A lot has happened in a 5 years given Tiger Woods dejected a hopes and dreams of Sergio Garcia on a approach to winning his second Players Championship. Woods has had 4 behind surgeries, missed a few full seasons, a few half-seasons, and Sergio has bagged that fugitive vital championship.
But Saturday during TPC Sawgrass was a reversion opening to a some-more widespread era. Woods, who scuffled to make a Players cut right on a number, changed some 60 spots adult a leaderboard with a turn of a day. He finished with a 7-under 65 that he characterized as a top probable measure he could have posted given a approach he was playing. And he’s not wrong, as it felt like this was a course-record violation march. It could have been a 10-under 62.
The Players is golf’s biggest festival
The 65 is good adequate for a late Sunday tee time, that is a thespian annulment from creation a cut on a number. He will play with Jordan Spieth, going off a initial tee during 2:05 p.m. ET.
