Hard 'N Fast: Webb Simpson, not Tiger Woods, makes a comeback

Tiger Woods made a furious charge up the leaderboard Saturday

For Simpson, THE PLAYERS victory came almost six years after his U.S. Open title, and some will say it's his second major.

The Players Championship might have ended in disappointment for Tiger Woods, but the 14-time major victor believes he is close to finally winning a tournament again.

- Tiger Woods found himself 14 shots out of first place after making the cut on the number in The Players Championship.

What ended that two-and-a-half-year stretch was a putting lesson from South African two-time PGA Tour victor Tim Clark.

Woods ran off six birdies through 12 holes in the final round.

Woods has yet to tell us when he will next be competing, but Jack Nicklaus' Memorial event in Dublin, Ohio - starting on 31 May - would seem the logical choice in the build-up to next month's US Open. It's just his seventh top-12 finish ever at this tournament.

On Saturday, Simpson added to his lead by posting a 68, leaving him with a seven-shot edge over Lee heading into the final round.

Tiger Woods obviously wasn't the only one chasing Webb Simpson on Sunday afternoon. And this year I think I'm in the top 10.

Woods hit his worst shot of the day on the par-3 17th hole, where his tee shot was woefully short and took a dip in the lake.

At the par-5 second, Poulter chipped in his fourth shot from 0 yards off the green, scoring a birdie for the hole.

That said, the design inclination of the flagship smartphone is more towards the recently Huawei P20 , rather than the Honor 9 . Connectivity options include Bluetooth v4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, 4G VoLTE, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Koepka also recorded just the second albatross in tournament history, when he one-hopped his second shot into the cup on the par-five 16th.

Webb Simpson had three great rounds and at times was 20 under par and had a huge lead.

After a par at the 13th, Tiger came to the tee at the 481-yard, par-4 14th, the longest par-4 at TPC Sawgrass, and absolutely destroyed his golf ball, blasting it 354 yards down the fairway.

When you pick up more than nine strokes on the field for the week in strokes gained/putting, it's easy to key in on your putter as the club that helped you win the tournament.

Simpson burst onto the leaderboard during the second round Friday, when he shot 9-under-par 63 to tie the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course record.

For Jordan Spieth, it ended with a kick in the teeth as he signed off with a quadruple-bogey 8.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Stephan Jaeger birdied the final two holes for his second straight 7-under 64 and a three-stroke victory in the Web.com Tour's Knoxville Open.

He followed that up with a 69 on Sunday to end at -11 and tied-11th for the tournament. "I thought about him all day", Simpson said.

Charl Schwartzel, Jimmy Walker and Xander Schauffele finished in a tie for 2 at 14 under, while a pair of Jasons- Day and Dufner-were a stroke further back in a tie for 5. So I call certain guys who maybe have struggled and have tried out different putters. With the drop of the final putt, plenty of middle-aged men gave loud cheers from their sofas and bar stools saying, "Take that, ruling bodies".

Webb Simpson celebrates with his wife Dowd on the 18th green after winning THE PLAYERS Championship on May 13, 2018 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
