One of the most eagerly anticipated tournaments of the year, The Players Championship, takes place at TPC Sawgrass in Florida this week, with a record purse up for grabs and one of the most competitive fields you’ll find anywhere.

TPC Sawgrass is known for its many bunkers and water hazards, most notably the iconic island green at the 17th, which is regarded as one of the most difficult par 3s in the game. Players will be mindful of those potential pitfalls as they aim to get off to a good start when they tee off on Thursday. 

Defending champion Justin Thomas begins his bid to become the first player to win back-to-back Players Championships at 12.56pm in a group with Rory McIlroy and Collin Morikawa. In another high-profile group, John Rahm, Patrick Cantlay and Viktor Hovland tee off earlier, at 7.51am. Here is the full list of tee times for the first and second rounds:
