Rory McIlroy eyes Masters glory after getting back on title-winning trail

Rory McIlroy unleashes over 'epidemic' ruining the PGA Tour

Rahm was at 15-under 201. After shooting a 1-under 71 on a blustery Thursday afternoon, Furyk played in calmer conditions on Friday morning and shot a course-best 8-under 64, making eight birdies and 10 pars.

After one year at junior college, Ancer transferred to the University of Oklahoma where he continued to produce at a high level on the golf course.

They shared the lead at 12-under 132, three shots clear of anyone else.

After four holes on Sunday at the Players Championship, it looked like another week of so close but oh-so-far for Rory McIlroy.

Given the nature of this golf course - and a forecast for a different wind - the fun might just be starting.

The Florida spectator was informed not to move and was still sitting there with a "what am I do" look on her face when McIlroy and caddy, Harry Diamond arrived to size-up the situation.

"I'll just keep doing the same thing", said McIlroy. At lunchtime on Sunday, I was having lunch and the Golf Channel was on.

The biggest surprise from the group three shots behind might be the 48-year-old Furyk, mainly because he didn't think he would be at Sawgrass. After all, this is a guy who rattled off five worldwide wins in 2012 and bagged a pair of majors two years later.

He fought though some uneasy setups and swings early in the final round to stay in contention.

The supremely talented and long-hitting 29-year-old said he has never been more consistent and that has only come with balance in his life. "I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm confident in the path I'm on". "It's a nice gift, an opportunity". That group included Brandt Snedeker (65) and Keegan Bradley (68), and Dustin Johnson, the No. 1 player in the world who played the par 5s at even and still shot a 69.

Rory McIlroy unleashes over 'epidemic' ruining the PGA Tour

That nothing around McIlroy is ever linear was endorsed once more on Sunday.

McIlroy had last won at the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, from the penultimate pairing.

But he has been patient.

"There's a little disappointment, thinking maybe I played well enough to win", said the American. There is no sense of panic or a need to start pressing if he gets into that position again.

"I'm just really proud of myself the way I played the last few holes", he said. I've actually got an interior design meeting tomorrow morning to pick out some stuff for our new house, so that's the next port of call.

"I don't know if I like the word confidence". The ball bounced onto the green to 10 feet for birdie.

But McIlroy bounced back from a bogey at the 14th to birdie the 15th. "I'd let what I shot that day influence who I was or my mood, and to try and keep those two things very separate is something I've worked hard".

That would be Phil Mickelson, who didn't play very inspired, at all. He was still in the game until he failed to birdie the 16th, and then put his tee shot in the water on the 17th. Although none of his final rounds was awful - he shot 72 a week ago in the final round at Bay Hill - he was coming up short.

This felt just as good, perhaps because of his standing in the tournament.

At the 237-yard par-3 eighth, Rahm hit a tee shot 205 yards at the green, setting himself up for the 13-foot putt for birdie. "I had the absolute dream start". "When you reflect on the week, you have to reflect on the 72 holes and not just the last two holes you played, and every time I reflected on the 72 I've played, I've been pretty happy".
