- Former world number ones Rory McIlroy and Jason Day have different comfort levels entering the Players Championship - one knowing what it takes to win at TPC Sawgrass, and the other still seeking to solve the puzzle of the famous course.
Zach Johnson heads to THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass this week looking to stay on course and make another cut.
"The first time you get on some Pete Dye courses they're very odd, and they set you up at wrong angles, and visually they're just a little bit not what you want to see, but you learn to deal with it and play the way he wants you to play", McIlroy said. A tie for sixth in 2014 remains the closest that he has come to adding the so-called fifth major and the $1.98 million (about £1.46 million) first prize to his collection of four major titles. This is one of the toughest golf tournaments to win, so hard that since its inception in 1974, nobody has ever won in consecutive years and only six players have won it a few times.
"This is my ninth time here so I'm no spring chicken anymore", he said.
As rank outsider Kim Si-woo showed by winning here last year, however, that it is an unpredictable event.Winners over the years have ranged from favourites such as Woods, Phil Mickelson, Greg Norman and David Duval, to the likes of outsiders such as South Korean Kim, New Zealander Craig Perks, South African Tim Clark and Canadian Stephen Ames. It's taken a while for me to figure that out.
"If I can put myself in the final group of some other events coming up, then hopefully I'll have some recent experience, and I'll deal with it a bit better [than he did at The Masters]", he said.
The next step is having a chance on Sunday. He needed only 12th place alone last week at Quail Hollow (he tied for 21st). Yes, that's the same Michael Campbell that won a U.S. Open. But you start to appreciate the design of the golf course and appreciate the game-plan and the tactics you need to be successful around here. We're not even halfway through the season. The point is that we get all caught up in what's denoted a major and what's not, and we forget that it was all arbitrary to begin with.
"It gives you motivation".
A field that includes each of the top 50 golfers in the world will vie this week for the biggest non-major paycheck in professional golf.
"The Players Championship - I like the golf course", Johnson said. "I just didn't have a feel for the golf course, and I just didn't make the adjustments". "So as I've gotten older, I've had to work harder to be able to maintain the physical ability to go practice as hard as I want to and recover and so forth".
"It's still not quite there". Rory McIlroy didn't break par until his fourth time at The Players Championship.
