The Players Championship 2014 Live TV, Online Coverage, Odds

The Players 2014 Championship tees off Thursday, May 8 from Ponte Vedra Beach, FL as some of the World’s best golfers get ready to battle it out for this year’s title. It looks as though the 2013 Players champion and still fan favorite Tiger Woods will not be available to defend his title as he is still recovering from back surgery. Woods also missed the 2014 Masters due to an ailing back.

Even without Tiger, The Players championship should still be a must see for golf fans across the US and the entire world. Golf fans will be able to keep up with all of the live action on the TV side of things Thursday and Friday on the Golf Channel, while Saturday and Sunday’s action will be carried on the Golf Channel and CBS Sports. Online coverage will also be available for the golf fans on the go thanks to NBC Sports Extra and the Golf Channel online. 

Big names such as Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott, Matt Kuchar and Luke Donald will all be ready to take their shot at wining this year’s title, along with this year’s 2014 Masters champion Bubba Watson.

Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott come into the 2014 Players Tournament as the two top favorites, but don’t be surprised if Bubba Watson makes a run as well. Watson seems to fly under the golf radar for some reason, but the winner of two of the last three Masters Tournaments has the skills to pick up his second major win of the year.

The total purse for The Players Tournament is $10,000,000 with $1.8 million of it going to the winner. Not a bad pay check for four days work! The Players 2014 Championship officially gets underway Thursday morning at 7:15 a.m. when Bryce Molder and Lee Westwood are the first to tee off.

Below is a glance at the odds for the top 20 golfers in the upcoming Players Tournament. With well over 100 golfers scheduled to make a run at The Players title this year, if the winner comes from a different name than listed on the top 20 list you can bet someone will be cashing in a ticket worth a nice chunk of change!
