Notes


Rory McIlroy won his 15th career PGA TOUR title at THE PLAYERS Championship, his first TOUR win in nearly a year. After starting the final round one shot off the lead, won by one shot over 48-year-old Jim Furyk, marking his eighth come-from-behind victory in a stroke-play event, in his 156th career start at the age of 29 years, 10 months, 14 days.

Rory McIlroy joined Tiger Woods and Henrik Stenson as players to win at least one FedExCup, THE PLAYERS, a major and a World Golf Championships event.

As the 15th international winner of THE PLAYERS, Rory McIlroy became the first player from Northern Ireland to win the event.

TPC Sawgrass marked the third Pete Dye-designed course Rory McIlroy won a PGA TOUR event on, including The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island (2012 PGA Championship) and 2012 BMW Championship (Crooked Stick Golf Club).

In the final round, Jim Furyk birdied Nos. 10-11 and 16 and 18 to close with a 67, good for a solo-second. With a win, he would have surpassed Funk as the oldest champion in tournament history.

After beginning the final round seven strokes back, England's Eddie Pepperell recorded five birdies on his closing nine to finish T3, the best performance among 22 first-time participants in the 2019 field.

Jhonattan Vegas (T3) made tournament history, recording the longest putt made on No. 17 with a 69-foot, 7-inch birdie putt.

THE PLAYERS Championship 2019 marked the first time since 2006 the tournament was played in March. There were 24 players in the 2019 field who competed in March, including winners Tiger Woods (2001, 2013) and Adam Scott (2004).

WEATHER: Thursday: Partly cloudy. High of 76. Wind SE 12-22 mph. Due to darkness, play was suspended at 7:52 p.m. ET with one player (Anirban Lahiri) remaining on the course. The first round was completed at 8:56 a.m. ET Friday. Friday: Partly cloudy. High of 80. Wind S 10-18 mph. Saturday: Mostly cloudy. High of 66. Wind N 10-20 mph. Sunday: Cloudy with intermittent showers. High of 59. Wind N 8-22 mph.
