The Players Championship: Tee times, TV schedule for Sunday


After a Sunday morning finish to the third round, Tiger and Sergio hold a share of the lead. But unfortunately, the drama of their weekend pairing will end there as the two are split up for Sunday afternoon's final round.

The final round pairings are now set at The Players Championship, with the first groups going off just 35 minutes after the third round concluded first thing Sunday morning. The PGA Tour made the decision to re-pair the golfers for the fourth round because so many players were able to finish on Saturday night, and the leaders got so far into their round. So there was no need to keep the players together in rolling succession in order to get the final round in on Sunday.

Unfortunately, that means Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods will not play together again. The two finished Sunday morning with the same score, 11-under, but so did David Lingmerth. Thus, the Garcia-Woods group, whose drama has dominated the entire weekend at TPC Sawgrass, will be broken up and Sergio will go off in the final pairing of the day with Lingmerth. Sergio makes the last group because he had the honor on the tee on Saturday, holding the lead over Woods and getting the first tee shot. After the round, Garcia said it was for the best that the two be split up, but Tiger didn't seem to care too much either way.

Tiger will play with Casey Wittenberg one group ahead of Sergio, going off at 2:28 p.m. ET. While the conditions were perfect during Sunday morning's conclusion to the third round, there is still a 30 percent chance out there for more storms on Sunday. NBC, the traditional network partner at The Players, will have the coverage on Sunday afternoon beginning with their pregame show at 1:30 p.m. ET. The live coverage will then start at 2 p.m. and run until the last shot is hit, scheduled around 7 p.m. Here's the tee sheet for Sunday's final round:
