The Players - A Test of Champions
Fred Couples, Greg Norman, and Tiger Woods are among the more notable golfing greats who have won at the TPC Sawgrass over the years. But it's not alway the golfing greats that get the glory. In 2014, it was unlikely underdog Martin Kaymer from Germany who in addition to the winner's title celebrated the end of a 0-for-29 slump!
In 2015, it was underdog Ricky Fowler who answered his critics -- who rated Fowler as "one of the most overrated players in the PGA" -- in a big win at the Players.
