PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — He hasn’t finished better than 46th in any tournament this year, and doesn’t own a top-10 finish at the Players Championship since 2000. Oh, and Jeff Maggert is 49 years old.
But there Maggert was, signing for a third-round 66 on Saturday, his third straight under-par round on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. Even with a bogey at No. 18, Maggert’s 54-hole total of 9 under par was tied for fifth when play was suspended for the day. Everyone else around him — Sergio Garcia, Tiger Woods, Henrik Stenson, and leader David Lingmerth — was on the back nine when the horn blew.
