Kiradech eyes redemption at Players Championship

The 2019 PLAYERS Championship Preview How to Watch Online Live Stream TV Channel Tee Times

Some concern surrounded Woods after he dropped out of the Arnold Palmer Invitational citing a neck strain, but he arrived with a confident strut at the TPC Sawgrass course on Monday.

Thursday was Fleetwood's ninth round at TPC Sawgrass, one of the most hard venues on Tour, and the fifth time he has broken 70. "Driving is a strength for me normally and if you put it in play all the time in general you have a big advantage".

"Over the last 10 years it's been irons off tees and really trying to plot your way around the golf course, I hit drivers on holes today where I would never have the last few years", McIlroy, who has finished in the top six in all five starts in 2019, told reporters.

Tommy Fleetwood passed the "ultimate test in golf" with flying colours on the opening day of the Players Championship as he looks to keep pace with Ryder Cup partner Francesco Molinari.

"The wind picked up and there were some tough holes there", he said. Fred Couples, Hal Sutton, Steve Elkington and Davis Love III obviously aren't here this week but there is one competitor in the field this week with a chance to join The Golden Bear and I bet you know who it is. "But I drove it so well I was always in a good position".

"If you ask any player if they'd rather win a Players Championship or a major, everyone is going to say a major".

He came close a year ago at the U.S. Open, where he finished a stroke behind champion Brooks Koepka after a closing 63.

Its $US12.5 million purse is the richest on the PGA Tour.

"Expectation's a tricky thing".

An and Harman matched Fleetwood's seven birdies, but each had a bogey to boot.

Baddeley, who has eight missed cuts from 14 appearances, attributes his poor play at the 17th, and TPC Sawgrass in general, to tinkering with his golf swing too often.

McIlroy, a presence on leaderboards every time he has played this year, got off to a good start with a bogey-free sortie.

He was in a greenside bunker in two shots, but took two attempts to get out of the sand, and three more to hole out.

Bryson DeChambeau went round in 70 and Sergio Garcia finished one better off at three under.

Tiger Woods was among those with a late tee time.
