The Players Championship 2012 Leaderboard: Martin Laird In Position To Win

Former Colorado St. Rams golfer Martin Laird is back in position to win the 2012 Players Championship on Sunday evening. Currently, he is at 11-under, putting him in a dead tie with Matt Kuchar for the lead.

Laird made birdies on Holes 2, 7 and 9 before making the turn. He then shaved two more strokes off his score with birdies on Holes 11 and 12. Kuchar is at even-par for the day after eight holes.

Kevin Na led when the round began, but he's shot 2-over and is at 10-under for the tournament.

The best rounds of the day so far belong to Bob Estes and David Toms, who each shot 7-under. That is Toms' final score, too, while Estes is at 5-under.
