Holmes, Stanley share lead at Players Championship

Holmes, Stanley share lead at Players Championship

- Sergio Garcia arrived at TPC Sawgrass' signature 17th hole amid a languishing round and with mixed bag of success during his career at the par-3 island green.

Phil Mickelson decided on a novel approach to this year's Players Championship after missing the cut the past four years.

Overnight joint leader Oosthuizen also began his round with a bogey, and the South African was inconsistent all day as he dropped three further shots while making two birdies in an erratic 74. I'd rather just get a nice practice session.

Garcia seized his long awaited Major title by winning the U.S. Masters last month and now has his eyes set on the PGA Tour's flagship event where the Spaniard is five-under-par and just four shots off the lead.

The exception at The Players Championship is that Thursday offered a sneak preview into why the TPC Sawgrass is so entertaining to the fans, aggravating to the players and suspenseful for all until the crystal trophy is awarded.

Spieth, 2 under through three holes, fell back with a double bogey from the bunker on No. 1 in which he thought the sand was raked so poorly by someone ahead of him that he took his phone out of his bag and took a picture to show the rules staff.

"I felt like a little bit in chains on Thursday because of how overwhelming everything has been", Garcia said.

The 23-year-old shot a 77 and joined countrymen Rod Pampling (two over), Marc Leishman (four over) and Greg Chalmers (six over) in failing to make the cut.

"I went back at it begin on Friday and instead of maybe gradually building it up again, I hit balls for four or five hours on Friday and did the same on Saturday. A few distractions earlier this year kind of derailed that a little bit which is understandable, I had to be there with my mum, and now I'm ready to focus on my golf".

Add them up, and Scott had a 70.

McGirt's round didn't hit a bump until the back nine when he bogeyed the 10th.

Jason Day had the lead in the morning and looked as though he was determined to be the first back-to-back victor at The Players.

"Adam's shot wasn't that bad".

Which made everyone very excited, not least Twitter, which is live streaming every shot at the hole with a 360 degree camera. It has been like that every year.

It was another fast start for McGirt, who opened the Masters with a 69 to be second after the opening round before ultimately finishing tied for 22nd.

"Two good yardages, two good shots and two good putts", he said after becoming the sixth player to record two eagles on the back nine in the same round at The Players.
