Players ChampionshipA major highlight of the PGA Tour, the Players Championship is the richest tournament of the year with the strongest and deepest field -— featuring 50 of the the world's top golfers competing for the $1 million-plus prize at Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Golf fans know the course best for its infamous 137-yard 17th hole - better known as the "Island Green" - which historically raises the blood pressure of even the coolest players.

Tickets for the Players Championship traditionally go on sale in November, including travel packages featuring tours of downtown Jacksonville, historic St. Augustine, and the nearby World Golf Hall of Fame.

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.

Who will take the Player's trophy this year? Stay tuned...
