Rory McIlroy keen to add Players Championship title to glittering CV

Rory McIlroy keen to add Players Championship title to glittering CV

McIlroy endured just the second winless season of his career in 2017 and although victory in the Arnold Palmer Invitational ensured that would not happen again this year, he failed to complete the career grand slam in the Masters last month.

Si Woo Kim announced himself to the world with a spectacular victory past year, when he became the youngest ever victor of the Players Championship. These days, players don't stay among the top without winning or having consistently high finishes, and Johnson is there for a reason. He said switching up where he stays during the week may have made all the difference.

"I feel like I've played a little bit better here as I've gone along, and once I started to be a little bit more conservative, I started to top-10 it and give myself half a chance".

"I've got an opportunity in these four weeks to have a lot of fun playing golf and potentially give myself a chance to win", Spieth said.

Well, we agree. There's nothing like a day at the beach. Now, he's found a much more relaxing atmosphere at the beach.

"Go for walks", McIlroy added.

"The room for error is just smaller, and that makes it more hard if you get off a little bit and you try and force anything". It's just very - and it's such a nice beach here. However, my body feels as good or better than it did back then, and I'm able to swing the club as well or better than I did.

Well, let's send that alert to the Chamber of Commerce.

"The first time you get on some Pete Dye courses they're very unusual, and they set you up at wrong angles, and visually they're just a little bit not what you want to see, but you learn to deal with it and play the way he wants you to play", McIlroy said.

"I didn't like it that much, [but] I like it a lot [now]", McIlroy said.

Casey, 40, underwent treatment on the problem upon his arrival at TPC Sawgrass on Wednesday but was advised by medical staff to bypass the tournament in order to prevent further damage. You know you've been there. It's taken a while for me to figure that out. "I actually think you come out better hitting really bad shots than by just barely missing".

One of the more incredible traits of Mickelson is how he has kept his enthusiasm for 27 years playing the PGA Tour. "I had all four major championships, I had The Players, I had two World Golf Championships, and all the biggest events I had won at the same time".

His assessment of the tournament: "It's tough".

But, asked to evaluate his record at Sawgrass, he added: "It was 12 years between wins here, and just looking at my record, I didn't play this place well".

The Players Championship, held over the exacting Stadium course with its iconic island-green 17th, attracts the deepest field of the season and ranks for many as akin to a major.
