McIlroy holds off Furyk to win Players
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) His best swing was followed by his biggest drive, both setting up birdies, and from there Rory McIlroy knew how to finish.
Suddenly staked to a one-shot lead, McIlroy had a 125-yard walk along the water to the 17th hole to face an island that never looks smaller than on Sunday at The Players Championship, followed by the toughest hole on the TPC Sawgrass with water down the entire left side.
"Just make three more good swings ... and this thing is yours," McIlroy kept telling himself.
