McIlroy Grouped with Spieth and Day at PLAYERS

1.38pm – Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia and K.J. Choi

Each of these players are past champions, but they have been experienced very mixed success recently. Mickelson’s not been performing well outside the larger events, such as the PGA Championship and the Masters, and ended up missing the PLAYERS cut in the past two years. Garcia hasn’t enjoyed a U.S. victory since 2010. He did well at Sawgrass in 2013, but struggled against Tiger Woods later in the weekend. Choi won the tournament in 2011 and finished MC, T48 and T13 in the subsequent years.

1.49pm – Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and Martin Kaymer

The two most recent PLAYERS’ champions, Woods and Kaymer, will play alongside the 2004 winner on Thursday. Injury prevented Woods for competing at TPC Sawgrass last year, so you can expect him to be equally as hungry as Kaymer to ‘retain’ the title. This will be Woods first start since the Masters.
