    Because (a) putting is hard, and often quite variable; and (b) he *probably* fell in love with a line and didn’t quite match his speed to that line.

    I’m willing to give him a pass after that eagle putt at 16, as part of coming back from 3-down through 8, to snatch a stalemate from the jaws of defeat.

    At the end of the day, he played both sessions and scored a total of a half point, eagle putt on 16 notwithstanding. On a day that was a resounding success for the US team, the only player who did worse than JT was Jordan Speith.

    Eh. Whatever. I’ll focus on the (many) US silver linings, rather than some small’ish cloud.

    It seems to me that Justin and Jon Rahm have more putts lip out than any players on tour. I'm with Tripping on JT leaving that putt short. I believe he fell in love with reading the line and didn't think speed just before he struck the putt(Jack's tip about putting).
