The Players Championship 2012: Matt Kuchar Holds Two Shot Lead Heading Into Final Hole

Matt Kuchar heads to the 18th and final hole of the 2012 edition of The Players Championship with a two shot lead after a birdie at No. 16 gave him just a little cushion but returned the stroke with a bogey at 17.

After hitting the water on No. 17 during the third round, Kuchar had no trouble on Sunday landing safely on the middle of the island green. However his first putt ran by the hole and he missed the par attempt coming back up the hill to record a bogey.

The birdie at No. 16 is big for Kuchar because of the charge that Rickie Fowler is making as he wraps up his round. Fowler finished up his day with birdies at 16 and 17 before lipping out a birdie attempt at 18.
