"If you don't feel too comfortable over the driver, you have some people to stop that golf ball for you before it goes out of bounds", he said.
In the case of next week's event over the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, that will be for Shinnecock Hills, venue for this season's second major in June, though, based on the evidence from 12 months ago at least, the Players Championship doesn't really play a big part in hinting what might lie ahead in that particular tournament.
"The first time you get on some Pete Dye courses they're very unusual and they set you up at wrong angles, and visually they're just a little bit not what you want to see, but you learn to deal with it and play the way he wants you to play".
Lahiri, never one to mince words, has often been very hard on himself.
Day heads to Sawgrass in Florida this week with two wins underneath his belt, similar to he did in 2016.
Of course if a golfer wants a chance at capturing THE PLAYERS title, they will have to stay dry on Sunday.
"I think our relationship has certainly gotten a lot closer with me being a vice captain the last couple teams (2016 Ryder Cup, 2017 Presidents Cup) and sitting there and having very lengthy conversations with him about things, not just the pairings but just about things in general", Wood said. "It's a week where I feel well prepared for", added Lahiri. That's more than the total purse at 18 official events on the European Tour schedule. He almost won the first time he played and didn't even make a bogey until his 59th hole. We've got the other three Major championships.
All three of this year's champions - Kang, Cao and Saxon - are in the field at the Haikou Championship, while other former Tour winners include China's Zhang Huilin, Chao Haimeng and He Zeyu, Australians James Marchesani and Bryden Mac-Pherson, Kim Tae-woo of South Korea and Canada's Justin Shin. It was a big number.
The formula to this course is to drive it accurately, regardless of what club is being hit off the tee, hit as many shots on the green in regulation as possible, get up and down when there isa miss, and attack the Par 5s (Par 5 scoring). You've got to find the fairways, the greens are relatively small, and you can not short-side yourself around here.
"If you shoot a three there, it's a bonus but I'll be aiming for a four". Spieth has four top-10 finishes this year out of 10 tournaments, but has missed the cut twice. I felt it was in my best interests to lay up, but everybody else seemed to be going for the green in two so I thought I should as well.
The 28-year-old Kiradech is on the verge of earning Special Temporary Membership with the PGA TOUR and that will allow him unlimited sponsor exemptions for the remainder of the season and if he finishes inside the top-125 of the FedExCup points standing, he will become the first Thai to earn a PGA TOUR card.
Since then, Lahiri's form has been rather off. Thomas has also made the cut in all nine tournaments he's competed in. The best was tied 26th at the Genesis Open.
