Simpson extends lead as Woods, Spieth shoot 65

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla.

Woods started this year ranked 656th in the world.

Webb Simpson heard the roars echoing across TPC Sawgrass as Tiger Woods made a charge.

"I didn't play particularly well the first couple of days but I turned it around". "Especially today because I hit it so well, I had it going, but I just didn't close it out". He would make his final putt and receive a butt pat from his caddy who has helped turn Simpson's career around.

"It was tough, " Simpson said of the final round.

Woods would stall later in the round, dropping three shots. But he didn't, and Simpson regrouped with a birdie on 11 and a bunch of pars down the stretch. And this year I think I'm in the top 10.

The 14th hole had been somewhat of a nemesis for Woods this week, and it did him no favours on Sunday.

On the 18th, he was fine with his tee shot, but his aggressive second spilled over into the water on the left. He bogeyed the hole on Saturday.

The last test was to stay dry at the island green par 3 17th. Mickelson finished at 8 over par and missed the cut by 9 shots.

"I think I messed him up", Spieth said. I want to see him play rounds of golf under tournament conditions and expose himself exactly like he did this weekend. I had to draw it from the water.

He declared his intentions with a birdie at the first and then another at the fourth to get to 17-under. "It was unlucky there".

Lee did make a ranking of 34 in the world in 2015. He would have been pushing the top 50 with a second-place finish. Woods has also committed to play in the Open Championship at Carnoustie from July 19 to 22. He will move from 53rd to 48th in the FedEx Cup standings.

Tiger Woods has highlighted qualification for August's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational as one of his main goals for 2018. But Paul [caddie Paul Tesori] and I got in an argument on the golf course, and it was just frustration pent up in both of us. It is moving to Memphis, Tennessee, after this year. "But I got to do some work between now and then, hopefully put together one good event".

"He'll win sometime soon enough", said Spieth. "He's certainly playing well enough to do so". "His game, if I compare it to other guys that are winning golf tournaments that I'm playing with day-to-day, it's right up there".

Woods has yet to tell us when he will next be competing, but Jack Nicklaus' Memorial event in Dublin, Ohio - starting on 31 May - would seem the logical choice in the build-up to next month's US Open.

Woods had his best round on the Stadium Course with a 65 despite playing the final six holes in 1 over. That year, he shot his highest-score as a pro, a third-round 85.

Martin Laird finished joint-57th on one-under after closing with a 71 for four-under.

No one in PGA Tour history has ever lost with a seven-stroke lead entering the final round of a tournament, and Webb Simpson kept that record intact Sunday at The Players Championship. He has jumped from 1,199th in the world to 80th. I tried to focus a little bit more on the face, really just trying to control the face of the club and I felt like that really helped me to hit more shots rather than thinking more of my body. I did it the hard way in a sense, but it showed the quality of my long game today was much, much better.
