All Player Alarms
Gary Woodland tossed together a 3-under-par 35-34=69 during Sunday's final round of the Workday Charity Open, concluding the week on 12-under 276 to share a piece of fifth place with Ian Poulter.
Woodland split just 4-of-14 fairways today en route to 11 greens in regulation. That sums up his week pretty well because his ball-striking has been sub-par by his lofty standards but he managed to score by leaning on the flat stick. He gained 3.054 strokes putting in round two, +2.932 strokes putting in round two, and another 2.364 today. The Kansas product was still better than the field from tee-to-green but it didn't feel like it to him, "That's as poorly as I've hit the golf ball in a long time. I've been fighting the golf swing really for a little bit now, so hopefully being here, I've got unbelievable practice facilities, I can get some stuff figured out the next couple days, but just shows I'm starting to become a complete player because the rest of my game, short game, putting was really good. Figure out the long swing, should be pretty good." He will have a few days to tune up the ball-striking before doing it all again at Jack's Place next week. This finish will be his sixth top 10 of the season and moves him inside the East Lake bubble (27th in the FedExCup standings).
