Holmes, Stanley share lead at Players Championship

Madeline Patrick | 15 May, 2017, 18:16

"It doesn't matter how good you're feeling, you have to play really well", Grillo said. "But there's so many unknowns because we don't even know, unless you get an image taken of it and you know exactly what's going on you don't know".

"I've been struggling with it a bit this week, sort of felt it for the first time on Sunday", the Northern Irishman told reporters. Then you'll get Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals at 7:30 ET Sunday on NBCSN, with the Ducks and Predators battling it out after a thrilling overtime win for Nashville in Game 1. The first came at The RSM Classic in November, where he shot a 9-under 61.

Vijay Singh's bid to become the oldest victor in PGA Tour history ended with a 7-over 79.

"I think that there's always a fine line between great and terrible and as a designer you're always trying to find that and it comes out to the nuances and subtleties and I think that, I thought 95 percent of the new hole on 12 was really good, I really liked a lot of it", Mickelson said after his final round.

He entered the week as the second highest-ranked rookie in the FedExCup standings at No. 20.

"I just call it I've got a half shot, a three-quarters shot, and a full shot".

"It was just a slight mis-hit and the ball started cutting on the wind. I tightened up a little bit and I didn't play as well as I've been playing".

As for fellow competitor Spieth, who played in the same pairing.

Chelsea star Gary Cahill better than Costa and Hazard - Wayne Bridge
Former Chelsea midfielder Gus Poyet believes Chelsea deserve to win the title because they've been the most consistent team. In this part of the season, we always said it's right to look at ourselves and not wait for the result of the other teams.

It was a case of contrasting emotions to his playing partner Sergio Garcia, particularly on the 17th, as he hit a stunning hole in one.

Poulter wasn't alone in having a shot at a big payoff from the $10.5 million purse.

McIlroy was just five shots off the clubhouse lead when he finished his round, but ended the day nine adrift of former Open champion Louis Oosthuizen and American Kyle Stanley.

Adam Scott will start six shots back on Sunday.

The 12th hole was certainly more appealing this year than the blind second shot it used to present. The eagles were at No. 11 and No. 16, and it was the first time in tournament history that one player accomplished that feat in the first round. Six other players were only four shots behind, a group that included Masters champion Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter, who thought he had lost his PGA Tour card two weeks ago until a clerical oversight was discovered.

The 2017 PLAYERS Championship is in the books. Since tournament moved to TPC Sawgrass in 1982, the best opening round by a defending champion is 68 by Craig Perks in 2003. He missed par putts of 7, 6 and just under 10 feet on those three holes. Garcia also owns the longest active-cuts-made streak at The Players with 13.

Sweden's Alex Noren, who won four times on the European Tour last season, was just two shots off the lead after carding his fourth birdie of the day on the 16th. Then again, some of the players use everything in their power to simply make the cut and end up moving the wrong way on the leaderboard.
