Ponte Vedra Beach:

Unlike Davis Love III, Adam Scott has a chance to redeem himself at The Players Championship. Scott shot a 10-over 82 in the third round on Saturday, making him the second player in two days to drop from the leaderboard to near the back of the pack. Love was a record-tying 18 shots worse between the first and second rounds and became the first player in the 33-year history of the US PGA Tour's showcase event to go from leading the field to missing the cut. Scott was slightly better, but only because he rebounded after shooting 45 on the front side of the Stadium Course at Sawgrass. The Australian started the day 7 under, one shot behind Jim Furyk, but carded a bogey or worse on nine of his first 11 holes. Scott really struggled on the par-4 fifth, hitting his second shot into thick rough left of the hole and then needing two chips to get on the green. He two-putted for his second double bogey of the day. He regrouped and played the final seven holes 1 under. Making his round more bearable was that he had his long locks trimmed on Friday night, ending a bet that would have forced him to shave his head because he shot 80. (AP)
