The 2017 Players Championship Is In Full Swing
Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida is the place to be as THE PLAYERS Championship is in Full Swing. J.B. Holmes defied conventional wisdom on a most unconventional course, walking anything but the straight and narrow at the TPC Sawgrass until he wound up in a most unlikely place Saturday in THE PLAYERS Championship. He is tied for the lead with Kyle Stanley.
Holmes didn’t hit a fairway over his last six holes on the wind-swept THE PLAYERS Stadium Course, including one that was so far right off the 14th tee that it went into a water hazard on the 12th hole.
He was among eight players who hit five or fewer fairways in the third round. The other seven had an average score of 76.43. Somehow, Holmes shot 70.
