Craig Perks didn't hear that often in his career. Likewise in the betting markets, speculators are offered some much longer prices on golfers who might lead the field or be in the top 5-10 in a different tournament. I played some really good stuff.

They may aim to do it with less drama.

As for his health, Woods does not consider that a major concern. - When you've won 10 times - and amassed 42 top-10 finishes in the last five years - you expect to have positive memories to draw upon at nearly every PGA Tour stop. The 2019 Players Championship tee times begin on Thursday, with Tiger Woods, Webb Simpson, and Patrick Reed in one of the featured groups at 1:27 p.m. ET.

Woods revealed the neck problem had first "flared up" during last year's Open
Championship at Carnoustie, where he managed to get himself in the mix before finishing runner-up in the USPGA Championship at Bellerive the following month.

But the Kiwi recorded a second-round 68 that drew him level with the left-hander, who shot 75 on day two, and Mark Calcavecchia. "Not too many people can say that unless they've played in March". Because his recovery was supposed to take a few more weeks, he planned some family vacations and decided not to change his schedule.

In three of the last five seasons he has failed to break the top 110 in Driving Accuracy, and his early returns this season aren't encouraging.

Fellow Australian Cameron Smith also has a lacklustre history at the Players despite the Ponte Vedra Beach resident using Sawgrass as his home base to practise and play.

But the heart-stopping moments hadn't even started. Stenson gained over seven shots on the field tee-to-green over his next three rounds, including nearly eight and a half on his approach shots. "I have to stay fit and I have to stay as loose as I possibly can for as long as I play out here".

Cole Beasley to sign with Bills on four-year, $29M contract
The Bills' leading receiver last year was second-year player Zay Jones, who posted 56 receptions, 652 yards and seven touchdowns. Beasley has appeared in 103 games with the Cowboys, bringing in 319 passes for 3,271 yards and 23 touchdowns.

Toyota Is Building Japan's Fuel Cell-Powered Moon Rover
The rover, which is expected to be 6 meters long, 5.2 meters wide and 3.8 meters high, will feature Toyota's fuel cell technology. President of JAXA, Hiroshi Yamakawa said that Toyota joining its mission strengthens the agency's confidence in such a rover.

10 dead, including 6 children, in ‘unspeakably brutal’ shooting; 17 hurt
Sao Paulo Governor Joao Doria said as he stood outside the school that "our solidarity goes out to the families of the victims". Latin America's most populous nation has the largest number of annual homicides in the world, but school shootings are rare.

"I used to freak out on that hole", Baddeley told AAP.

His approach bounced into the rough between green and water, leaving him a 21-foot chip with a tough lie - which he holed for an eagle. I may throw him into one GPP but I will be underweight on him.

One of the players at TPC Sawgrass last week was Phil Mickelson, who after missing the cut in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, was not only checking out course but trying to decide if he was going to play in the tournament for the 26th time. Makes his fifth start in the Players, with his best result a tie for third in 2016 and he tied for 11th a year ago. "Whether it's visually or a particular hole or something - I mean, a lot of guys struggle putting at Riviera and I putt well there, which is weird".

"That was the easiest 72 I shot in my life", Perks joked.

The tournament had a March date until 2007 when it was moved to May.

Perks said years later on the Golf Channel to colleagues that he flourished in the heady environment.

"If nothing flares up, then I'll play, " he said.
