Si Woo Kim, of South Korea, takes a drop on the 16th hole during the third round of The Players Championship golf tournament Saturday, May 13, 2017, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Jon Rahm of Spain, the best newcomer on the PGA Tour, was five shots behind when he started and missed the 54-hole cut with an 82.

After a slow start Saturday, bogeying three of his first four holes, Stanley settled into his round and hit 13 of 14 fairways en route to an even-par 72 to remain tied for the lead with J.B. Holmes at 9 under.

Rory McIlroy, who is using his new Taylor Made clubs, finished on even after two rounds, though afterwards he revealed back pains will see him have a scan in Belfast next week.

World No.11 Scott, the 2004 Players victor, finished six back of the lead at three under in a share of 13th place, while countryman and defending champion Jason Day let a hot start slip away. As it was Jordan Spieth missing the cut for the third straight year.

Holmes didn't hit a fairway over his last six holes on the wind-swept Players Stadium Course, including one that was so far right off the 14th tee that it went into a water hazard on the 12th hole.

Singh, who won his first PGA Tour Champions title with Carlos Franco at the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf, said the victory, despite the fact that it occurred on a par-3 course in a team event, still gave his confidence a boost since his FedEx Cup championship season in 2008.

Meanwhile their former bandmate Zayn Malik has also found success with his solo album Mind of Mine, released previous year (16). And it also has remnants of Taylor's own song " Style " when Harry mentions his white T-shirt and tattoos.


"It's going to make us look pretty silly in spots", said Phil Mickelson (-2).

"I'm rolling the ball really nicely and feel really confident on the greens".

"I usually can make a bunch of birdies, so if I can just narrow it down to one bogey, then I'm usually in good shape", Holmes said. Scott Piercy recorded the first-ever quintuple bogey-9 on the par-4 fifth hole Friday morning...there were 29 balls in the water at the par-3 17th hole Friday, the most ever in a second round since 2003. Things off the course are really good, so I think from a mental standpoint, that's helped quite a bit, as well. He bounced back with a birdie on the island-green 17th and shot 68 to finish two shots out of the lead.

Kim birdied the par-5 second and ninth holes, began the back nine with another birdie had a tap-in birdie at 12. Sweden's Alex Noren shot a 1-under 71 and sits in a tie for fifth at 5-under. - Some star power moved onto The Players Championship leaderboard during Friday's second round - even if one of the contenders qualifies for AARP benefits.

Ian Poulter made a bogey-free 71 and is on six under alongside Emiliano Grillo, while Masters champion Sergio Garcia fired a superb 67 to reach five under.

"Everyone who's won one, you want to try and win a second", Oosthuizen said.

But the front produced wind that sent the scoring average up almost a full stroke from the second round to 74.037, and it also will result in a turn from southwest wind to northeast for the final round, which will give players a breeze normally associated with the former March date. I got a little bit of a read from Louis (Oosthuizen)'s putt. He surrendered his share of the lead on the first hole with a bogey and fought through the rest of the round to keep up with Stanley and, ultimately, Holmes.
