Garcia makes hole-in-one at Players' famed island-green 17th

Doyle BarkerMay 14, 2017

"The coolest thing would be the kick-off at El Clasico, for sure, as that was one of the most fantastic experiences
I've had", said Garcia, speaking on the eve of the Players Championship at Sawgrass, as he reflected on all the stuff he'd been up to over the past five weeks after finally landing his first major at the
74th attempt. "I am good friends with Justin as well and it was obviously tough to see him lose but at the same time to see Sergio win, especially at Augusta, where he has had his demons in the past.just so happy for him and the emotions", McIlroy said in quotes reported by the BBC.

That was certainly the message that Players Championship fans, some of whom may have given the formerly major-less Spaniard a hard time in years past, imparted to the newly crowned Masters champion during a nine-hole practice round on Wednesday at TPC Sawgrass. He started as Tiger Woods' rival as a 19-year old teenager. "I've always said my goal is to keep becoming better".

I mean, we've had our differences here and there, but you know, we've had great talks at the Ryder Cup and also at Rory's wedding.

World number three Day, who missed the cut in his last event in New Orleans, tied the Stadium Course record here a year ago with an opening 63 and the Australian became the tournament's fifth wire-to-wire champion.

T3 - Chez Reavie (-4): Reavie was all over the place, but with seven birdies on the card he's putted his way into the mix as a top-100-level player that scored better than most of the names above him on the world golf rankings.

Scott, who won the 2013 US Masters, hit his tee-shot a little right of the pin before watching it roll back down the slope at the front of the green and into the water.

William McGirt and Mackenzie Hughes are joint-leaders after the opening round.

Garcia admitted he struggled to get back into competitive mode early in the round, adding: "I thought it was going to be easier than it was". It's been a busy week and at the beginning I wasn't really in the tournament.

While Padraig didn't go in to too much detail, Sergio did as he was speaking ahead of The Players Championship this weekend. He said, "It was nice to see it bounce and spin back into the hole".

"I hit a good shot, but it can go there, it can go three yards past".

But the former PGA Championship victor has not been at his best so far this year with just four top-25 finishes in eight events. It was just a tiny bit right.

"The desire is starting to come back to try to reach the top again". "I needed it after the start I had". Willy Wilcox made a hole-in-one on the same hole in the second round previous year.
