England’s Tommy Fleetwood and America’s Tom Hoge shot 6-under 66s to finish tied in first place in The Players Championship.

“It’s a great first day,” said Fleetwood. “I’m chuffed to be in on that score. I felt like I drove the ball well aside from a couple, and I felt like I chipped and putted great. For sure, like that was the most I could have got out of the round. So days like that are very, very pleasing.

“I think there’s things that I can do better. So I’ll try to do that over the next few days. Again, I’m not going to complain about the day or anything. I’ll just move on and be happy with a 66.”

Fleetwood’s form hasn’t been the best in recent times, his last title came two years ago and he barely qualified for The Players with the top-50 in the world being selected.

“I haven’t played well. I think there’s been certain things in my swing, if you like, that I haven’t quite understood, and I would say feelings and shots that I have seen haven’t quite matched up with what I’ve always felt and thought like. So then your confidence takes a hit because you’re not quite comfortable out on the golf course.”

“I would say that, if you’re not playing very well, especially out here, the standard is so, so high and it keeps getting higher, when you’re off the pace and you’re lacking confidence, the game becomes very, very difficult.

“I haven’t sort of played terrible. My results haven’t been terrible, but I’ve lacked obviously very good results. And then I think especially from a World Ranking standpoint, that makes it very, very difficult. So I’ve just sort of been gradually declining.

“So, yeah, it’s been difficult. I just haven’t played like I can or how I expect to play. But you know, things change. Let’s see.”

The tournament was hit with heavy rain overnight and was further affected by storms in the area causing delays. Many didn’t get to finish their rounds before play was suspended for the day and twelve players never got started.

Americans Kramer Hickok and Keith Mitchell are tied in third place at 5-under alongside Chilean Joaquín Niemann and Indian Anirban Lahiri.
