The Players Championship isn’t just golf’s unofficial fifth major — it’s also one of the most beautiful backdrops on the PGA Tour. TPC Sawgrass’s iconic 17th hole is one of the sport’s most recognizable settings — and the most likely place to catch one of the world’s best golfers cursing under his breath after swirling winds carry a wedge shot into the water that surrounds the island green.
Through one day of action, William McGirt avoided those frustrations. The 13-year pro was a surprise presence atop the leaderboard, where he shares the top spot with Canadian Mackenzie Hughes. That duo will have to fend off a field dotted with elite golfers to run all the way to the title and a $1.89 million payday. Stars like Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, and Sergio Garcia are all lurking, waiting to make their move up the standings before this weekend’s deciding rounds.
Dustin Johnson (7-to-1) was the odds-on favorite to win this weekend at TPC Sawgrass entering Round 1, but he’ll have to fend off Rory McIlroy (10/1), Jordan Spieth (12/1) and 2017 Masters champion Sergio Garcia (18/1) to name a few superstars. And don’t underestimate William McGirt and Mackenzie Hughes, who were tied atop the Players Championship leaderboard after firing 5-under 67s in Round 1. Four golfers were tied at 4-under after the first round, and 11 more finished at 3-under.
