Sobel’s Favorite Players Championship Tournament Matchups: Fading Three Big Names

Sobel’s Favorite Players Championship Tournament Matchups: Fading Three Big Names”

What is the total prize fund of the 2019 Players Championship? .

Host venue Sawgrass is a tricky test that is particularly unforgiving towards first timers. - When you've won 10 times - and amassed 42 top-10 finishes in the last five years - you expect to have positive memories to draw upon at nearly every PGA Tour stop.

This time around, then, we're looking for a veteran who has plenty of experience in this event. Those are the little things that you need to pay attention to.

Woods revealed the neck problem had first "flared up" during last year's Open
Championship at Carnoustie, where he managed to get himself in the mix before finishing runner-up in the USPGA Championship at Bellerive the following month.

Long before the back surgeries, he had four surgeries on his left knee, the worst of them in 2008 a week after he won the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.

Rory McIlroy, for example, has placed inside the top 10 on three occasions and missed the cut three times in nine starts. He has not finished out of the top 20 in his three starts this year, though he not finished closer than eight shots of the victor. It's tough physically, too, and that's reflected in the fact that just one player aged 38 and above has won since 2006.

"I (then drove) to Palm Beach from Orlando and saw a spinal surgeon", Day said.

Woods is scheduled to play in a group with defending Players champion Webb Simpson and reigning Masters champion Patrick Reed.

"Everything is good", the 14-time major champion told Golfweek on Monday.

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan made that clear Wednesday during a news conference at TPC Sawgrass, where the tour's signature event, the Players Championship, begins Thursday.

Dustin Johnson is the favourite at 12/1 and fits the bill, having finished 17th in this event a year ago but notched a career-best T12 in 2017.

One possible explanation is that TPC Sawgrass - unlike so many venues on Tour - hasn't offered preferential treatment to the game's longest hitters, whose ranks include Rose.

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".

The American had to pull out last minute of the Arnold Palmer Invitational due to a neck injury, however he has since confirmed his recovery and is fully-fit to try and claim his third Players title.

Billy Horschel, meanwhile, is a great outside bet at 80/1.

Woods played between five and six times before the Masters during younger and healthier times over the last 15 years.
