    THE PLAYERS Championship

    No chance Ricky repeats his final round magic. Of course he aced 17 today in a practice round.

    Sergio aced 17 - sweet! When he got to 18, he said to his playing mates "anyone have a zero back on 17? Guess I have the honors". :cool:

    Adam Scott finishes R1 at -2. He had a hot round going until he hit 4 over for the last two holes.

    Sergio tied for 66th place. Justin Rose tied for 80th. Doesn't look like we will have a repeat of the Sunday Masters duel.

    I did not realize Vijay Singh was still alive, let alone capable of pushing the front page of the leaderboard at The Players.

    Vijay is just one of those timeless players with a disgustingly sweet swing, and when he gets it going can compete STILL with the best in the world. It's kinda like Freddie's magic at Augusta

    The young 21 year old kid is looking pretty solid. If he can hold on.....

    Jason Day carded an 80 for the last round. Day and Spieth have certainly had some issues. Day's seems to be health and his mother's recent diagnosis. Spieth just seems to have lost his focus/confidence.

    Bello had only the third albatross ever recorded at The Players.

    Another fun final round to watch.

    ... fun to watch except for Johnny Miller. I've always appreciated Miller's perspective. Just wish he would get past the Tiger Woods love affair. Yesterday, they were talking about Sergio's Masters win. Miller said it's easier for anyone to win when Tiger is not in the field. Duh! Woods health issues should take nothing away from Garcia's win. Today, after Kim hit a nice iron shot Miller said "He's channeling Tiger." Let it go!!! These kids today are good. These players have shown us that any one of many can get hot and duke it out on any given Sunday. Rant off.....

    Did Poulter really just pull that shot off? Almost jarred it!

    Was surprised he was able to move all the debris before taking the drop. Isn't that 'improving his lie'?? Didn't hear the commentators explain. As much work as he did, I assume everything was well within the Rules of Golf.

    Johnny Miller is the reason I watch golf with the sound on mute.
