    A big putt, and a big win for Martin Kaymer

    Martin Kaymer thought his gap wedge to the island green on the 17th hole at The Players Championship was fine. He couldn't believe it when he realized it had bounced sideways and spun so hard that it wound up in the shaggy collar, a foot away from going into the water.

    Jordan Spieth repeatedly pumped his fist when his 12-foot par putt dropped into cup on the final hole, a clutch moment worthy of celebration for two reasons. It gave him a third straight bogey-free round at The Players Championship and a share of the lead Saturday with Martin Kaymer.

    Spieth goes bogey-free and ties Kaymer at Players

    Jordan Spieth couldn't see any of the 240 yards to the green on the toughest hole at the TPC Sawgrass. He was in the rough so far right of the 14th fairway that he was closer to a water hazard on No. 12 that he didn't know even existed. His ball was on the back side of a mound. One wrong move could have led to a big number.

Quotations
  • "After playing these couple rounds, I think he'll take something from it, so it won't be a surprise when he starts the first couple rounds [at the British Open]," said Jordan Spieth, who joined Jason Day in Woods' threesome. "His swing looks good. He's not over-swinging. He's in rhythm. When he was putting, he wasn't aggressive enough, but we were all leaving it short."

  • "He finally found his rhythm and we saw what happens when he finds his rhythm out there," said Spieth, who finished the day alongside Woods at 3-over. "Look for a pretty solid round tomorrow out of him. Wouldn't be surprised if he shoots a few under."
