The 2018 Players Championship begins with the biggest names in golf coming off wins and high finishes galore, surging the buzz around the year's fifth major. Tiger Woods is in the conversation again, as are Justin Thomas, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Jason Day, Sergio Garcia, Bubba Watson and many more top players.
The Players Championship TV schedule is something a lot of golf fans know by heart. It's predictable for a reason, and Golf Channel and NBC air four days of live golf action from TPC Sawgrass which begins on Thursday with the first round. Golf Channel has TV coverage of Thursday's first round and Friday's second round, with NBC airing coverage of Saturday's third round and Sunday's final round.
All of this coverage can be streamed online using the Golf Channel app, GolfChannel.com, PGA Tour Live and the NBC Sports app. However, if you prefer to watch the 2018 Players Championship on good, ole-fashioned TV, here are the 2018 Players Championship TV times and schedule.
