The Players Championship
Tiger Woods has added The Players Championship to his schedule, another indication that he is getting back to a normal golf season.
Martin Kaymer produced one of the most unlikely pars on the 17th green at the TPC Sawgrass without ever going in the water. It carried him to a one-shot victory Sunday in The Players Championship that was emotional in so many ways.
The PGA Tour rescinded the two-shot penalty given to Justin Rose before his final round Sunday in The Players Championship, changing its mind to say sophisticated TV technology was the only way to determine the violation.
Four players have a chance to replace Woods atop the world ranking — Adam Scott, Henrik Stenson, Bubba Watson and Matt Kuchar — at The Players Championship. Watson, in his first tournament since winning the Masters, was the only one to break 70 on a day built for low scoring.
Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia are part of a three-way tie for the lead at The Players Championship, both going after golf’s richest prize without the pleasure of being in the same group for the final round at the TPC Sawgrass.
Vijay Singh sued the PGA Tour on Wednesday for exposing him to “public humiliation and ridicule” during a 12-week investigation into his use of deer antler spray that ended last week when the tour dropped its case against him.
One night after making his red carpet debut in New York, Tiger Woods was on a golf course that hasn’t treated him very well over the years.
With so much talk about quitting in the middle of a round, Tiger Woods brings his own perspective. If he had not walked off the course in the middle of the final round at Doral last year, he might not have gone on to win three times on the PGA Tour.
