I’ll admit I wasn’t paying attention this morning only to see Robert Karlsson had put up a 62 on the newly redone Wentworth course. What’s more impressive is that he had made it home to Monaco, before he found out he had actually made the cut, then returned and fired a course record.
More impressive still, is how few players actually got close to him. Seung-yul Noh had a 66, Chris Wood threw up a 67, and there were 4 other players with a 68 or 69. That’s only 6 players who stayed within 7 shots of Robert Karlsson.
In relation to the field, Karlsson’s round will probably be the best all year, topping Rory McIlroy’s final round at Quail Hollow and Jim Herman’s first in the Nationwide Tour’s Moonah Classic. It’s not often that a player goes from around 850-1 to win to +375 in one round of golf.
Well done, Robert.
