Anirban Lahiri eyes redemption at Players Championship

Another formidable challenge awaits the big guns | Bangkok Post: news

Anirban Lahiri is out to slay his demons at TPC Sawgrass and become third time lucky at the Platers Championship starting in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, on Thursday. Much of the time he normally would spend preparing for the upcoming season was instead spent battling fatigue and weight loss.

"From the beginning of the year, the idea is peak at the Masters", said Spieth, who shot a final-round 64 at Augusta and briefly was tied for the lead.

The 30-year-old is keen on contending in the PGA Tour's flagship tournament after missing the cut here twice, including last year where he needed all of 10 shots on the par-4 18th hole after finding the water three times.

However after that the stress of staying on the prime, coupled with mom Dening's most cancers analysis in early 2017, his spouse Ellie's miscarriage and again points, precipitated Day's decline. I didn't really do that.

Asked to put his finger on the reason behind such unusual statistics, the three-time major victor told a pre-tournament press conference: "I love this place, I love the golf course but if you're not on it's (about) a lot of small areas".

That starts with doing something at TPC Sawgrass that he hasn't done since 2014: make the cut.

Ailing Donovan Mitchell watches Jazz's elimination from bench
The longtime vet has never been to the conference finals, but he made sure that wasn't going to be the case any longer. I talk to him ( Donovan Mitchell ) all the time, and I ain't talk to him one time during this playoff series.

Spieth is fourth in the world rankings right now.

The latter instance came at the 16th and 17th holes, the first two holes of what is referred to at Quail Hollow as the "Green Mile, " the tough finishing stretch that also includes the 18th.

One huge surprise the model is calling for at the 2018 Players Championship: Tiger Woods, a two-time champion, makes a strong run but falls short of winning the title.

He has somehow managed to erase memories of last year's PLAYERS, but added, "I don't even remember if it was an eight, 10 or a 12".

"I think the week after the U.S. Open this year, maybe for the 2018 Travelers", Spieth responded with a smile. "I haven't approached it like I approach the major championship-caliber golf and this golf course and this tournament are major championship-caliber and therefore I kind of need to go in with a different game plan and mindset and stick to it when I'm on the golf course".
