Tiger Woods rediscovers magic at Players Championship

Bale Tiger Woods is the greatest of all-time

You would hardly know it based on his positive reaction after he tied for 11th at the Players Championship, shooting a final-round 69 after earlier being in a tie for second place behind eventual victor Webb Simpson.

Simpson took home $1.98 million for his victory; only the U.S. Open pays more.

"He was basically back to square one after spending thousands of hours perfecting a perfectly fine method, " Scott said of Simpson.

His last win on the PGA Tour came on October 20, 2013 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Simpson cruised to victory on Sunday, the 2012 U.S. Open champion posting a one-over-par 73 for his fifth PGA Tour victory on Mother's Day.

However, he was in the thick of things at Sawgrass from the start of the event.

No player on the PGA Tour has lost a tournament when leading by seven going into the final round. Sweden's Alex Noren was the lone exception, as his 66 matched that of Patrick Cantlay, Chesson Hadley, Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar, and Simpson. Simpson knew this, and he played like it all day. Lee asked. Told that Simpson was 19 under, Lee digested that and responded, "That's an impressive three rounds, I think". Meanwhile, Cantlay finished Friday tied for second, along with Danny Lee and Schwartzel, at 10-under.

It was just like the halcyon days of a previous era as Tiger Woods carded his best ever score at TPC Sawgrass, a seven-under-par 65, in the third round of the Players Championship on Saturday.

Unfortunately, a severe leg injury slowed Pennington's pace and put her out of action for over a year and a half. Nunes threw her hands up in celebration as she earned the TKO stoppage at 2:36 into the fifth and final round.

It was a reasonable week for Europeans Tommy Fleetwood and Ian Poulter, who finished tied for seventh and 11th respectively, although I really don't know what to say about Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy.

Justin Thomas also has cause for celebration going into Memorial after becoming the 21st different golfer to become world No. 1 following his joint-11th finish at the Players.

Oh, and you know that annoying, worn-out one-liner that's always been muttered on every single golf course across the world?

But like Saturday, when he was 8 under through 12 holes, the round stalled at the par-4 14th and this time was compounded by a tee shot into the water at the par-3 17th. Some of his play was vintage Tiger.

Woods shot a 3-under 69 in the final round and tied for 11th at 11-under 277. He was first in the field in driving accuracy, and Sunday was the first time he hit fewer than 14 greens in regulation in any round.

Horschel is back to defend his title on the new circuit, along with recent Byron Nelson winners Sergio Garcia (2016), Steven Bowditch (2015), Brendon Todd (2014), and Sang-moon Bae (2013). "And he may be walking off with a third Players Championship".

The Trinity Forest course was designed in part by two-time Masters champion Ben Crenshaw, and there are no trees on the circuit despite its name. I'm comfortable on the golf course.

The Trinity Forest Golf Club course plays 7,450 yards long and is a par 72. "I hit probably three of the best long irons I've hit all week". He also is an Ironman triathlete and certified triathlon coach.
