GOLF.com's Ryan Asselta asks Stewart Cink, Lucas Glover and Tony Finau whether or not they think the Players should shed its "unofficial" fifth major label and be treated like the other four.

How much money does the winner of the Players Championship bring home? The exact same as Patrick Reed did for winning the Masters. Not a bad payday.

First place for winning the Players at TPC Sawgrass is $1.98 million, but even the runner-up cashes a check of $1.188 million.

This year's purse was increased to a tournament-record $11 million following last year's $10.5 million total. 2017 winner Si Woo Kim and 2016 champ Jason Day both brought home first-place checks of $1.890 million the past two years.
