Player of the week
David Lingmerth. While most everyone else was focused on the battle royale brewing between Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia, or who would find the water at No. 17, Lingmerth quietly went about his business at the Players Championship. The obscure PGA Tour rookie came into the week ranked No. 162 in the world. He left it ranked 91st after his tie for second, and impressively handled the pressure of being in contention on the weekend in the tour’s signature event.
