Players Championship odds, picks: Who's a good bet at golf's 5th major

Molinari, the reigning British Open champion, will enter the Players Championship 2019 full of confidence, and his strong iron play and prolific ball-striking ability suit TPC Sawgrass extremely well.

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

Woods missed a scheduled tournament for the first time since returning a year ago from spinal fusion surgery, and said it was more to make sure a growing problem that started last month in Los Angeles did not get worse.

Killen - who is known as part of fellow former FedExCup champion Justin Thomas' team - is helping the 80-time PGA TOUR victor with his putting stroke.

For more than a decade, The Players Championship has been held in May, but this year, it's returning to March. It comes after Woods produced six three-putts in each of his last two tournaments, the Genesis Open and the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship, to quell any real challenge. It's not a must-play for me because I'm 48 and I've played it 25 times and I've already won it. "I'm 43 with four back surgeries so let's manage what I have and understand that I'm going to have good weeks and bad weeks".

Huffman and Loughlin charges shatter actresses’ clean images
Macy may have avoided being charged over the college admissions scandal because the incriminating emails were sent by his wife. Giannulli appeared in court Tuesday, where a magistrate judge set a $1 million bond and ordered him to surrender his passport.

I've known about this change in schedule for nearly a year now but it is weird to be talking about the Players Championship in March.

"I don't see any problems with Tiger Woods' putting, other than that you might go simply to the age factor that certainly does play into it". That, essentially, was the message delivered by Tiger Woods as he explained his decision to sit out last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational while, at the same time, insisted he is on track for next month's Masters. It's an unusually spartan record for a man who hasn't been outside the top two slots in the world golf ranking since last summer. His accuracy tee-to-green is ideal around TPC Sawgrass and a T7 finish here last year proposes he has a plan that could see him become the second English victor in the States this year. However, he also has five missed the cut five times.

Sergio Garcia, Spain - Before winning the Masters in 2017, Garcia's biggest victory came in the 2008 Players Championship, when he beat Paul Goydos in a playoff.

The Australian has started 2019 in good form, putting himself in contention twice to end his two-year winless drought. It also correctly predicted Brooks Koepka's (9-1) victory at the CJ Cup earlier this season.

The Players is one of the most hard tournaments to contend around consistently - further evidence that Pete Dye's design does not suit one style of golf - with only six players in history to have won twice or more. The Champion Golfer of the Year was debuting his new Calloway clubs at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and is clearly enjoying the new equipment in the bag.
