Tiger Woods insists he's ready to go for THE PLAYERS

We’ll have to wait to find out if Tiger Woods will play the Valspar Championship

Woods added that a year ago was to see if he could even play and compete again on the PGA Tour. Then again, all of the Top 50 ranked players are in the field. So said Tiger Woods during his media availability on Tuesday trying to temper expectations.

Purse: $12.5 million. Winner's share: $2.25 million.

Adam Hadwin, however, doesn't like to get too geared up for any one hole on any course.

The 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass, the annual host of The Players Championship, is always one of the tournament's key storylines each year. Yardage: 7,189. Par: 72. Like many iconic venues in golf, this is one players look forward to annually, but also as kids, envisioning the pressure and stress associated with some of the more demanding closing holes in golf in an arena with an unprecedented atmosphere.

The Match Play is the week after Valspar and two weeks prior to the Masters. The course boasts a ton of water hazards, deep British-style bunkers, and waste areas as well.

Of course, no preview of TPC Sawgrass would be complete without mentioning the famous Hole 17.

We say ideal because his ball didn't even hit the green.

Given its level of difficulty, it's no wonder that only six golfers have won this event a few times. And no one seemed as surprised as the two-time PGA Tour victor. He ended a five-year victory drought at the Tour Championship for his 80th career win, and now only needs three more to surpass Sam Snead as the PGA Tour's all-time victor.

THE PLAYERS Championship is contested in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.

According to the latest oddsmakers, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy are co-favored to win, as each has 12/1 odds to win.

APPROACH SHOT: Tiger was forced to layup on the par-5, finding the left fairway near the green. He's finished inside the top 20 in each of his previous starts despite a troublesome putter. Given recent form and pure talent, Thomas winning isn't a insane thought whatsoever.

Fleetwood finished seventh at Sawgrass previous year and third in the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday, when Molinari stormed through the field with a closing 64 to win his second PGA Tour title.

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan ruled out his organisation creating its own rules on Wednesday, saying he is happy to leave that task to golf's two global governing bodies.

It may have moved from May to March, but in at least one respect the Players Championship is stuck in its place.

FedEx Cup leader: Xander Schauffele.

"I needed last week off". He is coming into the weekend with four top-six finishes in his last five appearances and has a great track record at Sawgrass with two second place finishes and an 11th place finish past year. Holmes and Justin Thomas, is at TPC Sawgrass and spent a few days with Woods last week when he practiced at home. It carries the prestige and the purse to stack up to the PGA Tour's premier tournaments, and TPC Sawgrass, one of golf's iconic courses, provides the flawless backdrop for Tiger Woods and the sport's biggest stars up and down the leaderboard.

Ireland confident of halting Wales' unbeaten run, says Sexton
Beirne has been injured through this championship and although returning impressively for Munster; he was ruled out of the French game after experiencing difficulties in training last week, but Schmidt confirmed the turnover specialist is in his thoughts.

49ers, Chiefs agree to terms on Dee Ford deal
However, with Ford's ability to rush the passer, adding that kind of talent is clearly the priority for the 49ers. It's unlikely Ford would be used in these packages as a "Leo" defensive end or "Sam" linebacker.
