Sergio Garcia gets on a roll and finishes a stroke ahead of Tiger Woods at Sawgrass

Sergio Garcia must have been inspired once he saw Tiger Woods in the lead at The Players Championship.

Garcia ran off five straight birdies Friday, then added a 40-foot birdie putt on the par-3 eighth hole for a 7-under 65. That gave him a one-shot lead over Woods among the early starters at TPC Sawgrass. He was at 11-under 133.

Woods played right behind Garcia. He tied for the lead with a 20-foot eagle putt at No. 2, and took the outright lead — just briefly — with a short birdie on the fourth hole. Woods made a birdie on his final hole for a second straight 67. That's six shots better than his previous best start at Sawgrass.

Roberto Castro, who opened with a 63, played in the afternoon.
