He tied for fifth last Sunday at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte.

Jordan Spieth, who won the 2017 Travelers Championship in dramatic fashion, announced Tuesday that he would play in this year's tournament. It'll be fun. I'm looking forward to playing with the two of them.

Rickie Fowler, victor of the tournament in 2016, said: "It's one of the toughest courses we play all year".

Jeffrey Kang narrowly leads fellow American Charlie Saxon in the PGA Tour Series-China order of merit standings as the circuit swings into Hainan Island for this week's Haikou Championship at Sunac Haikou 3KM Golf.

McIlroy failed to capitalise on a strong position heading into the final round at Augusta last month, slipping out of contention with a 74 that left him six shots adrift of eventual victor Patrick Reed. So this is all new to me.

He added: "I wouldn't say it's gravy, but I'm just so thankful to be able to have this opportunity again, because I didn't know if I would ever have had (it)".

Since his return, Woods has been less predictable in the public eye and more approachable with fans.

Spieth represents one of many oddities about this tournament. Woods also sticks around to sign autographs.




The illustrious list of champions is second to none, and includes golfing giants such as Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Tiger Woods, Fred Couples, Adam Scott, Nick Price, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Jason Day and Rickie Fowler.

"I didn't know what to expect this year", he said. We have got this event here, I've never won this, I would love to put this on my CV.

There have been a handful of players to win the Players multiple times. The question remains can he still win on Tour.

Needing a birdie to force a playoff March 10 at the Valspar Championship in Tampa, Woods played conservatively with an iron off the 442-yard closing hole to leave himself with a long approach shot that ended up 40 feet from the hole.

On Wednesday, Tony Johnson and his wife, Marise, had their chairs staked out in a prime spot on the famous par-3 17th hole. THE PLAYERS is simply 144 professional golfers from the PGA Tour, who all had great success recently.

Jason Day - The 2016 victor was very impressive last week in his Wells Fargo win, despite some iffy driving in the final round.

Quicken Loans officials see the four-day tournament as part of its broader commitment to investing in Detroit. He needed only 12th place alone last week at Quail Hollow (he tied for 21st). So I've had to make more sacrifices than I did 15 years ago. "There may be an occasion I might have to hit driver if I'm in contention or if I'm one back".

The 2018 edition at TPC Sawgrass begins on Thursday, and all of the world's top 50 golfers are set to participate. A Pete Dye design, originally dating from 1979, the layout was redesigned by Dye in 2006. And then Pebble, Mexico, LA, Augusta, Hilton Head. all of them I played plenty well enough to win. "I struggled with it".
