Phil made the only decision on 18 that brought double bogey into play with his attempt to hit it on the green with is second shot at 18. The best way to describe is through his own words after the round where he called himself an "idiot".
Phil was horrible with his driver today but kept getting lucky with good enough lies to be able to advance the ball into good and sometimes even great positions. The one time he got a horrendous lie it was because he tried to get too much out of a fairway bunker shot and instead of recovering back to the fairway he put himself into a worse position in the rough.
Kudos to Ogilvy, he made a tremendously clutch chip shot on 17 and a great up and down on 18 after getting a horrible break by his ball rolling into a sand filled divot in the 18 fairway.
