2022 Players at TPC Sawgrass: How to watch, live stream, odds & tee times

The Players is finally upon us at TPC Sawgrass. 

Justin Thomas returns to the field as the defending champion and will attempt to become the first player since its inception to retain it. 

A punch drunk Rory McIlroy is here, too, and presumably he has sobered up from his experience at Bay Hill

There is no Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods or Bryson DeChambeau. Rickie Fowler, too, a former champion, failed to qualify. 

There is absolutely no denying: The Players offers the drama and prestige of a major. 

That famous stretch of holes. The par-15 16th, the island green on the 17th and water all the way up the left hand side down the last. 

Over the first two days' play, the marquee groups promise to be something no golf fan will want to turn away from. 

Who will take home the $3.6million winner's share?
