One of the biggest PGA Tour events of the year is here, as a loaded field is at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, for the Players Championship, the fourth designated event in five weeks.
Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy, the top three players in the Official World Golf Ranking, are paired together for the first two rounds and will tee off at 7:56 a.m. ET Thursday.
