Patience is 15th club for Jordan Spieth in Players Championship

Woods is paired with Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler on Thursday and Friday. He reached No. 1 for the first time with his runner-up finish in the 2015 PGA Championship, and he returned to the top on three more occasions for a total of 26 weeks.

Woods is not quite ready to take on the role of a ceremonial player but will need to improve every facet of his game to have a chance against perhaps the strongest field of the year.

"Phil and I have a great banter - we give each other a lot of needle", the 14-time major victor revealed.

"The venue is fantastic, everyone who played a year ago really enjoyed it".

"I don't want to lose it", Johnson said of No. 1.

Woods has won twice at Sawgrass. That includes the top five players in the world, all of whom have a mathematical chance to be No. 1 by the end of the week. He hit three shots into the water and finally got to the green in eight and two-putted for double digits on that hole.

"If you don't feel too comfortable over the driver, you have some people to stop that golf ball for you before it goes out of bounds", he said. Have your say on our Facebook page. Unfair? Maybe, but they are all playing the same course.

"Last year's results don't really factor much at (TPC) Sawgrass".

"I feel a lot of departments are working but my scoring hasn't been as good as I would like it to be".

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.

"That gives me confidence going forward knowing that if I just hit it half decent I'm going to play good".

Detroit Golf Club, located between Woodward and Livernois avenues, just south of Seven Mile Road, features a massive, swanky clubhouse, ample practice facilities and 36 holes, with the North Course likely to be used for the tournament. "Jordan is an awesome player, and we're all looking forward to seeing what he'll do this year against some strong competition".

"And it sucked to have to play against him". The game is getting much better. A three-time victor of the Claret Jug, he has not contested the game's oldest major since 2015 because of injury.

"We give each other the needle".

Only six players have ever won the Players Championship on multiple occasions-Jack Nicklaus won three, while Fred Couples, Steve Elkington, Hal Sutton, Davis Love III and Woods all have two. It's been either way for our entire careers. It's not easy to get into this field, you've got to be top-50 in the world or have full PGA TOUR status. It is often dubbed golf's "fifth major".

"I felt like it handcuffed me", McIlroy said.
