The 2024 The Players Championship will start Thursday, with the PGA Tour event at TPC Sawgrass' Players Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., welcoming 144 world-class players to the 12th event on the 2024 PGA Tour schedule.

The The Players Championship is the crown jewel event in Florida, with Sawgrass proving the ultimate democratic test of golf.

This tournament has produced generally strong names since moving from May back to March, but most of the best of the world are struggling in some way at the moment.

2024 The Players Championship betting picks and first looks

Justin Thomas has flown under the radar a little bit, but he keeps knocking at the door of playing well.

Will Zalatoris is playing some great golf at the moment, and he thrives against the tougher courses and fields.

Scottie Scheffler defending would be a first in the history of Sawgrass, so maybe we look at Max Homa instead.
