PGA Tour Picks: Players Championship

(In May), the ball's rolling, ball's flying, it's usually dry. "So a little bit different".

The victor at TPC Sawgrass this week will take home $2.25m, the highest-ever winner's cheque in professional tournament golf, and Johnson says the event, which has been moved back to March for the first time since 2006, is already a major championship in many players' minds. He used the word "pliable" three times during his news conference at The Players Championship. Check in for highlights from every tournament plus player interviews, player profiles, tournament previews, swing analysis and all the greatest shots and fantastic moments.

Woods said such strains will be part of the bargain going forward while continuing his career after spinal fusion surgery in his lower back. "I feel good. I needed last week off".

Former world number one Jason Day is cautiously optimistic his back problems will not flair up and hamper his challenge at this week's Players Championship in Florida.

"I'm not saying Brooks doesn't hit it straight, but fairways are generally wider the last couple years and a bomber should have won".

Simpson came in 18 under par after four rounds to win the Players a year ago. "But it's not the best course for me".

The 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass may be the most famous hole in golf, the famous. or "infamous" ... island green that annually makes or breaks THE PLAYERS Championship, which is being held in March this year instead of May ... which will trick up the 17th a little more than usual.

North Korea Leader Kim Says Ready To Denuclearise
He secured Trump's support for the opening of a liaison office in Pyongyang, without offering any concessions of his own. Trump added that he still believes the country still has "huge potential" and he'd like to "keep the relationship".


See how Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray measured in at National Football League combine
Those are great numbers for him considering many were anxious he was going to check in closer to 5-foot-9 or even under. Murray has been projected to be a top-10 pick by some, but the question has always been about his size.


He set the record for the largest lead after 36 holes, at five-under, and tied the record for most consecutive birdies with six.

Following the co-favorites Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy, Thomas is the next man up, and with good reason. Each arrives at The Players in fine form with 13 top 10s in 19 starts among them.

It flared up again at the Genesis Open last month, and then got worse in Mexico City the following week.

Local forecasts call for partly cloudy skies on Thursday and Friday at TPC Sawgrass, but the weather will turn slightly for the weekend rounds, with scattered showers expected on Saturday. "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".

Francesco Molinari, Italy - Comes into the Players off his brilliant 64 in the final round that gave him the victory in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The only other cut he missed since then was the U.S. Open.

So who wins the 2019 Players Championship? Boasting what many believe to be the strongest and deepest field anywhere, the PGA Tour's flagship event... However, he also has five missed the cut five times. He also has a ton of familiarity with Bermuda grass on the East coast, and a top-three finish here in 2016.

THE PLAYERS Championship is contested in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.
