4, I hit driver, ball was in a divot and hit a 4-iron to about four feet, one of the best shots of the day.

No. 5, I hit a hybrid probably to about 25 feet, two-putt.

No. 6, I hit a driver and a 3-wood, almost pin high, or just a little short left of the pin. Was probably about three yards off the green. I putted it up to about four feet and made that for birdie.
