Golf Corner: Stars versus TPC Sawgrass - all-time battle in The Players

Si-woo Kim continues to grow after 2017 Players win

Mental strength key to Kim's defence at Sawgrass

"I played the back nine today and it's absolutely flawless", he said. Some $35 million in prize money.

And that's why I'll be trusting him at [36.0] to carry my money around TPC Sawgrass this weekend in the Players Championship.

"Trust me, I'm fully aware of how special this is for me", he said, recalling that 12 months ago he could barely walk without severe pain, let alone swing a golf club. "You've got to have all facets of your game working if you want to contend around here". It can be demanding at times. You can't short-side yourself. "This is not a place to go out and try and force birdies, and I think that's kind of where I've gone the last few years that's got me in trouble". There was no jealousy there or envy.

TifEagle grass replaced Bermuda on the greens prior to last year's tournament and a handful of holes were modified.

The tournament's prize money this year is $11m with a winner's cheque of $1.98m - that is the exact same as The Masters.

Pelosi dismisses Democratic candidates running against her leadership: 'Just win, baby'
However, the odds are not in the Republicans' favor, as the president's party typically loses seats in the midterms. Emanuel Cleaver II (D-Mo.), told Politico .

"For me to not work as exhausting as I must be and to be egocentric in that mindset - 'nicely, I am burned out, it is OK to have an off yr.' That actually bugged me".

Three-time major victor Jordan Spieth hasn't won the event and spoke about its importance in his pre-tournament press conference, likening it to the majors. And what a memorable year 2017 was for Serge.

"It's a course where no one really has an advantage", said Rory McIlroy, who counts three top-10s - and three missed cuts - in his eight starts at TPC Sawgrass.

"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".

The Aussie won twice in three weeks during the spring of 2016, but hasn't won since, and this week plans to use the long putter without anchoring it.

Ashurst joins legal line-up as Japan's Takeda seals £46bn takeover of Shire
Takeda will pay $66.56 per Shire share: $30.33 in cash, with the rest in the form of 0.839 of a new Takeda share. Takeda is valued at about $34 billion and makes nearly half of its sales in Asia, and about a third in the U.S.

But Woods believes close friend Day is a now more complete golfer. The weather is lovely so I'm really looking forward to this week.

It wasn't always pretty Sunday.

The 40-year-old Englishman finished in a tie for fifth last week in the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow.

The star attraction is Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson paired in the same group for the first time since the 2014 PGA Championship. "It was probably a good thing that I watched LeBron's buzzer-beater this morning instead of last night". There are just five two-time winners at TPC Sawgrass, and not since Hal Sutton in 2000 has there been a repeat victor in any 10-year span.

Woods noted that Day's ascension and attempt to stay on top came with a family that includes two young children; several of the other top, young players have yet to experience all that fatherhood entails.

"I think just being a little forceful", Spieth said Tuesday. "That's cool to see. He's willing to do that again".
