance hitting a like a leaving myself

play09:21

100

play09:24

yards you for the match you'd want me to

play09:27

hit it 50 yards short of the green

play09:28

because that's where no but I think you

play09:30

L it green side but that's where I'd be

play09:31

terrible so I'm going to hit seven iron

play09:34

Leave Myself 110 yards pitch it into the

play09:37

green and knock it in for birdie okay um

play09:39

the only thing I would like your advice

play09:41

on Tommy is where the hell am I

edge of the back bunker yeah yeah just

play09:49

HED at that yeah great is there nothing

play09:51

down there uh there's nothing to worry

play12:34

jeez skimmed past the edge M read I will

play12:38

Mark that okay you go for it taking my

play12:42

time what' you feel there not a lot

play12:45

almost

play12:47

nothing I think the the biggest

play12:49

influence would be the wind but it's

play12:50

almost straight down yeah I'm just going

play12:52

to go straight at it I'm upset that your

play12:54

strategy is going to

play12:56

work why you do did you did you read it

play12:59

a little bit too much no I just wanted

play13:02

to do it through OD all

play13:06

right right for birdie here on number

play13:10

two no yours gone right to

play13:13

left that's what I thought mine would

play13:16

do oh really fancied that as

play13:20

well I'll tap it

play13:22

in oh that's hurts but a really well

play13:26

played hole Yeah I had to think about it

play13:28

but yeah that was the shame did you hit

play13:30

your straight I I think I went dead

play13:32

straight and I might have just slightly

play13:33

pulled it

play13:36

annoyingly yeah I think I just slightly

play13:38

pulled it J I think it is straight I

play13:41

think I read it correctly but didn't it

play13:42

a good put no I think it was broke

play13:45

through two

play13:46

holes yeah 10 under level path no blood

play13:50

no blood yet what we looking at Tommy so

play13:53

I always like see there's a tree that

play13:54

the trunk is showing I like hitting it

play13:56

at that and then does it dog like

play13:58

laughter yes so the green is probably

play14:00

where the tall building is like that

play14:02

kind of line and then what is it rough

play14:04

left if you go left okay yeah so

play14:06

anywhere left of the bunker that is in

play14:08

the

play14:09

Fairway is is or there's a tiny bit of

play14:12

Fairway there but most of it's rough

play14:15

yeah third hole power four 452 yards

play14:18

turned into the wind yeah back into the

play14:19

wind now so at the tree with with your

play14:22

your ball flight should pay dividends

play14:23

there well let's see if I can hit one in

play14:25

the

play14:27

middle

play14:32

driver is not good left of the roof yeah

play14:34

is that g in the bunker no I think it's

play14:37

uh in the pine in the native area yeah

play14:39

that was a weird t-

play14:42

shot a at that tree to

play14:46

Perfection literally at that

play14:49

tree great

play14:52

shot H okay not the best t- shot there

play14:55

I've ended up nearly in someone's uh

play14:57

Back Garden luckily I'm not but I'm 200

play15:01

yards away from the hole I'm gonna take

play15:03

a five iron just to see but I think look

play15:07

at tomy's face I think all I have to do

play15:10

is pit it out you're intriguing me with

play15:11

the

play15:12

fiveon can I you didn't take my advice

play15:16

on the last so I'll stay quiet no no

play15:18

don't be that well I didn't make birdie

play15:19

did I should have gone for your advice

play15:21

oh yeah no it's not

play15:23

five oh it's not I don't even know what

play15:25

club it is cuz it's not even a

play15:27

wedge uh

play15:29

could do we just get a new Y golf P so

play15:31

really what are you going with I'm going

play15:33

to try and bump a 79 out yeah I like

play15:35

that okay I'm going to go 7 iron back of

play15:37

the

play15:38

stance God I'm not far away from that

play15:40

wall see if we can get on the flat bit

play15:41

near where Tomy is on that

play15:45

Hill beautiful golf shot the flat great

play15:48

golf shot thank you okay tell me how

play15:50

five you got 161 little bit downhill but

play15:54

then into the wind playing close to

play15:57

170 you got eight iron I've got an eight

play16:01

somewhere between a shoulders and a

play16:03

smooth I think I'm going to hit a really

play16:05

good like strong hands to shoulders

play16:09

eight oh it's a

play16:11

shocker get over ah did it clear the

play16:15

bunker don't know I think it I think it

play16:17

did doesn't deserve much okay 150 yards

play16:20

on the

play16:21

nose into Breeze a little bit like

play16:25

tomy's um for me here now I just want to

play16:28

make sure that we just put ourselves in

play16:29

a nice spot and give ourselves a look

play16:31

for par so I'm going to go right to the

play16:33

flag and just try and get my distance

play16:37

perfect nice golf shot oh be really nice

play16:41

just drawing it in shot Tracer

play16:45

oh

play16:47

hello sorry let me get your divot yeah I

play16:49

think you deserve

play16:50

it thanks right I don't know whether

play16:54

mine do you think mine carried the

play16:55

bunker or went I thought it did but I

play16:58

couldn't it look like it did but I oh no

play17:00

it's not in the it's in the

play17:04

bunker um yeah not really the place to

play17:06

be I think after kind

play17:09

of I'm you know I'm trying to do a

play17:11

little bit more and it's hard certainly

play17:12

in these matches where there's lots

play17:14

going on I'm trying to think right plot

play17:16

my way yeah actually play golf like

play17:19

there I didn't need to go for the flag I

play17:21

went to stay right at the flag and just

play17:23

leave myself a nice P that's why I

play17:24

should have done well no cuz you're

play17:26

you're almost chasing I'm like defending

play17:28

defend to some degree defending champ

play17:32

okay shocking iron shot short

play17:42

sided see how many bunker tips

play17:45

are

play17:50

no from there I'm confused how you why

play17:52

you

play17:54

disappointed cuz it was always low came

play17:56

out right distance was amazing I'm gonna

play17:59

get a nice read though the distance was

play18:02

really

play18:06

good okay for par an outrageous par this

play18:10

would be a great

play18:13

par expecting to potentially pick up a

play18:15

couple to I might actually lose

play18:18

one I

play18:21

uh my eyes are telling me one thing my

play18:23

feet are telling me something else what'

play18:24

you go with in that instant I try and go

play18:26

with my feet which is really difficult

play18:28

or I try and go as my feet I to tell me

play18:31

the

play18:33

truth I think it's dead straight you

play18:36

giving every option available so far I

play18:38

think it's dead straight no it is I know

play18:41

it is dead straight yeah if anything

play18:44

don't give it don't give it outside the

play18:46

hole but it's going to fall to the left

play18:49

which doesn't make sense cuz that's so

play18:50

big over there but in this little

play18:53

isolated

play18:54

area and you can see how the cup looks

play18:56

like it's a bit left as well okay for

play18:59

par an outrageous par come on Rick put a

play19:02

good stroke on

play19:05

it ah

play19:09

a I thought he left it short I read it

play19:12

perfect I just under hit

play19:14

it ah that would have been a hell of a

play19:16

par that would have been a big

play19:17

confidence booster then

play19:20

right in for boy I mean I would have

play19:23

after seen where my second shot finished

play19:25

I would have probably taken bogey but it

play19:26

feels like I've dropped a shot there

play19:28

have you did drop a shot I did drop a

play19:29

shot but feels worse right go on then

play19:32

Tommy for a par great up and down from

play19:33

the

play19:36

bunker yes well done mate good put right

play19:41

manag to save shot well you you've got

play19:43

one back on me I'm now 9 under Tommy's

play19:45

level through three hes okay fourth hole

play19:49

par three and get this it's 250 yards

play19:53

playing eight yards downhill so it's 242

play19:55

yards from this te I mean to some golf

play19:59

courses this is a power four um what you

play20:02

hitting Tom well perfect shots of

play20:05

fivewood but the pins at the very very

play20:07

very back and it's a really narrow

play20:09

opening so what I'm going to do is I'm

play20:11

going to like a

play20:12

drill sort of draw three iron and see if

play20:16

I can get it low enough and try and

play20:18

chasing up the green a bit I don't think

play20:19

I can get well I'm pretty certain I

play20:21

can't get all the way back there but

play20:22

that's just a shot that I see okay I

play20:25

think I'm have to do something

play20:27

similar

play20:31

ah the air n tried too hard with

play20:37

it that bunker yeah I got the hook I got

play20:41

the low hook that was rubbish what

play20:44

happens when like the pins tucked in

play20:45

that left corner I'm going to go at the

play20:48

bunker on the right and just try and hit

play20:50

it in between the flag and the bunker

play20:51

I've also got three cuz my three would

play20:53

have I don't feel like I'd keep it on

play20:55

the planet my three would

play20:57

there a wasn't comfortable on

play21:04

that sto quick got 100 yards left in

play21:08

neither of those were

play21:11

uh I really wasn't comfortable stood

play21:13

over it silly mistake okay that was a

play21:16

terrible terrible strike there Myan been

play21:19

hitting it well recently as well but

play21:21

that was a that was a very disappointing

play21:22

shot finished up in the uh what you even

play21:26

call this uh um

play21:30

dust what's tricky about this the only

play21:32

way I know how to play this is a back

play21:34

foot kind of bumper think you should do

play21:36

that and I've not the only issue is I've

play21:38

not got a lot of well I've got a lot of

play21:40

green to work with but where I want to

play21:41

land it I'm going to land it just on

play21:43

that hill in front of the

play21:47

Green Oh sit sit Oh I thought that was

play21:51

going to be unbelievable then how has it

play21:54

done that I don't know I thought it had

play21:56

like deadened it the one place I didn't

play21:58

want to hit it was over the green and I

play22:00

really thought I'd played that perfect

play22:01

then right Tommy that is a big bunker

play22:04

it's not really the place to

play22:06

be

play22:08

oh oh what a

play22:12

shot played it better than I thought I

play22:14

would that was perfect okay after I feel

play22:17

a very unfortunate second shot there

play22:20

I've ran into this little runoff area

play22:21

behind the green this has to be

play22:25

perfect landed on the green one hop in

play22:37

oh right I'm going to go

play22:40

again for a four

play22:44

now good

play22:47

shot oh making hard work of this hole it

play22:51

is inevitable after too good a start I

play22:53

think

play22:55

Tommy the game always catches you ah God

play22:59

damn so annoyed about those little shots

play23:02

I've been so much better at them but

play23:04

just under a bit of pressure they're

play23:05

just not there yet but got to keep

play23:07

trying okay for a double

play23:12

bogey that knocked it through the

play23:15

brake oh it's a terrible

play23:22

hole 10 for

play23:25

six oh the faster this would be amazing

play23:29

up and down hey what that

play23:34

bunker yes well done

play23:37

Tommy that's a big swing in the match

play23:39

picked up a lot on that one well the

play23:41

last two holes you've just taken four

play23:43

shots off me that's

play23:46

f ah

play23:51

the it's not inter it I you still got a

play23:54

big lead I know but I wanted to I wanted

play23:57

to beat your GR roast

play23:59

today I get through two hour level far

play24:02

um oh I'm gooded I'm good it feels like

play24:05

it's always a bad I always have bring

play24:07

throw in a bad ho throwing in three

play24:09

shots there back to you you pared it

play24:11

made a great par but I need to snap out

play24:14

of it cuz I'm still ahead yeah I

play24:16

actually remember gaining a lot on you

play24:18

last time and then you went through a

play24:19

really nice patch I just throw him away

play24:21

like the buy Skittles throw them away

play24:23

and just go whatever I don't need these

play24:25

shots no exactly and then oh that for it

play24:28

I think the crows just had our chicken

play24:30

wrap or well it's going to be your

play24:31

chicken wrap you've eaten yours oh right

play24:34

come on let's get it back okay fifth

play24:37

hole power four tell me what have we got

play24:39

um there's a

play24:41

bunker the the one that it's right in

play24:43

the middle of the in the middle of the

play24:44

Fairway is about I want to say 300 yds

play24:47

away uh down off the left yeah to reach

play24:51

it yeah winds down off the left and then

play24:53

you just hit up to the green hopefully

play24:55

out of the Fairway with some kind of

play24:57

wedge in your hand hand hit it close

play24:58

knock it

play25:05

in should be

play25:09

perfect yeah nice ball there not want to

play25:12

go mini there uh you think Minnie might

play25:15

well there's always in the back of my

play25:17

mind that Minnie might reach it and I

play25:19

know this can't so I'm likely to just

play25:20

put a better swing on a fivewood oh okay

play25:23

fight back well I'm saying fight back

play25:25

come on good one bad old doesn't

play25:28

determine you straight at that bunker I

play25:30

don't think I'll

play25:32

reach stay there should be good stay

play25:37

there get out the

play25:40

r

play25:45

oh looks good Tommy it's in a good line

play25:49

oh look really

play25:51

good okay I'm a little bit unfortunate

play25:54

there I pushed it a touch I mean look at

play25:56

the look at the line L that's the line

play25:58

between the thicker roof and then the

play26:00

not so thick roof before we get to the

play26:02

Fairway and it's just right on the line

play26:05

136 yards away I'm going to hit pitching

play26:07

wedge but not a hard one just a nice

play26:09

little 3/4

play26:13

one shot

play26:17

there great shot if it's good for

play26:19

distance hopefully I should be right

play26:21

that was a good shot

play26:26

thanks bounce back

play26:28

bounce back come on long range put here

play26:31

from Tommy looks like it's going to fall

play26:33

from the left side but it's very much

play26:39

downhill stay up do it no great P good

play26:43

roll good roll right down the hill right

play26:47

to left this would

play26:50

be a real confidence booster after that

play26:53

last hole come on drop her in it's going

play26:56

to swing quite a bit certainly as it

play26:58

picks up speed down the

play27:00

hill give it lots of

play27:03

respect oh it's perfect

play27:07

Line This can't actually

play27:24

miss that is how to talk to your ball

play27:29

let's go come on big bounce back put

play27:33

there look how happy he is I went I went

play27:38

from but the down all Downer and like o

play27:42

oh crap it's a birdie I'm the best

play27:45

player in the world I all right thanks F

play27:49

right that really

play27:51

helped yeah Circle your birdie yes

play27:54

please sir Circle the

play27:55

birdie um thanks mate that's got me back

play27:59

to 7 under your level yeah so I don't

play28:02

know and you drove it in the rof okay

play28:05

beautiful part three here Tommy what we

play28:06

say oh yeah front right pin 170 to the

play28:09

pin

play28:11

and I always find it tricky to know

play28:14

where exactly the wind is on this hole

play28:18

but um you got big flag over there it

play28:21

should just be I thought it was going to

play28:23

be in off the

play28:24

left feel like almost straight into yeah

play28:27

it does okay I'm going to do a six iron

play28:29

nice safe

play28:34

play oh

play28:36

no oh bunker that started drawing so

play28:41

nice you went pin seeking I was hoping

play28:44

to draw it off the pin but I I think it

play28:46

is a little bit into and off the left

play28:48

you know cuz that should have drawn it's

play28:51

quite strong the wind isn't it it is

play28:53

strong I think it's definitely a tiny

play28:55

bit off the left

play29:00

and then wind see see how it's moving

play29:02

back to the

play29:04

right not that had to

play29:08

go Tommy oh I need to go get another

play29:12

pole did you play it it's back from here

play29:15

there's no Drop

play29:16

Zone oh yeah there is a drop

play29:20

zone the silence in the air I thought I

play29:24

didn't think that was going to be short

play29:26

oh no

play29:28

did you know as soon as you hit it no

play29:30

cuz I thought I played the shot I wanted

play29:32

to but I was just looking at it in the

play29:33

air and I was like I don't know just

play29:35

looked like it was

play29:37

floating

play29:40

oh a

play29:43

drama to the Drop Zone

play29:50

please

play29:52

o kind of sat

play29:56

down

play30:00

oh really

play30:01

nice thanks nicely played okay so

play30:05

Tommy's got that for four after dropping

play30:06

in the drop zone I just finished heing

play30:08

the bunker I'm gutted I honestly thought

play30:10

I'd played such a nice shot as it was

play30:12

midair uh not got loads of green to work

play30:14

with so just need to Splash it

play30:18

out oh you lucky

play30:24

[Music]

play30:26

sod

play30:28

that should have been in that

play30:32

house that is a fantastic up and

play30:36

down really really well done thanks

play30:41

okay right to left just a little bit in

play30:45

it up the

play30:47

hill textbook

play30:49

PA sand safe this can't miss this can't

play30:55

miss can't miss

play30:59

nice nice Pa thanks

play31:02

mate great bunker Shir no thanks it's a

play31:05

different it's a new style right I'm 7

play31:07

under Tommy's one

play31:10

over sorry Tommy what for just I mean

play31:14

that wasn't wasn't pretty it's all right

play31:17

and and I suppose a three to three

play31:19

somehow but that was not nice okay what

play31:22

a hole par five straight up the hill

play31:25

yeah I I think we're going to continue

play31:26

on shot swinging over the next few hes

play31:30

yeah what we got up next par five and

play31:31

then what five and then two pretty like

play31:33

demanding par

play31:35

fours okay so just Dr down the middle in

play31:38

it uh ideally and wind's going to be off

play31:41

the left of fraction yeah you can't

play31:43

really feel the wind cuz for blocked out

play31:45

I mean you could hit any number of shot

play31:48

shapes really with the drive

play31:50

so thanks I'm going to go straight down

play31:53

the

play31:56

middle

play31:58

going

play31:59

right in the line straw

play32:03

rough it's just come back into the roof

play32:05

did it come back into the roof yeah not

play32:07

horrendous to be fair it's so hard to

play32:10

hit this drive far enough left like with

play32:11

when the wind's this way yeah I think

play32:13

that was probably a little cut and then

play32:14

it carried on the

play32:17

wind a yes that one felt

play32:21

good that was

play32:25

crushed cent LED it

play32:29

okay so I've just just come up onto this

play32:32

hill I did land it on this bit but it's

play32:34

just running into the roof it's a very

play32:36

very long par five here so I wouldn't

play32:37

have been able to get there in two

play32:38

anyway even if I miss it straight down

play32:40

the Fairway so makes my decision a bit

play32:43

easier I'm going to try and choping 79

play32:45

down there just going have a quick look

play32:47

at this lie though like even though the

play32:49

roof isn't that long it really really

play32:52

sits down so I I really need to hit down

play32:55

on it

play32:58

oh

play33:01

jeez that roof's

play33:04

hard um might have to be a mini driver

play33:08

this o just not convinced like probably

play33:12

in fivewood on the green to the front

play33:15

but I want more than that Rick I like it

play33:18

I think you should I you deserve more

play33:20

than that is this a club you you enjoy

play33:23

hitting off the

play35:48

start it on the left edge of the second

play35:52

one on the right yeah hopefully it's

play35:56

going to the wind's just going to move

play35:57

it into the middle onto that middle

play35:59

bunker okay that's the that's the the

play36:01

desired end position that

play36:04

is oh that's no throw a ball no

play36:08

underneath it flush what reached it

play36:12

probably in the bunker okay straight at

play36:14

that bunker come on hit a straight golf

play36:17

shot oh and it's a

play36:21

beauty great shot should work looking at

play36:24

it it's a good

play36:25

shot

play36:28

I've got to remember the straight ones

play36:29

to nobody likes a poser they don't

play36:30

happen very often okay 178 yards left

play36:33

into the pin pins at the front actually

play36:37

looks like a green that's not got many

play36:38

bunkers around it no down Breeze I'm

play36:41

going to hit seven iron and just see if

play36:43

we can pop it straight on the

play36:46

green oh pulled

play36:51

it

play36:55

pull

play37:00

had

play37:01

nothing okay 129 hit it close like a

play37:08

four looks

play37:12

nice

play37:16

spin

play37:18

no thought that was going to be better

play37:20

oh that's it you do my div it rick I've

play37:22

got you I've got

play37:25

you

play37:36

okay okay so just pulled it left of the

play37:39

green just on this little bank here in

play37:40

the roof the plan is to land it on the

play37:43

green and let it kind of just Mosey on

play37:45

round to the right I like the look at

play37:46

this shot see if we can chip one

play37:53

in not been doing that not been doing

play37:57

that at all I don't it's like I for I

play38:01

don't know it's like I forget how to do

play38:03

it but now I'm in I want to chip again

play38:07

now it's probably not the right shot now

play38:09

I'm going to chip again just to almost

play38:11

prove that I can do it come

play38:13

on then I catch it too

play38:16

thin oh Rick we're not doing very well

play38:20

on this all we I'm very I'm very

play38:22

frustrated after that there middle of

play38:24

the Fairway and I'm what he got this for

play38:25

five

play38:34

nice like for

play38:38

bogey ah

play38:43

frustrated that was lined up perfect

play38:46

then you see that Pi ball right come on

play38:50

see if I can salvage a five after bloody

play38:52

anyway forget what I've done this is

play38:54

just a new put right to left

play38:58

good looking P

play39:00

oh that had a break good P oh six double

play39:05

bogey from the middle of the

play39:07

Fairway that hurts that hurts a lot

play39:11

right I'm five under tomy's one over six

play39:16

shots in it through eight holes ninth

play39:18

hole 500 yard power four straight back

play39:21

into Breeze uphill drive straight down

play39:24

the middle yeah tightish Fairway as you

play39:27

get further up need to drive like a hit

play39:30

on

play39:33

seven stay there ball stay there

play39:42

ball can see it maybe yeah I think it's

play39:45

going to be in the first first first cut

play39:48

okay I'm going to just allow for that

play39:49

wind a little bit going to go down the

play39:51

left

play39:52

side good swing stay

play39:55

there

play39:59

yeah

play40:00

perfect it's good it's going to say I'd

play40:03

be surprised if it reached that

play40:05

bunker position a yeah that felt nice

play40:09

okay second shot in s Par Four 200 yards

play40:11

on the nose and again this 500 yard par

play40:15

for uh uphill wind feels like

play40:19

it's why does the wind suddenly feel

play40:21

like it's down it should I think it

play40:23

should be helping off the left okay I'm

play40:25

going to go five iron

play40:27

try and rifle one straight at it I know

play40:29

it's a full five where it's a four I'm

play40:31

kind of trying to hit it a bit too

play40:34

soft fatted it that's a shame cuz it's

play40:37

right online kick

play40:40

left oh really fatted it how far are you

play40:43

Tommy 180 to the pin a little bit uphill

play40:46

but I do think that wind's helping I'm

play40:49

going to with a good eight just hope it

play40:51

doesn't spin too much out of the

play40:55

semi be on it be on

play40:59

it

play41:01

yeah right this is uh this is not where

play41:05

I want to be in Life or is where I want

play41:07

to be in life here in beautiful Dubai

play41:09

playing with topic Fleetwood yes this

play41:11

shot is not not where I want to be but

play41:13

Redemption I feel like I A Couple of bad

play41:15

pit shots today or chip shots which have

play41:16

really annoyed me cuz that's not been

play41:18

the trend

play41:20

recently this the only issue with this

play41:22

one it's a bit interg grain which makes

play41:24

it a touch harder

play41:27

knew

play41:31

it

play41:33

oh this grass is really affecting my

play41:36

short game today enormously can't seem

play41:38

to catch them at all howd you play that

play41:40

one where it's more into grain yeah

play41:42

they're horrible aren't they I'm not

play41:44

bringing the duff into

play41:49

play oh that's

play41:51

nice nice shot I just feel like the when

play41:55

it's grainy

play41:57

yeah if you can chip around here then

play41:59

you're pretty much set for anywhere

play42:01

you're ever going to

play42:02

go I just feel like it's so difficult to

play42:05

get that strike right I'm also going to

play42:06

go I want I do want to chip it cuz I

play42:08

want don't be scared of the wedge I

play42:11

don't want be scared of the wedge but

play42:12

then I just feel like I'm going to mess

play42:14

it

play42:14

up no I'm going toip it I don't want

play42:18

another double to finish I'm going to go

play42:20

with your

play42:23

ball lovely lovely good shot

play42:28

thanks just need to put within 50 yards

play42:30

who am I kidding what am I trying to use

play42:32

a wedge for right put for par for you

play42:35

Tommy bogey for

play42:37

me yeah nice

play42:46

thanks oh

play42:52

rck oh

play42:55

r

play42:57

my God how have I made double from there

play43:00

on the wrong kind of train

play43:03

yeah what a disastrous end to the front

play43:06

line after after feeling pretty strong

play43:10

start I've gone triple bogy on the PA

play43:12

three double on eight after be in middle

play43:14

of the Fairway double on nine after be

play43:16

in middle of the

play43:17

Fairway ouch right I'm now technically

play43:20

three under what are you now one over

play43:24

four in it going into the about nine

play43:26

yeah ah he still have the lead well yeah

play43:31

but throwing him away all right 10 H

play43:33

what we're looking up 10th Hole uh winds

play43:36

off the right pretty straight away par 4

play43:37

not a very long one there's always more

play43:40

room up the right than you think it's

play43:42

quite a tight Fairway but I always feel

play43:44

like right is better do you want to go

play43:47

with that bunker on the right yes

play43:49

perfect okay four in it bat nine come on

play43:53

it's shake some of these all the drama

play43:55

starts

play43:59

perfect

play44:03

ball love that good I think love

play44:10

that down on that right side come on

play44:13

wind that's going to be really good I

play44:16

think I think it bounced yeah if it's

play44:19

not then it's my fault no it was it was

play44:22

just right at that bunker found the

play44:24

Fairway here on 10 150 yard

play44:26

yards Tommy's right down there 40 yards

play44:29

further on you'll have a little flick of

play44:30

a gat wedge probably Sand Wedge um what

play44:34

that pin Tommy is that left on on the

play44:37

green but left of the green um yeah so

play44:39

that's left side of the green there's

play44:40

probably a few yards behind it but not a

play44:43

lot so I'm better just keeping this

play44:45

right at the p uh just right yeah I

play44:47

think there will be a bit of room left

play44:48

but I think um yeah on that bit of white

play44:52

house yes my goal is to shoot level p b

play44:56

n and let you chase me okay no more

play44:59

double Bogies not a single one on this

play45:00

Pat

play45:02

n pulled it pulled it what about the

play45:08

sun

play45:11

104

play45:14

think's hurting is

play45:17

it I don't think it was on the te though

play45:19

no it keeps make it really keep

play45:20

switching round cuz I felt like it was

play45:22

helping when I stood over my ball it's

play45:24

hard to play it not hurting

play45:28

the P it's light moving I

play45:35

know get up where is it yeah really nice

play45:38

right at the pin uh might just need us

play45:41

to go a touch okay so just off the side

play45:43

of the green I actually thought this was

play45:45

going to be further left it's not too

play45:46

bad here going to go a little gap wedge

play45:49

I don't know what high it's I don't I

play45:51

need to think positive vibes I'm going

play45:53

to chip this one in I can I can see it

play45:55

dropping in

play45:57

that was

play45:59

nice very good thank you really fancy to

play46:03

look at that for some reason it's weird

play46:05

is it yeah all right Tommy birdie put

play46:08

here on

play46:13

10

play46:15

yes

play46:16

yes great

play46:18

P that was an absolute perfect judge of

play46:23

speed and distance Direction line

play46:26

okay for

play46:28

p mam thank you I didn't really want

play46:32

that put after missing the last one the

play46:34

chip or the pot no exactly they neither

play46:37

of those my favorite but three in it

play46:39

yeah with eight holes to go 11th or

play46:42

power 4 401 yards is it what's it doing

play46:46

Tommy well so the green you can see the

play46:48

bunker in the distance that's at the

play46:50

very back of the green I think I can

play46:51

just see the top of the flag

play46:53

actually like when I'm playing the

play46:55

tournament I always just hit I hit an

play46:57

iron into the Fairway here and then it's

play46:59

always like a wedger an R9 or something

play47:03

um but I for some reason when I'm not in

play47:06

the tournament I like itting driver uh

play47:08

the well the course is playing softer so

play47:10

the Green's a bit more acceptive if I do

play47:11

it in the rough but up that right side

play47:13

now it's quite tight up there um but you

play47:18

know you can get relatively close within

play47:20

like 80 yards or so and then okay I like

play47:23

it well you started strong on the bat

play47:24

nine

play47:29

nice

play47:30

ball that's in the Fairway I

play47:33

think nice ball I think she have about

play47:36

80 hours from there uh is less

play47:41

or I I don't know

play47:45

okay okay I'm just going to keep

play47:47

anywhere anywhere right of that left

play47:48

bunker really with just thinking that at

play47:51

the window at that White House in the

play47:52

background

play47:54

yeah

play47:56

oh that was

play47:58

weak out there carry that trap if it

play48:01

carries the bunker like everything's

play48:02

fine it was a really weak strike so

play48:04

you're hitting up the green from there

play48:06

okay bit of a weak t- shot there

play48:08

finished over this bunker but oh

play48:10

honestly this

play48:12

L it's so sat down I'm 150 yards away

play48:16

from the flag uh I'm going to just try

play48:19

and absolutely use all my popey might

play48:23

and try and get it somewhat near the

play48:25

green with a knife IR there's just that

play48:26

bunker right in line with the flag that

play48:28

I want to get over or or stay slightly

play48:30

right of it keep it just right of it

play48:31

yeah yeah I'm going to go that bunker in

play48:33

the back right and then just smash it as

play48:36

hard as I

play48:38

can oh my

play48:42

God oh my God it's all right it's gone

play48:45

to just your distance though my my best

play48:48

distance ever oh that is I thick was

play48:52

that honestly that is crazy it was

play48:55

really really sat down great Drive Tommy

play48:58

thank you 76 yards that wasn't far off

play49:00

80 yeah that's really nice come on see a

play49:03

birdie

play49:05

Blitz strike get

play49:09

up bit pushy one it pin ey okay after

play49:13

that hack out of the

play49:14

roof I literally managed to hit that

play49:17

nine in 110 yards then so and the thing

play49:20

is out that roof you know it's not going

play49:21

to go that far but if I'd gone a Tian

play49:24

less Loft it would have it I would have

play49:26

struggled to get it out at all so just

play49:28

had to take my medicine even pitch one

play49:30

close from 60

play49:33

yards skinny bite hard that's it oh

play49:38

after fighting a few of those it was

play49:39

inevitable oh I'm really frustrated

play49:42

myself on these shots today just need to

play49:44

keep getting ricked to within 50 yards

play49:45

and we're golden okay thinned it a

play49:49

little bit on the back Edge gives me

play49:51

another chance to try and chit one in

play49:53

here from for par there hardly any

play49:55

breaking

play49:58

this

play49:59

shut run a bit oh all right Tommy come

play50:03

on let's go back to back birdies here on

play50:06

the front on the back nine yeah nice

play50:07

start to the back to get to underpath

play50:10

and to really start closing this gap

play50:16

down

play50:18

yes

play50:20

yes he's coming to play now b nine okay

play50:24

tomy's one on

play50:26

now this to this to drop a shot and

play50:29

actually to be two under it's to stay in

play50:31

the lead this to stay in the lead by

play50:34

one what done oh that was a bad the

play50:38

t-shot LED to that cuz it was just so

play50:40

thick that roof right one in it Tommy

play50:44

yeah made a big gain recently big gain

play50:47

on those last last few holes okay what

play50:50

hole yeah it's really strong Par Four

play50:53

again it's kind of a hard one to line up

play50:55

on this this cuz the te is going all

play50:56

that way okay 466 yard Par Four uphill

play51:01

Tommy fleetwoods now just one behind

play51:03

I've never been this close to

play51:07

you oh he's got the driver

play51:13

flying That Swing felt really good that

play51:15

was better that was really

play51:17

nice yeah even even in the last match I

play51:20

was to behind with one to play I've

play51:21

never been within one oh yeah this is

play51:25

new territory for me I need to I need to

play51:27

do something here I need to do something

play51:29

pretty special you're not making

play51:31

mistakes I need to make

play51:35

birdies get right just a tiny bit yeah

play51:38

great

play51:39

Drive Great drive thank

play51:44

you always plays um like long this shot

play51:49

no it genuinely even longer than the the

play51:51

number yeah okay it's well it's 186

play51:55

playing uphill so it's 194 yards and you

play51:58

say it's then playing longer than that

play51:59

it always yeah I mean it's into the wind

play52:01

but for some reason I always feel like

play52:03

this shot plays long what's that pin

play52:05

doing just at the front yeah so that's

play52:07

front left so um anywhere right of the

play52:10

pin really like even um I mean not being

play52:13

negative but even that right trap is

play52:15

quite a nice little bunker shot it sort

play52:16

of you get it out and it rolls to the

play52:18

hole I mean the shot I'm kind of seeing

play52:20

is almost going out that bunker and

play52:21

trying to hit a hard draw into it oh

play52:23

yeah love it okay I've got four iron I'm

play52:26

going to go straight to that bunker on

play52:27

the right and just try and trap draw one

play52:29

in there love

play52:32

it oh it's not done enough good

play52:36

effort oh it didn't draw

play52:44

enough all right

play52:47

sit oh he's dialed uhoh Tommy is turning

play52:51

it

play52:53

on that's nice shot what you hit five uh

play52:57

six six jeez great shot thanks right

play53:00

Tommy is hit a fabulous iron shot to

play53:04

kind of 10 12 ft I ended up finding this

play53:07

bunker we said this bunker was fine

play53:10

though this is horrible um

play53:14

yeah I'm actually try and play like a

play53:17

conventional bunk shot this time yeah

play53:19

not like the last one that that was

play53:20

something I was experimenting with I

play53:22

mean it worked quite well was it my

play53:24

lesson

play53:30

come back come

play53:33

back pretty

play53:37

good yeah right Tommy for three yeah

play53:41

for in a row doing a mat Wallace on the

play53:45

bat

play53:47

nine as the Sun is setting here in Dubai

play53:49

this is uh this is pretty epic genuinely

play53:53

I know we've got a match going on I

play53:54

really want to see birded Dead Tommy

play53:56

just going an absolute birdy F frenzy on

play53:58

the back nine come on knock it

play54:05

in go put

play54:11

jeez oh it was a good po it was this to

play54:15

stay in the lead again oh God yeah right

play54:18

oh yeah front

play54:20

runner left to right slightly up the

play54:23

hill what did you feel there

play54:26

not a lot like one and a half one yeah I

play54:29

think the wind's making it hard cuz it

play54:30

feels like it's going to make it break

play54:32

more for par and to stay one

play54:36

ahead literally went straight off my put

play54:38

to face

play54:40

right that is the worst part I've hit

play54:42

all day and I've hit some bad ones match
