PLAYERS: SPIETH and KAYMER co-leaders

When Jordan Spieth has returned a putt on 18 to 10 meters for par, he clenched his fists as a sign of relief … and satisfaction. This putt sanctioned indeed a bogey-free third round at the Players Championship, and offered him the leadership of the tournament with Martin Kaymer.

He had to fight for it, since four times in the last hole, he had to fight for par after misguided commitments. And four times, he managed to escape and keep his card without bogeys,
not without having benefited from a bit of luck, as the 5 by 16 where a thin rough stopped a bullet that everyone saw in the water. « Today, I just visited the course and I struggled to stay alive » , has he confessed.

« I’ll have to play better tomorrow if I want to have a chance to win this tournament. « 

Martin Kaymer, under pressure from the start of the tournament, still held his position yesterday, making a correct card 72. There were two shots ahead at the start of the 10th, but he did not take advantage of pars 5 back to keep that No. avance.L former World 1, winless for two years, must resist the strong challenge of the tournament with exceptionally 1.8 million, a five-year exemption on the PGA tour and three years at the Masters and British Open, nothing else. But he is aware of what to do today, « better manage pars 5 and stay cool on the last two holes. «  Easier said than done, but the analysis is correct.

The two co-leaders three strokes ahead of John Senden and Sergio Garcia, who played yesterday 68 and 69, and four on Matt Jones, George McNeill and Gary Woodland, to -. 8 Note the excellent map 67 Francesco Molinari, eighth to 5 shots of co-leaders and still in the race before the last round. Justin Rose was part of this group - 7 until the arbitrators, after a careful examination of images and much deliberation, finally decreed that his ball had moved slightly before his chip 18 by His final was then. turned into a double-bogey and card 71 card 73. 13th is now 7 shots behind the leaders. Hard on morale before a final round difficult on this extremely challenging course.

The TPC Sawgrass held decidedly rank and presents itself as the ideal setting for a spectacular and dramatic last lap, as we like.
