THE PLAYERS Championship - First Round

THE PLAYERS Championship - First Round

The Irish Open has already received one major boost after sponsors Dubai Duty Free committed to a four-year extension of its sponsorship deal with an agreement running through to 2022.

But the 2015 victor then pushed his drive too far right at the sixth and suffered the misfortune of his ball appearing to get stuck up a tree, forcing him back to the tee and leading to a double-bogey six.

Thomas' approach shot from the second cut found the right rough just short of the green.

"It would be wonderful if Tiger did commit", he said. "I didn't have much of what I wanted". "I was playing better than that".

"I think he's just going to keep improving", Stricker said.

Woods finished with an even par 72 during today's first round at Sawgrass.

"I actually really like it", said Mickelson, who is brand ambassador and equity holder in the menswear brand Mizzen and Main. I didn't quite swing it right today, and I didn't quite have the shape, ball flight. "With these greens as soft as they are, I didn't take advantage of the opportunities I had to really shoot a good number".

Woods birdied the par-3 third hole, to get back to under par. This golf course identifies your faults really quickly, so the last two days it's just been really solid, driving the ball well. Story of his round.

Fowler, however, seemed to be playing fine, sitting at five under for his round through 14 holes and three under for the tournament. He gave back a shot with a closing bogey on the front nine. He then hit his tee shot in the water at the seventh for another double, leading to a score of 71 and a total of 145.

The 14-time major victor endured a rollercoaster back nine en route to posting an even-par 72 and he sits six shots back of a six-way tie for the lead.

Fowler missed an 18-foot birdie try, Woods missed his 8-footer for par and the moment was gone by the time the group began the lengthy walk across property, past the clubhouse toward the first tee to underwhelming fanfare.

"No, no, I have my own struggles".

"That's golf, unfortunately", Woods said.

"It says that should you can play golf on the highest degree, think about how comfy it's within the workplace". But with several players out on the course with a shot at going lower than minus 10, Woods wasn't assured a spot in Rounds 3 and 4 in the so-called "fifth major". In typical Tiger fashion, he believes he's just a couple of low numbers away from being in the mix.

"So, yeah, I have to watch out, I can't practice as much as I would like, but I played enough early this year and especially more than I thought I would, and so I have got - I was able to get my playing feels back and so to be able to maintain them is a little bit easier now than I thought it would have been this time of year".
