The 2023 Players Championship is the fourth designated event on the PGA Tour in five weeks. Another loaded field is set to take on TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, beginning Thursday.
Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy, the top three players in the Official World Golf Ranking, are playing together for the first two rounds. The star-studded group will tee off at 7:56 a.m. ET Thursday.
Despite all the star power, there are several names further down the odds list that deserve some consideration.
And if you don’t believe a sleeper could contend come Sunday, here are a few names that finished inside the top five over the last two years: Lee Westwood, Brian Harman, Anirban Lahiri, Kevin Kisner and Keegan Bradley.
In fact, let’s start with Bradley on this list of sleeper picks for the 2023 Players Championship.
