It’s not quite a major, but it’s the closest thing to it. The Players Championship
opens today at Sawgrass.
Seven of the last ten winners at the TPC are International players, including defending champion K.J. Choi of Korea.
Wisconsin’s Steve Stricker and Mark Wilson are in the field. Stricker starts the opening round this afternoon at 12:49 and does so in the featured group of the day. He’ll play his first round with #1 ranked Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson.
