    Players Championship delayed leaderboard scores on Thursday. The two consecutive rain delays brought a total of 5 hours to disrupt Round 1 of the 2022 Championship games.

    TPC Sawgrass became a point-and-shoot course; far removed from the hard and fast pressures that got the most attention this time all year round.

    The players decided to take advantage as the passer rating dropped to 71 flat; even though half of the pitch has still yet to finish their sessions. The scoreboard is already topped by a pair of 66s.

    After Day 1, Tommy Fleetwood and Tom Hoge are in the same first place at the six-under-par position. Along with four other players at five-under-par.

    After Players Championship delayed leaderboard scores, it’s likely to be just another strange day on Friday.

    Gentlemen like Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, and Collin Morikawa, who are all on the third hole; will probably have to play the whole day to complete their remaining 33 holes before sunset.

    Fleetwood, Hoge, and many others who completed Thursday evening will have very little time to prepare for the next round 2 or will have the entire day off before resuming on Saturday.

    More severe weather is forecast, with severe storms to be all day on Friday and gale force winds on Saturday.

    The objective will be to complete by Sunday evening, but a sloppy first day and a second that doesn’t appear much better could make that difficult.

    How did the T1 players do in the first round of the Championship?

    Fleetwood was fantastic outside the greens and struck the ball well, but he didn’t even make a top 100 in distance control, which will be an issue at TPC Sawgrass if the wind is blowing.

    Hoge, on either extreme, led the team from the tee to the green. With two top 30 finishes in his last two appearances and a triumph at the AT& T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in 2022. He was an excellent potential sleeper selection coming into the week.

    A three-putt on the 17th hole was the only imperfection on his record.

    And while he lacks the ability to compete with the majority of this realm in contention to win; Morikawa is about to go two-under through three holes on Friday.

    Even when there was a delay in the Players Championship delayed leaderboard scores; it is a worry because he still has an opportunity to finish in the top ten or even come into the competition on Sunday.
