Make sure you miss none of the action from TPC Sawgrass and The Players Championship.
The Players Championship Live Stream
The PGA Tour heads to its flagship event this week, The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass.
As you would expect the world’s best will be in attendance with the big exceptions being Tiger Woods who is still recovering from his accident, and Brooks Koepka who withdrew recently citing a knee sprain.
Regardless the event is always one of the best of the year as it has a good combination of the best players, exciting golf holes including the tumultuous final stretch, and up and down conditions in regards to wind. Speaking of which every day is forecast to have roughly 10mph of wind so we could be in for a very interesting event indeed.
Of course because the tournament was cancelled during play in 2020, Rory McIlroy continues to be the defending champion after his victory in 2019.
Also if you want to add to the excitement further you can play weekly Fantasy golf games through Zweeler. On the website you can pick players and win money every week or you can play a season-long game in which you have a roster of 22 players.
In this weeks game, you have a budget of 150 million to buy 15 players of which you think are going to win the most points during the WGC event. You can earn points in every round and for the general classification.
