Unfortunately for him, Simpson looks like he's playing an entirely different event.
"He can't get from the putting green to the range without getting stopped a few times", said Simpson, whose 9-under 63 performance has only been matched six other times in tournament history. "Everything is going in".
Golf can make you laugh. I was three under before reaching 17 and hit a poor shot there. And it's rare as a golfer where everything is working well. It's just a matter of playing and executing.
Simpson's shot on 17 rolled to within three feet of the cup, and he knocked home the birdie putt without any problem.
Despite his position, Simpson said he saw room for improvement.
France Condemns United States Over Iran Sanctions
Meanwhile, the annual inflation rate in the US edged up to 2.5 percent in April from 2.4 in March, matching market expectations. Turkey engaged in intense diplomacy and managed to convince Tehran to sit around the table to reach a nuclear agreement.
"Just the wrong club", he said.
But at the par-three 17th, where he took a double-bogey after finding the water on Friday, Simpson brought a huge crowd to their feet in sinking a three-footer for birdie that moved him back to 19-under.
It would have been understandable had the 36-hole leader faltered on Saturday; sleeping with the lead is notoriously hard. But I hit into the water on 16, from where I made a good par save and then went into water again on 17.
Congo Faces Another Ebola Outbreak After 18 Die, 2 Cases Confirmed
It has been revealed that over 80 per cent of the population will be needed to get immunised to prevent outbreak of the disease. WHO will also work with national authorities in planning further public health measures such as vaccination campaigns.
The chase pack is led by Danny Lee, who played perhaps the quietest round of the day - two birdies and 16 pars - to post 12 under.
"I finally got off to a good start, " said Tiger Woods after shooting his best round of the year and his best ever at the TPC Sawgrass Stadium course, a 7-under-par 65 that vaulted him from the cut line into the top 10 when his round was complete.
But Rory McIlroy, who was on level par for the tournament through 15 holes of his second round, still had work to do to be sure of his place in the weekend's field.
Some member's bounces have certainly gone Simpson's way this week, but his statistical dominance is every bit as impressive as those red numbers on the leaderboard.
In one, Thomas, McIlroy and Jordan Spieth will go off; three young players who, for all the major titles they've won, have been unable to finish top of the pile at The Players. "We have to figure out a way to put it together and I have not done that consistently this year so far". "We were like, 'Man, I hope he shoots 59.' And at the same time, we're saying if he shoots 59, can you imagine how hard the setup is going to be tomorrow?" "I've just got to keep going and take my chances when I can". "On Sunday, you've got to give this course a little more respect", he said. He was tied fifth at Wells Fargo and played some tremendous golf over the course of the weekend. "It was unfortunate, to be honest". Feel like I'm putting well.
