Wentworth 18th green

Jordan Spieth insists he is not feeling the pressure of trying to complete the career grand slam because he has no "burning desire" to become the youngest to achieve the feat. Just seven years later, in 2009, it held another U.S. Open and has since host the PGA Tour's Barclays in 2011 and 2016. The greens, changed in 2014, are now Bermuda Grass and while this should not change things much, the rough being changed to Bermuda will.

Koepka had birdie putts inside 15 feet on his opening six holes and converted only one of them.

Snead once said in a television interview that had he shot 69 in the final round in each of the 31 U.S. Opens he played, he'd have won nine of them. It will be more hard for players missing fairways off of the tee and missing greens to get their ball out of the Bermuda cleanly versus the less penal Rye Grass they are used to in the Spring.

It showed on the leaderboard. The 24-year-old can take a massive step toward reclaiming his status as the PGA Tour's top competitor - and stake his claim as the game's top young player since Tiger Woods - with 72 stellar holes in North Carolina. That was plenty of time to think about it, to answer to it. It was a big advantage to be in the fairway, and Olesen had only a 7-iron into 18th green.

The perception is that the previous March date left THE PLAYERS vulnerable to increased precipitation.

"It's going to kind of space everything out a little bit more instead of it all being kind of crammed together", said top-ranked Dustin Johnson.

"The positive is they haven't messed the course up by changing it, which (sometimes) happens", the 2013 Masters champion told Reuters ahead of Thursday's first round.

"I think it's partly to do with the upturn in form that I've had over the last few weeks and then my history on this golf course", he said. It was very, very fast.

Former world number one in pro-golfing, Adam Scott, thinks the Quail Hollow renovation is the equivalent of a person who undergoes a facelift just for the sake of it, not because it is needed.

Both of these factors have seen McIlroy's odds drop right down inside the 7/1 mark and he can't be overlooked this week.

"You do think whatever happens, I've already won the Masters, and it's awesome", added Garcia, who will play the first two rounds alongside fellow 2017 major winners Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth. He played in the same group as Day, who was headed for another poor start until he made eagle on the par-5 seventh, followed with a birdie and wound up at 70. "TPC Sawgrass has always been a great test, but the move back to March is only going to test one of the best fields in golf even more and showcase what a great event it is". "That's just a major".

"The problem here is that you very rarely can get a ball where you want to", he said.
