Hello and welcome to day two from Sawgrass… and we have a Brit at the top of the leaderboard.
Rory McIlroy believes it is just a “matter of time” before Tommy Fleetwood wins his maiden PGA Tour title after his Ryder Cup team-mate claimed a share of the lead on day one of The Players Championship.
And on yesterday’s showing, it’s hard to argue.
Fleetwood birdied six of his last nine holes in an inward half of 30, just one shot outside the tournament record, to set an imposing clubhouse target of seven under par which was matched only by former US PGA champion Keegan Bradley.
Korea’s Ben An and American Brian Harman are a shot off the lead on six under, with McIlroy, Vaughn Taylor and Ryan Moore a stroke further back, Moore’s 67 including a spectacular hole-in-one on the iconic par-three 17th.
