Tune In to the 2023 Players Championship: Who Will Win the Record-Breaking $4.5 Million Prize?
The 2023 Players Championship is just around the corner, and this year promises to be an exciting one. The tournament will take place from Thursday, March 9, through Sunday, March 12, at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. The action can be seen on NBC, Peacock and Golf Channel.
The top Vegas favorites for the 2023 Players Championship include Jon Rahm (+850), Patrick Cantlay (+1900), Justin Thomas (+1900), and Scottie Scheffler (+1000). However, SportsLine's proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, is calling for a major surprise this week, including a long shot who could make a serious run at the title.
The model is also targeting a handful of head-to-head matchup plays and one-and-done picks that could bring HUGE payouts. Join SportsLine now to see Mike McClure's top prop picks for the 2023 Players Championship, all from the expert who's up over $9,600 on his golf best bets.
World No. 1 Jon Rahm withdrew prior to the second round, citing a stomach illness. That opens the door for the likes of Viktor Hovland (+2700), Rickie Fowler (+5000), Hideki Matsuyama (+8500), and Kurt Kitayama (+3500) to make a run at the title.
The Players champion will take home a record-breaking $4.5 million, the largest winner's share in PGA Tour history. Collin Morikawa (+2800) is among the favorites this week, and if he wins, he would become the second player to have two majors and a Players Championship win before age 27, joining Tiger Woods.
TV coverage of the tournament will take place from Thursday, March 9, 12-6 p.m. ET on Golf Channel and Peacock, Friday, March 10, 12-6 p.m. ET on Golf Channel, and Saturday-Sunday, 1 p.m.-6 p.m. ET on NBC. There are also live streams available from 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET on ESPN+ and 7:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
