2019 Players Championship leaderboard breakdown: Tommy Fleetwood co-leads after dazzling Round 1



Day 1 of the 2019 Players Championship was as entertaining as ever even with the move from May to March. Tommy Fleetwood and Keegan Bradley lead, but the leaderboard is absolutely loaded with big names and great players. Let's take a look at some of those names as we head into the second day of play at TPC Sawgrass.

T1. Tommy Fleetwood, Keegan Bradley (-7): The Englishman finished second in the field from tea to green and putted well enough to notch seven birdies. Here's the kicker, though: through his first nine holes on the easier side of the course, Fleetwood was a pedestrian 1

under. Then he played the front nine of the course in 30 while the field average was over 36. A spectacular close. Bradley was the opposite. Together, they shot the best ball 60.

T3. Ben An, Brian Harman (-6): If you had An for No. 1 in the field in strokes gained from tee to green on Thursday, come on down. This is a pretty duo and would make an astoundingly fun late Saturday afternoon coupling. Two silent assassins.

T5. Rory McIlroy, Vaughn Taylor, Ryan Moore (-5): Same old story for McIlroy this season. Elite ball-striking, average to over-average putting, top of leaderboards. Rinse, repeat Maybe the most notable part of McIlroy's day was a bad break he got on his 18th hole (ninth on the course), where his high hole hit hit a drainage top and caromed beyond the green. He could not get up and down for the birdie. Could have pretty easily been a 66.

T8. Brendan Steele, Rory Sabbatini, J.T. Poston, Kyle Stanley, Kevin Kisner (-4): The race for low Rory is after Round 1. I think Sabbatini also gets bonus points for having the stones to shoot anything under the while wearing a shirt that looks like a Rorschach test.

Several of the T10s are intriguing as well. That number includes former winners Sergio Garcia and Matt Kuchar as well as Dustin Johnson, Ian Poulter, Patrick Reed, Brandt Snedeker, Tony Finau, Jon Rahm and Haotong Li. With Nos. 1 and 2 playing as two of the easiest holes in the course, any of these guys could leapfrog the ones ahead of them early in the day on Friday.

Can not get enough golf?

Thanks for stopping by.
