Find Consistency Like Webb at Fairweather Golf, Camberley.
Webb Simpson Leader at The 2018 Players Championship. Consistency is the Key!
American Webb Simpson scored an amazing course record-equalling 63 to establish a five-shot halfway lead at 15-under in the Players Championship in Florida.
However, Webb Simpson looked set to post a new record after six successive birdies, but found the water when attacking the island green on 17 and posted a double bogey.
"You're at TPC Sawgrass, so you know trouble is everywhere," Simpson said.
Simpson, the 2012 US Open champion, had started the tournament by compiling an accomplished 66 but accelerated clear of the field with a stunning spurt on the back nine on Friday.
The 32-year-old was already five under for his round when he recorded the first of six consecutive birdies on the 11th.
"You start just kind of laughing," said Simpson, whose halfway score of 15-under matched the tournament record set by Day two years ago.
"Everything is going in. You feel like no matter what, you're going to make it. It's rare as a golfer where everything comes together."
Simpson was 11 under for the day when he stepped on to the 17th tee but his pushed tee shot on Sawgrass' signature hole clattered against a railway sleeper and ended up in the water.
"I was in between clubs," he explained. "I tried to smash a sand wedge and blocked it a little bit. It's a bit of a bummer."
Simpson righted himself to par the last and equal the 63 previously shot by Fred Couples, Greg Norman, Robert Castro, Martin Kaymer, Day and Colt Knost.
