DraftKings fantasy golf picks: The Players Championship 2019

But Baddeley rejects the idea golf's championship window lays the foundation for the Players to join golf's four existing majors: the Masters, the PGA Championship, the US Open and the British Open.

Bigger names peppered the leader board in the opening round of the 2019 Players Championship, but no player provided quite the highlight Harris English gave fans at TPC Sawgrass on Thursday. Don't worry, though - if we've seen anything about TPC Sawgrass, the course will find a way to equalize the field. Among them, only Tiger Woods with wins in 2001 and 2013 is competing this weekend.

He was in a greenside bunker in two shots, but took two attempts to get out of the sand, and three more to hole out. (This week) the course will definitely play a little longer than we saw it the last 10 years or so in May, with some slower fairways and wind out of a different direction than we see often here. When the move was made, however, over-seeding of the course became unnecessary because dormant Bermuda grass returned with the warmer temperatures in May which then caused the course to play differently.

"I think 90 on I-95 is enough to get attention". He's now second in SG: tee-to-green and first in scoring average and Par 5 scoring.

"I think probably there are certain courses that people love and, I wouldn't say hate, but just they don't agree with you", Scott said. "I have hit anything but a 9-iron or a wedge in there for 12 years". I thought, I can live with that.

- Vaughn Taylor wasn't among those who lobbied to convince the PGA Tour that The Players Championship should be moved from May to March, but he should have been. He hasn't played it every well, not by his standards or anyone else who has reached No. 1 in the world and has 20 victories for his career.

Adam Hadwin, however, doesn't like to get too geared up for any one hole on any course.

JIMMY WALKER: I think it's about to become a really good hole again. It carries the prestige and the purse to stack up to the PGA Tour's premier tournaments, and TPC Sawgrass, one of golf's iconic courses, provides the ideal backdrop for Tiger Woods and the sport's biggest stars up and down the leaderboard.

"Based on our past events here in May, just making sure I'm clear on what we're doing off the tees". "Whether it's visually or a particular hole or something - I mean, a lot of guys struggle putting at Riviera and I putt well there, which is weird".

The 45-year-old Players, which Jack Nicklaus won three times and Tiger Woods twice, now kicks off what many have dubbed the "championship season" by reverting to the March date it held until 2006.
