Only one Frenchman had ever won a major championship -- Arnaud Massy at the 1907 British Open -- and it looks like that won’t change with Gregory Havret making a par on the last hole.
Needing to make a birdie from just inside 10 feet to pull even with leader Graeme McDowell, Havret badly pulled his putt, which never came close to touching the hole. He finished with a 1-over 72.
Meanwhile, Havret’s playing partner, Tiger Woods, also missed a birdie putt at the last. Woods began the day in contention but quickly shot himself out of it with four bogeys in his first eight holes. He ended the day hitting just half his greens and coming up short on his birdie putt for a 4-over 75 to finish the week at 3 over. -- Brian Wacker
