The PLAYERS Championship 2018: Odds & Betting Trends

Wells Fargo Championship- Round Three

RORY McILROY has revealed spending time on the beach has given him the belief he can add the Players Championship to his glittering golfing CV. Out of the entire field, Stenson has played this course the 8th-best, gaining almost 20 strokes at TPC Sawgrass in 12 starts. The top six picks in the PGA Tour Fan Popularity Draft are packed into two groups! It ranges from Greg Norman to Lee Janzen, from Tiger Woods to Craig Perks, from Henrik Stenson to Tim Clark. Players who gain in Strokes gained: around the green this week will be able to save more shots than usual, as it's not uncommon for players to make double bogey when just 25 yards from the hole.

The next step is having a chance on Sunday.

Thomas' best result at TPC Sawgrass was third in 2016. A player with his gifts should have won more than the four PGA Tour and two European Tour titles he now has to his name. It's also good I've already played here a few times, I know what to do, know what the conditions are and know where the misses should be."It's a week where I feel well prepared for".

"It's the strongest field in golf, and it's a golf course where no one really has an advantage so it's a very wide-open field".

Attitude is everything in golf, especially on this Pete Dye-designed course created on land that used to be a swamp. I think the way it played in March, I kind of preferred over the firm, fast.

"I spent a lot of time working on my wedges last week because I nearly think you are better off just chipping out and leaving a full shot a lot of times instead of getting it up around the greens and having to chip out here", he said.

McIlroy is not alone in his struggles.

Jordan Spieth may be one of the favourites for glory at 16/1, but given that the American has failed to make the cut in each of his last three showings at Sawgrass, he could be one to avoid this week. He tied for fourth. Before you dismiss the thought out of hand, consider this: going into the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow, he had played in 16 events, missing just two cuts and withdrawing from a further tournament because of injury.

Last year, St. Johns County Commissioners approved $2.8 million in incentives for the $81 million project. Last year's tournament was also the one that marked a turning point for Ian Poulter, when he finished joint runner-up, secured his playing privileges for the year and went on to re-establish himself in the world's top 50.

The former world No. 1 also acknowledged that when he had his problems with chipping a year ago, prior to his back surgery, Mickelson reached out to him.

We dove into the course a bit more, analyzing past trends at THE PLAYERS, and arrived at these key stats for the week...

With all eyes on Fowler in that 2015 playoff, he dropped his tee shot at the par-3 17th to 5 feet and made birdie on the famed island green.

Woods has won twice at Sawgrass. But he has been perplexed by the Stadium Course, just like so many others.
