Early Players lead for Hughes and McGirt

According to numerous world's best, there are many ways to play TPC Sawgrass and be successful. Those were the only blemishes on a round of 67, the fifth consecutive Players tournament that he's carded 67 or better in at least one of the four rounds.

The exception at The Players Championship is that Thursday offered a sneak preview into why the TPC Sawgrass is so entertaining to the fans, aggravating to the players and suspenseful for all until the crystal trophy is awarded.

First, he watched Masters champion Sergio Garcia hit a gap wedge that took one big hop, landed just behind the cup and disappeared for a hole-in-one.

J.B. Holmes, Alex Noren of Sweden, Chez Reavie and Jon Rahm of Spain are a shot back after shooting 68s, and 11 players, including Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa, Francesco Molinari of Italy, Daniel Berger and Rafa Cabrera Bello of Spain are another stroke back after finishing in 69. The last piece of stress came on the final hole when trees block his way to the green. "There's a lot of holes where I would just love to tee it up and rip a driver, but I can't", he said. But Garcia clawed his way back to a 73 thanks to the eighth ace on the 17th hole in Players history.

Screen grab from C-SPAN of Sen. "This is nothing new here", he told reporters at the Capitol. That committee also invited Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan to testify.

"It wasn't ideal golf, but I managed it really well and made a few nice saves when I needed to and made a few nice putts".

"I wouldn't have expected a round like that, but I knew my game was trending", said the 26-year-old from Ontario, like McGirt, a one-time PGA Tour victor. "They have tried to soften a lot of the slope, or they have had to soften a lot of slope on the greens and they have done a nice job at that, but I think they have to look at the areas around the greens to see how best to have a good challenge out there".

After birdieing the second hole to get within three shots of the lead, things went bad for the reigning Masters champ. He didn't catch it perfectly, and the wind kept it out to the right.

The shot of the day undoubtedly goes to Sergio Garcia. 2 and 12. Johnson rallied late with a 25-foot eagle putt on the 16th hole.

That's the Tooth: Celtics guard Thomas has more dental work
Washington would go on a 26-0 run over five minutes and 59 seconds, forcing six Celtics turnovers and making 10 of their 13 shots. The reason the Wizards have been able to go on these insane runs is because of the fact that Boston keeps giving the ball away.

Scott's shot hopped on a cart path and when he took his free relief, the ball buried in thick grass with trees blocking his view. But the players have a point, if a mark is missed by a yard or two the penalty shouldn't be a ball in the water. He still has stressful shots to hit to complete his victory. "You had to position yourself well on the greens today and unfortunately I didn't really do that". I think that's just because it's been playing so hard this week. "But it just didn't cut". He made three bogeys on the back nine and then, torn between a 9-iron and a wedge on the 17th, he opted for a wedge to make sure it didn't go over the back of the island.

The culprit, as if the TPC Sawgrass isn't enough, was a wind so treacherous that only one player who teed off after 11:30 a.m. broke 70.

Emiliano Grillo and Ian Poulter combined to shoot 6 under, and they're both three back.
