The third round of the 2019 Players Championship is under way on Saturday with Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood sharing the overnight lead into the weekend.
The pair sat on 12-under par after Friday’s play, three shots ahead of Jim Furyk, Ian Poulter, Brian Harman and Abraham Ancer at TPC Sawgrass in Florida.
One shot behind that quartet are Jason Day, Kevin Kisner and Keith Mitchell, but it could be all change on moving day.
Here’s how the top of the leaderboard is shaping up ahead of Saturday, and read on for a look at some of the major storylines to watch out for:Alan Shipnuck: Rory wins because the law of averages is a powerful thing. After so many Sunday stumbles he has to bring his A-game. Right?!
Sean Zak: I agree! Plus, he’s not in that final pairing anymore. He’ll get out ahead of Rahm and Fleetwood. Also, can we even trust Rahm under pressure on this mind-bending course?
Josh Berhow: Tommy Fleetwood seemed to be off all day and still shot 70. He got some jitters out of the way today and will be more relaxed tomorrow en route to his first PGA Tour victory. Wonder if Paddy Harrington is lobbying to move the Whistling Straits Ryder Cup up a year?
Zak: This leaderboard does seem void of Americans. DJ is sitting down there at 10 under.
Dylan Dethier: Tommy’s driving it incredibly well (all these leaders are, I guess) but a bit squirrely on the approach. I’d lean Rory, too, but I have to say I love Jason Day’s chances from three back. He’s rock solid on this golf course, and he’ll need to be when the weather gets a little weirder tomorrow.
Zak: So, did you pick anyone?
Dethier: Gimme Day!
Michael Bamberger: Abraham Ancer. Keeps his ball dry, gets in the house, leaders rinse something here and there late, and then he offers some thank-yous in his beautiful native tongue.
Josh Sens: Fleetwood. He got his bad round out of the way Saturday, and it wasn’t even all that bad.Playing in the Players Championship wasn’t even an option for Jim Furyk a few weeks ago.
After the 48-year-old had spent much of the last two years occupied with his duties as U.S. Ryder Cup captain and finished outside the top 125 in the FedEx Cup standings, he began this season playing from a limited category.
Then came the Honda Classic two weeks ago. Furyk closed with rounds of 68-67 to tie for ninth, just enough to qualify him for his hometown tournament.“A couple players told me there in the locker room that I may get in the field, and I was excited, did my homework, and realized that there was a good chance,” he said Friday at TPC Sawgrass. “I prepared last week a lot like I was in, and thankful for that opportunity, was able to take advantage of it the last couple days.”
Never more so than in the second round. Furyk made eight birdies and nary a bogey en route to a 64—a career-best in more than two decades of playing the event—to shoot up the leader board and into contention heading into the weekend at a tournament he’s had something of a love-hate relationship with over the years.
This year marks Furyk’s 23rd start at the Players, where he has finished in the top five on four occasions, including in 2014 when he finished runner-up. But he also has missed the cut five times.
