But Moore avoided the hazards, attacked the flag, and scratched a number one into his scorecard - only the ninth ace at that hole in The Players Championship tournament history, and the first since Sergio Garcia's hole-in-one in 2017.

Ryan Moore play from the fairway on the sixth hole during the first round of THE PLAYERS Championship golf tournament at TPC Sawgrass - Stadium Course. - Vaughn Taylor wasn't among those who lobbied to convince the PGA Tour that The Players Championship should be moved from May to March, but he should have been. Fred Couples, Hal Sutton, Steve Elkington and Davis Love III obviously aren't here this week but there is one competitor in the field this week with a chance to join The Golden Bear and I bet you know who it is. The win also marked Johnson's fourth Top-10 finish in five outings going into the 46th edition of the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Verde Beach, Florida.

Thousands of golfers, from major winners to weekend duffers who shell out close to $500 for a round on the public course, have watched their balls plunk into the murky waters guarding the infamous green.

Dustin Johnson is a +1200 co-favorite on the PLAYERS Championship odds even though DJ has yet to win this tournament and has just two Top 25s at the PLAYERS in his career.

McIlroy was flawless in his performance, dropping no shots on his way to the 67, however he will be frustrated that perhaps he was not one or two shots better off.

Kiradech, 29, recalled his horror show on the 17th hole a year ago where he was six over on that hole alone during the weekend rounds. "You have to hit the ball well, have a good mental game and have some good luck to beat these guys", he said. "It's hard these days but I'm trying my best".

He also has some good memories from the hole, however. "Driving is a strength for me normally and if you put it in play all the time in general you have a big advantage".

For Mickelson, the 17th is an unforgiving hole that demands a player commit completely to his shot.

"A fast start on the front nine will be really handy; I need to be under par making the turn", Scott said.

"It's an all-or-nothing type shot".
