Woods certain he'll win again

Woods certain he'll win again

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

Many consider The Players Championship as the fifth major on tour.

Still, there were moments where it could have come unraveled.

At making a birdie. Everything felt good. I had control, I was hitting it high, low, right, left, didn't matter what it was. But the numbers tell the whole story of Sunday for somebody who had a touchdown lead coming in. He holed a 100-foot bunker shot for eagle. Simpson set a record for the largest margin through three rounds.

"It's been a tough few months for my mom, my brothers and sisters", Simpson said as his voice began to crack. It was still hard, but I'm just really thankful to get it done.

"The good thing about Webb is he's played well, he doesn't have to do too much out there, he has to keep it in front of him", Day said.

Simpson struggled somewhat in playing the 14th through the 16th in one-over. Having not won on the PGA Tour since 2013 in Las Vegas, he'd gone through extreme depths trying to figure out his putting when, in 2016, the U.S. Golf Association eliminated the anchored stroke he'd used since his freshman year of college.

Simpson uses a 44 inch long Odyssey's Tank Cruiser V Line putter, resting the grip of the putter against his forearm in a similar fashion to fellow American, Matt Kuchar. This week, he was elite. This helped him rank 32nd in Strokes Gained Off The Tee (1.466).

There's a attractive irony in that. "I want to do it for a really, really long time, because that means I'm playing better than everybody else for an extended period of time". And I wanted to do this for my mom. "This was for her".

It's huge. Since winning the 2012 U.S. Open, Simpson has just one victory and hasn't finished inside the top 10 in a major.

Simpson led by five shots entering the third round. He stayed solid throughout the tournament and never looked like he was going to give up the lead. In that sense, this one has to be at least as satisfying if not more so. And then he found what Simpson calls the “missing link, ” provided by former Players champion Tim Clark.

If there was any disappointment, Woods said, it was in getting himself to eight-under through 12 but settling for a seven-under round. Walker, who struggled all of previous year with Lyme disease, had his best finish since he won the 2016 PGA Championship. FedExCup leader: Justin Thomas.

Jordan Spieth, his playing partner Sunday, said: "He'll win sometime soon enough". He also had one of the more freakish finishes you'll ever see. The changes I made after LA; the way I played at Honda and how I played at Valspar and Bay Hill... Once it was announced last week he was going to play, the thoughts of him returning to the winners' circle started to come.

"I'm not that far off from winning golf tournaments, " Woods said, delivering his boldest statement of this comeback.

"I didn't play particularly well the first couple of days, but I turned it around this weekend".

"I hit it so good", Woods said at the conclusion of Sunday. Mickelson actually putted well, but every other part of his game was atrocious. "I didn't know. But now I feel like I've got my playing feels and I'm playing tournament golf and I've got it". The Stadium course at TPC at Sawgrass in Ponte Verde, Florida.
