THE PLAYERS Championship 2019 delivered upon its return to March, setting the stage for what should be an epic next few months of Major championship play.
Let's talk money.
Actually, let's talk about A LOT of money.
Since 1974, THE PLAYERS Championship has proved that you don't need to win a major to be considered one of the best players in the world. For a championship that is less than a half century old, THE PLAYERS has proven to be one of the most prestigious titles in the sport with its combination of playing field, course history at TPC Sawgrass and record-breaking purse.
As we approach THE PLAYERS Championship 2019, the potential field is starting to shape up. Golfers can qualify for golf's unofficial 'fifth major' through a myriad of ways, including wins from even five years ago. We detailed how a golfer can qualify for THE PLAYERS previously, and with the tournament move to March this year, we know most of the names who have earned a bid into the championship.
With a recent move to March, THE PLAYERS Championship has taken back its place as the golf tournament that kicks off an eventful summer of action. Often considered golf's unofficial "fifth major", THE PLAYERS Championship will set the pace of play that we will see at The Masters® 2019, The 2019 Open and beyond.
THE PLAYERS Championship is often considered the unofficial “fifth major” of golf, and will be making it’s triumphant return to March next year! For an event that has only been around for less than five decades, THE PLAYERS Championship is still rich with history and has a fascinating story of its own to tell.
