Despite Mother Nature doing her best to interrupt proceedings, Sunday will see the final round of action from the 2013 Players Championship in Florida.

Severe rain caused a two-hour delay on the third day which, when coupled with fading light, saw several players unable to finish their rounds. And whilst that might sound like bad news, the fact is that it means there's more golf to enjoy on the final round and further drama to watch out for.

Read on to see all the TV viewing details for the final round of action at TPC Sawgrass this year, as well as some of the key talking points to watch for for Sunday.

Key Talking Points to Watch For on Final Day


Can Tiger Woods Make Another Memorable Comeback?

Tiger Woods might not be in the lead heading into the final round of action, but he is certainly the biggest name worth watching for on Day 4.

Woods is currently in a tie for second and is two shots off the lead, but with part of his third round still to play, could well close that gap by the time the fourth round begins. And if that happens, then he really will be the big title threat to watch for on the last day.

Historically, Woods hasn't fared that well at TPC Sawgrass, which is a much more technical course and doesn't favor the big driving game that Woods possesses.

Yet despite that, he's definitely in the running heading into the final day. Could we be in for another memorable comeback from the World No. 1 as he storms to victory down the back nine, or are we in for a much closer affair as the players around him refuse to give in easily?

We'll soon find out.

 

 

Will the Phenom in David Lingmerth Hold On?

If you hadn't expected David Lingmerth to be a big player at the Players Championship this year, you'd have been forgiven for ruling out the Swedish international. However, after three rounds and some brilliant shot-making, Lingmerth is the two-shot leader at the moment.

The phenom has missed eight of his last 10 cuts and is only playing in the 13th tour event of his career. And yet here he is—leading the likes of Woods—heading into Day 4 of the tournament.

The biggest question it seems will be whether he can hang on or not.

The course at Sawgrass does favor shot-makers, but it can also turn on those players in an instant, with there being a fine line between success and failure. 

Lingmerth doesn't have the experience yet of knowing how to close out a big tournament, which could prove to be his downfall over the final round of action.

However, having said that, he has been very strong up until this point and should be tough to beat if he carries on as he's been playing so far—with a very high greens in regulation percentage and great shot selection for someone without a great deal of experience at a difficult course.

Can he hang on? We'll know soon enough.

 

 

Sleeper to Watch For: David Lynn, England

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

If you're looking for a sleeper to watch out for in the final round, look over at England's David Lynn, who will come into the last round at eight under.

Lynn's third round is complete—unlike some of the other players around him on the leaderboard—which means that his score won't change before the fourth round. The likes of Woods and Lingmerth, however, could well see their score changed depending on how they fare over the final few holes of their third round, with the final few holes not the easiest holes to start your day on.

Lynn shot four-under par in the third round and proved more than capable on the TPC Sawgrass course. He is in good form—as shown at the Wells Fargo Championship—and showed last year at the 2012 PGA Championship that he is more than capable of thriving on the biggest stage.

If he gets on a roll on the final day, he's definitely worth watching out for.

Especially if those around him drop shots over the final remaining holes of their third round, Lynn will be ready to pounce and make a bold run at the title.

Whether he'll get there or not still remains to be seen.
