Simpson cruises to four-stroke victory at Players Championship

Webb Simpson hits from the second hole fairway during the third round of the The Players Championship golf tournament Saturday

This time, as Tiger Woods charged up the leaderboard at the Players Championship, a long overdue 80th PGA Tour victory really did look within reach.

"It was nice. I had control of it from tee to green; I made some putts; I felt good on basically every facet of the game".

The 2012 U.S. Open champion started his final round with a commanding seven-shot advantage, but it was not all plain sailing for the runaway leader at TPC Sawgrass.

"I played so well this weekend; unfortunately, I just didn't cash in", said Woods, who finished tied for 11th, seven shots behind eventual victor Simpson. "I liked it. So, thanks to Tim I started putting better a year ago". "Didn't know. But now I feel like I've got my playing feels and I'm playing tournament golf and I've got it".

Jordan Spieth, his playing partner Sunday, said: "He'll win sometime soon enough". He watched certain players crawl closer and closer to him but he never let it get to him.

The 42-year-old, who has already recorded T2nd and T5th finishes this year, spoke very highly of his game after his final round 69 and appears to genuinely believe that he can be a factor at the top of the game once more.

Woods began the day tied for eighth, 11 strokes behind Simpson.

So while the latest star in the generation he inspired ascends to No. 1, Tiger Woods can only hope to join the list of seemingly random PGA Tour winners in the coming months, fully completing a comeback where golf fans hope this week is that week. In the intervening years Simpson has toiled, partly on account of the ban on an anchored putting stroke which he used to great effect.

He is additionally endured private tragedy, just lately dropping his father and finest good friend Sam aged 74 following a battle with Parkinson's illness and Lewy Physique Dementia. But at the same time, that's a long time. "It's hard to put into words what this week has been like". "I thought I was going to have a hard time keeping it up top, and I spun it off the ridge. That was where we had most of our memories".

In the morning, Brooks Koepka (63), who also had the PLAYERS second-ever albatross on the 16th, showed low scorers were possible, but for anyone to make a bid, Simpson would also need to falter.

Precision was the key to his Mother's Day victory, having been last in the field for driving distance but first for driving accuracy. "I just didn't make it happen".

Additionally ending alongside Woods on 11 beneath was fellow American Justin Thomas, who leapfrogged Dustin Johnson to turn out to be world No. 1 for the primary time. I'm comfortable on the golf course. The 14-times major champion had started day four 11 off the lead. He is now up to 80th, with a stated aim of making it to the last World Golf Championships event at Firestone in August.
