Masters champion Sergio Garcia aces iconic 17th hole at The Players Championship

Masters champion Sergio Garcia aces iconic 17th hole at The Players Championship

Another glamor group follows them to the tee 11 minutes later as world No. 5 Jordan Spieth, No. 4 Hideki Matsuyama of Japan and five-times major victor Phil Mickelson set off on the revamped Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass.

For Garcia, The Players is his first tournament since winning the Masters in April.

"It played totally into my favor", he said.

As he told golfweek.com, He'd planned to play Tuesday but was a little exhausted after a Monday outing at Quail Hollow in Charlotte. I'm going to go get an MRI on Monday and might have to rest for a week or two. It pitched high right and then just spun back in the water.

Years ago, players were asked to give one word to describe the Players Stadium Course at the TPC Sawgrass.

Hacking tool was likely stolen from NSA: Expert on cyber attack
In Britain, the National Cyber Security Center said it is "working round the clock" with experts to restore vital health services. Elsewhere in Europe, the attack hit companies including Spain's Telefonica , a global broadband and telecommunications company.

Many top players watched good days go south quickly. Other changes were more cosmetic. "But I'm looking forward to getting back up there, actually getting a chance to play the weekend this year, and giving myself a chance to go back and do what I did in 2015".

"I've always felt that driving is a big advantage for me if I can drive the ball well", he said, per the AP.

Sterling play has been a challenge for Dustin Johnson at The Players Championship, but the American world number one is hoping this week's tournament will be more indicative of his recent success.

Mickelson, who won The Players in 2007 when it first moved from March to May, hasn't had a top 10 since then and hasn't played he weekend since 2012. Nonplussed, he gouged an iron shot from 198 yards out onto the green and made a 23-foot putt for eagle that put his score into red numbers for the first time all day. "But yeah, I didn't hit enough fairways, didn't hit enough greens". This is a course you have to just execute and hit great shots, and rather than go out and validate what I already know, I just worked on my game.

It seems this is the case for Masters victor Sergio Garcia, who repaired a stumbling start with a hole in one on probably the most iconic par three on the PGA Tour.

Massive ransomware attack strikes 99 countries
The attack by the ransomware, dubbed "WannaCry", is initiated through an SMBv2 remote code execution in Microsoft Windows. Home Secretary Amber Rudd said work was ongoing to identify the attackers, and that no patient data had been stolen.

Wallace, who carded 10 birdies in a flawless opening 63, added five more in the first 12 holes of his second round yesterday before play was suspended due to darkness, a knock-on effect of the time lost due to Thursday's thunderstorms. "Obviously, it was a hole-in-one, so if they don't react to that, then something's wrong". But it certainly isn't good news, even if he's able to continue playing, for a player who has traditionally struggled at the Players.

Later, Spieth said he probably shouldn't have made that big a deal out of it.

Blame that on the golf course, where anything can happen at just about any time.

The former US PGA champion broke down in tears after withdrawing from the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in March, the defending champion having played just six holes of his opening match against Pat Perez. An MRI revealed the rib fracture, and McIlroy missed tournaments in Abu Dhabi and Dubai as well as planned starts at the Genesis Open and Honda Classic on the PGA Tour. "I've got three shots that I work with on each wedge, and I hit those every day before I tee it up".

RAKE JOB: Jordan Spieth was so irritated by a poor rake job in the bunker left of the first green that he wanted to document the evidence.
