PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida — Martin Kaymer never lost sight of opportunity even amid so much evidence of trouble in the closing stretch at The Players Championship.

A bad chip led to double bogey. A bad decision cost him a chance at birdie. With his lead suddenly down to one shot, he watched his ball soar against the gray sky toward the scariest island in golf and figured it would be fine.

What followed was a bounce sideways instead of forward, mystifying spin that nearly sent his ball over the edge and into the drink, a chip with his feet pressed near the wooden frame of the island and a 30-foot par putt that Kaymer chalked up to instinct and luck.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — J.B. Holmes was a 3-foot putt away from winning the Wells Fargo Championship when he backed away to size up the situation.

This wasn't about pressure. He was just happy to be there.

AVONDALE, Louisiana — Seung-Yul Noh was in danger of losing his PGA Tour card late last season.

Now the 22-year-old South Korean is eligible for the Players Championship next month — not to mention next year's Masters — thanks to the nerve he showed in capturing his maiden tour triumph at the Zurich Classic.

Miguel Angel Jimenez meme

That "Dos Equis guy" has nothing on Miguel Angel Jimenez. In fact, the former is a Madison Avenue creation, while Jimenez is the real deal. He just won in his first Champions Tour start, last week's Greater Gwinnett Championship, and he also made plenty of noise at the Masters Tournament the previous week.
