With a T4 in 2017 around TPC Sawgrass followed by a T17, this is a course that suits Rafa's game and if you factor in the kind of form that he now holds, this could see him be in contention once again.

Tommy Fleetwood grabbed the clubhouse lead as competitors plundered TPC Sawgrass in benign morning conditions in the first round of the Players Championship in north Florida on Thursday.

The 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass is one of the most famous par 3s in the world, featuring an island green surrounded by water.

Woods said he had been hampered by the issue at the WGC-Mexico Championship, where he finished in a share of 10th last month. "I was in such a nice zone for the week and I remember my attitude - especially the final day - not bothering me", he said. It has produced champions such as Woods and Greg Norman, or Fred Funk and Hal Sutton when it was held in March.

All of the entrances to the Temple Mount were ordered closed following the attack to enable police to search for weapons. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas denounced the "dangerous Israeli escalation" and warned of "serious repercussions".


Jason Day and Phil Mickelson were also on-site at TPC Sawgrass on Monday, indicating that the big names will all participate in the event.

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

The tournament had a March date until 2007 when it was moved to May. It carries the prestige and the purse to stack up to the PGA Tour's premier tournaments, and TPC Sawgrass, one of golf's iconic courses, provides the ideal backdrop for Tiger Woods and the sport's biggest stars up and down the leaderboard.

"I had been feeling that my stroke has been off, but a lot of it is physically", he said. I am going to have good weeks and bad weeks.

Heavy rain this week made the fairways even softer and speckled some golf balls with mud - something rarely seen in May - but Scott noticed the difference immediately.

"There's nothing easy about that hole", Woods said. "But also, I've cost myself a few years here and there because of it". "You know it's coming", said Hadwin. The bail-out, that first tree, I think was 280 to that first tree, and that's dead.

Justin Rose, England - Another top player who has not played well at TPC Sawgrass, Rose's tie for fourth in 2014 is his only top-10 finish in 15 starts on the course, but he closed with a 66 past year to record a respectable tie for 23rd. He has not finished out of the top 20 in his three starts this year, though he not finished closer than eight shots of the victor. He has only five rounds in the 60s.

"We are all going have patches where we just don't putt well and patches where we make everything". I have to try to manage it the best I possibly can and not push it. "It was frustrating, too". He's playing with Patrick Reed and Webb Simpson. "It was about getting comfortable and letting the putts rip, and I was able to do that today". On top of that, there are times where I just can't do it.
