TPC Sawgrass and its iconic island green at 17 await the best field in golf at the Players Championship. Rickie Fowler, coming off a disappointing Sunday at Quail Hollow, returns to defend his title against the Big Three and a deep field of top-tier players.
Fowler tees off at 1:36 p.m. (EST) with Adam Scott and Matt Kuchar, all past winners in Ponte Vedra Beach. World No. 1 Jason Day tees it up at 8:43 a.m. Thursday with Jordan Spieth and Branden Grace, as Spieth makes his return to tournament play following his Masters loss.
And if you want bombers off the tee, the trio of Bubba Watson, Rory McIlory and Dustin Johnson tee off at 1:58 p.m.
