McIlroy to undergo test on troublesome back

It was a similarly frustrating day for 2004 victor at TPC Sawgrass, Adam Scott, who was outright leader on six under par with two to play but then found water on both of the final two holes, double-bogeying both.

J.B. Holmes will sleep on the lead Saturday night, as he fired a two-under-par 70 that allowed him to get to nine under par through three rounds at this challenging golf course.

Kyle Stanley was able to keep his hold on the lead with an even-par 72 on Saturday.

The 37-year-old was still four over with three holes to play on Thursday, but he followed a birdie on the 16th by recording a hole-in-one on the famous "island green" 17th to salvage an opening 73.

The goal in having so many cameras on one hole is to ensure that, no matter where the ball lands - on the green or in the water - NBC has a clear shot. To go sideways, with fairways that fast, meant risking the ball going into the water. The presumptive NBA Finals participant has been sitting around for almost a week now as its potential opponents bashed each other's brains in, but now it's back to business.

Graeme McDowell will start his final round on one over following a disappointing 74 on Saturday. If not for the tournament itself, the 17th at TPC Sawgrass provided its usual fireworks this week.

Hughes' round was much more conventional, with five birdies and no bogeys on his card thanks to a scrambling par from the trees on the closing hole.

However, with blustery winds making scoring hard on Saturday, the 2008 champion surged up the leaderboard with a third round of 67 to lie two shots off the clubhouse lead held by Korea's Si Woo Kim.

Barber made a three-putt bogey in round one and found water en route to a double in round two.

Larsson leads Oilers past Ducks 5-3 in wild series opener
During the regular season, Draisaitl was the best player on the Oilers against the Ducks . "Let's go meet Cam", Gretzky said. Still, I can't see Anaheim falling down 3-0 in this series so I have to take the road underdogs in this one.

Korea's Si Woo Kim is alone in fourth at seven under, while Spain's reigning Masters champion and 2008 Players victor Garcia is lurking at five under. He was asked if he had his ceremonial green jacket with him.

Garcia rolled in a 17-foot putt on the 16th for an eagle, and that was the key hole in his round.

"I thought I handled (the situation) pretty well", he said. Tiger Woods (2001, 2013), Davis Love III (2003, 1992), Elkington (1991, 1997), Hal Sutton (1983, 2000), Fred Couples (1984, 1996) and Jack Nicklaus (1974, 1976 and 1978) are golfers with multiple wins at The Players Championship.

Garcia was playing in the same group as Adam Scott.

Louis Oosthuizen saved par on the 18th for a 73 and was one shot behind. He will play the next two weeks as the Tour moves closer to home in Dallas and Fort Worth.

Round 2 tees off at 7:10 a.m.

South Korea's Kim Si-Woo was fourth on 209 after a 68 with Grillo and Britain's Ian Poulter on 210 and Garcia sharing seventh on 211 with American Patrick Cantlay and Swede Alex Noren.

He made par on the 18th - his ninth hole of the day - to go out in 40 strokes and appear destined to miss the cut.

And it showed that Oosthuizen and Stanley were at their best. Look for that to happen.
