Tiger (65) rockets up leaderboard at Players
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Tiger Woods shot his lowest score at TPC Sawgrass on Saturday, racing up the leaderboard at the Players Championship after barely making the 36-hole cut.
The 7-under-par 65 was better than the 66s he shot here in 2000 and 2001 — also during the third round. Woods twice shot 67 during his second victory at the Players Championship in 2013.
Woods, 42, got off to a fast start, making birdies at four of his first five holes en route to a front-nine 30 — one off the course record. It was his lowest score ever on the front side at TPC Sawgrass.
Halfway leader Webb Simpson was still nearly 2 hours away from starting his third round when Woods finished his round.
Woods is making his eighth start this year on the PGA Tour.
