"I felt like I was just being stubborn, trying to hit driver where there's no point in hitting drive". "It's 90 degrees, but I can assure you I had some goose bumps and shivers at times out there".
Simpson's 15-under total of 129 equalled the 36-hole tournament record set by Jason Day in 2015 and gave him a five-shot lead over South African Charl Schwartzel (66), New Zealand's Danny Lee (66) and Patrick Cantlay (68).
Woods made the cut on the number at The Players Championship, but only after getting a little help from two of the top players in the world.
The real challenge will be catching Simpson.
Rolls-Royce Cullinan super luxury SUV revealed
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan shares its underpinnings with the new generation Phantom, underpinned by the same aluminium architecture. The Rolls-Royce of SUVs perfectly employs Phantom cues, from the raised hood to the strong shoulder line and coach doors.
But it was a tough day for McIlroy's playing partner Jordan Spieth, who found water three times on the back nine in a scrappy three-over 75, which could have been worse had it not been for an eagle at the 12th. All of them went on to win. Despite making six birdies over his first 16 holes, Lefty's week was unwound by eight bogeys and four double bogeys.
"I think I was flawless inside of 12, 15".
On Johnson, Bale added: "I really love watching Dustin Johnson play".
After he pulled a 288-yard drive left into the water, on the par-4 seventh, McIlroy chipped his fourth shot to 4 feet to limit the damage, and rolled in the bogey putt to move him to 1-over for the round. His first three tee shots flirted with trouble down the left-side of the course, and although he scrambled well a run of six straight pars wasn't the start he needed.
Hodges man faces charges in murder-for-hire investigation
Lecroy told the agent to use an untraceable 9mm handgun with two "clips", and offered the agent more jobs in the future. According to a federal complaint against him, Lecroy spoke with the undercover agent about the murder several times.
He actually headed to the 17th 11-under par for his round. I'm sure he was nervous playing that hole. On Saturday, all the pieces fell in place from the opening hole.
The 42-year-old has displayed patience, outwardly at least, knowing that even a player of his calibre needs some time to get back to near his best after missing so much time through injury. I think tomorrow is supposed to be the hottest day of the week, and if that's the case, again, the golf ball is going to be going forever. He shot a 1-under 71 to reach 1 under, earning a spot in the third round after some late cut movement. He was in the feature pairing with Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler, and Woods was the only one to make the cut.

Toure heaps praise on Sheik Mansour after final Man City home game
And the 34-year-old departed knowing that he had finally played a part in a season in which multiple records have been broken. He is the only guy last season who finished his contract who we extended because I thought he could help us.
Former world number one Spieth (68) and US PGA Championship victor Thomas (70) recovered from bad starts to stay alive in the field. Ryan Evans, the other overnight leader, had four bogeys in a round of 69 to slip a shot behind the top two.
