Scottie Scheffler two shots clear at the Sawgrass Players Championship

Scottie Scheffler has a two-shot lead at the Players Championship at the end of Round 3 in Sawgrass.

Scheffler moved up to 14-under at 65, with Min Woo Lee just behind at 12-under.

American Tom Hodge set a new course record with 10 under 62.

England’s Tommy Fleetwood and Aaron Rai are five from the lead.

Rai hit a hole-in-one in 17th place, marking the first time the tournament had multiple hole-in-ones in the same week after Hayden Buckley made one in the first round.

Scheffler will return to world number one if he wins the title on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, Rory McIlroy failed to make the cut as the second round was finally completed on Saturday after storm delays.

The Northern Irishman missed the game by three shots after ending Friday’s second round with a one-over par 73 after a 76 in the first round.

“It’s just time management,” said McIlroy, who also organizes player-only meetings and serves as player director on the Tour Policy Board.

“The golfing out here, that’s fine, but it’s just more of the time at home to make sure you’re preparing, to make sure you’re doing everything you can to be ready when you show up for those weeks.

“Here I might have sacrificed a bit of time with some of these other things.”

Jerry Kelly became the oldest player to ever make the cut, with the 56-year-old American just about to make the final round. Scottie Scheffler two shots clear at the Sawgrass Players Championship
