McIlroy shares fifth with Americans Vaughn Taylor and Ryan Moore, who bagged a stunning hole-in-one at the famous par-3 17th when he slam-dunked his tee shot into the hole.

On Monday at TPC Sawgrass, Woods registered for the tournament and then worked on all facets of his game, spending nearly three hours chipping, putting and hitting all his clubs on the driving range, seemingly with no restrictions.

Tiger Woods, the only golfer to win the Players in March and May, was challenging for the title once again previous year but put his tee shot into the water in the final round to end his bid. If you sign up to a service by clicking one of the links, we may earn a referral fee.

He led by one stroke from South Korean An Byeong-hun and American Brian Harman, and by two from Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy.

Tiger Woods was among the later starters, with the former World No.1 finishing his round strongly to card a three-under-par 69. He had only one par on the back nine. England's Tommy Fleetwood and Keegan Bradley of the United States share the lead on 65s in the PGA TOUR's flagship event.

"This is one of the few holes that I can think of that has no bail-out, that has no margin of error, that has no area for recovery", he said in 2007. 'I feel good. I needed last week off.

He came close a year ago at the U.S. Open, where he finished a stroke behind champion Brooks Koepka after a closing 63. However, I think I've nearly secured my card for next season, so it releases some stress a little bit and this will allow me to play my own game. "It's clearly the next step for me to win over here but winning's not easy and I've just got to keep plodding away", Fleetwood said.

Most of the big names started smoothly but world number two Justin Rose was a notable exception. For those not up to speed on golf terminology, that's three-under par on a hole.
