The ‘5th major’ of the year is upon us as the strongest field of the year assembles at TPC Sawgrass for the Players Championship. This event needs no talking up and is one that will probably get you into the hall of fame if you win it. It is steeped in history and offers a spectacle like no other. The field assembled is stronger than any this year. Quite a statistic when you consider the Masters was played a few weeks ago. 24 of the top 25 in the world have gathered to play and that includes Rory Mcilroy. Mcilroy has come back after a 5 week break that saw him get married. He will be as eager as anyone to do well and get himslef back to number one in the world. Standing in his way is the irresistible Dustin Johnson. It almost seems that Johnson can’t put a foot wrong. You can be certain that the world number one will be there or thereabouts this weekend again. TPC Sawgrass measures 7189 yards and plays as a par 72. The 17th hole is renowned the world over and always has a say in who will win the competition. It will be all systems go this week in Florida as the best in the world fight for the Players Championship.
Dustin Johnson (+700 BetOnline.ag)
Week after week Dustin Johnson produces the goods. There can be no one in the game that can dispute his undeniable prowess. Johnson will come into the Players Championship with his confidence at an all time high. He will also strike fear into every opponent as his long hitting and deadly putting will be a stark reminder that you can’t make one mistake. It could well be another DJ march to victory in Florida this weekend.
Rory Mcilroy (+1000 BetOnline.ag)
A five week break was just what the Northern Irishman needed. Settled and relaxed after tying the knot, Mcilroy will be ready to stamp his authority on world golf again. This week he changed his clubs to Taylormade and that in itself could be a warning sign to the rest of the field. Expect Mcilroy to push all the way as he negotiates TPC Sawgrass.
Henrik Stenson (+2800 BetOnline.ag)
Henrik Stenson is due a big performance. He has been going through quite a lean patch and will look to right the ship this week in Florida with a win. The Open champion has enjoyed a solid preparation at TPC Sawgrass and looks to have his eyes set firmly on winning.
