Korda shared an adorable picture on her story of two dogs enjoying the lovely weather. Her dog Charlie DelPrete, a lovely goldendoodle, is sitting on a blanket with JT’s dog Franklin. She wrote, “2 best dood friends enjoying the cooler temperature.”

JT reposted the story and jokingly wrote, “(Jessica’s) second career is a dog sitting service.” Well, that’s not a career any dog-lover would object to, is it?

On top of the leaderboard is defending champion Viktor Hovland who has a 2 stroke advantage leading into the deciding day. He is 19-under par, above Talor Gooch. If all plays out well, then we might see a winner from one of these three golfers. However, it’s never sensible to undermine the rest of the competitors, waiting for their opportunity to rise to the top.
