Spieth makes first Players cut since 2014

Spieth makes first Players cut since 2014

Rory McIlroy believes he is finally ready to win one of the few big titles so far missing from his glittering CV after learning that life really is a beach when it comes to the Players Championship. Ultimately, 1 under made it, meaning he will be around for the weekend, unlike the other members in his high-voltage threesome, Rickie Fowler (1 over) and Phil Mickelson (8 over).

On day two at golf's unofficial fifth major, Simpson emerged as a runaway leader courtesy of a course record-equalling nine-under-par 63.

First contested in 1974 as the brainchild of PGA Tour commissioner Deane Beman, the original Tournament Players Championship was the tour's foray into the high stratosphere world of golf's major championships.

Tiger Woods said this week he saw a lot of his own game in Day, with the ability to win without bringing his best golf. "You know, when I was trying to deal with the nerve in my back and trying to come back and trying to play and I wasn't very good, he always texted me some very encouraging words".

Patrick Cantlay (68), South African Charl Schwartzel and New Zealander Danny Lee (both 66) were a distant second on 10-under, while Tiger Woods (71), at one-under 143, made the cut with nothing to spare, as did Jordan Spieth (68) and Justin Thomas (70).

"I mean, I'm 15 under through two days here, which is a lot lower than I ever would have expected to be", he said after the second round.

The leader of the list became known to British singer Adele , her condition is charged more than $190 million. However, in the past year, he's increased his wealth by the highest margin, a whopping $38 million.

But McIlroy littered his card with four bogeys and needed to par the last two holes to survive, and his hopes were scuppered when his tee shot to 17 pitched on the front bank and rolled back into the water which led to a double-bogey. Henrik Stenson has a win in 2009 to go with his excellent recent form of three straight Top-10's.

Day, asked to assess his game after a round that included five birdies, said he was playing with confidence. "You still have to play defensive around here whether you're five back or five ahead". "I don't think any lead is safe". Thomas is tied for 86th after one round of play, shooting a 1-over par 73 in the first round. I've won out here numerous times not playing well but found a way to score and get the job done.

Day's countryman Marc Leishman was two shots back at one under after a bogey at the hard par-four 18th gave the Victorian a 71.

Mickelson, like Matsuyama, had opened with a 79, admitting his battle for a share of fifth at Quail Hollow last week had left him exhausted.

The 2012 US Open champion drained three from close to 20 feet on 12, 13 and 14 before holing out from off the green at the next, his ball hitting the cup at pace and dropping.

Martin Laird of Scotland also finished the opening day level, two shots ahead of compatriot Russell Knox.
