The Players Championship boasts one of the strongest fields in golf, and this year is no different. Jason Day dominated the field last year, and Rickie Fowler won in dramatic fashion in 2016. Who will win this week at TPC Sawgrass? Our panel offers their picks (and even some sleepers).
Jeff Ritter: Since returning from his early season rib injury, Rory has quietly rang up a bunch of top-10s, and he also has a solid Sawgrass track record. He’s gonna win somewhere soon. Why not now? For a sleeper, Wes Bryan already looks like the Tour’s ROY, and his fearlessness could serve him well this week.
Alan Bastable: Sergio. What’s the Spanish phrase for “oozing confidence on a golf course that he loves” — five top-12 finishes since ’08! Sleeper: Sergio. Just me or is no one talking about him this week?
