Tiger Woods makes huge claim after thrilling weekend at The Players Championship

Tiger Woods makes huge claim after thrilling weekend at The Players Championship

So while the latest star in the generation he inspired ascends to No. 1, Tiger Woods can only hope to join the list of seemingly random PGA Tour winners in the coming months, fully completing a comeback where golf fans hope this week is that week. Notes: Tiger Woods is back at the TPC Sawgrass for the first time in three years.

2018 has shown glimpses of a return to form for the man who has 79 PGA Tour events to his name - in seven tournaments prior to this weekend Woods only missed one cut and recorded two top-10 finishes. The changes I made after LA; the way I played at Honda and how I played at Valspar and Bay Hill...

Webb Simpson didn't need to hit it a mile to win the Players Championship and bring home a $1.98 million check. This marked an emotional scene for Simpson, whose father died at the end of a year ago.

He said: 'I played so well this weekend.

"To be honest, I mean, I've never putted this well in my life, and I think if I had stayed with the belly putter, I think I maybe averaged 35th to 60th every year in putting, so very average".

Tiger Woods, at 42, will no doubt dominate the golf landscape until he retire while 20-somethings Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy have all occupied top spot at a young age.

"There are some big events to be played and one of my goals is to get into Akron one last time before we leave there", he said.

"Being in that position is a lot harder than I thought", Simpson said. Sometimes it's just a mystery; some weeks, something happens, and I had a good solid first round and then second round was pretty special.

The fairytale storyline was to come to an abrupt ending, a effect both of Simpson's unwillingness to reverse and Woods' own failings.

The power and fitness are there for all to see; on Sunday he fired an imperious tee shot 354 yards on the treacherous 14th at Sawgrass. He was first in the field in driving accuracy, and Sunday was the first time he hit fewer than 14 greens in regulation in any round. He couldn't get up and down and the bogey eliminated any chance he might have had. Having won so many Majors so early - three by the age of 25 - he should be knocking them off at this stage of his career and at least one a year. It moves next season to March, a week after the Arnold Palmer Invitational and a week before the Valspar Championship.

Man Utd To Announce Signing After FA Cup Final
Michael Carrick's career switch from Manchester United player to coach will get going at Wembley on Saturday for the FA Cup final. Carrick will hang up his boots at the end of the campaign and become part of Jose Mourinho's coaching staff next term.


"It's been a long time". He bogeyed the hole on Saturday. On the Sunday, he covered the same stretch in six under. Golf's governing bodies became concerned - and voila, such a method went the way of the gutta percha golf ball.

"Well, it looked to me this week that he regained that freedom". Dustin Johnson the former number 1 player in the world was near the leaderboard but needed to win to keep his ranking.

"The question is when is he going to play again? Unfortunately (I) just didn't cash in", Woods, who had been in contention in the final round in four of his eight starts this year, said.

Simpson's overall score of 18 under was the lowest at the Players Championship since 2003, and his six consecutive birdies on Friday equaled a tournament record.
