Golf’s former world number one Tiger Woods carded his best round in more than two and a half years, a seven under 65 on day three of the Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach USA.
But it was still not good enough to catch runaway leader Webb Simpson who is on nineteen under par after round three, seven shots ahead of his nearest rival.
Simpson looks unstoppable. So far after 54 holes, he’s carded twenty birdies and two eagles.
On Saturday he signed for a four under par 68.
New Zealand’s Danny Lee is second on twelve under par thanks to a round of two under seventy.
But it was Tiger Woods who got the spectators going. The last time he scored 65 on the PGA tour was in August 2015.
And the crowds didn’t mind that after 54 holes he’s eleven shots behind Simpson on eight under par.
Seeing Woods play the type of golf that brought him fourteen majors, was good enough.
South Africa’s Charl Schwartzel slipped down the leader board after carding a one over par 73.
He’s on nine under, ten shots behind Simpson.
