Players Championship 2024 PGA Tour picks to win, odds, course history

2024 Players Championship

The flagship event on the PGA Tour’s schedule has arrived, as the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass is once again primed to host the best field in golf for the Players Championship.

Defending champion and world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler is hoping to build off last week’s win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, but he’ll have to fight off a loaded field that includes Rory McIlroy, Viktor Hovland, Xander Schauffele, Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth, among others.

However, the Tour could be in serious trouble if Scheffler’s improved putting — thanks to a new mallet — continues in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
