4th hole has some of Mackenzie's loveliest bunkering. Lotsa talk on the tee. 3 layup, Bubba blows driver into forest.

The gorgeous 6th green. Three eagle putts coming. (Bubba is fighting his swing, which is a blast to watch.)

Maybe my favorite green complex there is, the 13th. All 4 guys birdied this one, Love-Watney are still 2-up.

Capt. Love at 15. I'm standing one foot from the edge of the ocean.
