Oosthuizen, Stanley share lead at Players Championship

"I felt like I was a little bit up in the clouds, and when I woke up, I was 4 over after six". "I didn't take them but I am in a great position".

Masters champion Sergio Garcia roared back into contention at The Players Championship, but it is J.B. Holmes and Kyle Stanley who will begin the final round top of the leaderboard.

Poulter, playing in the final group of the day, found his range with the putter and reeled off four birdies in six holes on the front nine before giving a shot back when he pulled his tee shot into trouble at the short eighth.

As conditions toughened at TPC Sawgrass, they played even better.

Oosthuizen carded a 73 and is alone in third place at 208 after a round that included three birdies and four bogeys. "I'm pretty disappointed", Holmes said.

Now he's here to stay for at least the next five years, and based on his game, probably much longer. He chalked that up to not being able to handle this strand of grass when it gets firm and crusty.

All week, the storyline used to help promote The Players has been the star-power of the champions it has produced, especially recently.

He also managed to take all the drama out of the final round, rare for this tournament and this golf course.

"There's just not really a moment where you can let up", Hughes said.

Yes, there were plenty of those. Later that day, Zac Blair made a 9 at the par-3 17th. He hit three shots into the water on the par-3 17th and made a 9. "The wind picked up on the back nine, so I thought it played more hard than the front", said Stanley. Garcia kept pecking away, and his 67 in the third round left him only four shots behind. "But I'm in a good spot for tomorrow, I'll come out tomorrow and see if I can shoot a number". I definitely feel like I got the most that I could have out of that round. That was rarely in doubt over the back nine.

Holmes, a four-times PGA Tour victor, found places at the TPC Sawgrass previously untrodden by man, yet somehow managed only one bogey in a two-under-par 70, on an afternoon that started breezy but fell calm over the final hour or so.

Poulter made 17 pars and a birdie, dropping his approach two feet from the cup and tapping in at the par-5 second. 2 and 12. Johnson rallied late with a 25-foot eagle putt on the 16th hole. On Thursday, the Stadium Course played 1.27 strokes easier (72.22-73.49) than in the afternoon wave. Pete Dye's design at TPC Sawgrass is a test that brings out the best from the game's best, but with a record number of balls in the water at 17 and numerous game's stars out of contention, the name of the game has been survival.

Jon Rahm of Spain went into the third round in a tie for 10th, just five shots behind.

"I'm rolling the ball really nicely and feel really confident on the greens", Oosthuizen said. "I just mis-hit it and it was pitched hole high right and spun back in the water".

And it showed that Oosthuizen and Stanley were at their best.

The Oklahoma men's tennis team advanced to the second round of the NCAA Championships, defeating Bryant 4-0 at the Headington Family Tennis Center in Norman.

Day, the former No. 1, is 2-under after shooting 72 Friday.

Northeastern State's Ebba Moberg and Baylee Price of Broken Arrow were selected by the Women's Golf Coaches Association as members of its All-Central Region first team on Friday.

OU faces Mississippi State at 11 a.m. Saturday. Moberg, a sophomore, earned All-Region accolades for first time.
