Since its inception in 1974, The Players has provided some of the most epic moments in sports, including legendary Jack Nicklaus' win over J.C. Snead. Reigning Players champion Tiger Woods will be back this May to defend his two-time title, but he'll face the toughest opposition fathomable: Henrik Stenson, Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose, Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy, Zach Johnson and Sergio Garcia will all vie for the illustrious crown.
Last year, The Players Championship celebrated its 40th anniversary and over 30 years at TPC Sawgrass, a course designed by distinguished architect Pete Dye. The iconic "stadium course" is unique in that it was specifically created with the views of the crowd in mind, with mounds and stands for fans littered across the green. TPC Sawgrass also features arguably the most beautiful and intriguing hole on the PGA Tour: the famous No. 17 "island" hole claims over 40 balls in competition, and is a marvel you have to see to believe!
