Major or not a major, Tiger or no Tiger, there's no denying: This is one of the best fields and one of the best tournaments of the year. By our count, we have 48 of the top 50 players in the world (no Tiger and no Lee Westwood, who chose to take the week off as Tiger rests his back). But this field is deep, as well. The schedule change and the strength of this field is part of what makes the Players Championship one of the most intriguing events in golf.

As we usually see, any type of player can exceed at TPC Sawgrass, making it increasingly intriguing. We've seen plodders like Tim Clark and Fred Funk win, but we've also had Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy win here. Position golf at a Pete Dye course will usually put you in contention, so the best golf is often rewarded. That'll be key as we start handicapping this deep field later in the week.

As we do, be sure to check out the odds below, courtesy of BetMGM. And if you're in New Jersey, check out the new BetMGM app. If you don't have an account, BetMGM has a great offer that you need to take advantage of: Use the code GOLFDIGEST, and use your first wager of $20 or more on a golfer to win the Players Championship, and you'll get $100 in free bets if your golfer makes the cut. It's that simple: download the app, create an account and use the GOLFDIGEST promo code, then place your first wager (of $20 or more) on an outright, pre-tournament wager to win the Players, and you'll get $100 in free bets if your guy makes the cut.
