Jack Nicklaus Won The First Players Championship In 1974

Jack Nicklaus Won The First Players Championship In 1974

“The Players” Championship has been around since 1974. It sports the biggest purse of any PGA (or any other global golf association) event. In 2015, $10 million will be parceled out amongst up to 75 finishers.

Last year, even second-place Jim Furyk made over $1 million (winner Martin Kaymer won $1.8 million).

Money is one thing, but there is a another reason The Players is known as the unofficial fifth major: the field – the top 50 golfers in the world per the current rankings headline the tournament.

In it’s 40 years (not including 2015), only six golfers have won the trophy more than once, with Jack Nicklaus at the top hoisting it thrice.
