Putts Per GIR (4).
"Fred's performance yesterday was one for the ages," said Dan Murphy, Bridgestone

of precision and making everything he looks at on the greens, there may not be a
more exciting player in all of golf. We are thrilled that Fred is in the hunt for
the Charles Schwab Cup. We're eager to see what he has in store next at the Charles
Schwab Cup Championship in two weeks, at Harding Park."
