Overview of the 2019 Players Championship

Last year, Webb Simpson finished the first round of the event tied six times for first place, then he tied the course record with a score of less than 63, in the second round, for an impressive advance to five times.

He held on to end the weekend at -18, with four shots ahead of Xander Schauffele, Charl Schwartzel and Jimmy Walker tied for second.

"I was playing well for this event," said Simpson in his recent interview with the National Club Golfer. "I arrived after finishing 21st the previous week in Charlotte. I was confident.

"I did not really think anything special was going to happen in itself, but I had a great first lap and a memorable second lap.

"Sometimes I think that as an athlete, for whatever reason, suddenly, you start performing at a much higher level and it's like coming out of nowhere."

"That's what happened and I took the impulse for the weekend and I stood to win."

The tournament takes place in March for the first time since 2006, while Simpson was still playing for Wake Forest University. For 12 years, it was played in May, about a month after the Masters.

"I think the new date will actually make the event even bigger and more special, and I think more attention will be given to it because … it's the first very big tournament in the world. Year, "said Simpson, according to the PGA Tour. website. "I think it's special to know that when the guys come here, they'll know that the best players in the world are going to be here for the first time, maybe all season, competing for the trophy."

In the first round, he will play alongside Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed.

A month ago, Woods had to deal with neck problems that affected his training at the Genesis Open in Los Angeles and the WGC-Mexico Championship in Naucalpan. he tripled eleven times and four times once in both events.

"The putting feels so much better that I feel better," said Woods, according to Golfweek. "That kind of goes together. Just like my golf swing. If my back hurts, then I do not hit the ball very hard and it will not go very far, and I fired a few rounds. "

The 14-time winner said that neck problems are a product of the spinal fusion surgery that he suffered in 2017.

"It's just because my lower back is merged, and so the stress has to go somewhere if I do not move, and so it's very important for me to go forward from here. the operation to stay malleable otherwise the stress will go somewhere else, said Woods, according to Golfweek, "I have to keep my back moving, even if it is repaired.I have to stay in shape, I have to stay on and stay as relaxed as possible as long as I play here.
