Asked Tuesday at The Players Championship whether he would play next week's PGA Tour stop at Innisbrook Golf Resort in Palm Harbor, Woods said, "We'll see how everything goes". Woods says TPC Sawgrass in March is a much different beast than the May version. I have built into this year a little bit but the courses are tough.
There were concerns when Woods decided not to risk playing at Bay Hill last week as a result of an injury that had been troubling him "for a few weeks".
Woods said the neck strain first surfaced at the WGC-Mexico Championship, where he played through the pain to finish tied-10th. "It was getting to the point where it was affecting my set up, my back swing, my through swing". "It was just gradually getting worse". However, Johnson arrives at TPC Sawgrass with a lot to prove after taking the first-round lead at last year's tournament before sinking to a 17th place finish as a +2000 wager at online sports betting sites.
Don't call it the fifth major (there are only four, therefore there can be no fifth), but THE PLAYERS Championship still features one of the best fields of the year and one of the most unpredictable outcomes of the season.
Marc Leishman, Cameron Smith and Aaron Baddeley round out the Australian contingent at the 144-player tournament, which is being held in March for the first time since 2006.
Koepka will play alongside 2015 Players champion Rickie Fowler and three-time major victor Jordan Spieth over the opening two rounds at TPC Sawgrass and the 28-year-old admits his motivation has been hurt after some of his success.
Valspar is one of only two realistic tournaments remaining for Woods to play before the Masters in early April.
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.
"I've played three this year so far, and that's about right", he said. After doing my research, the players I've listed are the ones that I'm building my lineups around.
Last but certainly not least, I will end the article the ever popular sample lineup we like to do here at FantasyCPR. "So I'm curious to see if it's better for me or not". The only other cut he missed since then was the U.S. Open. He also has dealt with an Achilles' heel problem and what he described as a left arm issue at the 2013 U.S. Open.
Keeping his lower back more pliable will prevent a recurrence. "Hopefully I can get the knack of it eventually". "I think we all have to accept that you're going to hit good shots, and going to get some weird hopes, and get some really, really funky lies whether it's off the fairway or around the greens".
Now that we've got that out of the way, let's get into the DraftKings daily fantasy golf picks for The Players Championship 2019.
