The world’s best players head to TPC Sawgrass this week for the PGA Tour’s flagship event, the Players Championship. Since 2007, the Players has been contested in May, but it returns to its original spot on the schedule in March this year, making it the first marquee event of the season.

While there were doubts about whether or not two of the biggest stars in the sport would play, it appears those were quelled on Monday. Both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were out at TPC Sawgrass practising, and they are each scheduled to play on Thursday. Woods had skipped the Arnold Palmer Invitational due to a neck injury, while Mickelson just wanted to see how the course played this time of year before making his final decision.

The two ageing legends will take on arguably the best field in golf, as the likes of Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari, Brooks Koepka and the rest of the top 50 players in the world are all set to tee it up. Webb Simpson, the defending champion, will play alongside Woods and Patrick Reed on Thursday and Friday.
