Paul Casey withdraws from Players Championship with injury

When Pete Dye developed the course that became the home of the PGA TOUR, he created a monster that players still struggle with some 35 years later.

"It was probably a fair reflection of how I played". "I knew this was going to be an issue".

If Simpson replicates his form from Friday at the weekend, there will be no stopping him.

"My expectations are the same for every tournament", said Johnson. Coming into here it's no different.

"I learned to play the golf course a little bit better and reined myself in on some tee shots, and that's what's brought me a little bit of success here".

Johnson shot a six under 66 at TPC Sawgrass to join Webb Simpson, Chesson Hadley, Alex Noren, Matt Kuchar and Patrick Cantlay in setting the pace.

There aren't many things more exciting in golf than when Tiger Woods gets things going.

Count me among those who aren't anxious at all about this latest blip on the radar.

Casey, from England, was replaced in the field by American Keith Mitchell. "It's definitely helped. Because I'm a feel putter, anyway, and so the way you're doing it really is you're just feeling". Two holes later, he had 8 feet for birdie at the simple par-5 16th but lipped out the opportunity. You might be wondering, "Where's he been since last May?"

From the time he started playing golf, former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel never had a coach other than his father.

"It gives you motivation", McIlroy said of the final round at Augusta National.

The hole already offers players plenty to think about, with water surrounding the island green, but how would the players cope when face when taking on the hole with the opposite hand?

The 27-year-old, who has missed the weekend cut at eight of 12 tournaments in 2018 and withdrawn from another, posted five birdies and one bogey in a steady round. So, I'm sticking with the strategy of playing guys who have work to do to get themselves into contention on Sunday. "He attacks the golf course, he's very powerful off the tee". He hit 15 of 18 greens in regulation despite hitting only seven of 14 fairways.

None of the feature group of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler were able to break par.

A year ago, Garcia had the crowd roaring with delight on day one with a hole-in-one at 17. His group with Woods and Mickelson combined to shoot 9 over.

Shane Lowry battled to a second round 68 in The Players Championship.

Day carded a bogey-free 67 to climb to eight under to be the leading Australian, seven shots off the pace. Through Friday at Sawgrass, he had an eagle and just four birdies.

As it turns out, Jordan Spieth is no exception.

CBS Sports was with you the entire way Thursday with analysis, highlights and more from The Players. Lefty shot a 7-over 79 and looked as if he was headed to an audition for a bonus season of The Office following his first round.
