It’s Players Championship week and after round one, Martin Kaymer has taken a big step to ending his winless streak on the PGA Tour.

The German, who hasn't won on US soil since the 2010 PGA Championship, equalled the course record 63 at TPC Sawgrass, to take a two stroke lead over Russell Henley.

"I've been in the zone before, if you want to call it zone, and didn't feel like it, it just felt really comfortable. I just played golf. That's, fortunately, I hit a lot of quality shots and could finish it off, but I just like playing golf right now, it's nice. I don't need to think that much about my swing and it's just letting things happen right now."

And it’s looking likely that Adam Scott will have to wait even longer if he’s to dislodge Tiger Woods as the world’s number one golfer.

The Australian, who has previously won the event in 2004, struggled with a first round five-over-par 77 to leave him in a tie for 133rd.

Scott needs at least a 16th place finish to reach the summit of world golf.

Whilst fog wreaked havoc at the European Tour’s Madeira Islands Open, the women took centre stage on the LET for the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open.

The now 18 year old Charley Hull impressed with a round of three under. She’s tied sixth, three off leader Heather Macrae.

The Scot’s round of 67 leaves her a stroke clear of Gwladys Nocera and Malene Jorgensen.
