Hot afternoon at The Players has Charl Schwartzel, Patrick Cantlay leading

Mackenzie Hughes of Canada plays his tee shot on the par 5 16th hole watched by his playing partner Tiger Woods Hot afternoon at The Players has Charl Schwartzel, Patrick Cantlay leading

Webb Simpson was able to create some separation atop a jam-packed leaderboard at The Players Championship with a course-record 9-under 63 during Friday's Round 2. Thomas, continuing to chase that No. 1 world ranking, has 13 consecutive Top-25 finishes with two wins and two runners-up in that span. McIlroy has three Top-10's at this tournament and is in form.

"I put myself in the final group of the first major of the year and it didn't quite work out but if I can put myself in the final group of some other events coming up, then I'll have some recent experience and hopefully I'll deal with it a bit better".

"I liked my score in the first round, but I can hit it better", Kim said.

Anirban was even par on Friday a year ago, as he walked up to the 18th tee box. But they'll all be chasing Simpson, who has spent the past two days evoking a four-letter word that might make tournament officials cringe: easy. He was so upset he dropped his ball and whacked it into the water on a hop. "That's what I'm looking forward to here".

"I want to think that I'm trending in the right direction". Not good, right? While many players would be thrown off their game that early, Spieth did what he always seems to do. A good run this week will go a long way in helping Anirban stem the slide and secure his presence in the major events that lay in store over the next few months.

Another record-setting day at The Players.

Fourteen-time major victor Tiger Woods (71) finished on the cut line at one under, as did world number two Justin Thomas (70) and world number four Jordan Spieth (68). The site of last year's PGA Championship and the 2021 President's Cup played every bit like the major championship caliber course that it is. (AP) - Rory McIlroy didn't break par until his fourth time at The Players Championship. The Stadium Course has a history of not favoring any one style of play, and the list of winners at the PGA Tour's premier event illustrates that, going from Greg Norman to Lee Janzen, from Tiger Woods to Craig Perks, from Henrik Stenson to Tim Clark.

Woods was resilient at Wells Fargo before a disappointing final round pushed him down to T-55.

Jordan Spieth struggled in posting a shock three-over 75 that included a 12th hole eagle promptly followed by a double-bogey at the very next hole.

The four-time major champion has learned to love the TPC Sawgrass - "learned to like", he quickly clarified with a smile - and he has taken small steps toward contention. Managing iron distance and landing in the right spots on the green is critical, placing a premium on club selection and smart execution.

"The venue is wonderful and the golf course is really nice". And then there is plenty of water in play, as Anirban realised to his dismay past year. He comes in with the same odds as Rickie Fowler, who won here in 2015 and finished runner-up in 2012 but has disappeared in his other appearances.
