Tiger Woods shoots 65, his lowest score at TPC Sawgrass

Rory McIlroy

Woods, a two-time Players victor, started the day a whopping 14 shots back of overnight leader Webb Simpson (15 under). Woods' laments about missed opportunities, errant irons and an inability to convert on the greens may as well have been plucked from the Quail Hollow transcripts. It was nice to see a few putts go in.

Woods hit 78.6 percent of the fairways and 83.3 percent of greens to give his putter a chance to make things happen, and he took advantage of most of his birdie looks until late in the round.

It was also the lowest score in Woods' 66 career trips around the Stadium course, where he won in 2001 and 2013.

A nine-under 63 saw Simpson create the biggest halfway lead in the tournament's history and put the American on course for his first PGA Tour win in five years.

AT&T calls paying Trump lawyer Michael Cohen 'a big mistake'
The payment to Clifford was the first known activity involving Essential Consultants, a shell company incorporated in DE by Cohen. AT&T declined to comment on the documents, which were provided to The Post anonymously, but did not challenge their authenticity.

Mickelson wore a long-sleeved shirt with buttons - not much different from the shirt that drew plenty of attention during his practice round with Tiger Woods on the day before the Masters - and was going along fine until a 41 on the back nine. "I felt like I was just being stubborn, trying to hit driver where there's no point in hitting drive".

"I'd like to have two more rounds in the 60s and see where that leaves me after 72 holes because I think the course is going to firm up; I don't think (officials) want 25 under winning the tournament".

The 14-time major champion fired a seven-under 65 in Saturday's third round of the 2018 Players Championship to skyrocket up the leaderboard in the PGA Tour's so-called "fifth major". He blasted to 8 feet but couldn't convert. "He attacks the golf course, he's very powerful off the tee". "Obviously his putting kind of speaks for itself, but in that 10- to 20-foot range, he's just so solid, and he rolled in some really nice putts today". Woods didn't disappoint him. "It's 90 degrees, but I can assure you I had some goose bumps and shivers at times out there".

Indeed, Spieth matched Woods' seven-under 65 as he twice hit three birdies in a row and managed nine in total. - Rory McIlroy didn't break par until his fourth time at The Players Championship.

He described the existing accord as an "embarrassment" to the United States that did nothing to contain Iran's nuclear ambitions. A number of French companies, including Airbus, Renault and Peugeot, have signed agreements with Iran since the nuclear deal.

"I think I was ideal inside of 12, 15". "I started to feel really comfortable in my setup".
