Quick look at THE PLAYERS Championship

"I have not won the Players, and we look at this tournament up there in about equal value with the major championships".

The illustrious list of champions is second to none, and includes golfing giants such as Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Tiger Woods, Fred Couples, Adam Scott, Nick Price, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Jason Day and Rickie Fowler.

He flipflopped with Jordan Spieth on the prime of the rankings till the next March when he took a agency grip on the world No. 1 place with three titles, culminating in a wire-to-wire victory within the Gamers Championship at Sawgrass - venue for this week's PGA Tour occasion. "I feel a lot of departments are working but my scoring hasn't been as good as I would like it to be", said Lahiri, who has not broken par in four rounds at TPC Sawgrass. For me to not work as hard as I should be and to be selfish in that mindset - well, I'm burned out, it's OK to have an off year. There are just five two-time winners at TPC Sawgrass, and not since Hal Sutton in 2000 has there been a repeat victor in any 10-year span. He can frustrate you by the design of his golf courses, and you feel like you're getting bad breaks, and that can get under your skin a little bit. "I played good at Augusta, I played good at Hilton Head", Johnson said.

Last year's victor, and golfer who's now ranked 4th in the world, Jordan Spieth, is expected to speak. I just need to hit the back of the ball with a square clubface. "I think it just kind of depends who it is and what's happened".

Rodney Hood Refused to Enter Game in 4th Quarter, Angered Multiple Teammates
Hood is clearly frustrated, but you'd still expect more mature conduct from a 25-year-old making his first deep postseason run. So far in the postseason, Hood is shooting 39.6% from the field and an terrible 2 for 15 (13 percent) on 3-pointers.

The Pete Dye design has seen all sorts of players win. The field is always among the strongest - last year, only the three full-field majors had a higher-rated field. Rory McIlroy didn't break par until his fourth time at The Players Championship. This golf course is tough.

Johnson, like numerous other young stars occupying the PGA Tour right now, never had to face Tiger Woods during his most dominant days.

There hasn't been a British victor of the Fifth Major since Sandy Lyle in 1987 but Ralph Ellis is backing Justin Rose to end that 31-year wait. It is. It's sort of I stayed pretty much on property there at the - at that hotel, and I just felt like I couldn't get away from it, and it's busy and there's a lot of people, and so to go and stay on the beach now, it's a nice sort of release from everything that's going on around the event. And no PGA TOUR rookie has ever won THE PLAYERS; the best result was a T-2 by David Lingmerth in 2013.
