  • Rickie Fowler hits a hole-in-one on the 17th during practice at Sawgrass ahead of the 2017 Players Championship

The Players Championship has long been called golf's unofficial fifth major championship and always brings golf fans a great show.

Casey, 40, underwent treatment on the problem upon his arrival at TPC Sawgrass on Wednesday but was advised by medical staff to bypass the tournament in order to prevent further damage.

As world No.32 Kiradech prepares to challenge the world's best at the Players Championship, which starts today, Cowen believes the big-hitting Thai will thrive on the world's premier tour when he eventually earns his playing rights in the United States.

Ponte Vedra: Golfer Anirban Lahiri, the only Indian to feature at the prestigious Players Championship, would be hoping to stay inside the world's top-100 with his performance here. "Yeah, a few - I mean, it's amusing, like I started staying on the beach a few years ago, and that's made the event a lot more enjoyable. I would love to add this event to my CV".

"To hold all those events concurrently was special". But I didn't putt well enough. I did everything well for, I guess, a few years there. "It wasn't just for one week". "I've already been there once this year, and I all I wanted to do this year was give myself chances". I struggled with it.

"I mean, he's been on Fred's bag twice when he won here, and so he kept saying, kept holding it over my head that Fred has got two wins here and you don't".

"I was a little stubborn the first few years I came here and was trying to sort of break away from that, but, yeah, you just have to play this golf course a certain way and be a little bit better than everyone else with your irons and your wedges, and that's usually a good combination around here".

McIlroy endured just the second winless season of his career in 2017 and although victory in the Arnold Palmer Invitational ensured that would not happen again this year, he failed to complete the career grand slam in the Masters last month.

"I need to get the pace of these greens here".

"Am I one of them?" he asked.

"Now, I don't know if he wants a piece of me, but I just think it would be something that would be really fun for us to do, and I think there would be a lot of interest in it if we just went straight to the final round".
