Holmes, Stanley lead Players after 54 holes, Garcia four back

Kyle Stanley finished with birdies on Nos. "A lot of golf to be played around this golf course, and as we've seen the last two days, you can easily make a mistake around this track".

"Yeah, the guy who plays the best wins, for sure", Pat Perez said. "That enough is a lot of motivation".

J.B. Holmes watches his shot from the 15th tee during the third round of The Players Championship golf tournament Saturday, May 13, 2017, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Rory McIlroy made it to the weekend but it will be results of a different sort on Monday that will be more significant. Still searching for his first win on USA soil, Oosthuizen should bounce back with a good round Sunday. For another, none of them finished better than 30th.

"It doesn't matter what your golf game looks like".

Oosthuizen is often lauded for having one of the sweetest swings in the game, albeit one that has yielded just a single PGA Tour title, the 2010 Open Championship.

Kim becomes the second player from South Korea to win The Players Championship, joining K.J. Choi in 2011. Among that group, he would join Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods as those who claimed victories at St. Andrews.

All that could stop him was the final two holes, when Kim had a two-shot lead and faced a tee shot to an island green, and then a closing hole with water all the way down the left side. "But for the most part, not really".

At least those players made the cut.




Stanley has one PGA Tour win, the 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open.

"I would have liked to have pushed a little bit more at the end there, " said Oosthuizen, 36, an eight-time victor on the European Tour. Stanley said he would try to draw from the experience from that victory. "I don't know what the best way to describe the golf course is". "I'm looking forward to working hard from now on".

On a day when most of the big names failed to make a move, U.S. Masters champion Sergio Garcia was a notable exception, carding 67 to trail the leaders by four strokes.

"I just tried to focus on giving myself chances". "You need to keep it in the fairway, and I think by tomorrow the greens are going to be nice and firm". He followed that with a birdie on the 17th, and then holed a long par putt from just off the 18th green.

Oosthuizen and his sweet swing were a good fit in any conditions at the TPC Sawgrass, and he managed to play bogey-free and finish with a birdie on the par-5 ninth. 8 and 9, his final two holes. Holmes is playing in his 11th Players Championship. He took a penalty drop, and then hit wedge over the trees and almost holed it, tapping in for bogey. Singh, who was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2006, is making his 24th start in The Players, highlighted by four top 10s. Johnson needed 31 and 29 putts, respectively, in the first two rounds.

World No.11 Scott, the 2004 Players victor, finished six back of the lead at three under in a share of 13th place, while countryman and defending champion Jason Day let a hot start slip away.

Four shots back is Canadian David Hearn, who shot a three-under 69 earlier in the day. Vijay Sigh sits in fourth place after a 68. The Kentucky native needed just 25 total putts and posted 1.700 putts per GIR and 4.275 SG: Putting, pacing the field in both of the latter stats. May.

CHARITABLE DEEDS: For the third year, Horschel has pledged to raise funds during the tournament to support the Feeding Northeast Florida Food Bank. His eagle putt was 14 feet, 9 inches.
