In fact the cash prize to win this tournament is the biggest of any golf competition on the circuit. However, despite its importance. The Players is not an official event of the European Tour like the three other US majors, which surely has to change sooner or later!
The winner also earns 600 FedEX Cup points, if they are a PGA Tour member, a 5-year exemption on the PGA Tour, three-year invitation to the Masters Tournament, the U.S. Open and The Open, so it’s widely recognized.
Players like Jason Day, Alex Cejka, Jonas Blixt and Shane Lowry will be attempting to emulate last year’s winner Rickie Fowler, who managed to hold off Sergio Garcia in a thrilling playoff. We hope this year’s tournament will provide an equally as thrilling finish and we have a tie going into the final round!
It’s going to be a tense finish on the final day of the tourney, and we’re not sure which way it’s going to go. May the best golfer win!
