Tiger Woods thrills fans with career round at The Players

  • Tiger Woods finally delivers the round everyone wanted to see

Tiger Woods barely made the cut on Friday afternoon as a handful of golfers slid from 2 under back to 1 under, but he made the most of that opportunity on Saturday as he scared the course record at TPC Sawgrass in the third round of the 2018 Players Championship.

Woods, a 79-times victor on the PGA Tour, used his irons with precision and wielded a hot putter to record his lowest numerical score on the PGA Tour since 2015.

"I've had a pretty poor year, and to be in an environment like that, it really gets the juices flowing", Hughes said after shooting 68. An incredible tee shot on the course's famed par-3 17th hole set up this short birdie putt late in his round.

Of course, that was all two hours before leader Webb Simpson even teed off, but Woods is still on the front page of the leaderboard through at least the first subsequent three hours.

"I hit a lot of good shots and it was nice to see some go in", said the 14-time major champion.

Tiger Woods produced his best round since returning to PGA Tour action in January as he lit up the third day of The Players Championship. "To be eight under through 12, realistically I could have got a couple more out of it and got to 10 for the day, but I will take it".

"Today I felt more comfortable with my overall warm-up. I hit a lot of good, quality shots".

"It's just a matter of playing and executing and putting the shots together", he said. Eventually, I'll put all of the pieces together, and today for the most part I did that.

Caddie Joe LaCava was not surprised by the quality of his boss's iron game.

"It's one round so you don't want to get too far ahead of yourself". He birdied four of the first five holes, as well as at 7 and 9. I don't make birdie at 16.
