All About the Players Championship

A major highlight of the PGA Tour, the Players Championship is one of the richest tournaments of the year with the strongest and deepest field -— featuring 50 of the the world's top golfers competing for the $2 million 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.

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 whose critics rated him "one of the most overrated players in the PGA" -- and won big at the Players that year.

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


Only three-time champ, Jack Nicklaus.
