Players Championship Golf History


The Players Championship began in 1974 at Atlanta Country Club in Marietta, Georgia. The tournament moved to the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas in 1975 and the Inverrary Country Club in Lauderhill, Florida in 1976.

In 1977 the PGA Tour agreed to move the Players Championship to Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach. Since 1982 the tournament has been played at the Stadium Course at TPC at Sawgrass in Florida.

In 2007 the Players Championship was moved to May from late March, part of a restructuring of the PGA Tour that saw the FedEx Cup established which concluded with The Tour Championship. 

The switch enabled the PGA Tour to have a marquee event in six consecutive months (The Masters in April, The Players Championship in May, the US Open in June, The Open Championship in July, the PGA Championship in August, and the Tour Championship in September).

In 2019 the Players Championship returned to March and the PGA Championship switched from August to May.

The Players Championship has never seen a player win in consecutive years. Jack Nicklaus won three of the first five tournaments and since moving to TPC Sawgrass in 1982 five players have won twice, the shortest span between victories being six years.

The 2020 Players Championship was scheduled to be held from 12-15 March but was canceled by the PGA Tour after day one due to the coronavirus pandemic. The tour had announced that the tournament would proceed behind closed doors for the remaining three days but decided it was in the best interest of the players and everyone involved if the tournament was canceled.
