TPC Sawgrass, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL — March 15, 2022

The stage is finally set. The third round of the Players Championship from the TPC Sawgrass is complete. The best golfers in the world will tee it up around noon today to finish the tournament that has been weather-delayed since its start on Thursday of last week.

The final threesome tees off at 1:01 pm and there are some surprises at the top of the leaderboard. Not the least of which is Anirban Lahiri, the 34-year old from Pune, India, seeking his first PGA Tour win.  Sebastián Muñoz, from Bogotá, Colombia, shot a seven-under-par 65 to move into a tie for second. Paul Casey shot his second consecutive 69 to join Muñoz, Doug Ghim, and second-round co-leader at eight under, one stroke off the lead.

The other co-leader on Saturday morning, Tom Hoge, is tied with Cameron Smith at seven-under just two strokes out of the lead. Louis Oosthuizen is one of six golfers tied for eighth at six-under.

Chances are an underdog is going to host the trophy later this afternoon as lesser-known players hold the positions most likely to make a run at the coveted Players Championship title.
