The Players Championship leaderboard: Scores, highlights from Round 3 at TPC Sawgrass

Day could become just the sixth multiple-time champion of this tournament since it moved to TPC Sawgrass in 1982 and the first to win two in a span of three years. His previous best scores were 66s in 2000 and 2001 - also during the third round.

Simpson was the seventh player to shoot 63, the last five since 2013.

"It was nice to see a few putts go in".

"Overall, the whole day had a lot of quality shots - 65 was probably as high as I could have shot, which is nice".

The effort kicked off a number of "first since" accolades: best score of the season, first 65 on Tour in almost three years and his lowest score to par since his most recent victory at the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. The leaders, paced by Webb Simpson at 15 under, are yet to tee off on moving day.

With soft conditions and smooth greens, 79 players made it to the weekend at one under or better. He then hit two flawless shots and two-putted for birdie on the par-5 9 for a front-nine 30 that sent a palpable jolt through Sawgrass.

Another opportunity passed at the par-5 16th, where Woods had just 225 yards to the pin but was between clubs and ended up hooking a 4-iron short in a bunker. Through two rounds he leads the field in putting and on Friday made 142 feet, 8 inches of putts.

The short 9.7km techincal course around the streets of Jerusalem promised to be hard and cause problems from the off. The young Frenchman sat in the hotseat for some time until one of the day's favourites rolled of the start ramp.

"It was just incredible, " said Spieth, who played with McIlroy and Thomas.

"He had control of his golf ball", said playing partner Mackenzie Hughes. Woods didn't disappoint him.

"If I can keep the right tempo going, I'm going to keep hitting good shots", said the 33-year-old, who has won only twice in 173 starts on the PGA Tour, most significantly the 2011 US Masters. "We were like, 'Man, I hope he shoots 59.' And at the same time, we're saying if he shoots 59, can you imagine how hard the setup is going to be tomorrow?"

Spieth finished strongly with three successive birdies at the end of his third round.

And it was welcome, given his struggles here of late and this year in general.

"Confidence is so big, and it can change the way you think", Simpson said. 10 to 15 feet today, and anywhere inside, which was probably the first time this year that's been the case, " Spieth said. "It had been a long time since I've really felt that and believed it".
