McGirt, Hughes tied for lead at Players Championship

The newlywed world No. 2, who missed nearly two months of action at the start of this year after picking up a rib stress fracture, will undergo a scan on Monday after ongoing problems during the Players Championship. I'd rather just get a nice practice session.

World number one Dustin Johnson tops a large group at 71 that also includes German Bernhard Langer, who at 59 is the oldest player in the tournament.

"It's in the same area as what the injury was at the start of the year, I said over there, if that injury was an eight or a nine in terms of pain and soreness and stiffness, this is around a four or five", the four-time major victor said.

McGirt made his first eagle with a 55-foot putt at the par-five 11th before sinking a 10-footer at the par-five 16th. It wasn't just any hole-in-one either.

Dumfries & County player Liam Johnston was among just 13 players to break par in the first round of the Irish Open Stroke-Play Championship at Royal County Down.

"And then I was going to go out Wednesday, and I just thought, gosh, if I walk around in the heat, I'll get exhausted".

A three-putt bogey on the 18th took some of the gloss off a superb round, but as he signed his card the Ryder Cup star was just three off the lead held by former Open champion Louis Oosthuizen.

It was the eighth ace at the island green in the history of the event, and Garcia raised his right arm in a somewhat muted clenched-fist celebration as the gallery went wild.

Something broke on my auto . "You never know what's going to happen". "I'm just so proud of everyone on this team; all my guys". He's definitely talented enough, and it would be interesting indeed if he beat his JGR teammates to a win in 2017.

Ian Poulter is just three shots off the lead heading into the final round of The Players Championship as Sergio Garcia stormed into contention on day three at TPC Sawgrass.

"It was great", Garcia said.

Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, and Garcia all shot 73.

After playing just 13 tournaments in 2016 due to a foot injury, Poulter had 10 events this season to earn 218 FedEx Cup points or 347,634 United States dollars (£269,755) to remain fully exempt. He plans to get an MRI on Monday when he gets to Northern Ireland.

"I went back at it again on Friday [May 5] and instead of maybe gradually building up again, I hit balls for four or five hours and did the same on Saturday", he said.

Victory for either Scott or world No.3 Day would tie the record for 36-hole comeback (seven shots) at golf's unofficial fifth major, set by South Africa's Tim Clark in 2010. "I felt a bit of stiffness on Sunday, hit a couple of drives that didn't feel quite right", he said.

Brooks Koepka had a reasonable day and could have been better than his 74, except for putting his tee shot into the water on both par 3s on the back nine.
