Can Martin Laird challenge for a win at TPC Sawgrass?

The 2012 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl., is underway on Thursday with the opening round, but former Colorado State Ram golfer Martin Laird is still several hours away from teeing off. He is paired with Stewart Cink and Charles Howell III for an 11:18 a.m. MT tee time at Hole No. 10.

Laird has rebounded recently from a poor performance at the Masters (11-over) and at RBC Heritage (missed cut) with a 6-under finish at Quail Hollow in the Wells Fargo Championship, good for a 26th-place tie. In 2011, Laird finished in a tie for 69th-place (4-over) at TPC Sawgrass. Will he be able to improve on that?

Head over to PGATour.com for a complete listing of pairings and tee times. Tune into the Golf Channel at 11:00 a.m. MT for coverage of Round 1.
