Anyone think rickie can close tomorrow?
Rickie's approach play and putting good enough to win if he keeps it in play, the concern as always is the driver gets wild when he's under pressure. If he can keep it out of the desert for 18 holes he's got a great chance. Big day for him after the couple of years he's had so interesting to see how he copes.

Though I've not seen a shot, and Rickie has extended lead - still find it hard to see him closing this. Remember him thinning a short wedge into the water as he tried to close his last win (then incurring a penalty trying to execute the resultant drop, too, if memory serves).
Grrrrrr - damn the lack of coverage!! He proceeds to throw in a double within ten minutes

How long before ole mate cracks the top 10? Before or after the Masters?
Not many in the world playing better than Sam at the moment. Hope he keeps playing to keep the momentum going, guys like Brooks or Oosty won't play much before spring so chance for him to get even higher.

I think right now TB he is a similar position and on a similar path to JT prior to his breakout year (2017). Maybe not as much hype as what was associated to JT but he had the bonus of being Spieth's best mate so had a higher profile than his results warranted at the time. Big things are coming
Yeah agree, not an instant star but he's just smoothly moved along, had a few bad final rounds but learning and gaining experience as he goes. You look at his stats and it's unusual for a guy who drives it as well as he does to putt as well as he does, sky's the limit.
