Sportsbook.ag The Players Golf Championship at Sawgrass Preview
Another 144-man field descends on TPC Sawgrass this week as The Players Championship tees off. Experience has played a major role in determining the champion in recent years. Of the last seven champions, six of them were playing in at least their eighth Players. With that in mind, here’s a look at this week’s best bets …
Sergio Garcia (30/1): He’s the all-time money leader at Sawgrass, with three top-5’s in his 12 starts (including a win in 2008) and a T12 last year. Garcia has also showed some signs of a resurgence in 2012, including a T12 in his last start, at the Masters.
Nick Watney (40/1): A major disappointment so far in 2012, Watney showed some signs of life last week at the Wells Fargo, leading after 54 holes before fading to an eighth-place finish. He posted a T4 at Sawgrass a year ago.
Lee Westwood (12/1): This will be the 10th Players for Westwood, who finished T4 in 2010. He’s coming off a strong weekend at Quail Hollow, going 68-66 over the weekend to lead the field en route to a T5. He currently leads the Tour in greens in regulation (74.72%).
Hunter Mahan (30/1): Mahan finished T6 at The Players a year ago, his sixth start at Sawgrass. He’s the only two-time winner on the Tour in 2012.
Luke Donald (15/1): He finished T4 at Sawgrass a year ago (his second top-5 in nine career starts), and Donald is heating up just in time for his return. He finished alone in third in New Orleans two weeks ago to give him three top-6 finishes (including a win at Transitions) in his past five starts.
