Tiger Woods makes huge claim after thrilling weekend at The Players Championship

Tiger Woods at The Players Championship

TPC Sawgrass belonged to champion Webb Simpson, who brilliantly controlled this prestigious tournament, but it was Woods who dominated most conversations in the aftermath.

Woods closed with a three-under 69 on Sunday and finished in a tie for 11th place at the PLAYERS Championship. He watched certain players crawl closer and closer to him but he never let it get to him.

2018 has the potential to be a career-defining year for Webb Simpson.

"Eventually I was going to put all the pieces together and today, for the most part, I did that", Woods said.

"The way I was coming back into it, I was just trying to get a feel for it and hopefully have a schedule".

Reflecting on his win, Simpson said: It feels great. In March, it was Paul Casey. The good news for him is that with that 6-under 66 in the final round, Thomas moves to No. 1 in the world, usurping Dustin Johnson's 64-week reign at the top. And with danger lurking at every corner on the Pete Dye-designed Stadium Course, that would suggest that the crystal and largest paycheck in golf-just shy of $2 million-doesn't belong to Simpson just yet.

"There are some big events to be played and one of my goals is to get into Akron one last time before we leave there", he said. "I got off to a much better-quality start". I didn't start putting better immediately, but it's what led to using the Kuch-style putter. "There wouldn't be too many people wanting to come down the stretch against Tiger Woods".

But it is what happened immediately afterwards that leaves cause for concern. Simpson did however lead the field in driving accuracy, finding the fairway 82.14% of the time. Woods was seven shots back.

In his pomp, Woods' competitive instincts would have ensured no such inaccuracy would creep into his game at such a vital moment.

Raptors' Dwane Casey Named Coach of the Year by His NBA Peers
Since taking over as Boston's coach in 2013, Stevens has helped the team improve its record each season and has gone 221-189 in the process.

Many consider The Players Championship as the fifth major on tour.

"It's been a long time". Nearly contending isn't in the same galaxy as Tiger's expectations. He holed his second shot on the par-5 16th for an albatross, birdied the 17th but parred the closing hole when a birdie would have given him the course record.

Duval told Golf Channel viewers in the United States: "We've all questioned what is the top for him in this comeback?" Golf's governing bodies became concerned - and voila, such a method went the way of the gutta percha golf ball. I think it's been an emotional week for my mum and sisters and my brother, " Simpson said.

"Well, it looked to me this week that he regained that freedom". I thought I missed the cut by one.

"He hit some monster tee shots, incredible iron shots and the freedom with which he did that we just hadn't seen". Jordan Spieth who got the honor of pairing with Woods in the final round had a good final round and tournament.

"The question is when is he going to play again?"

"I mean, he'll win sometime soon enough", said Spieth. I hit it so good. "His game, if I compare it to other guys that are winning golf tournaments that I'm playing with day-to-day, it's right up there".

Wherever he shows up, Woods will generate a big buzz. "And he may be walking off with a third Players Championship".
