Tiger’s dropped another shot, this time at the par-three 4th, unable to get up and down from sand. He’s back to +1. A fast start by Ryan Palmer, meanwhile: birdies at 2, 4, 7 and 8, and at -4 he’s one shot off Hoffman and Rose’s lead. And a strong showing already from the talented young Brooks Koepka, who already has one victory on the PGA Tour this season, at the Tiger-bothering Phoenix Open. He’s birdied 3, 5 and 6. A bogey at 4, and he’s -2. An outside shout for the title? Maybe not quite yet, but he could be a good each-way shout, along with Russell Henley and Bill Haas (the latter having just dropped a shot up the last, settling for a three-under 69).
