The Players Championship 2018: Preview, predictions and picks

The Players Championship 2018: Preview, predictions and picks

Golfer Anirban Lahiri has more than a few things to set right this week at the PLAYERS Championships as he is in danger of dropping out of the top 100 for the first time in more than four years. "Shanghai, it was a few iron shots that cost me".

"I don't usually bring Col into tournament, only because I typically like to work with him before events", Day said. "I was anxious if I kept it going, it was going to head that way, and I love him too much to have him not in my life because of how special he is to me".

I thought of it a couple of weeks ago when, on just the third hole of the first day in the Zurich Classic in Louisiana, he stripped off to his underpants and waded into alligator infested waters to play a shot.

"I feel a lot of departments are working but my scoring hasn't been as good as I would like it to be". Yes, I was annoyed, but I'd been playing golf - well, on the front nine - on a gorgeous spring afternoon. Last year's tournament was also the one that marked a turning point for Ian Poulter, when he finished joint runner-up, secured his playing privileges for the year and went on to re-establish himself in the world's top 50. They had an incredible relationship on and off the course.

"There's no way of faking it around this golf course", said Woods, who won his first U.S. Amateur at Sawgrass in 1994. "I think this is a year we have some great chances".

"The first time you get on some Pete Dye courses they're very odd 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". He has two wins here this year, not quite as well, but that's learning how to win. "If I can keep up my form, I don't think the trophy is far away from me", said Kiradech. The tight layout of the Stadium Course could create even more chaos. Meanwhile, Andrew Cotter discusses the moment that your sporting heroes become regular people: "Why my view has changed with age about the men and women I once idolised".

Reed has never really been a factor at The Players, but with his major breakthrough behind him, we expect the floodgates to open. Woods has made the cut in five consecutive starts and will look to make a run at the PGA Tour's "fifth major".

McIlroy failed to capitalise on a strong position heading into the final round at Augusta last month, slipping out of contention with a 74 that left him six shots adrift of eventual victor Patrick Reed.

Rose is number one on the PGA Tour for scrambling from the fringe, as well as ninth in putting and 22nd for Greens in Regulation.

THIS WEEK: Kim's winning score of 10-under 278 was the highest since Sergio Garcia in 2008 (283). Before that, though, he was at his gunslinging best, with two wins and four other top 10s in a 10-tournament span. Farner said the PGA is attracted to Detroit's story, and believes the golfers will be, too. He looks at dominance over a five-year window.

"I wouldn't say it's gravy, but I'm just so thankful to be able to have this opportunity again, because I didn't know if I would ever have had (it)".
