Tiger Woods reveals secret behind his success ahead of The Players Championship

Jason Day is one step closer to regaining that coveted top spot in the world.

Woods finished 55th at last week's Wells Fargo Championship having returned to golf last November. "I played pretty well past year except for the 18th hole and it'll be nice to get back out there and exact some revenge", pointed out the Indian golfer.

"I had all four major championships, I had The Players, I had two World Golf Championships, and all the biggest events I had won at the same time", Woods said. For me to not work as hard as I should be and to be selfish in that mindset - well, I'm burned out, it's OK to have an off year. The Stadium Course has a history of not favoring any one style of play, and the list of winners at the PGA Tour's premier event illustrates that, going from Greg Norman to Lee Janzen, from Tiger Woods to Craig Perks, from Henrik Stenson to Tim Clark. Willett has since lost his PGA Tour playing privileges. The backslide has been frustrating for Scott, who at this time four years ago was No. 1 in the world but now has gone almost a year without a top-10 finish.

TifEagle grass replaced Bermuda on the greens prior to last year's tournament and a handful of holes were modified. The player pool will never be more stacked than it is right now. That means that you'll be able to find a few Top 25 ranked players in the 7K-8K range.

The Players Championship takes place Thursday-Sunday from TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Since then he's a combined 10-over par for 122 holes.

"We get up at four in the morning, here at five straight out onto the course and finish at about nine".

"A good example would be like on No. 1 out here, pin is front left".

"It's a Pete Dye course and I find it very awkward off the tee".

'I slept on sofas; now I'm in the Premier League'
Warnock even has time for some brevity in his post-match conference as he reflects on playing in the Premier League next season. Etheridge is also goalkeeper for the Philippines national team, known as the Azkals.

Players who've done well here do their greatest damage with their irons (or wedges/fairway woods).

The 24-year-old also believes that Rickie Fowler doesn't get the credit he deserves for winning the tournament in 2015.

"I just kind of assumed that it would come easy to me", Spieth said. He hit three shots into the water and finally got to the green in eight and two-putted for double digits on that hole.

Such has been its growing stature since its inauguration in 1974, commentators and golfers have labelled it as the unofficial "fifth major" in the men's game.

"You have to play well here, and there's no way of faking it around this golf course". Keith Mitchell was added to the Players Championship field to replace Casey. The 137 yard par 3, is anything but simple and has made countless memories over the years.

McIlroy has his own star group with Spieth and Justin Thomas, three players in their 20s who have combined for eight majors.
