In the final round at the Players, Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth are paired together on a Sunday for first time ever

May 13, 2018

Any good heavyweight fight deserves a solid undercard. And while Webb Simpson holds a commanding seven-shot lead and could very well breeze to the title Sunday at the Players, Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth should provide a fun opening act.

On Saturday Woods and Spieth shot matching seven-under 65s, and they will tee off together on Sunday at 2:05 p.m. For Woods, that 65 was a career-best round at TPC Sawgrass.

It’ll be the 10th time Woods and Spieth have been paired together, and this will be their first head-to-head clash on a Sunday. Their most recent pairing came earlier this year in the first two rounds at the Valspar Championship, where Woods beat Spieth by a total of nine shots over those 36 holes en route to a runner-up finish. But in their previous seven meetings, Spieth shot the lower round, save for one tie at the 2014 Quicken Loans National.

Four groups will tee off after Woods and Spieth, with Danny Lee joining Simpson in the final pairing. Here’s the full rundown of Sunday tee times:
