Details of The Players Championship Golf and the Ticket Luck value
Annually held golf tournament on the PGA tour namely, The Players Championship Golf was inaugurated in 1974 at Atlanta Country Club in Marietta, Georgia before moving to Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas in 1975 and Inverrary Country Club in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 1976.
Opening in 1977, the event repositioned to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, first being played at Sawgrass Country Club's Oceanside Course (a combination of the East and West 9-hole courses). Ever since 1982 it has been played across the road from Sawgrass Country Club, on the Stadium Course at the Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass which is frequently known as the TPC at Sawgrass; it is not scarce for TPC in this context to merge with The Players Championship Golf for the reason that they happen to have the same initials.
The Players Golf Championship features the leading prize fund of any tournament in golf i.e., $8 million 2004-06, $9 million in 2007, and is every now and then, it is recognized by certain sections of the North American media as the Fifth Major, but it does not have official major standing. The field usually embraces the top fifty golfers in the world rankings, but contrasting to the three majors which are take place in the U.S., it is not considered as an official event on the European Tour, which has the Deutsche Bank Players Championship of Europe, even though it is an inadequate corresponding. The winner receives a preset allotment of 40 points towards his Official World Golf Ranking, which is the most allotted in any episode away from the majors, in which winners earn 50 points. For assessment, the winners of the three individual World Golf Championships by and large attain between 35 and 39 points. The winner of The Players Championship Golf also receives a 5 year exception on the PGA Tour, a 3 year invitation to The Masters, a 3 year exception for the British Open, and an exception to the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship for that year.
The Players Championship Golf can be promoted illustrious from the Majors in that it is under the possession and administration of the PGA Tour. Quite the opposite, the U.S. Open is under the possession and administration of the USGA, the British Open by the R&A, the PGA Championship by the PGA of America, in preference to the PGA Tour, and The Masters by the Augusta National Golf Club.
The Players Championship Golf is well-renowned for what may be the single most identifiable par 3 in professional golf, the Stadium Course's 17th hole, known to golf fans universally as the Island Green and what has become TPC Sawgrass' signature hole.
The Players Championship Golf had been played in late March for most of its life, but in 2007 it was again re-timed to occur in mid-May, as element of a restructuring of the PGA Tour. This restructuring also engages the preamble of the beneficial FedEx Cup, which terminates with a prior Tour Championship, currently played six weeks earlier in mid-September. This makes it a possibility to the PGA Tour to have a marquee event in six consecutive months, including, The Masters in April, the U.S. Open in June, the British Open in July and the PGA Championship in August. What's more is that between the 2006 and 2007 events the course has undergone major reconstruction, attaining positive reviews from the players throughout the 2007 event.
It's fascinating to note down that of the four majors in professional golf, the PGA Tour owns precisely none of them. The US Open belongs to the USGA; The Open Championship to the R&A; the Masters to Augusta National; and the PGA Championship to the PGA ? a completely distinct entity from the PGA Tour.
That's why seemingly why the Tour started the Tournament Players Championship in 1974?and perhaps that is the reason they have spent so much time and money in promoting it as the Fifth Major.
The winning prize for the Players Golf Championship is $8 million in 2007, making it the most affluent and opulent regular event. The tournament also counts for as much as the traditional four Majors in the FedEx Cup points standings. It is worth 40 points in the World Golf Rankings, only ten less than the big four.
The winner of the tournament receives a five year exception on the PGA Tour, a three year invitation to the Masters, a three year exception to the Open Championship, and same year invitations to the US Open and PGA.
Accordingly, the ?Players' draws one of the strongest fields in golf, bringing in all but a few of the top ranked players. It questionably has a stronger field than any of the other majors, for there are no amateurs or club professionals invited; every player there is a professional tournament player.
The opening Players Championship was held in 1974 at the Atlanta Country Club and was won by Jack Nicklaus. Later then, it was relocated to the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth in 1975, and afterwards to the Inverrary Country Club in Ft. Lauderdale in 1976.
In 1977, The Players Championship Golf found somewhat a permanent home in Ponte Verda Beach, Florida. Until 1982, it was held here at the Sawgrass Contry Club's Oceanside Course, when it again suffered the fate of relocating across the road to the Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass.
The TPC at Sawgrass has given the Players a uniqueness in character for the reason that course possesses what is perhaps the most famous hole in golf?the island green par 3 seventeenth.
