The Players Championship

Dates:May 10-15, 2016
Location:Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
Course:TPC Sawgrass
Winning Share: $1,890,000


The PGA TOUR professional golf competition that takes everyone's attention during May is the Players Golf Championship. This competition was first celebrated back in 1974 and is kind of new on the worlds of golf.

The competition is going to be played at the TPC Sawgrass located at Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, between May 10-15, 2016.

It is an interesting championship because of the huge purse and the big winner share; the highest prize fund of any tournament in golf ($10 million in 2014). Other than that, the competition offers 600 FEC points. The course has a yardage of 7220 yards and is rated as par 72. The field usually includes the top fifty players in the world rankings, but unlike the three major championships staged in the United States, it is not an official event on the European Tour.

Highlighting the tradition will be a special performance by country music legend Toby Keith on Tuesday, May 10, during Military Appreciation Day. New in 2016, the Military Appreciation Day Ceremony (6 p.m.) and Concert (6:30 p.m.) will be held on the 17th?hole ? instead of the traditional location on the back of the clubhouse lawn ? when the tournament returns to THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, May 10-15.
