McGirt grabs early lead at Saw­grass

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

PONTE VE­DRA BEACH, Fla. Wil­liam McGirt made a pair of ea­gles on the back nine to atone for mis­takes that were in­evitable for just about ev­ery­one Thurs­day in The Play­ers Cham­pi­onship. McGirt holed a 55-foot ea­gle putt on the par-5 11th, and then hit a 5-iron to 10 feet for ea­gle on the par-5 16th. A bo­gey on the fi­nal hole gave him a 5-un­der 67 on a steamy morn­ing at the TPC Saw­grass, and a one-shot lead among the early starters.
