Two of the golfers we were following this week have missed the cut, but Tiger Woods and Ryan Moore are still going strong. Both players found themselves a ways back going into the weekend and likely needed low rounds today to have a chance tomorrow. Did they get the scores they needed? Keep reading to find out how Moore and Tiger fared on Day 3 of the 2019 Memorial Tournament, and what their odds are going into the final round on Sunday.
The Memorial Tournament Favorites
Rory missed the cut this week, despite starting the tournament as the clear favorite.
Tiger shot a two under par 70 today, which is the same score he shot on the first day of the tournament. He finds himself 11 shots back of leader Martin Kaymer. SugarHouse puts his odds going into the final day at +500000. The deficit is nearly insurmountable, as Tiger would need to shoot an extremely low round and hope everyone ahead of him falters. However, he can certainly still finish strong and chalk up another top 10. Tiger looks to be playing solid, if unspectacular golf going into the U.S. Open, which will be held at Pebble Beach in 2 weeks time. He’ll likely be one of the favorites for that event, as well.
The Memorial Tournament Underdogs
Harold Varner III
Varner III missed the cut on Friday.
Ryan Moore was the leader after Day 1 with a 65. He faltered on Friday, shooting a three over par 75. Moore shot another 75 on Saturday, leaving him stuck in the middle of the pack. He’ll have an early tee time tomorrow, and he’ll likely be happy to play a respectable round and move onto the next tournament. A bit disappointing after initially leading the tournament. A good round on Sunday could see him finish in the top 25 places, which would arguably make this week a success overall for Moore. This almost goes without saying, but he’s so far back that SugarHouse is not taking bets on him winning the tournament.
