Jason Day opened with a 63 during the 2016 Players Championship and never looked back for the first wire-to-wire win in 33 years at TPC Sawgrass.
Day, who won the Players by four shots a year ago, lamented a bad break at the par-three 13th hole that resulted in a double-bogey five, cruelling his fight-back in the third round.

"It doesn't matter whether you're leading (or not) on the first day". And, of course, we've seen the heartbreak that players such as Sean O'Hair and Len Mattiace have suffered on the island green. He has missed the cut twice and tied for 43rd twice in four starts, and has shot everything from 65 in the second round previous year to 81 in the second round in 2014. They were only five behind when they finished, and they could sense that because of steamy weather and swaying pines that nobody was going to get too far away from him. He said the winds were gusting to 20 miles per hour at times, which did challenge him and his play.
