The Players Championship
May 7, 2012 to May 13, 2012
The game’s greatest players compete at TPC Sawgrass THE PLAYERS Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra Beach. THE PLAYERS Championship is recognized by PGA TOUR members as their championship tournament. It features one of the most coveted titles in professional golf, the strongest field of competitors and the richest purse. Previous winners of THE PLAYERS Championship include K.J. Choi in 2011, Tim Clark in 2010, Henrik Stenson in 2009, Sergio Garcia in 2008, Phil Mickelson in 2007, Stephen Ames in 2006, Fred Funk in 2005, and many other greats.
This year’s tournament schedule includes Monday through Wednesday, practice rounds, Military Appreciation Day on Wednesday and the main THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP Tournament Thursday through Sunday, which will be broadcast live on the Golf Channel from 1 to 7 p.m. and on NBC on Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 7 p.m. For ticket package information, call 904-285-PUTT or 800-741-3161 or visit www.pgatour.com.
And don’t feel like you have to stay in Ponte Vedra to see the action–lovely St. Augustine is just 15 minutes away. In fact, I’ve heard that there are still some very nice rooms at the Bayfront Marin House.
