Walker hasn't fared well at this tournament over the course of his career but he did finish 21 here previous year so there is a chance he will build on that result this week. Though the 31-year-old still is a relative newcomer to the tour, those results make Kizzire a rather accomplished golfer. Garcia was also a runner-up in the Honda Classic in 2016, losing to Adam Scott by one stroke. Alas, approach shot flies 171 yards and lands in left greenside bunker.

Masters champ Sergio Garcia (18/1), who won the Singapore Open in January, is definitely worth keeping an eye on this week at the PGA National.

"I'm fused, but I'm still learning what that feels like under the gun". Aside from the handsome prize money available, the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Rankings will automatically qualify for the WGC-Mexico Championship next week, where plenty more riches are up for grabs. Nicklaus is the only player to win the tournament in consecutive tries, having accomplished the feat in 1977 and 1978. It's like a first date kind of thing.

"It's tiring", McIlroy said after Friday's second round with Woods and Justin Thomas. I still really like Alex Noren, mostly because he came so close to delivering a huge payout earlier this year and an unknown quantity on the rise is always fun.

However, decisions taken by Sharif will be nullified, including tickets issued by him for the Senate elections. Justice (r) Shaiq Usmani said the verdict has created many legal tribulations for the ruling party.

Said Snedeker: "I expect to see this as his baseline, and it'll only get better from here".

The Indian shot middle rounds of 69-67 at Riviera to lie just outside the top 10 with a round to play before settling for T26.

Rather than heading to the drop zone and having an easier shot into the green, Snedeker elected for the braver option by sticking on his waterproof pants and wading in to the hazard.

QUOTES: Fowler is looking to become the fifth player to defend this title and he is more than happy to be back, and said: "I" t's a course where there's a lot of trouble that's in play, it wears you out mentally and physically.

Two of three of Ireland's tries against Italy were from turnover situations and an interception. Our discipline has been excellent in the first two games.

Organizers also suggest you make a plan for how you want to watch the tournament, whether it is "parade" style, staying in one place and watching the field go by, or "cross-country" style by following a specific player around the course. More recently, he played with Woods on Saturday at Torrey Pines.

Tiger Woods is lurking on the leaders midway through the first round of the US PGA Tour's Honda Classic in Florida. I was super-nervous. The second time I played with him I was like, 'OK, he's just like the rest of us.' He's a welcoming guy, but there is an aura about him that you have to get used to. But I don't think it's imperative. Unfortunately I've made some of my mistakes, ie last week, and unfortunately that's part of it.

"You don't have to win a tournament [before the Masters]", said McIlroy. "It's two shots a tournament he has to give to the field because of all that goes on around him".
