Kuchar in contention again

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- No defending champion has ever successfully defended at THE PLAYERS Championship.

Matt Kuchar will have a chance to change that this weekend. He shot 66 Friday to get to 7 under at TPC Sawgrass, where he's four strokes off the lead.

"You've just got to be playing good golf, whether it's past champions or not," Kuchar said. "Course knowledge only helps when you're playing good golf."

Kuchar did that Friday, making seven birdies and just one bogey while taking just 25 putts.

Added Kuchar: "I think past champions always have a good feeling around a course they've won on, and that certainly helps out."
