Goosen birdies No. 7
Retief Goosen rolls in a long putt for birdie on the par-4 seventh hole.
Retief Goosen is nine holes into what could become the low round of the tournament so far. He’s just rolled in three straight birdie putts to make the turn in 4 under.
The quiet South African is 3 under for the tournament, which is two behind Jim Furyk and Luke Donald. To see Goosen play well at East Lake should come as no surprise, though – he won THE TOUR Championship is 2004.
Goosen trailed Tiger Woods and Jay Haas by four strokes entering the final round that year. He fired a 64 on Sunday and ended up beating Woods by four.
Goosen has played 21 rounds East Lake and he’s broken par 13 times. Looks like he’ll make it 14 on Friday.
