World number three Rory McIlroy endured a disastrous start to the Players Championship, shooting a four-over 76 in his first round at TPC Sawgrass.
The four-time major champ suffered four bogeys and a double-bogey as well as two birdies on a wild day at golf’s unofficial fifth major.
American Chad Ramey is currently leading thanks to an eight-under 64 on his maiden appearance at the Florida course, ahead of Collin Morikawa on seven under after a brilliant 65. Both went bogey-free in the opening round, with world number 225 Ramey chasing just his second-ever PGA Tour win.
Canada’s Taylor Pendrith currently sits solo third with a five-under 67, after impressing at the same tournament last year.
