On moving day the Road Hole proved to be the ultimate rally killer. Bernhard Langer came to the 17th having made seven birdies against no bogeys, then took a 5 from the left rough. When Thomas Bj�rn vroomed up to the Road Hole he was only five back of Woods and one of three players in double-digit red numbers. Bj�rn's approach limped to the front of the green, and he three-putted from 75 feet.
Woods, too, three-putted for bogey on Saturday, and he had his troubles with the Road Hole again during the final round. After a perfect drive he got too cute with a punch and run, curling the shot just short of the bunker. Instead of trying one of his patented flop shots, Woods cried uncle and putted around the bunker, away from the pin. He accepted his bogey with a shrug. Even the game's best player knows when he has met his match.
