Tiger 'feeling good' as he arrives for the Players

Italian Francesco Molinari has also gained momentum coming into the Players after a spectacular putting performance nabbed him the Arnold Palmer Invitational last week. "It was getting to the point where it was affecting my set up, my back swing, my through swing".

"It's more just my lower back", Woods said. It wasn't fun. I couldn't make a backswing. "When I have an injury, I get sad and depressed". It is played yearly at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida and known best for its signature 17th hole, a par 3 with an Island Green. 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.

"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. Please feel free to tweet me throughout the weekend about the tournament. That T63 finish at Bay Hill was his worst result in a made cut in almost two years.

With the neck corrected, Woods also wanted to ensure his stroke was in order and had short-game coach Matt Killen working with him. 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. Woods said he has been dealing with the strain for a few weeks. My finishes are getting a little bit better each and every time I've gone out so far this year, and I've gotten a little bit more consistent with my play.

Although it doesn't appear to be a permanent relationship, it's the first time Woods has worked with a coach of any sort since parting with Chris Como in 2017. He's one of 23 golfers in the field this week who has played the tournament in its previous incarnation in March.

Norwegian Air said it would seek recompense for lost revenue and extra costs after grounding its 737 MAX aircraft. Last Sunday an Ethiopian Airlines plane has crashed en route to Nairobi, killing all 157 on board.

Not everyone is convinced that will remain the case now that the Players has moved back to March after a decade of being played in May, when the course was firmer and permitted lesser mortals on the PGA Tour to get added distance with roll. But with the overseeding of the golf course, it should play a lot softer than in year's past. "That's probably the biggest difference". As my neck got a little bit tighter, yeah, I didn't feel comfortable with my putting. Justin Rose certainly enjoys that at the majors - he's had three second-place finishes in the last few years - but TPC Sawgrass has been much less fertile terrain for the former U.S. Open champion.

"It was a crap iron shot, first of all", Woods joked about the moment.

Thomas chases history: Nine-time PGA TOUR victor Justin Thomas has less than two months remaining to join Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth and Jack Nicklaus as one of the four youngest players in PGA TOUR history to reach 10 career wins. I keep it very simple. "You have to overcome that part of it". "Hit it good. It's not real complicated".

Woods will try to do exactly that and join Jack Nicklaus as the only three-time winners of The Players.
