TPC SawgrassPonte Vedra Beach, Fla.

On THE PLAYERS Championship and the renovated TPC SawgrassBrandel Chamblee –“Compelling. That is the right word for this golf course. The changes are sort of superficial, but they are aggressive-friendly changes. They encourage more aggressive play, and we might be in store for an epic PLAYERS Championship this year.”David Duval –“On this golf course, you have to get around by being aggressive, but that means sometimes backing down – being aggressive with that 2-iron off the tee vs. driver.”Duval – “You don’t like being told how you are going to play golf, but around here, you are dictated by that. You have to back off at times. It is a necessity.”Duval –“It takes conviction, performance and guts to play this golf course.”

On Dustin JohnsonChamblee –“In general, he has been far too aggressive without the short game to back it up in the past here. It is so hard to draw conclusions about Dustin Johnson in the past to now, because he is such a vastly different player.”Frank Nobilo –“If Dustin Johnson uses the strength in his bag and proceeds to go with shorter clubs, then he plays his golf and nobody might catch him.”Nobilo –“To use tennis as an analogy. Roger Federer on clay and Rafael Nadal being the king of clay – this course Dustin Johnson’s clay.”

On Sergio GarciaDuval –“He is as close as anybody in figuring out this golf course. He has realized to back down. You have to back down here at this golf course a little bit.”

On Rickie FowlerDuval –“He has the guts to get around this golf course. He doesn’t have the fear. He stands up, hits the shots and takes with the course gives him.”

On Adam HadwinNobilo –“He is having an outstanding year. This guy is legit, and not enough people are talking about him.”

On Kevin KisnerDuval –“When you have the courage to play this golf course, and you’ve done it – it took exceptional play in 2015 by Fowler to defeat Kisner. Don’t sleep on him. He’s a good one this week.”

On Francesco MolinariChamblee –“If he can find a little form around the greens he might be able to get it done here this week.”
