I can win again, declares Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods hits a shot from the 11th tee during the third round of The Players Championship on Saturday in Ponte Vedra Beach Fla. | John Raoux  AP

Click on the following links to shop Webb Simpson's putter at Dick's Sporting Goods and Golf Galaxy. It's harder than ever to win on tour, because so many golfer's "best" is good enough to win. He knows what it's like to play with big leads, to win big.

Although Simpson and others were given more than two years to get used to the change before it was written into law on January 1, 2016, the adjustment proved hard. With the U.S. Open around the corner, and the Ryder Cup on the horizon, this could just be the tip of the iceberg.

Tiger was as close as three but had a awful final three holes he would finish 8 shots back. And then he hit one, and the wind is just going like this the whole day, and if he caught this, he's a tap-in birdie. Not when you consider how acute the putting problems had become, and the depths to which it impacted his game.

Tommy Fleetwood's 68 and 12 under could and should have been better but for a series of missed putts.

Simpson had taken on the challenge of ditching his anchored stroke with abandon.

The remarkable exchange saw a distraught Corcoran forced to hand his goalkeeper's shirt to defender Oisin McEntee. The penalty was forced to be retaken, which Redan did to see the Dutch advance to the semis.

He has had some excellent performances following his return from injury and we've seen flashes but this was a big one and I thought he was magnificent. So it made working hard that much harder. He kept me in other sports. "And I'm glad I did". The victor receives a three-year exemption to the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open.

Rejuvenated Webb Simpson deserves all the plaudits and headlines he is receiving after holding his nerve to post a dominant victory at The Players Championship on Sunday. Just 11 winners in the 44-year history of The Players have yet to win a major.

Simpson finished at 18-under 270 and fell well short of Greg Norman's all-time scoring record, but this was not a day to be chasing scoring records.

Justin Thomas is the new world No.1. “Talking to great putters helped. Like Matt Kuchar, he also putts the shaft up against his left forearm. "I hit a lot of good, quality shots". "I'm very thankful he gave me that lesson".

But this is Simpson's show until further notice. He was more consistent.

The fairytale storyline was to come to an abrupt ending, a effect both of Simpson's unwillingness to reverse and Woods' own failings. He would have been pushing the top 50 with a second-place finish.

"There is no way I would have predicted I would be at this point at the beginning of the year", Woods said. Aaron Baddeley and Brandt Snedeker, had tons of conversations with those guys.”. "But I got to do some work between now and then, hopefully put together one good event".

Precision was the key to his Mother's Day victory, having been last in the field for driving distance but first for driving accuracy. "Or they'll ban it, too". I think I was flawless inside of 10 to 15 feet today and anywhere inside, which was probably the first time this year. "I never doubted myself, but at the same time, that's a long time". "I didn't play particularly well in the first couple days, but I turned it around this weekend and I got it rolling".
