Gareth Bale: Tiger Woods is the greatest of all

Gareth Bale: Tiger Woods is the greatest of all

And while it has an all-star roster of champions, equally impressive is the list of players who haven't won. In the end, he had to settle for one of the great rounds of his life. - Rory McIlroy didn't break par at The Players Championship until his fourth start in the highly regarded PGA Tour event.

With a 6-under-par 66, Johnson posted his lowest score in 31 passes around the Stadium Course. Simpson made birdies at Nos. Of course, the leaders don't tee off for hours. He needed to go birdie-birdie for a 59. The Aussie won the Players in 2016, firing a course record 63 on his way to victory. It landed in the water. Much of that has to do with the water, just not any found on the golf course.

When asked whether he fancies a career in golf after football, Bale told the PGA Tour: 'I'd like to think so if I had the time to practise but obviously I know how hard golf is, and you see the professionals and how good they are and the practise they put in. "But coming in here, I kind of feel like I'm free-wheeling".

Schwartzel said he was getting the club too far behind, and he could never get it back on line.

Day's effort, in an event he captured two years ago, has ignited hopes of the 30-year-old Ohio-based golfer savouring success for a second straight event for the third time in his career.

The victor of 11 PGA Tour titles hasn't won this year and has four top-10s in 10 individual starts. Singh missed the putt and playing partner Billy Horschel charged over to an area near the green and berated the fan, saying "you don't do that ... that's not right".

"That's golf, unfortunately", Woods said. He was headed to the range, feeling no need to work on any one thing.

"I'd like to have two more rounds in the 60s and see where that leaves me after 72 holes because I think the course is going to firm up; I don't think (officials) want 25 under winning the tournament".




His birdie at the tough par-4 15th epitomized his round.

He hardly missed anything all day except the island green on No. 17. Instead, it fell for his 15th birdie of the week.

A new record 5-shot 36-hole lead.

Insisting he's over the disappointment of the Masters, he feels ready to curb his attacking instincts and rely on the quality of his ball-striking to win the game's unofficial fifth Major. But a five-stroke lead is a five-stroke lead, and you can burn yourself up in a hurry trying to chase around this place.

Woods has won twice at Sawgrass.

With 27 putts, Scott ranked 17th for strokes gained in putting on day one on Sawgrass' devilishly tricky greens, highlighted by a 50-foot par putt he drained early in the round to maintain momentum.

In other words, players on the PGA Tour are waiting for the rest of the planet to get on board. However, these guys are all still in the tournament as long as Simpson's putter cools on the weekend. Webb Simpson, Alex Noren, Chesson Hadley, 2012 PLAYERS Championship victor Matt Kuchar and Patrick Cantlay all will join him at the top spot when play resumes Friday.
