No longer a favourite, Woods happy to be in Players field

He has yet to finish worse than a tie for 22nd in his nine individual tournaments.

"I know what to expect there". "Just wait for something good to happen".

Woods is around a 33/1 betting outsider at the TPC Sawgrass, a course where he twice has won the PGA Tour's flagship event - in 2001 and again in 2013.

"Am I one of them?" he asked Tuesday.

"Kind of approach it from a more patient viewpoint this year".

The 2018 Players Championship, which starts Thursday from TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl. will attract wagers from amateurs, professional bettors, and everyone in between.

Mickelson has said of his 2007 victory, "I can't believe I won here".

"I played the back nine today and it's absolutely ideal", he said.

"All I wanted to do this year was give myself chances". I mean, I'm still aiming a little bit right, but I'm just trying to move it back to the left where I'm aiming straight now, so I don't have to feel like I have to drop it on the inside and hit this big old draw. "I'm definitely looking forward to this week".

Fowler will try to become the seventh to win the Players multiple times, joining Jack Nicklaus, Fred Couples, Steve Elkington, Hal Sutton, Davis Love III and Tiger Woods.
