Most Players Dont Like to Look at the Leaderboard


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Hide and Sneak.
That's the little game so many PGA Tour pros play on Sundays.
They hide their eyes from the leaderboard and sneak around them.
Most players aren't like Tiger Woods, who likes to look at leaderboards but can't like what he's seeing today. Most players don't look, until near the very end, because looking at leaderboards takes them out of their rhythm, heightens pressure and gets them thinking ahead. They leave the leaderboards to their caddies should strategy need to be changed. On a day like today, though, it's hard not to look. That's because there are so many big boards at the TPC at Sawgrass Stadium Course and because so many players are bunched in contention. Eight players are within three of the lead on the back nine.
