PGA The Players Championship Odds 5/7/18 Who Do Oddsmakers Favor?

Fowler finished tied-60th at the 2017 Players Championship

Former world number ones Rory McIlroy and Jason Day have different comfort levels entering the Players Championship - one knowing what it takes to win at TPC Sawgrass, and the other still seeking to solve the puzzle of the famous course.

Jason Day. He won the Wells Fargo Championship last week, and the last PLAYERS victor to have won the week before was Tiger Woods in 2001.

Spain's Rafa Cabrera Bello lines up to putt on the 17th green during the final round of The Players Championship at the Stadium course at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, the United States on May 14, 2017.

Anthony Kirwin, a golf course manager at a club outside of London, is in town with about a dozen other superintendents through an internship program with John Deere. "I'm ready to kind of get back on that first-year path but doing it the right way".

"For Tiger, I've always looked up to him as a role model on the golf course, " Day said.

Matt Kuchar - Matt Kuchar has played a lot of golf this season, and while he hasn't exactly had that breakthrough finish, he's consistently making the cut and finishing in the top-30 or so.

Woods is around a 33/1 betting outsider at the TPC Sawgrass, a course where he twice has won the PGA Tour's flagship event - in 2001 and again in 2013.

"But I've had a three-week stretch here, and I feel the swing's getting a little bit loose, so we just tried to even out the path a little bit. I played good at Augusta, I played good at Hilton Head", Johnson said. "So I actually put a lot of it down to that". "I think it is about time to step up and give myself a chance of victory".

Spieth made his Travelers debut as the fourth player in tournament history to win the Connecticut PGA Tour stop in his first appearance.

The so-called "fifth major" offers Johnson and its typically strong field to get a taste of Grand Slam-like atmosphere between the Masters and the U.S. Open, which will be hosted this June by Shinnecock Hills Golf Club on Long Island in NY. For people who are newer to the golf scene, THE PLAYERS is not actually a major, there are only four majors in golf, however, everything about the tournament replicates what a major golf tournament is. The harder the better. I mean, it is one of the toughest tests in golf with potentially the best field in golf.

Johnson, like numerous other young stars occupying the PGA Tour right now, never had to face Tiger Woods during his most dominant days.

Such has been its growing stature since its inauguration in 1974, commentators and golfers have labelled it as the unofficial "fifth major" in the men's game.

And there could not be a better setting than the PLAYERS.
