Sergio still buzzing over his Masters title ahead of Players

Rory Mc Ilroy will act as a groomsman for Sergio Garcia next month

Rory Mc Ilroy will act as a groomsman for Sergio Garcia next month

Rory McIlroy, the No. 2, shot 73, as did Jordan Spieth.

"Like I have said before, this is because they respect me", he said. "I feel like I'm still swinging the club well".

The other big story of the day is Adam Scott, who stepped to the 17th tee as the solo leader and then lost it with back-to-back double bogeys on the course's final two holes.

It was the second of his PGA career and it followed a second-round ace at the intimidating hole at last year's Players Championship by Willy Wilcox, which was the first since Miguel Angel Jimenez in 2002 (per ESPN).

After starting on the back nine, Day had birdied the 11th, 13th and 16th to reach the turn in 33, before holing from 65ft across the first green.

"And the support I get every year at The Open is just unbelievable".

Harrington was outstanding on punditry duties for the historic tournament, and while we'd love to see more from him in the role, we're sure he wants to focus on actually participating in big tournaments in the near future. Unfortunately I had a couple mistakes.

"I think I've been saying it, and I always say it, that I'm still the same person".

"The coolest thing would be the kick-off at El Clasico, for sure, as that was one of the most fantastic experiences
I've had", said Garcia, speaking on the eve of the Players Championship at Sawgrass, as he reflected on all the stuff he'd been up to over the past five weeks after finally landing his first major at the
74th attempt. The Spaniard triumphed at TPC Sawgrass in 2008 and was a runner-up in 2007 and 2015.

Trump Expected to Expand Laptop Ban to Flights From Europe, Officials Say
The airports affected include those in Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Morrroco, Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. If a ban is indeed coming, perhaps the DHS is giving airlines some time to prepare for such a hit to their operations.

The last time Sergio Garcia hit a ball in front of a crowd it travelled a mere 15 yards.

Garcia, 37, said he knew he hit "a good shot", but it could have gone "three yards past" the hole, or done "anything". "Got off to a awful start but managed to have a great finish and tomorrow I'll go out there a little calmer and get back into this tournament".

"My day is kind of summed up on the first hole when I one-hopped it into the flag, and it came off the green and I made bogey", Johnson said.

One can not spell perseverance without "Seve" and it added to the epic aspect of Garcia's triumph that it came on what would have been the 60th birthday of Seve Ballesteros, the Spanish legend who died of brain cancer in 2011 at age 54.

South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen and Francesco Molinari of Italy head a list of 11 players who shot 69 and are two strokes off the lead.

While it all started out with a laugh at Sergio's expense, Harrington was able to put his personal beef aside and analyse how and why this was Garcia's time, and when it emerged that both men were guests at Rory's wedding we were all wondering if they were going to bury the hatchet.

Bernhard Langer continues to marvel.

It's a tiny change, and a most appropriate one.
