"I hit it so good today, so to not really mishit a shot all day and shoot 3 under par is just weird".
Charl Schwartzel of South Africa, Jimmy Walker and Xander Schauffele tied for second at 14 under par, with Jason Day of Australia and Jason Dufner knotted in fifth another stroke in arrears. It came nearly seven months after the death of his father.
And, yes, there are a lot of very good players around in the game at the moment, so winning again is way more hard for Woods than it once was. "It's been an emotional week for my mom and sisters and my brother". Many in Scotland, of course, will still remember his less than convincing opening tee shot in the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, but there was nothing meek about this display.
And yet, his success with the anchored putting stroke helped hasten its demise. He admitted to tough times over the last two years and credited his wife, Dowd.
Simpson began using a claw grip with his right hand on the eve of last year's Players and he tied for 16th after back-to-back seasons in which he missed the cut and tied for 66th. He ranked first in strokes gained: putting at The Players, gaining more than nine shots on the field.
'Superman' star Margot Kidder dies at 69
Kidder played Lois Lane to Christopher Reeve's Superman in the 1978 film and continued on in that role for the next three sequels. She was an activist all her life and much like Lane wasn't afraid to speak out for what she thought was right.
Although Simpson and others were given more than two years to get used to the change before it was written into law on January 1, 2016, the adjustment proved hard.
Simpson navigated his way through a few mistakes, but not too much stress in his four-shot victory Sunday at the TPC Sawgrass.
In the morning, Brooks Koepka (63), who also had the PLAYERS second-ever albatross on the 16th, showed low scorers were possible, but for anyone to make a bid, Simpson would also need to falter. More importantly, his closest pursuer was the one guy whose appearance on a leaderboard still sends ripples around the course, even five years after his last win.
All eyes were on Tiger Woods-Jordan Spieth pairing Sunday after they both shot 65 in Round 3 to break into the top 10. He finished T-11.
He said: 'There's no way I would have predicted I would be at this point at the beginning of the year, the way I was just coming back and just trying to get a feel for it and then hopefully have a schedule. He earned $1.98 million, for his biggest payday since winning the 2012 U.S. Open. None could do enough to catch Simpson during record scoring at the final Players Championship in May.
Apple's got more self-driving cars on the road than Google, Tesla
The self-driving auto permits issued by California's DMV require a safety driver to be on board to grab the wheel at any time. It started out with just 3 registered cars in April a year ago , and that number has now expanded to 55.
On Sunday, starting the day 11 shots behind Simpson, Woods shot 32 on the front. Though in championship fettle the Stadium Course still measures 7,200 yards, which is a pitch and putt for today's monster hitters unless you layer a place with booby traps. Next year the event returns to March, when conditions tend not to be as favorable.
The low point was 2016 at the start of the FedEx Cup playoffs, when he started to get short with his caddie, and they sat in the auto in the parking lot at Bethpage Black talking about how to move forward.
Justin Thomas also has cause for celebration going into Memorial after becoming the 21st different golfer to become world No. 1 following his joint-11th finish at the Players.
"It means a lot, but it's something I want to have for a long time", Thomas said. And so I go over there and snap it over my knee..
