Leaderboard Jammed At Players Championship


Rory McIlroy believes he is ready to win one of the few big titles missing from his impressive CV when he competes in this week's Players Championship at Sawgrass.

"It gives you motivation", McIlroy said of the final round at Augusta National. I want to be out here, but it's fun to win. "I like that he shapes a lot of shots, he loves the draw shots but his best shot is probably the fade", said Cowen. "'The only time it kind of gets annoying a little bit is when they have the clicks on or the flash is on, or stuff like that". Ninety-nine percent of our fans are here to enjoy themselves and watch the greatest players in golf. "I want to play good golf".

"This is my ninth time here [at Sawgrass], so I'm not a spring chicken any more". "When I do come out, it's not a drag to come out, where some guys get into their mid-to-late 40s and they look unhappy to be out here". I haven't been quite right in contention but I've been close enough.

"I think playing less has helped me", he said.

McIlroy, who said a fan kept yelling his wife's name while he was playing at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, called for restrictions on alcohol sales at Tour events.

As for the Masters, where he was fifth behind Patrick Reed, he's adamant that he's over his final-round 74 and looking to use his appearance in the final group there as a springboard to more success this season.

"There's no way of faking it around this golf course", said Woods, who won his first U.S. Amateur at Sawgrass in 1994. He was headed to the range, feeling no need to work on any one thing. How do we get him back?




And the players seem to be on board with the idea of THE PLAYERS becoming a major as well. I don't think it's a coincidence it's a Ryder Cup year, but I'm so happy for him. He beat the old best opening round by a defending champ by one stroke.

A reinvigorated Poulter has been afforded opportunity to reset his career targets at the age of 42.

"I spent a lot of time working on my wedges last week because I nearly think you are better off just chipping out and leaving a full shot a lot of times instead of getting it up around the greens and having to chip out here", he said. "If I was to win again, I feel like it would be dreaming, as that's too hard". "I tend to putt from around the greens a bunch but you really have to be careful because it can make you look silly in a heartbeat". "Phil's attitude toward what he's doing at 47 has made me rethink what I'm doing".

"To play free, to have goals fresh in your mind, long-term goals, is a good position rather than week-to-week goals". Then you could bring your phone, but don't take pictures.

Another player who will not lack motivation this week is Justin Rose. Even more remarkable for the No. 1 player in the world is that he has shot in the 60s just three times in 30 rounds.

Nevertheless, the 14-time major champion will play the weekend for the seventh time in eight events he has played this year in his return from back surgery.
