The first day of the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Florida saw plenty of action with William McGirt and Mackenzie Hughes taking a -5 lead at the event while Kevin Na withdrew from competition after just two holes. "I don't know, it can do anything", Garcia said.
Day trailed by three shots after three bogeys in his final four holes, with Phil Mickelson also two-under.
The former world number one is suing the PGA Tour for "reckless administration and implementation" of its anti-doping program after he was banned for using deer antler spray in 2013. - Under sunny skies with temperatures reaching into the low '90s, The Players Championship got under way Thursday at The Players Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass.
Many of golf's biggest names struggled to gain traction, much less maintain it. "Obviously there's so much water here and there's no real easy recovery from the water". "Chipped it up there pretty close", McGirt said.
"Hopefully, all going well, we get back on".
After bringing her to his home in OH for more tests and eventually surgery to remove a tumor, Day ended up withdrawing from the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship in March - just two weeks before the Masters.
"Yeah, the back's been a little bit on and off", he said to The Golf Channel.
Scott, who won the Players Championship in 2004, is confident of making a move back up the leaderboard with a morning tee time up his sleeve on Friday.

A spokesman said: "As a precaution, NHS Lanarkshire is closing down its non-essential networked IT systems on a temporary basis". Mrs May said: "We are aware that a number of NHS organisations have reported that they have suffered from a ransomware attack".
And the 37-year-old American joins 26-year-old Hughes at the top of the leaderboard after the 2016 RSM Classic victor fired a bogey-free round which included five birdies. Alex Noren (68), Jon Rahm (68) and Lee Westwood (70) did not make bogey either. In four prior tries, he has failed to convert the opening round lead into a victory or top-five.
McIlroy said he took three weeks away from golf after the Masters and around the time of his wedding. "I needed it after the start I had".
"It wasn't flawless golf, but I managed it really well and made a few nice saves when I needed to and made a few nice putts".
"Well, it was just a good solid day all around".
"Being able to climb that mountain is very hard because sitting back and knowing that I've done it before and how much work I actually had to put into it is tough in itself, " Day said. A double bogey on the par-4 6th left the 2015 Players victor three-over par during a three-hole stretch, but he did close with a final-hole birdie. He was five under though 11 holes, and even he was surprised by the fast start in the opening round.
World number one Dustin Johnson shot 71, while Rory McIlroy missed a two-foot tap-in at the 10th hole en route to a 73 in his first start as a married man. Garcia also shot 71, thanks in no small measure to his ace at the 17th.
Scott, who won the 2013 US Masters, hit his tee-shot a little right of the pin before watching it roll back down the slope at the front of the green and into the water.
