THE Players’ Championship returns to the awesome TPC Sawgrass with Rory, Jordan, Jason and Rickie and a lot more notables taking part.
Justin Rose had a missed cut after his T10 at The Masters but came back with a solo third last week at Wells Fargo. He looked good at Quail Hollow and his GIR stat was over 72% which will come in handy here.
He’s been trying a new putting technique but it let him down at the weekend when he missed some short ones. Hopefully he’s sorted it out and is challenging on Sunday.
One man who has everything in his locker for this course is Hideki Matsuyama. With eight top-20 finishes including a win at the Waste Management he’s having a good season. With driving accuracy of 61.39% (91st), GIR 70.12% (19th) and putting average of 1.72 (10th) the Japanese player is another to watch.
Chris Kirk has not had the greatest of seasons but over the last three tournaments has steadily improved. Since missing the cut he has had a T23, T13 and T5 in his last three outings. He has had two T13s here in each of the last two years and was leader after 54 holes in 2015.
