    Favorites to win The Players Championship at Sawgrass

    The Players Championship is one of the most venerable tournaments on the PGA Tour schedule. Winning the event gives PGA professionals 80 points toward their tour rankings, which is the second most after the four Majors, each of which yields 100 points. Of course, the biggest reason that the best golfers in the world vie for the Players title is that it boasts the largest prize money of any single tournament. The 2019 Players actually holds the record for the greatest prize purse in PGA Tour history: The total winnings amount to $12.5 million with the winner receiving the lion’s share at $2.25 million.
     
    Determining who has the best chance to win the 2019 tournament, held on the Players Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass in Florida, takes two major factors into account. The tournament is being held in March for the first time since 2006 (it had been held over Mother’s Day weekend in May since 2007), which reduces the number of events played leading up to the tournament and limiting the total statistical analysis in figuring out who might or might not win. In addition, the advent of advanced statistical measures like strokes gained help to create win probabilities on a deeper level.
     
    In determining this year’s favorites, Stacker looked at a number of different measures to figure out who has the best odds of taking home the prize. Of course, there are the gambling odds over at Bovada, which break down who might win based on past performance and where the money is landing at casinos. But Stacker also looked carefully at strokes gained from the PGA Tour’s stat sheets. To put it in layman’s terms, the various strokes gained stats are calculated by ShotLink technology which is powered by CDW to measure a player’s performance from every spot on the golf course. A baseline statistic is then created from that location to determine whether a player did better or worse than every other competitor from that exact spot. The variety of strokes gained categories include off-the-tee, approach-the-green, around-the-green, and putting.

    Stacker analyzed all the data as of March 11, 2019, and ranked the top-50 competitors in the Players Championship field from lowest to highest odds to win the tournament. Ties were broken by the 2019 World Rankings.
     
    Will Tiger Woods break through and win his third Players crown? Will Phil Mickelson beat Father Time to earn his second ever title at Sawgrass? Can Webb Simpson repeat as champion and become the first-ever, back-to-back winner? The odds and statistics can help guide the way in determining the winner of the 2019 Players Championship.
