The Italian looked to have the tournament under control around the turn until he suddenly opened the door for Tiger Woods and the chasing pack when he dumped his tee shot into the water at the short 12th and, after getting one shot back at 13, his pitch at the 15th clipped a tree and landed in the middle of the pond as he carded his second double-bogey in four holes.
Due to an ominous weather forecast, golfers will go off from the first and 10th tees in threesomes and Koepka will be followed around the course by the final grouping of Molinari, Tiger Woods and Tony Finau. I am so happy for him and for the game of golf.
He also set a record for the longest gap between Masters triumphs, the 14-year spread one year longer than the old mark set by South African Gary Player from 1961 to 1974.
