I mean, it is one of the toughest tests in golf with potentially the best field in golf.
He didn't know because he didn't particularly care.
Now that the star-studded 2018 Players Championship field is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
It's no secret McIlroy wasn't a fan of The Players Championship after a lack of success at Sawgrass early on in his career.
"This is my ninth time here so I'm not a spring chicken anymore", McIlroy said.
Golf tournaments are far different from men's tennis events, where the victor is nearly certain to come from a pool of four to five stars. He's been feast-or-famine at TPC Sawgrass, boasting a win (2015's stunning sprint to the finish) and a T2 (2012) but no other showing even resembling contention.
Woods returns almost two months later searching his for game - and his first victory in almost five years. Now riding a streak of five straight top-10 finishes.
Fowler's last six holes were birdie, par, birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie.
Anything is possible this week with Woods, from a missed cut to a spot on the Sunday leaderboard. He tied for fourth. His next three trips all ended on Friday. "I've got a few years under my belt and it took me a few years to figure it out, but I've had a few top 10's here. I've played well in spurts there and I'm really looking forward to getting there and doing a little homework on the golf course", Woods said.
Trump furious about Russian Federation investigation's questions and 'phony crime'
Trump's lawyers are careful to say that the President hasn't shut the door to a possible agreement for an interview. The threat to issue a subpoena, as it is known, was reportedly met with a sharp response from one of Mr.
Thomas tied for third two years ago when he closed with a 65.
Reaching world No.1, it appeared, was simpler than staying there, and the Australian slid down the rankings from a seemingly impregnable place.
So who wins the 2018 Players Championship? "But we'll see if I can go ahead and get some mentions in there and maybe make myself talked about by week's end". Putting together the players we want to see on Day 1?
This wouldn't even be a topic if not for a record-tying collapse in Shanghai and a lost opportunity at Pebble Beach. Si-woo not only won this tournament past year, but he had a top-25 performance back in 2016 as well. There's a whole lot to like this weekend with the 42-year-old from Sweden. And in his mind, it hasn't been all that bad. But the course is in great shape, and obviously I've got a pretty good grouping, so I'm excited to start and get going. "Shanghai, it was a few iron shots that cost me".
"I'm hitting the ball well enough, especially off the tee, that there's no reason not to be aggressive".
"I just kind of assumed that it would come easy to me", Spieth said. I've never hit so many good putts I thought were going in that didn't.
"I didn't like it that much, [but] I like it a lot [now]", McIlroy said. "That's something I really enjoy about this tournament", Thomas continued.
Moon has signed up to compete on the Manchester-based 1836 Pro Tour and is hoping to secure a sponsor's invite to play a Challenge Tour event in Switzerland next month, before heading to the European Tour's Q School later in the year. The other event was Match Play, where he failed to advance out of his group.
