Tiger Woods: I can compete now pain has gone

Tiger Woods: I can compete now pain has gone

He has logged just one other top 20. He doesn't have a great track record at TPC Sawgrass, but the changes at the tournament could turn the tides in his favor.

"I think that's the beauty of this golf course is that it suits everybody". "I've listened to what he has said to JT over the past year or so, and I really respect what he sees". "If this was a modern style golf course where every carry was 300 and things widened out, it would be frustrating for 40 percent of the field".

A third round 76 at last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational was the only thing preventing the Englishman from his maiden PGA Tour title as he finished T3, just three strokes behind the victor.

The Players is a tough tournament to project and we're usually able to get good odds on golfer with bad histories at TPC Sawgrass to miss the weekend.

Woods is recovering from a neck strain that kept him out of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and said he rested most of the week and didn't pick up a club until Saturday. Pete Dye's infamously demanding layout has made this the only significant tournament that has frequently given shorter hitters a fighting chance. "I couldn't make a complete swing". This golf course doesn't not allow that.

"If I drive it like I normally do then it's a big advantage round here because if you are always in play, it's scoreable after that", Fleetwood explained. The WGC Match Play tournament is the other.

The Patriots will have to look to offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn , whom they drafted at No. 23 overall past year . In the playoffs, Brown did not surrender a sack among four pressures in 127 pass-blocking snaps.

On paper, Rose would seem to match an identikit profile for a victor here. Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., and Nick Taylor, from Abbotsford, will also be teeing off on Thursday when the first big event of the PGA Tour's season begins.

The American had to pull out last minute of the Arnold Palmer Invitational due to a neck injury, however he has since confirmed his recovery and is fully-fit to try and claim his third Players title. He is now T102 in that category, and T161 in Greens in Regulation.

Monahan, who recently reminded players that the tour had been heavily involved in the rewriting of the rules, on Wednesday strongly defended the "fantastic" U.S. Golf Association and Royal & Ancient governing bodies.

"We are all going have patches where we just don't putt well and patches where we make everything". When the new world ranking was released on Monday, Rose had slipped to No. 2 behind Dustin Johnson. Some of that, he insisted, owes to a scheduled break. Six of the last nine Players Championship events have been decided by two strokes or fewer, and with major champions like Woods, Brooks Koepka and Jason Day in the field at TPC Sawgrass, we could see another tight finish. "But the first week out is always a slight, are you going to be rusty or are you going to be fresh, ready to go".

"It was getting to the point where it was affecting my set-up, my backswing, it was just gradually getting worse and that's just because my lower back is fused", Woods added.
