TPC notebook: Tiger Woods again fashionable pick

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Amid lingering fallout from his bad Masters drop and following a rare stroll down the red carpet earlier this week, Tiger Woods can finally focus on golf again. And even though his record in The Players Championship isn’t sparkling, he’ll be wearing the favorite’s tag when play starts at TPC Sawgrass Thursday.

Woods has one win in 15 Players appearances, back in 2001, when he was at his dominant best. Since then, he’s been near the lead just once (eighth in 2009), withdrew in 2010 and 2011, and tied for 40th last year.
