The Players Championship Betting

Golf’s unofficial fifth major is THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponta Vedra Beach, Florida. The event has been moved on the calendar from mid-May to mid-March. The event is known for the famous par-3 17th hole which has the “Island Green”. The field for this event is just as good as all of the majors, with all of the world’s top ranked players in the tournament. The winning player receives almost $2 million dollars, the largest share of any tournament purse in golf. The winner also receives a five-year exemption on the PGA Tour and a three year invite to the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open.

Catch all of the action at THE PLAYERS Championship from Thursday, March 12 through Sunday, March 15.

The Players Championship at a Glance

Course: TPC Sawgrass, Ponta Vedra Beach, FL

Par: 72

Course Lengths: 7,215 yards

Defending Champion: Rory McIlroy

Tournament Record: -24 (Greg Norman 1994)

It is rare when the course gets the top billing at a tournament instead of the players in the event but that is the case with THE PLAYERS Championship. In reality, it is one hole that gets the spotlight and it is the 17th Island Green. The Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass was designed in 1980 by Pete Dye and has a “stadium” concept where fans can watch a number of holes from bleacher type stands.

The big attraction at TPC Sawgrass is the Island Green on the 17th hole. The hole is just 132 yards but it is nothing but a green with a small bunker in front. It is all or nothing on this hole as it is completely surrounded by water. The best pros in the world hit it into the water and when you count in all of the tourists who play the course, it is estimated that more than 100,000 golf balls are fished out of the water every year. The record for most balls in the water on the 17th hole in THE PLAYERS Championship was set in 2018 when 53 balls splashed down.
