Enthralling Moving Day Awaits At The Players

Social Sharing: 

Zach JohnsonSaturday at TPC Sawgrass has all the makings of a classic with only eight shots separating the remaining 72 in the field. It really is anyone’s tournament at the moment with even those who just made the cut at level par capable of shooting a low score in the favourable early conditions and watching as the leaders deal with what the afternoon brings. There is a three-way tie at the half-way stage with Zach Johnson, Kevin Na and Matt Kuchar all on eight-under par. They have all driven the ball and putted superbly to get into this position and will be hoping to continue in this vein into the weekend (Matt Kuchar 5/1 to win). Neither have won here before with only Kevin Na having ever finished in the top five (Kevin Na 12/1 to win).

Harris English is a further shot behind on seven-under par and has really impressed so far this year in his debut season on the PGA Tour (Harris English 20/1). A maiden victory looks to be inevitable at some point this season, however whether he can close out a tournament at TPC Sawgrass with so little experience under his belt is questionable. Adam Scott and Martin Laird then lead a group of players on six-under par with Scott looking like a real threat for this title. He won here in 2004 and also has another three top 10 finishes here, as well as finishing in a tie for eighth in his last event at Augusta (Adam Scott 8/1 to win).

There a lot of accomplished players lurking within touching distance with numerous world class talents on two and three-under par, such as the likes of Phil Mickelson, Keegan Bradley, Martin Kaymer, Nick Watney, Lee Westwood, Luke Donald and Tiger Woods (Martin Kaymer 80/1 to win). Tiger looked like his old self during a four hole stretch from eight to eleven, where he birdied each one and will be intent on maintaining his solid play into Saturday and have a real go at leaving himself in and around the lead on the final day (Tiger Woods 14/1 to win). Lee Westwood and Luke Donald are also well placed on three-under par and have the patience and course management skills to have a real go at this tournament with 36 holes of play left (Luke Donald 18/1 to win).
