Tommy Fleetwood tempted by lush conditions at Players Championship

On top of that, there are times I just can't do it. The TPC Sawgrass was renowned in any month for not favoring any one style of golf. "But it's not the best course for me". "If this was a modern style golf course where every carry was 300 and things widened out, it would be frustrating for 40 percent of the field". This is no doubt a big deviation from the normal May playing of this tournament, but the unofficial fifth major should still bring all the entertainment you could want, as well as plenty of action in DraftKings fantasy golf.

Former victor Rickie Fowler leads the next group at +2000 on the golf odds along with Justin Rose, and they are followed by Brooks Koepka, Francesco Molinari and Tiger Woods at +2200. Pete Dye's infamously demanding layout has made this the only significant tournament that has frequently given shorter hitters a fighting chance.

"We are going to make certain that our players understand how we're working with our industry partners, what our thinking is that we're sharing with our industry partners and that this game will be well served by having two great professional governing bodies, " Monahan said. This golf course doesn't not allow that. I was just plodding along and just kind of getting around. Likewise in the betting markets, speculators are offered some much longer prices on golfers who might lead the field or be in the top 5-10 in a different tournament.

On paper, Rose would seem to match an identikit profile for a victor here. He ranks seventh on tour in strokes gained: tee to green, eighth in scrambling and first in par-4 scoring. Late in his third round at Chapultepec, he followed a four-putt for double with a three-putt for bogey. He is now T102 in that category, and T161 in Greens in Regulation.

Long before the back surgeries, he had four surgeries on his left knee, the worst of them in 2008 a week after he won the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.

Venezuela still in dark, Juan Guaido wants ‘state of alarm’ declared
Their presence "entails risks for the peace, integrity and stability of the country", Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said . Engineers have restored power in some parts of Venezuela, but it often goes out again.

Australian Day pulled out of the Arnold Palmer Invitational during the first round last Thursday, citing back pain and reporting that an MRI had revealed a tear in a disc. When the new world ranking was released on Monday, Rose had slipped to No. 2 behind Dustin Johnson.

"It's just another hole and when you get there you pick a number, you pick club, and you try and hit a golf shot and you keep going from there". Some of that, he insisted, owes to a scheduled break.

Woods, who will play at TPC Sawgrass after missing the Arnold Palmer Invitational last week because of a neck strain, says he doesn't have a preference, March or May, "Because I've won them both".

"I don't bring the same intensity and I nearly expect to win, and I think when you expect to win you're not always going to do that". I think the top players in the world these days are the guys who are hitting it generally a lot further than most, so you might run into six, seven, eight, nine venues a year where you're playing against guys who just maybe can't beat you based on their skill set versus yours.
