Tiger Woods, Tommy Fleetwood take part in 'Drop it In' game

Tiger Woods
and Tommy Fleetwood were among several of golf's biggest stars to take part in Jimmy Fallon
's hilarious 'Drop It In' game during the Players Championship on Friday.
Fallon asked golf's elite to drop in a variety of weird and quirky phrases into their many media interviews at the tournament and deliver them as casually as possible.
And the players certainly lived up to the task; England's Fleetwood responded to a question about the secrets of his great shots on course that 'even a catfish is right twice a day' while former world No 1 Woods said that hole 17 was 'pretty cool' because  'Tony Danza was in the stands-a'.
Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari were among those who took part.
McIlroy, who is tied for the lead at -12 with Fleetwood, responded to a question about his diet by highlighting 'all you can eat breadsticks' that he needed to watch out for.
Koepka and Thomas both managed to squeeze in 'swing it and ding it' into a press conference while Italian golfer Francesco Molinari was teed up for a stereotype by dropping in 'pizza pizza' into his press briefing. 
Other highlights from the clip included Adam Scott revealing he hadn't done any scouting trips to Augusta because he and his wife went to a Reba McEintre Concert and Webb Simpson describing how he would 'smack it, attack it, swing it like a racket'.
'Drop it In', a segment in The Tonight Show on NBC in the United States,  is reminiscent of the England squad at France '98 when the squad held a wager to see who could drop the most song titles into media interviews without the press clocking on.
They were eventually rumbled by broadcaster Ray Stubbs after Glenn Hoddle attempted to shoehorn the Black Lace song Agadoo into an interview.     
This year's Players Championship was moved to March from its normal May slot this year and it has appeared to favour British hopes.
Both Fleetwood and McIlroy have started exceptionally well, with Fleetwood carding an excellent 65 on Thursday and McIlroy matching that on Friday to tie the lead.  
Ian Poulter is three shots back on nine-under along with Mexico's Abraham Ancer, Brian Harman and Jim Furyk, who posted a mightily impressive 64 on day two.
