Big money but weather fears as golfers head to Players Championship

As for Seamus Power, he turned in one-under on his tournament debut, but dropped four shots in a five-hole stretch from the 10th before getting a shot back at the 16th in a two-over 74.

Fleetwood and Bradley shot seven-under 65s to lead by one stroke in the clubhouse from South Korea's Byeong Hun An and left-hander Brian Harman as world number one Dustin Johnson posted a 69 and Tiger Woods holed over 100 feet of putts in a 70. He used a variety of excuses, such as pros were coming in for practice and that a rare egg was found in the hole location and they were working to remove it safely. "I was waiting to try and find the ball on the green and I didn't see it, after I kind of heard it hit the pin".

"The course doesn't make you feel very comfortable at all, you are always a semi-bad shot from struggling to make par". It just shows you, stay patient and things can happen.

"It's a serious event, on a serious golf course with a serious field".

"I've played well here in the past and if I drive it well that's a massive key for me".

And for anyone that travels to Florida to play at TPC, that's the hole that you're shelling out a ton of money to play on.

"I was five under after the first round in Kenya previous year too - I'm not sure what it is about is about Nairobi!" said Hoey, who finished with three successive birdies to share fourth place behind England's Jack Singh Brar and South Africa's Louis de Jager. I had a good week in Mexico and last week at Bay Hill [Arnold Palmer Invitational] was also a good week [he finished tied 23rd]. "It's clearly the next step for me to win over here but winning's not easy and I've just got to keep plodding away", Fleetwood said. Fred Couples, Hal Sutton, Steve Elkington and Davis Love III obviously aren't here this week but there is one competitor in the field this week with a chance to join The Golden Bear and I bet you know who it is.

But his opening 67 left him just two shots behind Fleetwood and happy that the change in date from May to March meant the conditions were more conducive to aggressive play.

"I don't ike the idea of calling it a major because it hasn't been a major from the beginning", he told AAP.
