The 2022 Players Championship returns to TPC Sawgrass March 10-13. Justin Thomas will return as the defending champion. In 2021 Thomas won $2.7 million for his one-shot victory, the 14th PGA Tour title of his career. No player has ever won back-to-back Players Championship titles, so Thomas will look to make history this year.
Phil Mickelson will not play in the 2022 Players Championship. Mickelson has been embroiled in controversy for comments he made about a breakaway golf league funded by the Saudi Arabian government, and he announced that he would be taking some time away from golf. In all, 48 of the top 50 players in the world are on the field.
TPC Sawgrass is most famous for its par-3 17th hole island green. It’s only 137 yards long, but it has been the scene of many famous Players Championship meltdowns — and winning moments — over the years.
Here are answers to some of the most often asked questions around this year’s event, including TV times, schedule, the field, and more.

The PLAYERS Championship Preview – Betting Strategies
Before we get into it, it’s important to note that course history might not be as good of a tool to use this week as it is at other tournaments. The move from May to March changed this tournament drastically. For starters, agronomy is totally different. Firm and fast Bermuda dominated the turf at TPC Sawgrass in May. In March, however, the golf course is overseeded. Fairways and rough are overseeded with Ryegrass, while the greens are overseeded with Poa trivialis and Velvet Bentgrass. The PGA Tour does a
good job of making sure the greens are kept firm. But as for the fairways, they’re much softer with the overseed than a firm Bermuda would allow for.
And second, this tournament sees a ton of turnover every year on the leaderboard. TPC Sawgrass is a golf course that doesn’t particularly favor one set style of play. Players have to plod around the golf course and play the holes as Pete Dye intended. Year after year, there’s some parody in terms of what types of golfers appear in the Top 10. For every Bryson DeChambeau, there’s a Brian Harman. And there’s some volatility year to year for one’s results.
Players Championship 2022: First Look At Betting Odds
It’s an insult to the actual major golf championships to call The Players Championship the “fifth major,” as the PGA Tour does, but there’s no debating this is a big week in golf.
The biggest non-major event on the PGA Tour calendar gets started Thursday afternoon at TPC Sawgrass with an absolutely star-studded field making its way to the Tour’s world headquarters.
Justin Thomas will try to defend his title, as players continue to ramp up for the major season, which will be less than a month away when the first tee ball flies Thursday morning at Sawgrass. Scottie Scheffler, meanwhile, comes in with all the momentum in the world. He hung on to outlast a host of golfers to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational during another brutal Bay Hill weekend. Scheffler has now won two of his last three
starts (with a seventh-place finish at the Genesis sandwiched in between) and has worked himself into the top five in the world.
Not only is it a huge week for Tour players, but it’s also one of the most exciting weeks of the season for golf bettors and DFS players.

One thing to keep in mind as you fill out your betting cards and lineups for the week: Weather looks like it could be an issue this weekend at Sawgrass. Early Jacksonville forecasts have an 80% chance of thunderstorms on Thursday and Friday and straight rain (50% chance) on Saturday. The wind also figures to be a factor in what could be a tricky weekend weather-wise.
