Fresh off a win last week in the WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship at TPC Harding Park, it looks like Rory McIlroy has carried that momentum into this week's Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass early on.

What a smooth approach that was. At the time of this post, McIlroy was 3 under though eight holes after a par at the island-green, par-3 17th.
