ATLANTA – Twice within the span of 10 minutes on Saturday afternoon, a chorus of cheers echoed through the trees at East Lake as Aaron Baddeley and Dustin Johnson made eagles.
Baddeley’s came first when he holed a shot from 131 yards at the par-4 fourth hole. It moved the Presidents Cup hopeful to 2 under for the day and into the logjam at 5 under, just three strokes off the lead.
Dustin Johnson followed with another at the par-5 ninth where he holed a bunker shot for the 3. That briefly took him to 3 under for the day but he bogeyed the 10th hole, missing a 4-footer for par, so he’s tied for 22nd at 1 over.
There eagles were the third and fourth of the week.
