Fellow Australian Cameron Smith also has a lacklustre history at the Players despite the Ponte Vedra Beach resident using Sawgrass as his home base to practise and play.

"If you ask any player if they'd rather win a Players Championship or a major, everyone is going to say a major".

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

"The wind picked up and there were some tough holes there", he said.

"(When) you roll out 50 new changes there are going to be some things that work well and some that create debate.

The tenacious Indian holed a seven-footer for his opening birdie on the par-5 second hole before dropping his lone bogey on the eighth.

This year is the earliest The Players has been held since 2007 after the PGA Tour rearranged its schedule for 2019. It really doesn't matter if you hit the water or the green at that point, it's just an incredibly feeling playing a hole where some of the legends have hit incredible shots that live in the memories of the game forever. "I was waiting to try and find the ball on the green and I didn't see it, after I kind of heard it hit the pin".

"The sense of achievement winning the Players, to beat such a strong field on a very demanding course, is an absolute highlight of my career".

World number 13 Fleetwood has won four times on the European Tour, but is still seeking his breakthrough on the PGA Tour.

"Expectation's a tricky thing".

Bradley matched the score with an eagle, six birdies and single a bogey in the afternoon.

"It's got one of the best fields of all the tournaments and, yeah, I think all the players look at it as a major". He missed a scheduled tournament for the first time since returning past year from spinal fusion surgery, and said it was more to make sure a growing problem that started last month in Los Angeles did not get worse. "I was really struggling with my swing for a lot of years and it was hard to come here and play well".

He was in a greenside bunker in two shots, but took two attempts to get out of the sand, and three more to hole out.

It is one of the most famous holes in golf because of an "island green" (it is actually a peninsula) that is surrounded by unforgiving water. During his practice round on Tuesday, he hit a 3-wood bullet off the tee, just like always.
