Dustin Johnson

World number one Dustin Johnson enters the week fresh after opting not to play in the Arnold Palmer Invitational last week, but since winning the illustrious Green Jacket at Augusta at the rearranged Masters last Autumn, DJ has shown some indifferent form in the three tournaments proceeding. Within this time, the world's top golfer finished with T-11, T-8 and T-54, the latter coming at the WGC-Workday, where he shot a surprising +5.

Despite this, the stats speak for themselves. Over his career, he averages a top 10 finish in every 2.6 events he competes in, with 24 wins on the Tour to show for it. He is a two-time major winner for a reason.

The American's win at Augusta in November saw him shoot the lowest ever four-round score at the Masters (268, 20-under-par) and his winning margin of five was the biggest since Tiger Woods’ memorable destruction of the field in 1997, the man who would go on to present him with the Green Jacket afterwards. Gone are the days of his 12-foot three-putt on the 18th on Sunday at Chambers Bay and his final day 82 at Pebble Beach at US Open’s in 2015 and 2010, as his consistent big wins have helped rid him of that notorious ‘bottler’ tag.

DJ is 11/1 to win his first-ever Players’ Championship.

DUSTIN JOHNSON TO WIN PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP @ 11/1

Bryson DeChambeau

Most eyes at TPC Sawgrass this week will be fixated on API winner and reigning US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau. He is certainly not everybody’s cup of tea, but whether or not you wish upon his demise, the American certainly brings entertainment to golf, with his near 400-yard drives and wild unpredictability.

The most surprising aspect of his win last week was that he shot par on all nine holes coming in as he maintained his narrow lead over Lee Westwood, showing that there is some finesse to his game at times, on top of the often questionable short-game and bunker-seeking tee shots.

Any repeat of his previous two appearances at the Players’ (37th and 20th) will be an underachievement in the eyes of DeChambeau, who is certainly looking to enjoy as much success as possible during this stage of his career, as it will not long before his extremely aggressive playstyle takes its toll on his body. After missing 16 cuts in the 2017 season, he has missed just ten in the four seasons since, claiming eight wins on the PGA Tour, and he is one of the favourites this week, priced at 12/1 to make it back-to-back victories.

Viktor Hovland

One of Europe’s finest upcoming prospects is Norway’s Viktor Hovland. He has been professional for barely 18 months but already has two Tour titles to his name, and eight top tens on top of that, with his most recent success coming at the Mayakoba Classic in December. He followed up that win by carding three top fives, including two second-place finishes at the Farmers Insurance Open and the WGC-Workday.

His recent form is much better than the likes of Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Tommy Fleetwood meaning he is one of the top players from the continent at the moment, and his form in the States is promising news for European fans and Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington as they prepare to set off for Wisconsin and Whistling Straits in September.

Hovland is 6/1 to finish as the top European at the PLAYERS Championship and 20/1 to win without the 'big six'.

VIKTOR HOVLAND TO FINISH AS THE TOP EUROPEAN @ 6/1

Jordan Spieth

Emerging back from the golfing shadows is three-time major winner Jordan Spieth, whose renaissance has surprised most fans who thought his career was spiralling into obscurity. Since his last win at the 2017 Open Championship, he has recorded the same amount of top tens (15) as he did in the 2015 PGA Tour season, but three of those have come in the last month alone, a great shock after missing four cuts and finishing T-46 at the Masters in the beginning of the season.

Spieth has not shown this sort of form since he was at his peak between 2015 and 2017, and if he replicates the performances he produced in that period of his career, he is in with a shout of all the big tournaments. He will hope for a big improvement on his previous visits to Sawgrass though, as he has missed the cut in four of his last five appearances at the Players’, after finishing T-4 in his debut in 2014.

At 25/1, Spieth is one to watch this week.

Sung-jae Im

A wildcard choice to win at Sawgrass this week is South Korea’s Sung-jae Im, a man who is rapidly becoming the leading force among the Asian players in world golf. Still just 22, he is already a winner on the PGA Tour, winning the Honda Classic just two weeks before the Players’ last year, and his respectable three-under-par opening round here suggests he could have gone onto have a strong tournament, had it not been cancelled following Thursday’s action.

Im will look to follow in the footsteps of his compatriot Si Woo Kim who also won here in his early 20s in 2017, and his performance at the Masters in November shows he is capable at the main events, finishing second only to the runaway Dustin Johnson at Augusta.

He also looks a very solid each-way option given his consistent finishes in and around the top ten, and he is a player who rarely misses the cut, doing so just once this season in 15 events.

Im is priced at 50/1 with Sky Bet to win outright here, and they are also paying out each way for the first 10 places this week.
