Tiger Woods Ready for Players Championship

"We have always played by their rules and we'll continue to play by their rules", he said in Florida on the eve of the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass. I feel like good shots weren't always rewarded, just with the way the course was playing. Despite the best promotional efforts of the PGA Tour, the biggest tournament on golf's most lucrative circuit will nearly certainly never be ranked higher than fifth - after the four constituent parts of the grand slam: the Masters, the US Open, the Open Championship and the US PGA in a long-established pecking order. "In the past I haven't hit the ball all that straight".

"It would be nice if we never heard or got asked questions about the USGA, because they should be off to the side and hopefully the rules are here to help us and help us play, " Bradley said.

What television channel can I watch the 2019 Players Championship on in the United Kingdom? Just in contention, if it's tough, certain guys are going to throw themselves out, and it really kind of whittles down to a few players. It's not a must-play for me because I'm 48 and I've played it 25 times and I've already won it. "But it's not the best course for me".

"It is not painful now", said Woods, who will play Thursday's opening round with defending champion Webb Simpson and Masters victor Patrick Reed. The SuperBook's line on whether he'll win his 15th major this year - and first in more than a decade - is at Yes +350, No -450.

Following the co-favorites Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy, Thomas is the next man up, and with good reason. That put them just one shot behind the leaders - highly-regarded Jeff Sluman and little-known Carl Paulson. My finishes are getting a little bit better each and every time I've gone out so far this year, and I've gotten a little bit more consistent with my play.

Cavs Players Clown on Odell Beckham Jr.’s Move to Cleveland Browns
That said, Beckham will be a more regular opponent for the Patriots in the coming years now that he's in the AFC. In exchange for OBJ , the Giants received safety Jabrill Peppers as well as a first and third-round draft pick.

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. His putting hasn't been very good (for him) so far this season (he's 79th overall). Fowler won The Players Championship in 2015 in a playoff over Sergio Garcia and Kevin Kisner for arguably the biggest victory of his career. He withdrew during two and missed the cut in the other 13. He also has a ton of familiarity with Bermuda grass on the East coast, and a top-three finish here in 2016.

I will give two players to target from $11K up to the top salary, two targets from the $10K-$11K range, and two from the $9-10K range. With an average finishing result of 25 around TPC Sawgrass (three straight top-tens between 2012 & 2015), his game is in ideal shape to finally break his winless drought.

Despite a stuttering start to the season, Woods said his build-up to the first major of the season, the Masters in April, was right on track. Reigning FedEx Cup champ has wins in the Indonesian Masters and Farmers Insurance Open since November. Tiger, who also was second in 2000 and eighth in 2009, has three top 20s in as many starts this year after winning the Tour Championship in October.
