TPC Sawgrass (Stadium Course)
Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. 

On the leaderboard at THE PLAYERS
Brandel Chamblee – “This leaderboard is as democratic as the United Nations. You’ve got players on there who are really long like J.B. Holmes and players who are really short like David Hearn. You’ve got players who it wasn’t that long ago were in the ball pit at McDonald’s, and then you’ve got players who are probably getting mail from the AARP.”

On Louis Oosthuizen (9-under, T-1st)
Frank Nobilo – “He’s like Adam Scott in that he’s able to make the game look so easy… His bunker play so far has been marvelous, five for five.”
David Duval – “When he’s engaged like he is at these big events, he shows up. You throw in that length that he does have if the golf course softens up and he’s looking good right now as a front runner.” 

On Kyle Stanley (9-under, T-1st)
Nobilo – “This is a loud man’s game in some respects. And he’s a very quiet guy inside. So he’s almost had to fight his personality… He’s only 5’ 11”, but the swing looks bigger than the build.”
Duval – “These guys are not ever particularly far off, but sometimes it might take a little bit longer for them to get back to exactly where they want to be. And he’s looking like he’s there.”
Chamblee – “He went out there today and put on a clinic with his irons.” 

On Vijay Singh (6-under, 4th)
Chamblee – “I think Tiger Woods made Vijay Singh a better player. To look at what Vijay did in his 40s, he won more than Snead, more than Kenny Perry… And if Vijay Singh can break through and win he would establish the record as the oldest winner.”
