TPC Sawgrass belonged to champion Webb Simpson, who brilliantly controlled this prestigious tournament, but it was Woods who dominated most conversations in the aftermath.

Simpson took a tournament-record seven-shot lead into the final round and marched to the victory as would-be challengers, including 14-time major champion Tiger Woods fell by the wayside.

But as the clamor grew in the galleries and the golf world drew breath, it wasn't to be.

However he came unstuck with a birdie at the 14th and a double bogey on the iconic par-three 17th which resulted in him dropping to 11th place.

"The way I was just coming back and just trying to get a feel for it and then hopefully have a schedule".

"It means everything; I love this golf tournament, " Simpson said.

Woods' playing partner on Sunday, Jordan Spieth, certainly expects to see the 42-year-old add to his haul of 79 PGA Tour titles.

Wait, Tiger Woods was in contention?

Here's a look at Simpson's entire equipment setup.

The North Carolina native also said he wished his father, Sam, who died past year after a battle with Parkinson's disease, could have witnessed an emotional fifth US Tour victory. The former anchor user was forced to give up his belly putter at the beginning of 2016 and spent time working with a conventional-length model before settling on the 44-inch long model.

Asked to reiterate if there is any doubts in his mind that he can start winning again, Wood said: "No, no". "It's hard to put into words what this week has been like".

"This summer is - there are some big events to be played, and one of my goals is to get into Akron, one last time, before we leave there".

Woods said Spieth's shot did not impact him, and it was simply the wind.

Rejuvenated Webb Simpson deserves all the plaudits and headlines he is receiving after holding his nerve to post a dominant victory at The Players Championship on Sunday.

Precision was the key to his Mother's Day victory, having been last in the field for driving distance but first for driving accuracy. Simpson picked up 2.432 strokes per round this week using an Odyssey Tank Cruiser V-Line Long (40.5 inches) putter with 7 degrees of loft to accommodate the forward press in the arm-lock method. "It's amusing how those things happen, but this is probably the first time I can say I'm glad they banned it, because I wouldn't have ever probably swayed away from the belly putter".

"I really wanted to do this for my mom", Simpson, who lost his dad past year, told Sands. You know, to win a major championship and a few other TOUR events. There was a moment Sunday when Simpson bogeyed and Woods was staring down a makeable birdie putt.

Another crucial event that turned Simpson's golfing life around took place a year ago this week, on the eve of the 2017 Players Championship when 2010 Players victor Tim Clark talked Simpson into using a claw grip on his putting.
