Rod Pampling birdied his last 2 holes at Congressional for even par. The course is playing tough with only 22 players are under par at the moment and the ball will not stop on the greens out of the rough.
“At least during the Open you could get it to land on the green from the rough,” Woods said. “They had graduated rough. There’s no graduated rough here this week. If it’s not in the fairway then it’s in the deep stuff. It’s a different setup. It’s hard and fast, and we have to be careful a lot of times, and when you have an opportunity to be aggressive, better do it.”
