Goydos still adored at The Players


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Paul Goydos was swarmed by adoring fans leaving the 18th green after his practice round Tuesday at The Players Championship.

Goydos, however, says his second-place finish at The Players three years ago no longer ranks as the achievement that gained him the most acclaim.

“I get more notoriety for shooting 59 than I did not winning here,” said Goydos, a two-time PGA Tour winner. “So my wins have actually been bumped to third or fourth on the list.”

Goydos shot 59 in the first round of the John Deere Classic last year.
