It's never easy predicting the winner of any golf tournament, especially one with the type of world-class field gathered this week for The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass. That said, Players history tells us to bet on proven and experienced golfers who know their way around the Stadium Course and its challenging stretch of closing holes.
Golfers with positive momentum, a solid TPC Sawgrass resume and the steely nerves to handle the test are our favorites during this challenging week on the Stadium Course. It's the toughest test of golf this side of a major championship, and it's going to take a world-class golfer, or one with a seriously hot swing, to win it come Sunday afternoon.
Sunday is a long way away, but here is how we see the top of the leaderboard playing out and the odds of winning for those players we see contending down the stretch.
