Spieth to treat Players like a major

18 at TPC Sawgrass had a scoring average of 4.558 the year the PGA championship was played at Kiawah. The top six picks in the PGA Tour Fan Popularity Draft are packed into two groups! I just need to hit the back of the ball with a square clubface.

The next step is having a chance on Sunday. "I felt like I was just being stubborn, trying to hit driver where there's no point in hitting drive".

1/2 pt win Adam Hadwin 110/1: its coming up to two years since he won, but he loves this course. This week feels like a major event and I'm looking forward to challenging.

"As I look at the cover of the newspaper and the pairing is on there and the excitement that's been going on around here, it gets me thinking: Why don't we just bypass all the ancillary stuff of a tournament and just go head-to-head and just have kind of a high-stake, winner-take-all match", he said.

McIlroy is not alone in his struggles.

He did not make a bogey - he made a six-over 10 on that single hole and exited. He tied for fourth that year. I'm just so honoured to become the youngest champion. The best was tied 26th at the Genesis Open. He won't shrink on the Stadium Course's pressure-packed stage; he was T2 here a year ago.

The former world No. 1 also acknowledged that when he had his problems with chipping past year, prior to his back surgery, Mickelson reached out to him.

One huge surprise the model is calling for at the Players Championship 2018: Tiger Woods, a two-time champion, makes a strong run but falls short of winning the title. But the Players has plenty of electricity without oversaturating any one section of the course. This week features that 17th island green par-3, the one that caught Sergio against Tiger in 2013 and the one that gave Rickie the win in 2015. The Aussie won twice in three weeks during the spring of 2016, but hasn't won since, and this week plans to use the long putter without anchoring it.

McIlroy has a mixed record at Ponte Vedra, missing the cut on his first outing here in 2009 and again in 2010 and 2012. It's a trend he hopes to reverse starting this week on the Stadium Course greens. He has finished out of the top 20 in just over half his appearances, some of those when he was the most dominant player in golf.

Who'll win the US Open?

"It really is a total package golf course. We're all playing from basically the same spots off the tees with our approach shots".

"I didn't like it that much, [but] I like it a lot [now]", McIlroy said.

The purse has been raised to $11 million, with the victor getting just under $2 million for a week's work. As part of a major shift on the PGA Tour schedule for the 2018-19 season, the PGA Championship will move from August to May.

Paul McGinley and Butch Harmon evaluate the chances of an in-form Jason Day landing a second Players Championship title.

Dustin Johnson enters The Players Championship as the No. 1-ranked golfer in the Official World Golf Ranking.

First, they have to figure out Sawgrass. "I think that's what Pete Dye does so well". He will start off on the 10th tee with Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth.
