Players Championship 2013: Watch Live Stream Of Final Round Online For Free

By Staff Reporter, Posted: 05/12/13 08:02AM EDT

The final round of the 2013 Players Championship takes place on Sunday, shortly after the conclusion of the third round. NBC will begin its coverage at 1:30 p.m. ET, but if you want to catch the action before then, there are several ways to watch a live stream online for free.

Once again, the PGA Tour website will have coverage of featured players and holes starting before the NBC coverage. The website will follow the featured group of starting at 9:30 a.m. ET, and a live stream of holes 13 and 17 will begin at noon. You can also catch a live stream of the NBC Sports coverage of the 2013 Players Championship here.

Before you watch a live stream of the final round of the 2013 Players Championship online for free, here is a preview of Sunday's action.

Play was suspended twice in the third round of the 2013 Players Championship. As GolfChannel.com notes, the golfers were first called off the course at 4:09 p.m. ET because of incoming bad weather. The remaining groups were allowed to resume play about two hours later, but the last few pairings were unable to finish their rounds before play was suspended for darkness. Per PGATour.com, those groups continued their third round at 7:10 p.m. ET on Sunday, with the final round scheduled to begin at 8:35 a.m. ET.

As USA Today notes, relative unknown David Lingmerth leads the suspended 2013 Players Championship at 12-under par through 17 holes. The Swede is a rookie on the PGA Tour, and his only professional win came in last year's Neediest Kids Championship in the Web.com Tour. Lingmerth is two shots ahead of Sergio Garcia, Tiger Woods and Henrik Stenson.

Garcia and Woods, who were paired together for the third round, got through 14 holes before play was suspended. But the duo made headlines during the initial rain delay, when Garcia blamed Woods for his poor performance on the second hole.

As GolfChannel.com notes, Garcia hit his first shot on the par 5 into the fairway. However, his second shot then went into the trees, ultimately leading to a bogey. Garcia had a one stroke lead over Woods at the time, but Woods birdied the hole to briefly gain the outright lead in the 2013 Players Championship.

However, Garcia claims that a crowd of people surrounding Woods distracted the Spaniard before his ill-fated second shot.

"I wouldn't say he didn't see that I was ready, but you do have a feel when the other guy (Tiger) is going to hit," Garcia said. Right as I was on top of the backswing, he pulled a 5-wood or 3-wood out of the rough and, obviously, everybody started screaming, so that didn't help very much."

There is still some debate over just how accurate Garcia's version of events is. NBC did the moment in question during its coverage of the 2013 Players Championship. Yahoo Sports writer Shane Bacon agreed that Woods took his wood club out of his bag right as Garcia was going to hit the ball.

However, Bob Harig of ESPN argued that Woods removed the club before Garcia started his swing. Harig also noted that Woods likely could not have seen Garcia at the time, nor could Woods have known that taking a club out of his bag would create such a fuss in the crowd.

Woods, for his part, did not seem shocked that Garcia reacted the way he did during the 2013 Players Championship.

"Not real surprising he's complaining about something," Woods told GolfChannel.com.

He also told Associated Press that he had no idea Garcia had not yet hit his shot.

"The marshals, they told me he already hit, so I pulled a club and was getting ready to play my shot," Woods said.

Of course, these two golfers have feuded long before the 2013 Players Championship. As Fox Sports notes, Woods was angered in 2000 when Garcia beat him in a made-for-television exhibition but celebrated as if he had won a major event.
