No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass doesn't faze Hadwin ahead of Players Championship

"My back feels a lot better", Day told Golf Digest after playing 18 holes. Sunny skies are expected on Thursday and Friday, but off-and-on showers are in the weather forecast, so Mother Nature could play a role. Past champions like Tiger Woods (25-1), Rickie Fowler (22-1), and Jason Day (35-1) are also in the field. "So, I've tried to play more in the conservative side to try and put it in play, even though I'm a little further back".

The 12-time PGA Tour victor admits it is tempting to respond to criticism but is why he rarely checks the social media accounts ran by his team. The model has been spot-on early in the 2018-19 season.

McIlroy also finished second to Johnson at the WGC-Mexico Championship, continuing a steady run that has also featured a fourth-place performance at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and a fifth-place finish at the Farmers Insurance Open. Anyone who has followed the model is up huge.

A T13 at the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft Nabisco put him at No. 13 on The Finals 25, which provides the victor a fully exempt card for the upcoming season and a guaranteed spot in THE PLAYERS Championship.

The pair were captured on television cameras with Woods going through putting drills and Killen analysing the 14-time major winner's putting stroke closely.

Woods will try to do exactly that and join Jack Nicklaus as the only three-time winners of The Players.

Woods will tee off his first round alongside defending Players champ Webb Simpson and reigning Masters champion Patrick Reed at 1:27 p.m. EST.

Of course, no preview of TPC Sawgrass would be complete without mentioning the famous Hole 17. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday.

The trick going forward for Woods is to make sure the soreness that caused him to withdraw from the Arnold Palmer Invitational doesn't keep him from missing more tournaments the rest of his injury-filled career.

He believes a maiden PGA Tour win is within his grasp. He has five other top-10s at TPC Sawgrass, including runner-up finishes in 2007 and 2015. He ranks 12th on tour with an average of 310.2 yards per drive. The purse for this year is a record $12.5 million, with $2.25 million allocated for the victor.

The Australian has started 2019 in good form, putting himself in contention twice to end his two-year winless drought.

Justin Thomas (+1600): For my money, Justin Thomas is the best golfer in the world at the moment, and he should be the favourite nearly every weekend. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big.

After pledging to play more in North America this year, McIlroy has been knocking on the door for a title almost every week he's teed it up. And which long shots stun the golfing world?

Unlike other professional sports leagues, such as the NFL and National Basketball Association, which have their own rules that differ from how the game is played at other levels, the various professional tours have always adhered to the Rules of Golf.
