Hadwin isn’t worried about the famous No. 17 at Players Championship

Tiger Woods plays his shot from the second tee during the final round of the WGC- Mexico Championship golf tournament at Club de Golf Chapultepec

Tiger Woods arrived at TPC Sawgrass and declared himself pain free and ready to go for The Players Championship. Like so many tournaments in recent years, Woods has missed the majority but a T11 here last year and a victory just two starts before that (2013) shows this really is a layout that suits his game.

Two players withdrew on Monday - American world number 86 Pat Perez and South Korean world number 175 Whee Kim.

"I'm 43 with four back surgeries so must manage what I have and understand that I'm going to have good weeks and bad weeks and try and manage as best I possibly can and not push it", Woods said Tuesday after a nine-hole practice round at The Players Championship. "I've played three tournaments this year and that's about right", he said in looking towards Augusta.

"If I would have got my rounds in last week, it would have been four tournaments, so I'm right there where I need to be".

Bombers Love March Move: During the last 12 years of PLAYERS Championships in May, the winners list fails to identify a specific type of player as being advantaged, other than those who came in with some form in their approach game. He has three Top 20 finishes in his last four starts and his ball-striking stats are right back to where they were at the beginning of a year ago when he got off to a hot start.

Kohli was referring to the incident that took place in the 44th over of Australia's innings. The fifth and final game will take place on March 13 at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi.


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.

The 32-year-old's best finish from six Sawgrass starts was T13 in 2015, and he claimed a top 40 at this course last year. "A lot of the tee shots are hard so if I can do that well and be aggressive then hopefully I can do enough other things right to be up there". My finishes are getting a little bit better each and every time I've gone out so far this year, and I've gotten a little bit more consistent with my play.

"I think that's the beauty of this golf course is that it suits everybody".

As for his health, Woods does not consider that a major concern.

Webb Simpson won The Players previous year and will be joined in the field by an impressive list of former champions that includes Woods, Mickelson, Jason Day (2016) of Australia, Rickie Fowler (2015), Martin Kaymer (2014), Matt Kuchar (2012), Henrik Stenson (2009) of Sweden, Sergio Garcia (2008) of Spain, Si Woo Kim (2017) of South Korea and Adam Scott (2004) of Australia.

Cleveland Browns signing DT Sheldon Richardson

"That's one of the issues of having a procedure like I did, that the forces have to go somewhere", he said.

"It's more just my lower back", Woods said.

"I [then drove] to Palm Beach from Orlando and saw a spinal surgeon", Day said. If I were young and early in my career, I would say yes, because I think it's as close to a major as it can get.

Xander Schauffele, United States - The FedEx Cup points leader thanks to victories in the WGC-HSBC Champions and the Sentry TOC, Schauffele has finished in the top 25 in seven of his eight starts this season. Woods hinted that he would commit to the Match Play if he remains healthy.
