Golf Tips and Predictions: The Players

News Content


The Players is the last tournament on the Florida Swing of the PGA Tour, and it happens to be the biggest one as well.

The top ten players in the world are all confirmed locks to be at this event, and the fan support will be next level.

A tournament that has been a historic Championship for many of the game’s great legends, the Players will involve a ton of gritty effort in order to get the dub.

This year’s weather conditions at the Sawgrass should be good enough for most of these players to succeed but factoring in the wind and other factors could be important in the overall grand scheme.

Putting comes into an even greater microscope when it comes to the Players, because of its intense pressure.

Every mistake will cost you on the final day on Sunday, and we wouldn’t be surprised if there is a playoff to be played between the top two performers.

Let’s get into some of the best players to watch on!

Players to Watch For

Jon Rahm - Best Player in the World

Jon Rahm is seriously on another level currently.

The ASU graduate is playing with some real confidence and turning heads in the best way possible.

Rahm has been unbelievable in all aspects of his game.

Whether it's getting a lucky bounce on the 18th, or sinking a clutch putt from 20 feet out, Rahm has proved that he deserves this number one ranking.

Overtaking Scottie Scheffler is no easy feat, and he will be at the top of the field for one of the biggest tournaments of the year.

Rahm has not done all of this without crowd support, and as he is starting to gain momentum the fans will come out to show love on every hole.

His ability to stay composed even in the rough situations has shone through his play, and he looks to be another dangerous man in the field for the Players.

Look for Rahm to continue his dominant display, and possibly challenge for the title this weekend.

Justin Thomas - 2021 Winner returns

JT hasn’t had the cleanest of seasons so far, but the 2021 winner will return to a place that he likes to call home.

After the departure of Cameron Smith to LIV Golf, Thomas will continue his aspirations on the PGA Tour.

A huge fan favorite with a ton of backing, Thomas will be trying to get back into his groove with a good result at the Players this weekend.

JT generally does well in these conditions, although there might be a few questions about his long game this time around.

Sinking clutch putts is his specialty, and there’s no reason he shouldn’t be in the running come Sunday.

Scottie Scheffler - No Longer World #1

Scottie Scheffler will take it personal that he has been dethroned by Jon Rahm for the world #1 spot on the PGA Tour.

Scheffler had a great 2022 but has been stumbling in his most recent contests to start 2023.

Scottie is still a great talent in the game and has a ton of time left in his career to regain that number one spot.

He can certainly do damage and possibly retake this position with a win here at the Players.

Scheffler has struggled with the early bogeys during previous tournaments, but if he can start off hot here, we have a great spectacle to behold!
