Top Picks for The Players Championship 2020
The Players Championship is the PGA Tour’s flagship event.
Also referred to as the fifth major, it offers the biggest prize purse in professional golf.
The Players Championship is also one of the most prestigious events in golf and pays off the most world ranking points outside of the four majors.
Naturally, the field is stacked with quality players, and the competition is set to feature many names from the top of the rankings.
Here are the top picks for this week.
The defending champion, McIlroy will have a shot at making history this week.
No player has ever managed to win back-to-back titles in the Championship’s 36-year history.
The Northern Irishman’s win last year ignited his run to the top of the world ranking.
McIlroy has not finished lower than fifth in seven events this season, six of which were officially part of the PGA Tour.
He is coming off three consecutive fifth-place finishes.
McIlroy has four top 10 results in his last seven The Players Championship appearances.
Simpson is in great form this season.
The 2018 winner has only missed out on a top 10 result once in seven tournaments.
Simpson scored back-to-back top 3 finishes with a third-place at the Sony Open and a win at the Phoenix Open.
While his most recent appearance ended in a disappointing +5 and a T61 at the WGC Mexico, he has a good chance of bouncing back this week.
Simpson shot a solid –10 last year, scoring a T16 finish.
Im’s hot streak continued at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
The young Korean followed his first PGA Tour win with a third place finish, his fourth top 3 result in 2019-20.
Im is having a great season with five top 10 finishes in 14 events, having missed out on the cut only once.
He failed to make it past the second round in last year’s edition of The Players Championship, his only appearance at TPC Sawgrass.
This result, however, doesn’t mean much compared to his current form.
Fleetwood remained in the run for last year’s title right until the end.
The Englishman led the first two rounds and was second in round 3 before dropping to fifth at the end.
He finished a respectable seventh in 2018.
Fleetwood had a disappointing showing at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and failed to make the cut for the first time this season.
He was coming off a season-best third place at the Honda Classic, however, so this looks like a minor hiccup.
Day is worth keeping an eye on for this week.
The 2016 champion has three top 10 results in the last four editions of The Players Championship.
Day’s consistency at TPC Sawgrass naturally places him among the favorites.
On the other hand, the Australian is coming off a bad sequence, failing to make the cut at the Genesis Invitational and withdrawing from the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Prior to this, however, Day had a fourth place at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am and won the Japan Skins.
