Fleming golf tips for The Players Championship

Adjust Comment Print

The prize fund is massive, the field is loaded and while a victory here isn't the same as the Masters or the upcoming US Open, a victory can put you in select company. In fact, Spieth - who has missed the cut at Sawgrass on his last three appearances - is another who has found the Dye track a challenge.

Widely considered the "fifth major", the Players Championship has a worthy field, as every top-50 player in the world will be in Florida this week.

"It is easy to get burned out ready that you just're within the highlight".

Jordan Spieth, who won the 2017 Travelers Championship in dramatic fashion, announced Tuesday that he would play in this year's tournament. He's so close to Johnson now that he can miss the cut and still get to No. 1.

The Players was won in 2011 by KJ Choi, in 2012 by Matt Kuchar, in 2013 by Tiger Woods, in 2014 by Martin Kaymer, in 2015 by Fowler, in 2016 by Jason Day and past year by Si-Woo Kim in what was a huge surprise.

Syrian state media says Israel attacked just after U.S. quit Iran deal
Netanyahu's visit to Moscow coincided with Russia's celebration of the anniversary of Nazi Germany's capitulation in World War II. Israeli military officials are attributing the attack to members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps' Quds Forces.

Spieth revealed his commitment to the tournament during the event.

Rose can only jump to number one with a win, while Rahm and Spieth need at least a solo second place finish. Eventually Kuchar has to get over the hump as long as he keeps chipping away.

I thought of it a couple of weeks ago when, on just the third hole of the first day in the Zurich Classic in Louisiana, he stripped off to his underpants and waded into alligator infested waters to play a shot. With +6600 odds, Kuchar may be worth a look.

What he did with that putt, as Gary Koch famously said, was, "better than most". Two of the biggest changes are already known, though, with the US PGA Championship moving to May and, in turn, the Players Championship nudging forward to March. He was also a runner-up in the 2012 season at TPC Sawgrass, as well as finishing second in the Masters this season, so the big stage obviously doesn't faze the fan favorite. Many knowing sages believed Day was making a huge mistake, but he has returned to the winners' circle this year, is hitting the ball as well as ever - and is still working with Swatton as his swing coach. Combine that with last year's solo 11th and I'd say he's a pretty good lock for a great finish. For people who are newer to the golf scene, THE PLAYERS is not actually a major, there are only four majors in golf, however, everything about the tournament replicates what a major golf tournament is. The Tour made some dramatic changes to the 2018-19 calendar, with the biggest moving the PGA Championship, now the last of the four major championships and played in August, to May next year.

"If you shoot a three there, it's a bonus but I'll be aiming for a four". - Rickie Fowler is back at the site of his greatest victory, the one that was supposed to catapult his career.
