The Players Championship 2013: Tee times, TV schedule for Friday

Richard Heathcote

The top two players in the world finished near the top of the leaderboard after Round 1 at The Players Championship. With the competition heating up, don't miss any of the action on Friday. Here's the tee sheet for the second round.

Could fans have asked for a better start to The Players Championship? Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy finished in the top five Thursday, sitting just a stroke apart from each other and both setting personal bests for their opening round at TPC Sawgrass. Friday is sure to be another day full of leaderboard moves in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Despite the strong starts from the top two players in the world, they were both at least three shots behind leader Roberto Castro. Castro shot a 9-under 63 in his TPC debut, matching the tournament course record held by Hall of Famers Fred Couples and Greg Norman,. Seven birdies and an eagle on the par-5 second hole gave him a three-stroke lead over McIlroy and Zach Johnson heading into Day 2.

Now attempting to extend, but more realistically maintain that lead, he'll have a later start on Friday, teeing off on hole No. 1 at 12:46 p.m. ET with Jimmy Walker and Jason Bohn again. The afternoon wave on Friday have to contend with more difficult scoring conditions, as the win picked up a bit later at TPC Sawgrass. But if Castro stripes his irons and approach shots the same way he did on Thursday, a little increased wind won't matter too much.

Woods appeared as though he would finish tied for second place heading into the final hole, but his first bogey of the day at the difficult No. 18 set him back to 5-under. He is tied for fourth with five other players. Woods will tee off at 8:39 a.m. with reigning-champion Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker.

McIlroy tees off at 1:49 p.m. with Adam Scott and Steve Stricker, the pairing that should be the focus of the afternoon television coverage.

Golf Channel has the broadcast from 1-7 p.m. for the second round.
