The Players Championship 2014: Adam Scott has the top of the world firmly in view

How the game could do with this four-horse race going all the way to the wire. It would be apt if a season which has so far been commanded by the supposedly lesser men is suddenly transformed by the supposedly better men staging an epic fight to replace the sidelined Woods as The Man. The […]
