"I've felt like I've done a much better job of that over the last few years, and even putting myself in contention". Johnson seems to play well in spurts, and perhaps still has some momentum from that tournament. Other short odds to prevail are Justin Thomas (16/1), while five others are listed with 20/1 odds.

The tightness first appeared at the Genesis Open and became more of a concern at the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship eventually forcing him out of the Arnold Palmer. TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida is once again the host site, and the par-72 7,215 yard course is considered extremely hard.

Woods will try to do exactly that and join Jack Nicklaus as the only three-time winners of The Players.

"It would be nice if we never heard or got asked questions about the USGA, because they should be off to the side and hopefully the rules are here to help us and help us play, " Bradley said.

Paulson's third consecutive round of 69 on the Saturday (US time) kept him one shot ahead of Perks heading into the final round, with the last pairing being one no one would have predicted pre-tournament.

From the "In Your Life!" chip at the Masters, to the "Better Than Most!" putt on the island green 17th here at the TPC Sawgrass, Woods has always found the magic.

Fleetwood finished seventh at Sawgrass a year ago and third in the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday, when Molinari stormed through the field with a closing 64 to win his second PGA Tour title. In addition, his winning score of -18 was the lowest at Sawgrass in more than 20 years.
