Gary Woodland, who entered into the final round with having a one-shot lead with him, birdied two of his first three holes and, despite having a bogey at the 9th. Still led the tournament by two shots and making the turn in the championship. Whereas, the competitor Brooks Koepka was four-under through five holes but failed to birdie the par-5 6th from a greenside bunker and missed a six-foot putt for birdie at the 7th to trail by two going to the bogey 9 back.
