This week sees The Players championship in its new date on the calendar, The Players is always a great event and Pete Dye’s Stadium course is a fitting venue that doesn’t disappoint. Every year this course throws up drama and none more so than the 17th, plenty has been said about this hole, but there is a true replica at Eagles Eye golf club in Michigan that you can play if you can’t make it to Sawgrass.
The Players now offers the highest prize fund in golf at a staggering $10.5 million with the winner taking a $1.8 million cut of that. The tournament used to be a warm up to the Masters and played in March, but with the move to May as a lead up to the US Open, the course now plays very differently and is much dryer, harder and faster.
In 2006 the course implemented massive changes, they tore up the old course and then brought in 26,600 tons of sand, 2.6 million square feet of Bermuda grass, 116,600 feet of pipe for irrigation, 19 acres of sod for landscaping, 200 new trees made up of oaks, pines and palms, new natural waste areas, lower-level bunkers, greenside chipping areas and water hazards. From a spectators point of view it makes great viewing, the changes are seen as a positive move by both the players and the tour.

My tips to Win:
As most of you know I dont normally tip a play after they have just won an event, there are not too many players that win back-to-back events, but I feel Francesco Molinari 25/1 with UniBet has what it takes to do that this week. Francesco has a love/hate relationship at TPC Sawgrass making the Top 10 the first time he teed it up here and then proceeded to miss the next three cuts, then followed that up with another three Top 10s but I feel he will be in the thick of it again this week.
Who can forget Rickie Fowler 25/1 with Ladbrokes playing the 17th hole in the 2015 play-off birdieing the hole twice on his way to winning the title. Rickie is another player that seems to have a love/hate affair with Sawgrass having also had a runner-up finish, but he also has five missed cuts here. Fowler is in great form at the moment with a win, a runner-up and another Top 5 and has only been outside the Top 16 three times from his seven starts.
Not many people tee it up at The Players for the first time and take the runners-up spot but that is what Xander Schauffele 28/1 with 888Sport done last year. His form this year is showing similar form and comes into this week with two wins already from the wraparound season and he has only been outside the Top 25 once in his eight starts.
After a horrendous year behind him Sergio Garcia 33/1 with Ladbrokes did finish the backend of 2018 well and has taken that form into 2019. Sergio has two Top 10s from his last two starts on the PGA Tour and a Top 5 on the European Tour. Garcia has a win, two runners-up finishes and two other Top 5s here and in his current form I think these are good odds.
Another past champion is Matt Kuchar 60/1 with BetFred who also has six other Top 20 finishes at TPC Sawgrass. Matt comes into this week with two wins already on the wraparound season and also has three other Top 25s which includes a Top 5.
When local boy Billy Horschel 90/1 with UniBet first came on tour I tipped him here a couple of times as it is a course he knows very well, but unfortunately the expectations from local support seem to be a weight on his shoulders and more of a hindrance than a help. Billy has shown some great form this year and has five Top 25 finishes from his ten starts and I think this may well be the year that he shows his true self over the TPC Sawgrass track.
