Tiger backs Day to regain golf's No.1 spot

Throw in one of the richest prize purses in the world of golf at US$10.5 million, this showpiece event on the PGA Tour glitters amongst the rest where its home venue at TPC Sawgrass offers what players believe to be the truest test in the game.

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

I thought of it a couple of weeks ago when, on just the third hole of the first day in the Zurich Classic in Louisiana, he stripped off to his underpants and waded into alligator infested waters to play a shot.

Judging by McIlroy's first few starts at the Pete Dye design, it's a wonder as to why he ever bothered to return. "I'm ready to kind of get back on that first-year path but doing it the right way".

The Travelers Championship is a little more than a month away.

"This is my ninth time here, so I'm not a spring chicken anymore". It's happened to us all at one time or another, though - I still have nightmares about laying Iceland because they couldn't possibly beat England at Euro 2016.

Playing the final round with eventual victor Patrick Reed, McIlroy was never a factor after missing a four-foot eagle putt at the second hole.

AAA Michigan: Statewide average gas prices unchanged
Michigan's lowest average price was in the Marquette area for the fourth consecutive week, where it was about $2.78 per gallon. With a looming deadline to extend or end sanctions on Iran, U.S. oil prices rose to $70 for the first time since 2014, Monday.

Tiger Woods, the only two-time victor in the field this week, said Pete Dye's Stadium Course generally has players hitting from the same spot.

"So, it gives you motivation". For people who are newer to the golf scene, THE PLAYERS is not actually a major, there are only four majors in golf, however, everything about the tournament replicates what a major golf tournament is. We're not even halfway through the season.

McIlroy, a Manchester United fan, also offered his best wishes to Alex Ferguson as the club's former manager seeks to recover from a brain haemorrhage. "I've already been there once this year, and I all I wanted to do this year was give myself chances". "He's a very driven individual". - In an effort to reverse his slide down the world rankings in time to make the U.S. Open, Adam Scott has returned to a familiar piece of equipment. Has he come in in better form?

"When it gets firm and fast, it's hard", Thomas said.

"I don't usually bring Col into tournament, only because I typically like to work with him before events", Day said. I feel like it makes me focus a bit more and dial in on what I'm trying to do and focus on what I need to do, because there's going to be a lot going on.

"It's still not quite there. So I actually put a lot of it down to that".

Day heads to Sawgrass in Florida this week with two wins underneath his belt, similar to he did in 2016.
