2021 Players Championship TV Preview
The Tournament Players Club (TPC) Golf course was built in the late ’70s with the actual players and the fan experience at the forefront of the organiser’s minds. It is a truly remarkable spectacle for the fan, while it can be challenging for the player, with steep bunkers and tricky green placements scattered right across the course.
In the last 12 months, one of the more consistent players on the calendar has been world number one Dustin Johnson – who is tipped by many to feature prominently again this year at TPC Sawgrass. Out of all the Aussies, the best hope is Adam Scott, who has had a great six months. Other home hopes come in the shape of Jason Day, Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith, but there is also a wealth of talented Americans who will be looking to put their name on the trophy come March 12th.
When: Friday March 12 – Monday March 15
Where: Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida
