When he rolled in a 10-foot eagle putt on the final hole for a 4-under 68, he straightened his back, stared defiantly at thousands of fans crammed into the horseshoe arena around the 18th green at Royal Liverpool and lightly pumped his fist. He went from being tied for the lead to six shots ahead of Rickie Fowler in an hour.

He appeared to mumble something to himself, but that was about it. No fiery outburst. No coarse language. No complaints about someone talking too loud, or being on the phone, or snapping a picture.
