The Players Championship is one of the biggest tournaments in golf, typically featuring the top 50 professional players in the world rankings. Most notably, The Players Championship currently has the largest payout of any tournament in the PGA Tour with a whopping $15 million purse. The fattest purse used to be offered at the U.S. Open (which currently pays $12.5 million) before The Players Championship surpassed it last year. However, the 2020 tournament was unfortunately canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so this will be the first year that the $15 million purse is up for grabs.
The winner of The Players Championship in 2019 was Rory McIlroy (who took home $2,250,000 of the $12.5 million purse offered that year). McIlroy, who now sits at the 11th spot on the PGA Tour rankings, was the top-ranked player in the world for a 106-week run which started on March 12. He’ll be competing with other star players including current top-ranked golfer Dustin Johnson and third-ranked golfer Justin Thomas, among others.
If you want to watch The Players Championship live, now’s the time to sign up for sign up for Hulu + Live TV. This package includes the Golf Channel, making it one of the best ways to stream the PGA Tour for the remainder of the 2020-2021 season, which culminates in the Tour Championship in September.
