My goodness Zach Johnson is making Firestone CC look like his home course, at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational!!!

After a 3 under par round of 67 yesterday Zach fires a 5 under par 65 today. Wow he did it the hard way with 4 birdies on the front side and 2 bogeys for a 2 under par 33.

He then heads to the back side and proceeds to reel of 4 birds and one bogey for a 32. If he could get on the birdie train Sunday and avoid those lousy bogies he WILL be the guy to beat.

I really did tell my wife that I thought Zach had a solid chance this week.

Thomas Pieters, the guy from Antwerp Belgium, was five under thru 8 holes today.

He bogeyed #9 for a 4 under par 31 on the front nine.

He started off great on the back with a birdie on 10 and a par on 11 and 12, then a bogey, bogey, par, birdie, bogey, birdie for an even par 35.

That left him -4 under for the day and in a tie for 1st place. It’s really going to be fun watching Zach and the crazy Belgium in the final group.

Zach stay away from the bogies and Thomas just get a little wild and we are going to have a horse race to the finish!!

I’m going all the way down to the 3 way tie for fifth place and Adam Hadwin, Charley Hoffman, & Rory McIlroy are all sitting 3 strokes out of the lead.

I have to say that if any of these guys can catch the leader it has to be Rory.

He really needs to show us all that he can win without JP on the bag.

He has already admitted that he is keeping his own yardage book and double checking everything his temporary caddy is telling him.

I think that is good because then there is no disputing who is right or who is wrong.

The way Firestone is playing I really don’t think that you can gain more than 3 strokes in the final round unless the leaders completely fall apart.

The way they have played I can’t see that happening. Get ready for some kind of finish!
