"It was getting to the point where it was affecting my setup, my backswing, my through swing, " said Woods, who is back for this week's Players Championship.

"In March, that's not always the case".

We say flawless because his ball didn't even hit the green. (In May), the ball's rolling, ball's flying, it's usually dry. Because of the different weather and overseed of rye grass, the course is playing very differently than in May.

He put those questions to bed Tuesday at his news conference at the Players Championship.

Notes: The tournament moves back to March for the first time since 2006 in a major schedule shift with the PGA Championship going to May.

"It's not one I feel like I have to play".

"I felt like a few times I played well around here, it's just I couldn't ever get anything going".

"My big concern was if I got them, how long would it last?" "But it's not the best course for me".

That advisory , which includes Centre, Clearfield, Clinton and Lycoming counties, will be in effect from noon Sunday to 7 a.m. The hazardous conditions could impact those traveling Sunday night, and the Monday morning commute.

For any golfers who have thought about their "dream golf course", the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass is probably somewhere in the mix. "Not too many people can say that unless they've played in March".

To illustrate the distance difference, Woods noted that past year he hit a three-iron and a nine-iron to reach the 18th green on Sunday. It was his first top-10 finish of the year out of six tournaments.

When a swag of the world's best golfers tee it up on Friday morning (NZT) at the 2019 Players Championship - Danny Lee is the sole Kiwi playing this year, at odds of 200/1 at the TAB - they'll want to emulate what Perks did in 2002.

Once again, the Northern Irishman was in the final pairing at last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational. He also has dealt with an Achilles' heel problem and what he described as a left arm issue at the 2013 U.S. Open.

The change that appears to have caused most ire has been one that does not allow caddies to stand behind a player and help line up a shot. But that's created value on the same pro who finished second at the Honda Classic earlier this month and already has a win at the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges during the 2018-19 PGA Tour season. However, he also has five missed the cut five times. He has not finished out of the top 20 in his three starts this year, though he not finished closer than eight shots of the victor. As we break each play down, I will be sure to specify which type of contests I am targeting that player in. Sergio is coming off a tie for ninth in the Honda and a tie for sixth in the WGC-Mexico. In his first start in the Players Championship last season, he finished in a tie for second, four strokes behind victor Webb Simpson.

Koepka is agitated by missing the cut last week at Bay Hill, because one of his goals has been consistency.

Despite a stuttering start to the season, Woods said his build-up to the first major of the season, the Masters in April, was right on track. He tipped me off last spring that Shinnecock was going to be especially tough previous year, with a winning score of something around +1.

I will give two players to target from $11K up to the top salary, two targets from the $10K-$11K range, and two from the $9-10K range.
