Webb Simpson got the job done today at the Players with an unflapperable one over round of 73 to beat Jason Dufner, Charl Schwartzel, Xander Schauffele and Jimmy Walker by four shots.

Tiger Woods is now 266th in the OWGR. That’s not his lowest ever, but the last time he was that low he was an amateur. He’s one place better than Max Orrin, a promising 21 year old from Margate who’s won twice on the Challenge Tour.
The fairy tale has slowly unwound. Local boy, Darren Clarke, who led the field off on Thursday in the 148th Open Championship, took seven at the last to miss the cut.

And our man, Gmac, held firm just making it through on the cut line, nine back from the leader.
I just placed a bet on the US Open. I got odds of just shy of 6/1 on one Mr Brooks Koepka. My heart is with Justin Rose and, if his amazing short game continues, he may well win but my head says that Koepka will come through to make history.
America’s Gary Woodland shot a 65 to take the lead in the US Open and join Justin Rose and Tiger Woods in the record books with the joint lowest score in a US Open at Pebble Beach. He leads England’s Justin Rose, who added a round of 70 to his own 65, by two shots as they go into the weekend.
England’s Justin Rose birdied the final three holes of his round to post a six under par 65 and lead the U.S. Open by one shot. One of GolfPunk’s tips, Ricky Fowler, sits in second place alongside his fellow countrymen, Xander Schauffele and Aaron Wise, and South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen. Rose’s round is the joint lowest ever shot at Pebble Beach in an U.S. Open.
