Tim Clark’s had a rough go of things since he shut it down and had elbow surgery last summer. The 2010 Players Championship winner has only made one cut in six starts this season, but his luck could be changing after a 2-under 70 that left him just five shots back of the leaders.
He has this shot on the par-4 seventh to thank for shaving a couple strokes off his scorecard on Friday. After finding a squirrely lie on the hole, Clark tried to hack the ball out and onto the green, only to watch the ball bounce short and roll right into the cup for the only eagle of the day on the hole.
That’s what you call living right, friends. After everything Clark’s been through recently, it’s nice to see something go his way for the first time in a while.
