Not a bad view for Watson as he started his Tuesday.
Stallings. Wow. twitter.com/webbsimpson1/s…— Webb Simpson (@webbsimpson1) May 7, 2013
A number of good photos from the PGA TOUR Wives Association Golf Classic which was held Tuesday on the Dye's Valley course at TPC Sawgrass. This won't be the only one you see in this feature.
Bradley and Watson rank Nos. 9 and 10 on TOUR respectively in driving distance, averaging about 23 more yards off the tee than McDowell. The ability of TPC Sawgrass to make competitors hit less than driver, though, could level the field a bit for G-Mac.
Perhaps Ruby DeLaet learned something from her husband, who had five top-25 finishes in a six-start stretch earlier this season.
If you miss to the left on No. 18 at TPC Sawgrass ... you're gonna have a bad time.
Very intimidating final holes at TPC Sawgrass. Green at 17th quite big, but I've heard it shrinks when it gets to Thursday...— Gonzalo Fdez-Castaño (@gfcgolf) May 7, 2013
Fernandez-Castano is one of 24 first-time participants at THE PLAYERS this year. With a Thursday start on No. 10, he'll get a chance to visit No. 17 early in his first competitive round at TPC Sawgrass.
Did Kuch rock up to his press conference today in a suit and tie?? He's going all NBA on us! #SweetThreads— Luke Donald (@LukeDonald) May 7, 2013

No. 17 didn't give Huh any trouble in his PLAYERS debut last year. The then-rookie carded three pars and a birdie on the signature hole at TPC Sawgrass en route to a T23 finish.
Pictured from right are the McGirts (William and Sara), Stallings (Scott and Jen), Teaters (Josh and Ashley) and Gaineys (Tommy and Erin) -- one of 18 teams to compete in Tuesday's TOUR Wives Golf Classic.
The excitement is building for the 2013 PLAYERS!
