The number five was definitely wild at the 2018 Players Championship.

Not only did Webb Simpson pick up his fifth career PGA Tour win, he also snapped a five-year drought to do it in what is widely regarded as golf's fifth major tournament.

In this edition of 'Off The Tee', Joel Harrington from 4 Deep Golf and I talk about Simpson's dominating four-stroke win at Sawgrass and the putting tip that's having a huge impact on his game.

Joel and I also discuss:

  • Jason Day's T5 finish which included an injury scare
  • Tiger Woods' slow start and blistering weekend to finish T11
  • Justin Thomas' T11 finish was just good enough to end Dustin Johnson's 15-month reign at the top of the world golf rankings
  • A not so great showing for Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Hideki Matsuyama, and Phil Mickelson, who all missed the cut at the Players
  • A look ahead to next month's US Open at Shinnecock Hills in New York
