The Players Championship 2017The Players Championship, which celebrated its first edition in 1974 with the victory of the great Jack Nicklaus, has over the year become one of the most prestigious golf tournaments of the year as it gathers the best players in the world.And they do not do it for the $ 10.5 million in prizes,which is comparable to that of any of the four Grand Slams of the year – but because of the venue – TPC at Sawgrass – which is a benchmark in American golf.
As the best players in the world gather here, winning the Players Championship means earning the respect of the sports elite.

It is true that if there was a fifth Major that would be The Players Championship. All of the current world golf stars will be here this year.

Defending champion Jason Day looks forward to winning at Sawgrass and bring some joy to his 2017 season, which for the moment has been disappointing.

Jordan Spieth, who so farhas not had a great season, will try to jumpstart his campaign with a win the Players Championship.
