TPC Sawgrass day 1 recap

May 10, 2018 - 6 guys atop the leader board at -6 after day one here at The Players. I guess you could say it's early bird got the worm on Thursday morning or early bird gets the birdie.

Dustin Johnson one of those names up at the top of the leader board came out and fired a 31 to open up his backside where he actually started the round.

That daunting 18 task he's able to get through there -6 under today for the South Carolina native.

Dustin Johnson said, "just struggled on the greens here. I mean they're tough. I feel like they're tough to read, but today I felt like I did a very good job reading the greens."

As for the marquee pairing today, I heard one reporter say it was like going to the dentist watching them play today. Phil a 79 and Ricky Fowler, +2 74 and Tiger Woods was just able to salvage an even par round today.

They're looking to square things away Friday afternoon.

Tiger Woods said, "no I mean we have to go out there and tear this place apart. We've got to be aggressive and go low. This golf course is playing a little bit on the easier side, and so no what my playing partners are doing, there's too many guys out there playing really well and going low. My responsibility is to go low and shoot something in the red."

NBC's coverage of The Players Championship starts on Saturday
