The Players Championship 2017: Though it may not be described as a major, The Players Championship comes close to holding the prestige of one and is an event that golfers circle on their calendar each year with hopes of winning.
Course changes to TPC Sawgrass have made things a bit trickier for this year’s field, and No. 17 is always a daunting hole for even the surest shot.
CBS Sports will be with you throughout the entire Players Championship with live updates, highlights and more. Be sure to check out the leaderboard along with those
The biggest post-Masters tournament is here as the 2017 Players Championship rolls in with the best field of the calendar year. A revamped TPC Sawgrass Stadium meets wall-to-wall coverage all weekend including every angle of every shot on the famous 17th island green hole.
This tournament has given us tremendous winners in each of the last five years (Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Martin Kaymer, Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar), and I expect nothing different this time around.
