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.
The 2017 golf scene was an exciting one for all, however it was missing something. Tiger Woods was absent from the game for much of last year, only participating in two golf tournaments in January and February. He sat the rest of the year out after suffering from his ongoing back problems from a surgery in 2015. The question a lot of golf fans are asking is, what tournaments will Tiger Woods play in this year?
Did you know 11 cameras are specifically positioned to focus on the famed, 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass during THE PLAYERS Championship? It is the shortest yet most dramatic hole throughout the entire course. Sitting at just 132 yards from tee to green with a 78 ft green, your ball can either land in the small bunker, on the green or in the water, preferably not the latter.
