2012 Players Championship Leaderboard Recap: Matt Kuchar Takes Home Title

Matt Kuchar was able to fight off a host of charging golfers to take home the 2012 Players Championship title with a score of 13-under.

Kuchar entered the day one stroke back of Kevin Na, who fell off the pace Sunday. While Kuchar finished with a round of two-under on Sunday, he was chased by Martin Laird who used a Sunday round of five-under to contend with Kuchar for the title before coming up two strokes short at 11-under. Zach Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Ben Curtis also came close to reaching Kuchar, but also came up short at 11-under as well.

This is the fourth career win for the 33-year-old Kuchar, his first since winning The Barclays in 2010.

2012 Players Championship: Ian Poulter Still Leads, Big Names Starting Slow

Tiger Woods is flirting with another missed cut after a slow start at the 2012 Players Championship, but he's not the only big name having a tough day. While things aren't going poorly for the world's top-ranked players, none of them are surging up the leaderboard. All of Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson are at one-under par near the end of their front nine. Martin Kaymer, Luke Donald and Steve Stricker are all at even par, while Hunter Mahan is two-over.

The current leader of the tournament is Ian Poulter, who finished his round with an impressive seven-under 65. He's followed by Blake Adams at six-under, while Kevin Na and Ben Crane are five-under. The player with the biggest chance to make a surge up the leaderboard is Martin Laird, who is four-under through his first nine holes. Adam Scott, who is three-under through nine holes, is the biggest name within four strokes of Poulter.
