Needing to make one miracle shot to stay in The Players Championship, Canadian golfer Ben Silverman faced a challenging situation. With play suspended on his final hole, Silverman had the opportunity to practice his shot the next morning before attempting the do-or-die shot. The 36-year-old spent the morning on the driving range with his wedge, aiming for a flag in preparation for the crucial shot. Despite his efforts, he fell short of the cut line and did not make it to the third round. Silverman, however, expressed no regrets and acknowledged that he did his best in the tournament. Other players also struggled to make the cut, including big names like Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth. Ultimately, Wyndham Clark took the lead heading into the third round of The Players Championship, with Xander Schauffele and Nick Taylor among the contenders chasing him.
