Previewing The Players Championship; The field, course and predictions

Other changes were more cosmetic. I get excited when I make a long shot or hit a good putt.

"I feel like everything s exactly where it s meant to be, and if you feel like that off the golf course, then I can only imagine that it will help you on it".

First, he watched Masters champion Sergio Garcia hit a gap wedge that took one big hop, land just behind the cup and disappear for a hole-in-one.

McIlroy acknowledged that TPC Sawgrass presented a unique challenge to him before the tournament began. Sutton clinched it with a 6-iron that indeed was the "right club today".

"But I feel like the game is in really good shape, and getting a lot more confidence, especially after last week".

Day made the turn and his roll continued - he drained a 66-foot putt on No. 1 after his tee shot went into the trees. I've not finished the tournaments off strong. "It's not going to happen quickly with what Dustin's done over the past year or so", Fowler said. "So I thought I did a good job of letting it go and coming back with some birdies".

Sergio Garcia and McIlroy are playing for the first time since the Masters, and both showed up in a celebratory mood - Garcia because he has a green jacket he finally won at the Masters, McIlroy because he has a ring on his finger from his April 22 marriage.

"The feeling was great", he said. Anyone familiar with the Tiger Woods PGA Tour playstation games of the past will remember the fun of attempting to just hit the green on this hole will appreciate what an achievement this is.

What thrilled the Spaniard even more was the number on his card - 1. The new conditions, with changes to the 12 hole, may make it more hard.

Moon thanks Modi for congratulations in Korean language
According to government officials, Abe called for the construction of future-oriented relations between Japan and South Korea. Yoon said that President Moon highly evaluated India's participation in global sanctions against the North.

"It's unbelievable what a little bit of confidence will do", McGirt said.

Day will attempt to defend his title when the Players Championship tees off on Thursday at TPC Sawgrass with numerous best golfers in the world in attendance.

Garcia signed for a 73 which left him six shots off the pace set by American McGirt and Canada's Hughes, with Spain's Jon Rahm and Sweden's Alex Noren a shot further back with JB Holmes and Chez Reavie. He also revealed Thursday after opening with a 73 that he hasn't been practicing quite as hard so he can be cautious with his back. He tied a course record with a first-round 63 in his victory at the tournament past year and led wire-to-wire.

"I feel like I'm playing really well right now". Much like Justin, he had a great start with 5 top 2 finishes in his first 8 tournaments of this Fedex year. "Now, I'm in a rebuilding stage to try and get back to the top", he said.

Rickie Fowler hits from the sand on the 10th hole during the first round of The Players Championship golf tournament Thursday, May 11, 2017, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. - His ball having come to rest in a poorly raked bunker, Jordan Spieth pulled out his phone and took a picture of it so he could provide the evidence to the PGA Tour staff. He just didn't expect to be punished like this. "I dropped it into the worst lie you could imagine and I would have just chipped it out sideways into the water".

"Adam's shot wasn't that bad".

Sixth hole: Tee shot into the intermediate rough led to a missed par putt from seven feet.

Surprising? Hunter Mahan was in the hunt in 2013 when his tee shot on the 15th went into a tree and never came down.
