The Players Championship 2012 Leaderboard: Martin Laird Falls 5 Strokes Behind

Martin Laird's run at the top of the 2012 Players Championship hasn't quite died yet, but it isn't fully resuscitated yet, either. Through his first nine holes, Laird sits at 5-under after nine holes, putting him five strokes behind leader Rickie Fowler.

Laird started the day at 6-under and made his first bogey of the round on Hole No. 3. He had two more bogeys on Holes 5 and 7, but he squeezed in a birdie on Hole No. 6. He finished the ninth hole with a birdie on the par-5 challenge.

Rickie Fowler has fired off a 7-under for the round to take a 10-under overall. Matt Kuchar and Kevin Na trail by one stroke each.
