Golf Corner: Stars versus TPC Sawgrass - all-time battle in The Players

10 May 2018

Paired with best friend Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy for the first two rounds, Spieth said that he needed a new attitude if he is ever to win what is regarded by most as the "fifth major".

"I haven't even had to ask", Spieth said.

He didn't know because he didn't particularly care.

"If you shoot a three there, it's a bonus but I'll be aiming for a four". "It's nearly like a feat, like winning a major". I live out here in Florida now, at North Palm Beach, and in the first week off I played a bit with my family, who were still out here.

No more youthful arrogance about the tournament for Spieth.

Keith Mitchell replaces Casey in the field at TPC Sawgrass.

Braun defeats 2 GOP congressmen in Indiana Senate primary
Blankenship has also spent a significant amount of money on campaign ads and has invaded West Virginia's airwaves. Braun has already said he'll "flush out" Donnelly for his votes on health care and the Republican tax cut.

His last win came in 2013 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational but Woods is among the favourites to win The Players Championship this week.

Day climbed to the head of the sport in September 2015 after 5 wins that yr, together with his first main on the US PGA. Si-woo not only won this tournament a year ago, but he had a top-25 performance back in 2016 as well. In his first 58 of the Players, he was 14-under par and bogey free. He tied for fourth that year. He has been no worse than seventh in his past three trips to this tournament.

"I think the week after the U.S. Open this year, maybe for the 2018 Travelers", Spieth responded with a smile.

"Phil and I have a great banter - we give each other a lot of needle", the 14-time major victor revealed. Molinari is a respectable 29th in greens in regulation percentage and has missed the cut just once in each of his last nine events.

Day failed to win past year but has also won the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines this season and he has identified his improved chipping as one of the factors behind his return to form, which should stand him in good stead this week.

"It was disappointing that I didn't get the (Masters) result I wanted, but I took a lot of positives from the fact that I probably didn't have my best stuff at Augusta and I still was able to play my way into the final group and contend", McIlroy said.

Cavs not disciplining Hood for not entering game
Right around the time Cleveland acquired George Hill at the trade deadline , Kevin Love missed 20 games with a fractured hand . Cleveland's most-used postseason lineup is outscoring opponents by 41 points , good for third-best in the playoffs .

"I don't want to lose it", Johnson said.

"I played the back nine today and it's absolutely flawless", he said.

Woods says that good friend Day is learning how to win without his A-game. "Shanghai, it was a few iron shots that cost me".

"Desire and hunger (are not lacking) right now and I'm very motivated to keep pushing this (form) more and more". But I didn't putt well enough. I'm talking 10-footers. The four Par 5s are all feasibly reachable for longer hitters, and holes number two and 16 are reachable for just about everyone in the field.

Outside of a win this week, the only way Scott can avoid a trip to sectional qualifying is to regain a spot inside the OWGR top 60 by either May 21 or June 11. We've got the other three Major championships.

The Players isn't a major, but more and more it has played like one. Of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Ranking, the top 49 are at TPC Sawgrass this week. He has finished out of the top 20 in just over half his appearances, some of those when he was the most dominant player in golf. Indeed, the Stadium Course could even be described as Kryptonite for the boy wonder.

Lionel Messi: Barcelona star defended by close source amid Real Madrid claims
It was Barca's thumping 5-0 win over Ronaldo's Madrid in 2010 that really suggested that Pep had the Indian sign over CR7, though. A very, very close call which has Ramos the last man in Real Madrid's line of defence.
