Players Championship: Tiger Woods facing anxious afternoon wait at Sawgrass

How to watch Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson go head-to-head today Tiger Woods heading for this year's Irish Open: rumours

"Three-time Champion Golfer Tiger Woods plans to tee it up at Carnoustie for The 147th Open after confirming his entry into golf's original Championship", read the statement from the organizers. The most light-hearted moment of the day came on 18, when Woods' caddy Joe LaCava tripped over Phil Mickelson's golf bag and fell to the ground.

"I should be hitting them inside flag length, and I didn't do that at all today", said Woods, who is playing in his eighth tournament this year after coming back from spinal fusion surgery.

On Johnson, Bale added: "I really love watching Dustin Johnson play".

Both players seemed to embrace the grouping, with Mickelson suggesting they skip "all the ancillary stuff of a tournament and just go head-to-head and have kind of a high-stake, winner-take-all match". There are a lot of rumours and there is a lot of speculation and if news comes our way, trust me, we will be shouting about it.

When asked about Mickelson's comments, Tiger didn't say much.

Pausing for effect, before flashing a smile, the former world No.1 - who has confirmed he will play at the British Open in Carnoustie in July - said: "I'm definitely not against that".

Tiger hit driver yesterday but selects a 3-wood today. "We have to figure out a way to put it together, and I have not done that consistently this year so far". "Fifteen years ago my record against him sucked, and now it's OK". I was pretty good the first time I switched.

"He's obviously the best player that's ever played the game", Bale said, speaking ahead of The Players Championship.

"I had good touch with my speed, I just didn't quite read them exactly the best a couple times", he said.

Another great chance went begging at the second, although he lifted himself with a confident stroke for birdie at the third and then had issues getting the ball close to the pins over the next five holes.

"His [Woods] chances of winning a Major are maybe better than winning a regular event", Harrington said at event for his club sponsors Wilson Golf. "Unfortunately, the part of my ball that was showing was just all white and dimples; I couldn't see any of my markings and so, yeah, couldn't identify it, so back to the tee".

"And it sucked to have to play against him".

"Boy, it was nice to turn the round completely around there", he said, before assessing the gallery.

He's heading for his sixth consecutive made cut, which is good, but this will be the third straight week in which he's snuck onto the Saturday tee sheet.

"We have always looked at each other and said, where is he on the board", he said. Jack Nicklaus is the only three-time victor of the event (1974, 1976 and 1978). It's been either way for our entire careers.

With water all the way down the left-side of the fairway, Tiger pulls an iron to play it safe but finds the water anyway. It is often dubbed golf's "fifth major".

Close friend and contemporary, Jordan Spieth, a three-time major victor at age 24, believes Fowler's breakthrough is near.
