Players Championship: Tommy Fleetwood says softer grass will allow aggressive play

Players Championship: Tommy Fleetwood says softer grass will allow aggressive play

Tiger Woods hits from the seventh tee during a practice round at The Players Championship golf tournament, Wednesday, March 13, 2019, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. The 14-time major champion was off to a strong start to the PGA Tour season before the injury and will look to pick up where he left off at golf's "fifth major". On the other hand, Jordan Spieth having only played this tournament in March said that he personally likes the grass type better.

Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler, Brandt Snedeker and Jimmy Walker have been among several players critical of the USGA and the unveiling of a series of new rules this year that were meant to simplify the game but in some cases caused more issues.

"I think 90 on I-95 is enough to get attention".

It is also the first time since 2006 that the Players is being held in March instead of May, heightening worries of adverse weather conditions hampering play on the already-difficult course. He's now second in SG: tee-to-green and first in scoring average and Par 5 scoring. The only year I really remember it being just brutally hard and fast was when David (Duval) won in 1999. I think you have a few more misses around the greens because you can chip out of the rough and the greens are softer.

Despite the prank, I'm sure the experience of playing 17 was one that the golfers will never forget.

Back in 2007 the Players Championship made the move from March to May. 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.

JIMMY WALKER: I think it's about to become a really good hole again.

LEE WESTWOOD: I remember hitting a 5-iron.

The 2015 US PGA Championship victor says it is up to golf media to create the narrative, similar to the way Arnold Palmer helped conceptualise the current four majors with sports writers in 1960.

No one played better last year than Webb Simpson, who built such a big lead in tying the 54-hole record that he shot a 73 in the final round - the highest Sunday score by a PGA Tour victor last year - and still won by four shots.

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

It's easy to feel good about Molinari, who is coming off of an impressive win at last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Now, can you imagine finally getting your shot at the 17th, only to be told at the very last minute you wouldn't be able to tee it up?
