Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth paired together in final round for first time ever at The Players Championship

Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth will play together on Sunday for the first time ever when they tee off Sunday afternoon at The Players Championship.

Both Woods and Spieth are in the top 10…

Woods struggled somewhat over the first two days, sitting right on the cut line at -1 after Friday’s round. But he turned the clock back on Saturday, firing a 65, the best round he’s ever had at TPC Sawgrass. He had the putter going on the front nine, shooting a sparkling 30 at the turn. He finished the day at -8 for the tournament.


While Woods grabbed the headlines, Spieth likewise started the day at -1 and turned in a 65. He birdied nine holes — including six on the back and his final three in a row. He has been marvelous since an opening-round 75. Woods and Spieth are tied for ninth along with Tommy Fleetwood, Ian Poulter, Harold Varner III, Matt Kuchar and Patrick Cantlay.

Can Woods or Spieth win?

Woods is a two-time winner (2001 and 2013), but it would take something really special on Sunday to get number three. He and Spieth are 11 shots back of Webb Simpson (-19), who has been absolutely terrific for the first three rounds. Simpson holds a seven-shot lead over Danny Lee (-12).

Someone — whether it’s Woods or Spieth or someone else — will have to get rolling early and put some pressure on Simpson, a four-time winner on Tour, at golf’s “fifth major.”
