Jason Day Leads Players After Record-Tying 63
ABOVE: John Swantek and Kelly Hawkins take an in-depth look at the field teeing it up at the 2016 PLAYERS Championship.
THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP IS UNDER WAY at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Thus far, the scoring is low, low, low.
Jason Day fired a record-tying 63 in his opening round to take the early lead. Justin Rose and Bill Haas are part of a group that shot 65. Ernie Els is one of several players with a 6-under 66. Phil Mickelson had 70. Jordan Spieth carded an even-par 72, which included a double bogey 7 on his last hole. The first round is still in progress.
Of course, scoring conditions will toughen. There's a long way to go.
