Day makes hot start to Players defence

Day makes hot start to Players defence

Spieth went on to win the Masters, the U.S. Open and the FedEx Cup in 2015. If a player sticks approach shots inside 10' consistently, he's going to shoot up the leaderboard and contend on Sunday.

Masters champion Sergio Garcia and world number one Dustin Johnson were among those with late tee times.

The morning groupings saw numerous game's biggest draws tackle the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass and there's a few names out there at 2-under that catch the eye, such as Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson and yes, Jason Day.

The five weeks since The Masters have felt like five years.

So the 12 hole has been shortened to 302 yards, hoping to lure players to stand on the tee, unsheath drivers, and produce a bold swing for the fences.

There has never been a repeat victor at The Players Championship, a fact that speaks to the difficulty of the course and the quality of the field. No Tiger Woods (who isn't within a mile of the world's Top 50) following another back surgery.

Predicting a victor in The Players is tougher than picking any other tournament.

Flutter apps are written in Dart, Google's reboot of JavaScript which focuses on high-performance 120fps applications on mobile. In addition to this, we have come to know that the operating system's interface will be known as Armadillo .

Conceived by former PGA Tour commissioner Deane Beman, the Players initially ran into heated opposition from legends Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.

Deputies told News4Jax that the big problem is the tournament is held in a residential area designed for light amounts of traffic - not an global sporting event.

Johnson makes the task look like Everest.

Last week's Wells Fargo champion Brian Harman also came in for a chat, with a whole host of players to set to follow suit over the coming days. It's time he won a big one again.

It's not that dissimilar to a change to the par-5 eighth hole during the redesign of Trump National Doral a few years ago.

Rory McIlroy believes that tying the knot can give his golf game a lift as he prepares for an assault on the $10.5 million Players Championship in Florida this week. Nobody who saw his victory surge two years ago will ever forget it. He's the all-time leading money-winner at the tournament, won in 2008 and was second in 2007 & '15.

World No.2 Rory McIlroy, who has watched "DJ" not only end Australian Jason Day's 47-week reign as world No.1 but build a five-point lead atop the rankings, sees no signs of Johnson slowing down.

Canada: Flooding state of emergency in Montreal
Heavy rainfall has pushed water levels in the region's creeks and rivers over their banks and led to major flooding. The Canadian Red Cross has launched a campaign asking for donations for those affected by the flooding.

Many of those guys are either already in the Hall or well on their way.

Thursday 2017 was far different than Thursday 2016, when Day shot an opening-round 63 on his way to a commanding four-shot victory.

A Canadian has won this tournament: in 2006, Stephen Ames got the biggest victory of his life - one of his four career PGA Tour wins - by finishing at 14-under 274, a whopping six shots ahead of South African Retief Goosen. Hadwin was most recently 72 at the Texas Open and was 39 here in 2016 after missing the cut in his 2015 debut. Not only is Johnson at No 1, his lead is greater than anyone's except what Woods enjoyed over the last 20 years.

David Hearn (+41700 & +400) Mackenzie Hughes (+52600 & +550) round out the options.

It was won past year by Jason Day, in 2015 by Rickie Fowler, 2014 by Martin Kaymer, 2013 by Tiger Woods, in 2012 by Matt Kuchar, in 2011 by KJ Choi and in 2010 by Tim Clark. Hughes, T31 last week, is playing this tournament for the first time.

Sports Interaction has some golf group betting among its props.

"It's such a great tournament to have in the area, and I feel it adds so much value to our community and the amount of money it puts back into our community is a neat thing". "I'm probably going to play it with a 3-iron and a sand wedge". With the upcoming weather we have, with how firm the greens are going to get, how fast the greens are going to get, it should be a tough championship.
