2024 THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass: Power Rankings

The unofficial fifth major is upon us as the PGA Tour heads to TPC Sawgrass for the 50th playing of THE PLAYERS Championship.

Last year, the Stadium Course was conquered by Scottie Scheffler, who just so happens to be on a winning streak again after capturing the Arnold Palmer Invitational last weekend.

Power Rankings: Top 5 Players at Sawgrass

5. Wyndham Clark FedEx Cup: 2nd | Wins (2024): 1 | Top 10s (2024): 2

The reigning US Open champ captured his 3rd PGA Tour title this year in emphatic style at the 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, shooting a course-record 60 during the final round. (Wyndham Clark: WITB 2024)

4. Justin Thomas FedEx Cup: 21st | Wins (2024): 0 | Top 10s (2024): 2

The 15-time PGA Tour winner captured THE PLAYERS back in 2021 so is very comfortable around this course. Apart from one missed cut at The Genesis, he hasn't finished outside the top 12 in 2024. (Justin Thomas: WITB 2024)

3. Will Zalatoris FedEx Cup: 10th | Wins (2024): 0 | Top 10s (2024): 2

After being sidelined for nine months in 2023 due to a back injury, Zalatoris has been in fine form so far in 2024. Two top 10s, including a runner-up finish at The Genesis and a T4 at Bay Hill last week have him trending in the right direction. (Will Zalatoris: WITB 2024)

2. Shane Lowry FedEx Cup: 30th | Wins (2024): 0 | Top 10s (2024): 2

Won the DP World Tour's flagship event at the 2022 BMW Championship at Wentworth. Hasn't finished outside top 4 in his last two starts on the PGA Tour this season. Absolutely one to watch this week. (Shane Lowry: WITB 2024)

1. Scottie Scheffler FedEx Cup: 1st | Wins (2024): 1 | Top 10s (2024): 5

The defending champ is coming off his first win of the season at Bay Hill last week. Won in emphatic style with a five-shot victory. The world number one is the man to beat this week. (Scottie Scheffler: WITB 2024)
