Tiger And Spieth Make A Move On Saturday

Featured Groups on Saturday at THE PLAYERS

Saturday's performance was the latest positive sign for 42-year-old Woods, a two-times victor of the Players Championship, who is trying to regain sharpness after last year's successful spinal fusion. Because Woods is in ninth place, he would need to shoot another 65 or better, have everyone ahead of him play average or below average golf and have Webb Simpson fall on his longish putter and shoot the worst round of his career.

Tiger Woods shot not only his lowest score of the year but his lowest-ever at the Players Championship as he electrified the enormous galleries with a wonderful third-round 65 on Saturday.

The 42-year old former long-time World No. 1 quickly lit-up the Florida course with four birdies in his opening five holes and had a huge crowd roaring with delight, and with the cheers being heard as far as the course auto parks.

World No. 62 Charl Schwartzel stumbled to a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in the third round of THE PLAYERS, dropping three spots into a five-way T4 on 9-under 207, a distant 10 in arrears of 54-hole leader and playing competitor Webb Simpson, who shot 68. But the star-studded final-round pairing of Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth could make Mother's Day at TPC Sawgrass well worth the price of admission, especially if the duo performs like they did on moving day.

"I didn't get off to the start I wanted to", Woods said after the round. I hit a lot of good shots today. "I didn't try and do too much, I recognised that my game is actually in a really good place right now", the three-times major victor said.

Lethal Weapon did get renewed with the announcement that American Pie actor Seann William Scott will be replacing Clayne Crawford. Gotham has only been averaging 3.7 million viewers and 1.2 in the 18-49 demo and wasn't expected to squeak into another year.

"To be 8-under there through 12, realistically I probably could have got a couple more out of it and got to 10 (under) for the day", he said. "I got off to a much better start". Even with that double bogey, Simpson tied the Stadium Course record with a nine-under 63 and had a five-shot lead after 36 holes, the largest in the 45 years of this tournament. So the ball is just going a long way today, this golf course is playing very short and with this amount of humidity, the greens are going to be holding all day.

Soon, it was just like the old days as the whispers filtered through the trees that Woods was on the march. He is 12-under for the tournament, seven shots back from Simpson. I think that some of the guys will probably shoot better scores than I did out there.

Tiger Woods at least gets to return on the weekend. His other statistics were as impressive as you'd expect: 11/14 fairways, 15/18 greens and just 27 putts. "These guys are going to go low today again".

"If you're off a little bit, you make bogeys or double bogeys as easy as you can make birdies", Simpson said. "Today, for the most part, I did that". He made a 9-foot birdie putt at four and by the time he cashed 16-footer for birdie at five, word was out and the crowd was awake and the place was up for grabs. "All those things that have happened, I'd love to know them if I win tomorrow".
