Next up on the PGA TOUR is THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass. Following our OAD win with Charley Hoffman at the Valero Texas Open, we are stuck in a rut with a Justin Rose MC in New Orleans and a meaningless finish by J.B. Holmes at Quail Hollow last week. The pressure is on, and the massive purse gives us every reason to do our best this week.
As a general rule, I'm not a fan of getting cute at THE PLAYERS. The purse is just too big and there is still plenty of time to catch up if trailing.
As much as I love Russell Knox this week, I'm holstering him for the more proven Sergio Garcia. Many (or all) of you have been burned by Garcia at some point, but you have to feel pretty good about five, top-four finishes at TPC Sawgrass including a win and two runner-ups to go with just two missed cuts in 16 tries.
Let's go, Sergio!
