    First off, 2 of best interesting golfers to follow had a big day 3 at the Players tournament I think worth talking about: Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth.

    Both barely made the day 2 cut. Both started the day only -1 overall. Then both shot a -7 on the day, finding themselves 8 shots off the lead and tied for 9th place.

    It's not impossible for either of them to actually contend for the championship on day 4. Though an 8 shot deficient is pretty unlikely to come back from. Would require an awful amount of luck and good fortune in a single day. Should make for a dramatic final 9. :)

    Finally there's Webb Simpson. This guy basically came from out of nowhere, matching the course record on one of his days, and leading the whole pack strong at -17 under. I wonder if this is the coming out party for Simpson, or just another golfer finding his stride and putting together a great mini run, just to settle back into the middle of the pack?

    Webb is now -19 under. Closest guy to him is -12 under. Simpson's the only guy in the whole tournament to shoot under 70 all of the first 3 rounds. Gotta think he has it in the bag..

    Not so fast. Spieth is out of it. But Woods is now only 4 shots back, with 6 holes to go..

    Watching from NBC Golf Channel live stream here right now. That's the Tiger/Spieth pairing feed.

    Webb never lost his hold, but it was a little disappointing to see him double bogey 18, after such a dominant showing. Even still, congrats to him for his first win in years.

    As for Tiger, that was pretty encouraging. He looked like the Tiger of old. Sure he didn't fully realize the rally. But his final 2 days were really good. He looked like a completely different golfer from the first 2 days. He looked like he can finally compete on the main stage again. Was fun to watch.
