PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- With two of the three holes in the Bear Trap -- Nos. 15, 16 and 17 -- playing as two of the more difficult holes on the golf course this week, they could certainly come into play down the stretch here in the final round.
On big key to leader Rory McIlroy’s success here this week: He’s played those holes in a combined 3 under with three birdies and no bogeys. Here’s a look at how the rest of the players in contention and the field as a whole have played those holes through the first three rounds.
