Current time is 3:33 ET, and we are now about 2.5 hours into a rain delay in round three of the 2011 PLAYERS. The players are not on the course and several groups including the leaders have yet to even tee off. There’s currently no estimated time that play will resume.
Y.E. Yang was one of my top picks for the TPC this week. Sorry to ruin it for him as he missed his 3rd cut in a row.
Here are Yang’s comments below on the 3rd consecutive missed cut.
I totally agree.
Who missed and who made the cut at this year’s PLAYERS Championship? I’ve posted the Friday leader board below.
Some interesting names MISSED the cut like Tiger Woods (ok a WD), Padraig Harrington, Anthony Kim, former TPC winner Adam Scott, Gary Woodland, Y.E. Yang, Camilo Villegas, Ernie Els and Rickie Fowler.

I’ve been saving this one, my review of TPC Sawgrass, until the right time. Obviously the week of THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP is a great time to post it. This piece could shape up to be the longest one I’ve ever written and for good reason. There’s a lot to tell.
I was at the PGA Show Friday doing my thing, interviewing people and checking out all the gear. I was talking to Fuzzy Zoeller when my phone rang. Obviously when you are talking to Fuzzy Zoeller, whoever is calling can go to voicemail. When I checked the message it was my buddy Eddie from Black Mesa in New Mexico. His message, “Hey Tony we’re here at the show. Come over and visit us at the food court. We’re playing TPC Sawgrass tomorrow and we have an open spot. Did you bring your clubs?”
I had goose bumps. One second I was planning on a busy Saturday at the show, complete with interviews of Ian Poulter and Erica Blasberg. The next second I knew I was going to be blowing off Ian and Erica and playing one of those “must play” courses of a lifetime.
