Since 1982, the TPC at Sawgrass Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida has been the home of The Players. Then we'll see who's got some nerves.

Justin Thomas closely trails the favourites on this week's golf odds at +1600, ahead of Justin Rose and Rickie Fowler, who sit knotted at +2000, while two-time Players Championship victor Tiger Woods joins Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari at +2200.

"In March, that's not always the case".

The Rules of Golf saw a big overhaul, with the overall number reduced from 34 to 24 and many issues that caused penalties in the past - such as a ball moving on a green or hitting a ball twice - no longer do.

Tiger Woods says a sore neck that kept him out of Bay Hill last week is no longer painful. Martin Kaymer (2014), Woods (2001), Hal Sutton (1983) and Jack Nicklaus (1978) are the only players to win The Players Championship and a major in the same year.

Considering Woods has had four back surgeries, including a spinal fusion procedure in 2017 which forced a 10-month break, many were concerned Woods' latest ailment was serious. I'm 43 with four back surgeries so let's manage what I have and understand that I'm going to have good weeks and bad weeks and try to manage as best I possibly can and not push it. "There are times when over the years I've pushed it, I've won a few tournaments doing that but I've also cost myself a few years doing that".

"I've been between 6-iron and 5-iron on 17 to hit the shot", Woods said about the treacherous hole. "But it's not the best course for me".

This tournament will feature almost all of the top golfers in the world. He's one of 23 golfers in the field this week who has played the tournament in its previous incarnation in March.

"My back feels a lot better", Day told Golf Digest after playing 18 holes.

Following the co-favorites Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy, Thomas is the next man up, and with good reason.

Day saluted the work of Pete and Alice Dye in creating a course that could hold up to such a variety of conditions and challenge so many different players.

Once again, the Northern Irishman was in the final pairing at last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Steve Stricker received a sponsor exemption and will make his first PGA Tour start since he was appointed Ryder Cup captain. No one has ever come off a win and then backed it up with another at THE PLAYERS at the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass.

Monahan, who recently reminded players that the tour had been heavily involved in the rewriting of the rules, on Wednesday strongly defended the "fantastic" U.S. Golf Association and Royal & Ancient governing bodies.

He believes a maiden PGA Tour win is within his grasp.

Another player battling injury concerns is 2016 champion Jason Day.

Koepka's drive power should pay dividends at TPC Sawgrass this week. Sergio is coming off a tie for ninth in the Honda and a tie for sixth in the WGC-Mexico.

For the first two rounds, Woods is grouped with defending champion Webb Simpson and Masters champion Patrick Reed.
