PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLORIDA – Martin Kaymer and Jordan Spieth are having a blast at The Players Championship — one because he’s playing good golf again, the other because that’s all he’s been doing.
Kaymer followed his record-tying 63 on the Stadium Course on the TPC Sawgrass with a 3-under 69, capping off his round by hitting a pitching wedge to 3 feet on an island green with a back pin on the 17th hole.
He had a one-shot lead going into the weekend as he tries to end more than two years without a victory.
“Everything is coming together nicely,” said Kaymer, a former PGA champion and world No. 1.
