The Players: Louis Oosthuizen tied for lead as Vijay Singh stars

David Hearn of Canada follows his shot on the 14th green during the second round of The Players Championship golf tournament Friday

"I just got a little off yesterday and came back today and hit the ball well", said Spieth, who has missed the cut here each of the past three years.

The culprit, as if the TPC Sawgrass isn't enough, was a wind so treacherous that only one player who teed off after 11:30 a.m. broke 70.

"And then going into this year, I've just tried to do everything that I can control, preparation-wise, off the golf course, and stuff like that". He shot 82 and was headed home after missing the 54-hole cut.

Defending champion Jason Day, chasing his first win since his four-shot triumph at Sawgrass 12 months ago, fired an erratic 72 to remain on two under alongside the likes of Henrik Stenson (70) and Phil Mickelson (72).

Holmes started the day one shot off the lead, and he opened with a nondescript run of 10 straight pars. American Jim Furyk, Marc Leishman of Australia, Bernhard Langer of Germany and Ernie Els of South Africa also failed to get into weekend play.

"Yeah, we're in a pretty good spot going into this weekend". It's a great three finishing holes, and you need to be on your game.

Oosthuizen plotted his way expertly around the revamped layout, getting into his stride with two birdies over his first four holes and adding another from 10 feet at the 17th - his eighth.

The way the TPC Sawgrass played Saturday, with a relentless wind and trouble at every turn, the final round has plenty of possibilities. Vijay Singh's 4-under 68 was almost flawless until a bogey at the 18th dropped him to 6-under for the tournament and into fourth place.

Holmes, a four-times PGA Tour victor, found places at the TPC Sawgrass previously untrodden by man, yet somehow managed only one bogey in a two-under-par 70, on an afternoon that started breezy but fell calm over the final hour or so.

So many others wish they could have done the same.

Fiji's three-time major victor Vijay Singh, 54, is fourth on six under. He saved par from the back bunker on the 18th hole on the Players Stadium Course for a 72.

That goes for Dustin Johnson, the world No. 1, who looked as though he might have a chance to at least get in the mix until tiny mistakes led to bogeys, and a big mistake led to double bogey on the 16th hole. "It was very tough out there".

Kim birdied the par-5 second and ninth holes, began the back nine with another birdie had a tap-in birdie at 12.

The large group on level par includes a host of star names and former Players champions, while the likes of McIlroy, Garcia, Johnson, Martin Kaymer and Rickie Fowler all hoping to mount an early charge on moving day. Sweden's Alex Noren shot a 1-under 71 and sits in a tie for fifth at 5-under. "It doesn't matter how good you're feeling, you have to play really well", Grillo said.

As Oosthuizen explained, the path he took to The Players Championship is no different than any tournament he has played in.

"Any time you win it gives you that little bit more lift, and I needed a lift like that", he said.

"Everyone who's won one, you want to try and win a second", Oosthuizen said.

Singh would surpass Sam Snead, who was 52 when he won the 1965 Greater Greensboro Open, as the oldest victor in PGA Tour history if he were to claim a first victory since 2008.
