7 people not in the field at the Players who had as good of a week as Martin Kaymer

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- With his win at the Players, Martin Kaymer took home a beautiful crystal trophy and $1.8 million. But he wasn't the only person who had a great week at TPC Sawgrass. Here are seven others who enjoyed their time at the event:

1. This guy, who got Jordan Spieth to sign a glove he was wearing. We just hope he let the little boy next to him get an autograph, too.

2. These guys, who watched the pros while enjoying beers on the cool high tables by the practice green. Of course, they didn't look too thrilled with me taking a picture of them. . .

3. J.R. Smith, the New York Knicks star, who posed with the Players trophy on Thursday. . .

And walked inside the ropes with Rory McIlroy on Sunday. Hopefully, the 13-handicapper got some good tips.

4. This kid, who somehow got inside the ropes with McIlroy to get an autograph. Pretty crafty.

5. This kid, William Haas Jr., who we know had good access to the players all week thanks to his dad, Bill. He didn't have to answer any annoying questions from the media.

6. These guys, who took a break from watching golf to play corn hole. Hey, does that guy on the left need a teammate?

7. This guy, who seemed to really enjoy meeting the Grey Goose girls. Good for him.
