The Players

Thursday's Birdies and Bogeys

Who were the first round winners and losers at TPC Sawgrass? It's time to take a closer look with another edition of birdies and bogeys.

May 8, 2014
The Players Championship: Adam Scott

Bogey: Adam Scott

OK, try explaining this one. On a day when nearly half of the 144-man field broke par, the No. 2-ranked Scott only beat four other players with his 77. Scott is one of four players with a chance to take the top spot in the Official World Golf Ranking this week, but he's going to have to get really hot to get the needed T-16. In a weird twist, Scott would have ensured being No. 1 if he had stayed home this week. Another round like this on Friday and he might wish he had. -- Alex Myers
