The Players Championship Leaderboard Update
The PGA Tour carries on at Sawgrass. The Players Championship Leaderboard is on everyone’s radar today. Since the implications of this tournament are huge for both Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods along with a host of other players, all eyes are peeled to see if someone can pull off a big move this weekend. No one expected that someone to be J.B. Holmes.
Thus far, J.B. Holmes leads The Players Championship Leaderboard through the first round. With a finish today of 6-under par, he deserves all the attention that every sports fan can afford him. He managed to escape without a single bogey, put in six birdies and hit par the rest of the way. If he can pull off even one more round like this, Holmes could steal everyone’s thunder.
The winner’s share of the purse is almost two million dollars. And, for a player like J.B. Holmes who just happens to be atop The Players Championship Leaderboard right now, that’s one highly coveted purse. Golf fans everywhere call Holmes’s finish amazing. The rest of the golf world has to be looking around asking, Tiger who?
