Dustin Johnson leads odds to win THE PLAYERS Championship in 2021

The PGA Tour shut down after one round of THE PLAYERS Championship in 2020, but is back on the road to the 2021 Masters.

Tour Junkies After Dark: The Players Championship

A year ago, the PGA Tour shut down amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Following the first round of THE PLAYERS Championship, the Tour halted play and postponed the season until a June restart. A year later, we’re back at TPC Sawgrass for arguably the most prestigious non-major tournament on the calendar.

Dustin Johnson is the favorite to win at DraftKings Sportsbook, installed at +1200. Bryson DeChambeau and Jon Rahm are next at +1500, followed by Rory McIlory at +1600, and Xander Schauffele and Justin Thomas at +2000.

While DeChambeau has the most Tour wins this season, Johnson is on a roll. He only has one win toward FedExCup points, but he has three tournament wins since the 2020-2021 season got underway. He won the 2020 Masters that was rescheduled for November, then claimed the Sentry Tournament of Champions in January, and followed with a European Tour win in early February at the Saudi International. He then finished second at The Genesis Invitational and fourth at the WGC-Workday Championship.

A year ago, Hideki Matsuyama finished the first round of THE PLAYERS Championship with a two stroke lead at -9. Harris English, Christiaan Bezuidenhout, and Si Woo Kim followed him at -7 for the round. That leaves 2019 champion Rory McIlroy as the reigning defending champ at TPC Sawgrass.
