I’ve been having this week circled on the calendar for a while now, nothing special going on in life….just the fact that we have arrived at golfs fifth major!
This year, the Players Championship is being played in March due to the schedule change that came into effect this year. I have to say that I enjoy this schedule layout a lot better, the Masters has yet to arrive and people are already watching golf in March.
Thankfully, I don’t have any major obligations this weekend so I am looking forward to following the tournament and rooting for players I have placed some bets on. This week I threw some money down on Sergio, Hideki, and Poulter. Sergio has won here before and seems to always play well here, he has been in great form recently so hopefully he is able to keep things rolling. Please no meltdowns however.
As for Hideki, it would be nice if he could learn how to putt this week, which seems to always be the issue with him. He manages to place inside the top 5 and 10 with poor putting, even an average week with the flat stick may be good enough to win.
As for Poulter, I’d love for him to win one of these big tournaments. The past two years he has finished 3rd and 11th here so the upside is there, hopefully his game is there as well this week.
Anyways, I’m just happy to be able to be able to watch this years tournament. Last year I wasn’t able to watch the final round because of Mother’s day, priorities of course.
Hopefully you all get to tune in as well this year!
Will you be watching the Players Championship this week? Are you rooting for anyone in particular? Let’s discuss in the comments section below!
