Players Championship 2021: Projected Pairings, Predictions for Saturday

For the second straight week, Lee Westwood has put himself in a great position to win a marquee PGA Tour event.

The 47-year-old Englishman holds the 36-hole lead at The Players Championship one week after taking third at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Westwood was one of seven players to record a 67 or better at TPC Sawgrass on Friday.

Chris Kirk, who enters Saturday in third place, tied Sergio Garcia's first-round 65 as the best score of the tournament, but now he has to follow that up with another strong round with countless contenders lurking beneath him and Garcia.
