CHASKA, Minn. – They are the anti-bomber pairing.
And they’re hope for the diminutive men of golf.
Folks wanting to see gargantuan drives won’t be following Tim Clark and Corey Pavin, who will go off together at 12:42 local time in the final round, which means they’ll miss a nice shot-shaping show. Short-knockers Clark and Pavin are having good weeks on the longest major championship layout in history. They started the round tied for 13th at 1-under par but will be challenged with Sunday's setup. The overnight rain will make the course play soft and even longer.
Clark is 73rd in driving distance this week among the 79 players teeing it up Sunday, averaging 274.2 yards per drive. Pavin is 77th, averaging 267.8 yards.
Neither is large of physical stature, with Clark standing 5 foot 7 and Pavin 5 foot 9.
