Players Championship 2014: Day 1 Tee Times, TV Schedule and Live Stream Coverage
Chuck Burton/Associated Press

The Players Championship isn't technically a major, but it sure feels like one. TPC Sawgrass is one of the most challenging courses, and the field is always a representation of the best players in the world.

Obviously, Tiger Woods is on the mend, so he won't be playing this year. But it seems Woods' presence is missed most before the tournament begins.

Once play starts, the other players have proved more than capable of thrilling fans of the sport.

To play off the PGA Tour slogan: All these guys are really good.

Players to Watch

Rory McIlroy

You can pretty much pencil Rory's name into every "players to watch" section of every pre-tournament article. This is especially the case with Woods gone. McIlroy has taken Woods' place as the most over-covered player on tour.

The attention hasn't been doing him much good.

He's had just one top-five finish, and even that came with a bitter taste at the end. McIlroy lost a playoff to Russell Henley at the Honda Classic after seemingly having the tournament locked up.

Per this quote from Golf.com, McIlroy knows things need to change.

Even with the less-than ideal finishes so far this season, McIlroy is still a 12-1 favorite to win the Players Championship, per Odds Shark.

 

Adam Scott

Just behind Rory in the odds business is Scott. He's listed at 14-1. The 2013 Masters champion is currently ranked No. 2 in the world and has three top-five finishes this season.

Scott seemed to find himself big time in 2013.

He plays with a confidence now that, when coupled with his high skill level, makes for a formidable opponent on any course. Per Golf Magazine in Australia, Scott needs a top-16 finish to pass Tiger Woods and to become the No. 1-ranked player in the world.

Needless to say, he'll be gunning for it.

 

Jordan Spieth

John Raoux/Associated Press

If you're looking for a sleeper, your man might be Spieth. He's only listed at 28-1 odds, but he's had some success at TPC Sawgrass.

Brian Wacker of PGATour.com says:

Jordan Spieth is making his Players Championship debut this week, but it isn't his first trip to TPC Sawgrass.

As an amateur, Spieth played in the Junior Players in 2010. He tied for second after Michael Johnson rolled in a 20-foot putt for bogey on the last hole to win by one.

That experience, iron will, iced veins and a good amount of talent could make him the man at this year's Players Championship. He finished second at the Masters and could be ready to take this unofficial major for his trophy case.
