2012 Players Championship: Television Hoping Golf Gods Change Something

The PGA Tour's so-called fifth major hasn't seen anything of note come out of the top-ranked players in the field on Thursday. The top of the leaderboard at The Players Championship is notably light on star power. Nine of the top-ten ranked golfers in the world are competing at TPC Sawgrass this week, and none of them are within five shots of the lead late on Thursday afternoon.

Ian Poulter's seven-under par score has held up for a while and looks likely to be the low score at the end of the day. Martin Laird has made an impressive charge, and he's six-under with one hole remaining. Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy are both one-under par, while Phil Mickelson is even par and Luke Donald is one-over par.

You can find a full Players' Championship leaderboard at Golf.com.
