PGA Golf: Players Championships Betting Picks & Tips

2017 Players Championship

The 2017 Players Championship will take place this weekend. It’s known as the 44th championship and will be held at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach in Florida. This is the 36th time the event has been played at this course. The course adds up to more than 7,200 yards and plays as a par 72. There is expected to be 146 golfers in the field with the defending champion Jason Day expected to play. Overall, there are 9 guys that have won the event playing this season.

Dustin Johnson +700

Ah – the top golfer in the country. Coming off a strong weekend at the Wells Fargo. You can never really go wrong with Dustin Johnson. Since getting hurt before the Masters, it appears D.J. is back on the right track. At +700, the big hitter known as Dustin Johnson is the favorite to win the 2017 Players Championship.

Rory McIlroy +1000

The 28-year-old from Northern Ireland is 33rd in the country. He has finished in the Top 10 in his last four events. The 7th place finish at the Masters earned him more than $350,000. McIIroy has the skills to win anytime, any place. At +1000, he seems to be poised for a big weekend run.

Jordan Spieth +1400

This is our guy. Jordan Spieth is really good at the game of golf. The weather is going to be ideal, and Spieth is rested and ready to roll. The 23-year-old is 7th in the world right now and nearing $3M in earnings. Spieth was disappointed after the Masters, but finished 11th and made $233K. Spieth is coming out with a vengeance here. Jordan Spieth at +1400 is a great value.

Jon Rahm +2000

The hottest name in golf keeps showing up but needs to come away with a title. He is 50% in Top 10 finishes this season. He has made nearly $4M, so he certainly is not a bust. But, to win the big one will really put Rahm on the map. He finished 4th at the Wells Fargo last week and was 27th at the Masters. Look for Rahm to give the big dogs at the top a run for their money.

Adam Scott +4000

Just outside the top 10 in terms of odds to win the event. Scott has a short memory, and he will need it following his 36th place finish last week at the Wells Fargo Championship. Scott made a run at the Masters and finished making over $300,000. Scott finished 9th by shooting a 286. Look for Scott to use his ability to putt to keep himself involved at the top of this event.

There you have it. Those are a few guys we like in the 2017 Players Championship. We hope you took a few of our betting picks and tips, and win some big time money this weekend. Our final pick to win the 2017 Players Championship is Jordan Spieth. We still feel Jordan Spieth at +1400 is your best chance to win some good money. Of course, Johnson and McIlroy are going to be tough to beat, and Jason Day won’t go down easy, but Spieth is in a good spot here.
