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.
But THE PLAYERS Championship isn't just about the actual tournament play, it's about the access. And if you're looking for the best way to get the ultimate access at this year's championship, we have a secret — it's not during the tournament. You heard that right. Attending the practice rounds (Tuesday and Wednesday) is the best way to maximize your experience, and get closer to the sport than ever, at TPC Sawgrass.
Come see our reasons why:
Less People, More Access
THE PLAYERS Championship has been growing in attendance steadily year-by-year for almost a decade. The championship has exploded to host almost 200,000 attendees over its four tournament days, ranging anywhere from 30,000 to 50,000 people at the course per day. With attendance records being set constantly and the course staying the same, it's needless to say that shuffling through the crowds on tournament days is getting harder and harder.
But, thankfully, you don't have to deal with that on practice round days.
But these crowds don't just apply to walking the course — it affects traffic as well! Getting to and from the course on Tuesday and Wednesday will be a easier compared to the bumper-to-bumper scuffle that you may have to deal with during the weekend.
This may be one of those "duh" moments, but it's still pretty important that you can see your favorite golfers and experience TPC Sawgrass. Official Packages for THE PLAYERS Club access on Tuesday and Wednesday start at just $699.00.
That's the cheapest price you'll find anywhere to get access to THE PLAYERS Club, the premier high-end experience for golf fans at TPC Sawgrass.
Access to Your Favorite Golfers
Practice rounds are the best time to see your favorite golfers up close and personal and actually be able to track them without getting lost in the shuffle. Follow names like Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka as they get reacquainted with TPC Sawgrass on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Watching during practice rounds also gets you close enough to hear from your favorites as they dissect the course and talk with their caddie about strategy for the upcoming days. And while they're walking between holes, expect interaction with fans and even a few stops for an autograph session.
