PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Players spent more time in the clubhouse than the golf course Saturday at The Players Championship, a rain-shortened day that left enough time for some high entertainment.
Martin Kaymer made four straight birdie putts that traveled a combined 71 inches.
The tournament staff had to move the cup on the 16th hole a few feet after the 4½-hour storm delay because of damage around the hole that it couldn’t repair.
Ian Poulter was so desperate to finish his third round that he sprinted to the island-green 17th to finish the hole, then ran to the 18th tee and hit his drive to keep himself from having to wake up Sunday before dawn.
