Simpson cruises to victory at Players Championship

Tiger Woods made a furious charge up the leaderboard Saturday

Tiger Woods made a furious charge up the leaderboard Saturday

Woods gave himself 25 (!) looks a birdie inside of 20 feet over the final 36 holes.

"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".

Given he hadn't won anywhere for five years, it would have been surprising if Simpson hadn't been tense, and bogeys at the 8th and 10th suggested as much.

It had been 106 starts since his last win. "I thought about him all day", Simpson said.

"There's so many people that are part of the puzzle".

"This weekend I hung in there to get it done". This has been made to look easy with scoring well above average as a whole.

Schwartzel, Walker and Schauffele, last year's Rookie of the Year, each shot 67 in the final round, but they were nothing but an afterthought.

Simpson was steady with pars at the first six holes before the Golfing Gods rewarded him with a birdie from 33-feet at the seventh.

The former world no.1 bogeyed the 14th before a double-bogey damaged his final round even further after he found the water with his tee shot.

Thomas tied for 11th at the Players Championship. He wound up tied for 11th at 11 under.

He maintained that form in the final round, showing flashes of the man that won the Players in 2001 and 2013, coming within four shots of leader Webb Simpson.

Koepka had already carded five birdies when he holed his second shot with a six iron from 208 yards on the par-five 16th and followed that with another two on the next on his way to a nine-under-par 63.

He has been knocking on the door for some time, as has Lorenza-Vera, who last week finished runner-up with Romain Wattel in the GolfSixes at St Albans. "Sometimes when you're off for four months, you come back and need to play a little bit and get some rhythm".

The North Carolina native was never headed since sharing the lead on day one and then storming five shots clear of his rivals on day two in shooting a course record-equalling 63. I was trying to fire at every flag.

Officials were able to identify the bodies by matching DNA which had been taken from family members of the deceased. Libyan security forces discovered the bodies in October past year after the city was recaptured from IS militants.

"It means everything to me". "You'd think leading by seven is great, but it's hard to stay motivated to keep doing what you've been doing".

The 42-year-old tapped in for birdie and enjoyed a major slice of luck on the next after a wild tee shot hit a tree and bounced back to the edge of the fairway. "I hit a lot of quality shots and 65 was probably as high as I could have shot today, which was kind of nice", he said. "Not to really mis-hit a shot and only shoot three under par is just weird because I played much better than that".

"I don't think anybody today who wasn't there to witness it, and I don't think anybody before, will ever see that level of play again".

Johnson's 15-month reign came to an end after finishing tied for 17th at 10 under as US PGA Championship victor Thomas posted a final-round 66 to be 11 under alongside five others, including Tiger Woods.

Thomas, meanwhile, leapfrogged fellow American Dustin Johnson atop the golf rankings on Sunday. He has subsequently moved up to 80th in the Official World Golf Ranking and 48th in the FedEx Cup.

A tournament-record 69 players finished under par for the 72 holes. He is now up to 80th, with a stated aim of making it to the last World Golf Championships event at Firestone in August.
