Fleetwood leads but Rory lurks as Players showdown opens

Britain's Tommy Fleetwood fired a seven-under-par 65 to seize a one-stroke lead early in Thursday's opening round of the US PGA Players Championship with Rory McIlroy lurking two adrift. "If I was going to pick a start, that would be it," Fleetwood said. The 28-year-old Englishman owned a one-stroke clubhouse edge over South Korean An Byeong-hun and American Brian Harman with four-time major winner McIlroy of Northern Ireland sitting fourth on 67 with half the field on the course.
