McIlroy, Fleetwood out front; Tiger all wet
Rory McIlroy finished eagle-birdie-par down the famed closing stretch at the TPC Sawgrass for a 7-under 65 to tie Tommy Fleetwood for the lead going into the weekend at The Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Fleetwood shot a 67 and was the first to reach 12-under 144.
Jim Furyk shot a 64 and was three behind, along with Ian Poulter, Abraham Ancer and Brian Harman. Tiger Woods hit two balls in the water on the island-green 17th hole, leading to a quadruple bogey that left him at 71, nine back.
