Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy, who began the year at No. 1, nearly took it back at last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he finished T2. All three stars are grouped together for the first two rounds this week.

The Players is the fourth designated event in five weeks, but this one has an even bigger purse of $25 million, with $4.5 million going to the winner.
