Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Among Those Alive and Well in PGA Players Championship
In the last 10 years, the winner of the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass has been from the United States of America just four times. So when Roberto Castro finished the first round at nine under par on Thursday, golf fans around the world were taken aback.
Not to mention, Castro has never won a PGA tour event and at age 27, he remains a relative unknown in most golf circles. Friday is going to be a different story and it’s hard pressed to bet on a younger golfer like Castro when the best players in the world are playing equally impressive golf. The field behind Castro is riddled with major victories and the top two golfers in the world are both lurking within the top six.
Tiger Woods has had a few troubles at Ponte Vedra considering the great one hasn’t taken home the hardware of the Players Championship since 2001. Nonetheless, Tiger still has to be the favorite this weekend with his No. 1 ranking being a testament to his fantastic 2013 play. Woods will be teeing off with last year’s Players Championship winner in Matt Kuchar–who also happens to be in the race at two under par.
This tournament seems like the perfect opportunity for Rory McIlroy to get his competitive juices flowing once again because his issues in 2013 have been well-documented. Thus far this season, Rory has made more headlines for reasons unrelated to golf rather than his prowess on the golf course.
With all of these great golfers jockeying for position, it’s going to be wild when things unfold this weekend and culminate on Sunday when one golfer is graced with a Players Championship trophy.
