McGirt, Hughes lead Players after Scott stumbles

Rita Gibson | 15 May, 2017, 00:18

Jason Day opened with a 63 during the 2016 Players Championship and never looked back for the first wire-to-wire win in 33 years at TPC Sawgrass.

Day, who won the Players by four shots a year ago, lamented a bad break at the par-three 13th hole that resulted in a double-bogey five, cruelling his fight-back in the third round.

Jon Rahm, Garcia's fellow Spanish countryman and considered by most to be the next big star from that golf-mad country, worked his way near the lead with a 32-foot birdie putt at No. 18, the second-longest of the day at the closing hole.

The pin at the par-4 12th hole will be back-left, with the hole playing 291 yards to the hole, with the intention of enticing players to go for the green in two shots.

"It was just a slight mis-hit and the ball started cutting on the wind".

Making his first start since claiming a maiden major title at Augusta National, Garcia was four over par for his first six holes of the week and was on the same mark before following a birdie on the 16th by recording a hole-in-one on the famous "island green" 17th to salvage an opening 73. Told that no one had made eagle on both par 5s on the back nine in the opening round, McGirt didn't have an answer.

Anirban hit three shots into the water and made a 10 on the par-4 18th hole.

"It doesn't matter whether you're leading (or not) on the first day". And, of course, we've seen the heartbreak that players such as Sean O'Hair and Len Mattiace have suffered on the island green. He has missed the cut twice and tied for 43rd twice in four starts, and has shot everything from 65 in the second round previous year to 81 in the second round in 2014. They were only five behind when they finished, and they could sense that because of steamy weather and swaying pines that nobody was going to get too far away from him. He said the winds were gusting to 20 miles per hour at times, which did challenge him and his play.

Regardless, the apparent success of the launch and the steady pace of firings will only heighten tensions in the region. Trump will likely urge Beijing to use its leverage over Pyongyang to punish it for this latest provocation.

"I've definitely been freer this week playing golf than I have in the last month, and I think it shows on the course", Poulter said.

Golf around the world has largely taken the week off, just like during the Masters. "If I keep putting like that, I'm going to be right there on Sunday".

Members have from April 1st 2017 to the 30th September 2017, to score that all important Hole In One.

It gets really jammed behind that group.

McGirt enjoyed a one-shot lead over compatriot JB Holmes, with Italy's Francesco Molinari and former Open champion Louis Oosthuizen carding matching rounds of 69.

Johnston, victor of the African Amateur Championship at Leopard Creek earlier in the year, signed for a one-under 70 to sit joint-eighth as Englishman Nicholas Poppleton set the pace with an impressive 67.

Day trailed by three shots after three bogeys in his final four holes, with Phil Mickelson also two-under. 6, 8 and 9 after his tee shots found the rough. It's obviously not a hundred percent, but it's good enough to get myself around here for the next couple of days. (AP) - J.B. Holmes defied conventional wisdom on a most unconventional course, walking anything but the straight and narrow at the TPC Sawgrass until he wound up in a most unlikely place Saturday in The Players Championship.

"I didn't have any other shot", he said. At least Sergio surged to 5-under in Round 3.
