Simpson in four-stroke win at Players Championship

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla.

When you pick up more than nine strokes on the field for the week in strokes gained/putting, it's easy to key in on your putter as the club that helped you win the tournament.

"Eventually I was going to put all the pieces together and today, for the most part, I did that", he said. Tiger Woods tied for 11th with a score of 277.

Danny Lee made birdies at the second and third holes to apply some pressure on the American and remain in second spot. He added birdies at the 11th and 12th and was 6 under par for his round. Charl Schwartzel, Jimmy Walker and Xander Schauffele shared second.

Few things in sports are more thrilling than watching Tiger Woods tear up a golf course. Mickelson finished at 8 over par and missed the cut by 9 shots. It was harder than I thought.

"I hit the ball better today than I did yesterday. Just didn't go in". On his final hole he hit a shot in the water but at that point, it didn't matter. He finished 11 under par, seven shots behind Simspon and three back of second-place.

"I've been waiting for this moment my whole career", Lagergren said. I was pretty stubborn.

"You're not sure if it's just because it landed close but then the roars kept going so we figured it went in. It was unlucky there".

He blamed a gust of wind, rather than a bad shot for that stumble, however.

"It was blowing downwind, and then, unfortunately, it switched in my face", he said. And he had 10 top-10 finishes.

Woods, who rocketed up the leaderboard with a seven-under 65 on Saturday, recorded a 69 on the final day. He will move from 53rd to 48th in the FedEx Cup standings.

"Over four years without a win, I never doubted myself but at the same time that's a long time", he said. 'And one of my goals is to get into Akron [the name of the course used at Bridgestone] one last time before we leave there. It is moving to Memphis, Tennessee, after this year. He has won there a record eight times but he is not qualified for the event.

Jordan Spieth, Woods' playing partner in the final round, said: "He'll win sometime soon enough. I think I got within four or five of the lead at one point, and if I would have played I think the last five holes maybe in 4-, 5-under par, I might have had a chance, and just didn't do it". But now I feel like I've got my playing feels back and I'm playing tournament golf.

Woods has yet to tell us when he will next be competing, but Jack Nicklaus' Memorial event in Dublin, Ohio - starting on 31 May - would seem the logical choice in the build-up to next month's US Open.

Scott won twice in 2016 but is still without a top-10 finish in almost a year due to recent putting struggles.

At the 137-yard par-3 17th, Varner III hit a tee shot 129 yards at the green, setting himself up for the 7-foot putt for birdie.

The fairytale storyline was to come to an abrupt ending, a outcome both of Simpson's unwillingness to reverse and Woods' own failings. Simpson is one of the shortest hitters on the PGA Tour and averaged only 280.5 yards off the tee for the week. He has jumped from 1,199th in the world to 80th.

"My dad got me started in the game", Simpson said. I feel so similar to how I felt in Greensboro back in 2011.
