Players Championship not a major yet

Players Championship not a major yet

He missed a scheduled tournament for the first time since returning a year ago from spinal fusion surgery, and said it was more to make sure a growing problem that started last month in Los Angeles did not get worse.

No one played better last year than Webb Simpson, who built such a big lead in tying the 54-hole record that he shot a 73 in the final round - the highest Sunday score by a PGA Tour victor last year - and still won by four shots. I have built into this year a little bit but the courses are tough.

"I've seen Matt out here in the past year because he works with J.T. a lot and Matt has seen my stroke enough", Woods said.

But Baddeley rejects the idea golf's championship window lays the foundation for the Players to join golf's four existing majors: the Masters, the PGA Championship, the US Open and the British Open.

"I consider the Players a massive event and I think it's going to do well back in the March date", Scott, the 2013 Masters victor, said.

It is also the first time since 2006 that the Players is being held in March instead of May, heightening worries of adverse weather conditions hampering play on the already-difficult course.

"I had some chances on 15 and it didn't happen but it shows that if you stay patient, things can happen". Right now the greens out there are very deceptive.

"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.

It may have moved from May to March, but in at least one respect the Players Championship is stuck in its place. "It kind of brought the whole into play, but that's just how it was and how it played and the short Bermuda rough was really hard to judge". The golf course is one that Pete (Dye) has set up to intimidate you visually.

However Scott's countryman Jason Day, who equalled the course record 63 en route to his four-shot Players win in 2016, does want the Players to be enshrined as a major.

That's good news for DJ but perhaps bad news for the rest of the field.

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.
