Na Takes 1-Stroke Lead Into Players’ Final Round; Woods 10 Back

May 13 (Bloomberg) -- Kevin Na takes a one-stroke lead into today’s final round of the U.S. PGA Tour’s Players Championship, while Tiger Woods trails by 10.

Following a round of 4-under-par 68 yesterday, Na stood 12-under at 204 after 54 holes in the tournament at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. He birdied two of the last three holes to take the lead over Matt Kuchar, who shot a 69 that put him one stroke back at 11-under 205.

“I know how to play under pressure,” Na said. “I’ve won before. I’ve been in situations like this. I’ve got to take everything I’ve learned and do my best.”

Rickie Fowler was third at 9-under 207 after shooting a 66, while Woods was at 2-under 214 following an even-par round.

Woods had two birdies and two bogeys yesterday. He made four straight birdies in the second round to avoid missing a second straight cut after failing to qualify for weekend play at last week’s Wells Fargo Championship.

“I played well today and didn’t get anything out of that round,” Woods told reporters. “It was probably the most solid I’ve hit the golf ball all year, actually. Even though I hit a couple off line, they were just hit dead flush. I just got nothing out of the round.”
