McGirt and Hughes lead Players Championship as Garcia aces 17th

He is playing in his 11th Players Championship.

Speaking about a round containing two birdies and one bogey, the four-time major victor said: "Today it seemed like the golf course should be gettable but no-one really posted any low numbers". "You can stay present, and that's the main thing".

"What I learned is that even if the hole is short, even being close to the green doesn't mean you have a better chance of birdie".

Earlier in the week Paul McGinley had given a very blunt assessment of McIlroy's prospects with his new equipment when he said that the four-time Major victor "isn't very close at all" to reaching the peak of his powers again, saying that he will need time to bed in the new equipment. They were at even par and not too bothered. "That's a pretty big margin, but you get off to a good round tomorrow and you just never know what happens, especially at a place like this, " he said.

McIlroy insisted his back felt a little better as he lifted himself into a tie for 20th, making good birdies at the 16th and 17th before giving one back after taking three putts to get down from over 50 feet at the last. "When you start hitting putts where you're aiming at the right speed, you're going to get a few to go in". Garcia made bogey at No. 18 as the leaders were teeing off on No. 1, and he set a number for them to shoot at as he's 6 under through 54 holes. His best finish came in 2013 with a finish in 33rd.

"Every morning before I play, I work on it". I thought it was fairly sharp.

Stanley, in search of his second career PGA Tour victory, has birdied the par-3 17th hole each of the first three rounds. The 66s were the lowest rounds of the tournament thus far. That's kind of been my mindset all week.

Rahm said he learned how to play Pete Dye courses at the Karsten Course at Arizona State University where he played college golf. "I feel like we have a fairly good game plan for this golf course, so just stick to that and be really patient". Singh took a double bogey on his fourth hole, a triple bogey on the par-3 eighth by hitting a tee shot into a palmetto bush, and he finished his bad day with two balls into the water on the 17th for a triple bogey. Four other golfers, including Louis Oothuizen, Si Woo Kim, Emiliano Grillo and Ian Poulter, are all in front of Garcia.

"I've already limited the schedule down a lot". "It was nice to see it bounce and kind of spin back into the hole, maybe because I needed it after the start I had". Brandt Snedeker and Thomas Pieters are the only players from the top 50 in the world rankings who are not playing. Since 1982, only once has the top-10 featured all Americans.

For Shane Lowry it was a particularly disappointing day as he fired a 76 to finish six over and miss the cut - his first since the Masters - largely thanks to two double bogeys in his round.

Garcia became the eighth player with a hole-in-one on the flat island green in the PGA Tour tournament's history, while he is the first player to win a Green Jacket and make an ace at a Tour event in the same year since Tiger Woods in 1997.

"It was very windy - not very consistent with the wind either", Garcia told Sky Sports after a round containing six birdies, three bogeys and an eagle on the 16th.
