Now in its 42nd year, THE PLAYERS Championship remains the premiere Northeast Florida sporting event, drawing attention from global sports media. This year is no exception, with features like a Toby Keith performance and THE PLAYERS 5K with Donna (on May 7). Better still, international golfers compete for a $10,500,000 purse (!) as fans sweat in the heat and wonder if they have made the wrong career choices.


Tuesday, May 10-Sunday, May 15 (practice rounds May 10 and 11), TPC at Sawgrass, Ponte Vedra Beach, $20-$165; Tickets at pgatour.com/tournaments/the-players-championship/tickets.html.
