With 600 FedEx Cup points available at the Players Championship - most tournaments have 500 on the line - it's an opportunity to shoot up the standings.
I've known about this change in schedule for nearly a year now but it is weird to be talking about the Players Championship in March. "I've got to stay fit, I've got to stay on it, and have to stay as loose as I possibly can for as long as I play out here". Cantlay serves as a pivot to those who are in need of a player to differentiate a bit in GPP's.
Hadwin, from Abbotsford, B.C., is one of three Canadians in the field at the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. "Based on our past events here in May, just making sure I'm clear on what we're doing off the tees". In the tournament's history, there have only been five playoffs, suggesting that those in contention will require some luck around the notoriously hard and sometimes unfair TPC Sawgrass, otherwise the leader could easily pull away from the field as has happened in the past. Instead, we're here to make picks for your DraftKings fantasy golf lineup as it pertains to The Players Championship. - Tiger Woods' mentoring of Justin Thomas appears to have paid dividends, as Woods has borrowed Thomas' putting coach, Matt Killen. It was high on champion Dustin Johnson at the 2019 WGC-Mexico Championship, projecting him as one of the top two contenders from the start.
Woods, 43, showed up at Innisbrook last March for the first time since 1996 and put on a show. He has missed the cut only four times and has finished top 5 four times. Now set at No. 6 on the rankings, McIlroy marched to a sixth-place finish at last weekend's Arnold Palmer Invitational while set as a +650 favourite.
We're looking for players in their prime this week, then, with 26 to 37 the ideal bracket.
Woodland has had a couple good results at Sawgrass. "I'm not going to be sitting in my bus depressed, and especially when the doctors tell me to go and walk".
A spinal fusion almost two years ago resurrected a career that had been in danger of coming to a premature end. The conservative approach that he adopted in Mexico could be a tactic he applies this week as he led SG: approach-the-green, demonstrating he has every chance of making history this week. With an average finish of 24 so far in 2019, having improved his final position during each tournament, this suggests Fleetwood is close to a breakthrough.
Local forecasts call for partly cloudy skies on Thursday and Friday at TPC Sawgrass, but the weather will turn slightly for the weekend rounds, with scattered showers expected on Saturday.
Course form and current form may not be any more irrelevant for any other event.
To illustrate the distance difference, Woods noted that a year ago he hit a three-iron and a nine-iron to reach the 18th green on Sunday.
