Fleetwood sets hot pace with 65 at Players Championship

Fleetwood sets hot pace with 65 at Players Championship

Tiger Woods and Jason Day have seemingly dispelled doubts about their participation in this week's The Players Championship in Florida when ther arrived on Monday.

It's not as though the Northern Irishman's record at The Players had been wanting - his resume includes three consecutive top-10 finishes beginning in 2013 - but the over-seeded golf course that players face this year as a result of the event's shift to March from May are custom made for McIlroy. Before you lock in your 2019 Players Championship picks or enter a PGA DFS tournament on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings, be sure to see the PGA Tournament predictions from SportsLine's proven computer model.

This week's Players is Taylor's 11 start at the Tour's flagship event.

"The wind picked up and there were some tough holes there", he said.

Tiger Woods was among the later starters, with the former World No.1 finishing his round strongly to card a three-under-par 69.

"This is one of the few holes that I can think of that has no bail-out, that has no margin of error, that has no area for recovery", he said in 2007. It really doesn't matter if you hit the water or the green at that point, it's just an incredibly feeling playing a hole where some of the legends have hit incredible shots that live in the memories of the game forever.

Moore's 121-yard shot was the ninth ace at the 17th in the Players' 45-year history. Johnson was T17 previous year and comes off a win at the WGC-Mexico Championship a few weeks ago. "It's clearly the next step for me to win over here but winning's not easy and I've just got to keep plodding away", Fleetwood said.

Bradley sounded nearly serene after his 65.

McIlroy was flawless in his performance, dropping no shots on his way to the 67, however he will be frustrated that perhaps he was not one or two shots better off.

"I don't normally feel as comfortable as I did today".

He tweeted that the course had "very little rough".

While Rose dropped three shots in one hole, Harris English, an American despite his name, picked up the same number with an albatross at the par-five 11th, where his second shot from 235 yards landed softly a couple of paces in front of the cup and rolled in.
