Sobel’s Favorite Players Championship Tournament Matchups: Fading Three Big Names

15 March, 2019, 03:59 | Author: Greg Lawrence
  • PONTE VEDRA BEACH FLORIDA- MARCH 15 Tiger Woods of the United States reacts after hitting his shot into the water on the 17th tee during the second round of The PLAYERS Championship on The Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass

Francesco Molinari, fresh off his win at Bay Hill on Sunday, said he drove north from Orlando with his caddie after the Arnold Palmer Invitational and had pizza to celebrate.

"It's just the golf course plays so much shorter in May than it does in March", he stated.

"It's not painful now", Woods said.

Woods said his neck first bothered him last summer at the British Open, where he was seen wearing kinesiology tape, and at times during a big stretch of tournaments during the FedEx Cup playoffs.

"If you get on a bad run here, I mean, this course really can dent your confidence because the severity of penalty is very extreme", Scott added.

Woods chalked up the ailment to his fused back, saying that with his swing, the forces have to move somewhere and in this situation, that happened to be his neck.

"I've got to stay fit".

I likely will not go insane in tournament play this week, and will instead hone in on constructing the safest cash game team possible this week.

He signed with Cleveland after he was released by the Ravens three years after the team took him with a first-round pick. Instead, they've done a very good job assembling some cheaper talent to put around Josh Allen.

"It's just part of the nature of the sport". If it's not my lower back, it's going to be in the hip; you know I have had four knee operations. "The rough isn't as long or as gnarly and when you miss the greens you are not having to contend with that Bermuda (grass) and guess how it's going to come out". He also enters this week's event hitting just 64.29 percent of fairways off the tee, which could cause major trouble at TPC Sawgrass. Reigning champion Webb Simpson returns to defend his title, teeing up in March for the first time at the event.

What television channel can I watch the 2019 Players Championship on in the United Kingdom?

"I'm 43 with four back surgeries so must manage what I have and understand that I'm going to have good weeks and bad weeks and try and manage as best I possibly can and not push it", Woods said Tuesday after a nine-hole practice round at The Players Championship.

"It started to get a little tighter and tighter as I played more holes in Mexico", Woods said. "I think that everything is headed on track towards April".

The Players is one of the most hard tournaments to contend around consistently - further evidence that Pete Dye's design does not suit one style of golf - with only six players in history to have won twice or more. His aspirations for 2019 are clearly more lofty than a year ago, when Woods's professional future was in serious doubt. "I just got back into something I do naturally", he said. Now it's about keeping it consistent, keeping my body solid and fresh and pliable and athletic.

"You can hit longer clubs in, and still, if you hit a good shot it's going to end up close to the hole", he noted.

"I am used to hitting - on 11, used to hitting iron in, and I had to hit 3-wood today", he explained about the par five.
