The biggest event of the first quarter of golf’s year has arrived with the best field of 2022 yet ready to put on a show at The Players Championship. The pristine TPC Sawgrass course will serve as host with the first 18 holes set to set the stage for what should be a terrific tournament on Thursday in Round 1.

This week could be a chore. Tons of rain are expected, including during the first two days, and high winds could descend over the weekend. This should favor ball hitters, players who can get their golf ball flying in gusts and hold it against some of the heaviest things on the multitude of waterholes TPC Sawgrass has to offer.

Whatever the weather, this week’s players should rock. It’s a massive event with huge career involvement and a trophy (not to mention the $3.6 million first-place cash prize) that could crown someone as the Masters favorite. Between the island green at No. 17, the loaded rankings and a handful of golfers trying to overtake Jon Rahm as the world’s No. 1 player, the next four days will absolutely rock.
