Bale: Tiger Woods is the greatest of all

"If I can keep the right tempo going, I'm going to keep hitting good shots", said the 33-year-old, who has won only twice in 173 starts on the PGA Tour, most significantly the 2011 US Masters.

Webb Simpson didn't miss anything except the island green at the TPC Sawgrass.

"I felt like everything was working today", Simpson told Golf Channel after his round.

Woods made the cut with nothing to spare after late mistakes from Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas on Friday evening pushed the cut back to one under, and he took full advantage as he fired a superb 65.

Woods, a 79-times victor on the PGA Tour, used his irons with precision and wielded a hot putter to record his lowest numerical score on the PGA Tour since 2015.

"I birdied the first couple of holes and I just kept it rolling from there", he said.

"I actually drove the ball unbelievably well the first two days, and I hit my driver really poorly today and shot 7-under".

Giuliani says Trump 'had no knowledge' of Cohen's corporate clients
The company is defending its merger with Time Warner in federal court against the Justice Department's efforts to block the deal. Cohen also reached out to Ford Motor Co., but the auto maker turned him down, according to people familiar with the matter.

That, and a red-hot putter. "You have to just take what it gives you, and take you medicine when you get out of position".

As Woods stood over a 14-foot putt at the par-3 13th hole to get to nine under for his round, and 10 under for the tournament - at the time, joint second place - fans crammed 10 and 12 deep atop the green-side mounding just to steal a glimpse.

The Northern Irishman struggled off the tee, hitting only 6 of 14 fairways and found 10 of 18 greens in regulation. Simpson simply couldn't miss, whether it was a 35-foot eagle putt on his second hole or a 30-foot birdie putt up the slope and into the cup on the 15th. He would eventually make birdie and added another, his eighth of the day, on the very next hole.

But he lifted his spirits with a sublime chip-in for a bonus birdie at the fourth, and he settled for five closing pars as further good birdie chances went begging at the sixth and ninth holes.

Woods had nudged his way all the way up to a tie for 8 by the end of his round, but he would not allow any illusion to seep into his mind regarding his chances of winning this tournament.

"I think nobody does kind of slightly overweight, middle-aged guy better than me, and this says exactly who I am", Mickelson said after his round of 79, still in good spirits despite his worst score at The Players since an 83 in the opening round in 2000. And when he does, that vault-like memory of his won't have to drift back to 2000, or 2008, or even 2013 for inspiration. However, based on the location of the Friday pins, Tiger Woods said he thinks someone could go low again.

Tiger Woods at least gets to return on the weekend.
