Pat Perez surges up leaderboard as Rory McIlroy stalls at Sawgrass

McIlroy, 28, was sidelined with a rib injury earlier this year and said his back had been troubling him ahead of the Players Championship, with an MRI scan to follow on Monday.

"But, yeah, there's so many unknowns because we don't even know, unless you get an image taken of it and you know exactly what's going on you don't know, so just making sure that the tissue around it is as loose as it possibly can be and at least the warm weather helps keep it not stiffened up". It was gusting quite a bit so it was hard to pick the clubs but I managed to play very nicely, hit a lot of fairways, hit a lot of greens for the conditions and made some really good putts. Things got interesting down the stretch, though, as Holmes' final four tee shots weren't just off the fairway - they were off the map. He won the event in 2014 and while he may be required to rest a "muscle strain", he admitted the "most important thing" is to be fit for June's US Open.

He finished with a 73 and is now six shots behind leaders William McGirt and Mackenzie Hughes, who each finished with a five-under 67.

Stenson bogeyed two of the last four holes to slip to level par alongside Fowler, who was three under for the day and the tournament until his ball lodged in a tree at the last and he then pulled his approach into water as he signed off with a frustrating triple-bogey seven.

Singh would surpass the 52-year-old Sam Snead as the oldest victor in PGA Tour history with his first victory since 2008.

Korean officials meet in attempt to repair ties
The U.S. will not engage in talks with North Korea until it ceases its nuclear and missile tests, U.S. Although he has sometimes criticized the THAAD deployment, Moon has not said he will remove it.

The ban was subsequently rescinded when the World Anti-Doping Agency said it no longer considered use of the spray to be a doping violation without a positive test but Singh filed a lawsuit in NY claiming the Tour's actions left him "humiliated, ashamed, ridiculed, scorned and emotionally distraught".

England's Ian Poulter was a shot further back as he looked to capitalise on retaining his PGA Tour card after fellow professional Brian Gay alerted officials to a discrepancy in the points structure used for players competing on major medical extensions. "We just hope it's not the same thing, the joint and the rib".

He came up short in both categories with 155 FedEx Cup points and 317,010 dollars (£245,991), but Gay - who was also playing on a medical exemption after back problems - came to the rescue by discovering a difference between the way points were allotted this season compared to a year ago.

But the four-time major victor then bogeyed the fifth.

Poulter defied the windy conditions at Sawgrass to card 17 pars and a solitary birdie in a third round of 71 which kept him firmly in contention for a first victory since 2012.
