THE Players Championship 2024 will begin Thursday morning with the opening round at TPC Sawgrass in Florida. Here's what you need to know to watch the first round on TV or online, including full TV coverage of The Players Championship.

First round preview

Since last summer, Scottie Scheffler reigned at the top of the official world golf rankings, even though he did not win a single tournament during this period. That all changed last week, when Scheffler bombed the field to a victory in a signature event at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Scheffler now returns to TPC Sawgrass, where he also hoisted the trophy last year, looking for another victory and his eighth career PGA Tour victory.

To capture it, he will have to surpass the best on the PGA Tour, notably Rory McIlroy, Victor Hovland, Xander Schauffele, Jordan Spieth and more. And it all starts with the first round on Thursday.
