Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia are part of a three-way tie for the lead at The Players Championship, both going after golf's richest prize without the pleasure of being in the same group for the final round at the TPC Sawgrass.
Garcia didn't back away from sharing his feelings about Woods. "I'm not going to lie, he's not my favorite guy to play with," Garcia said told Sky Sports. "He's not the nicest guy on tour."
Woods ended a weekend of verbal sparring with Garcia by doing what he does best — closing out tournaments, even if he let this one turn into a tense duel over the final hour at the TPC Sawgrass. Tied with Garcia with two holes to play, Woods won by finding land on the last two holes for par to close with a 2-under 70. If only it were that simple for the Spaniard.
David Lingmerth stood with a wedge in his hand on the 13th hole looking up at the leader board. "Lingmerth -7" it read. The 27-year-old Swede was in first place.
"This morning going to the course, I was kind of fist pumping because I knew the weather was going to be [bad]," Lingmerth said. "I've kind of become Americanized a little bit, but this is a good day in Sweden. I'm used to playing in this type of weather."
"I don't know if it's sunk in. I don't know how long that's going to take," Lingmerth said after being presented with the trophy by Maryland basketball coaching great Gary Williams.
