2021 Players Championship odds: Surprising PGA picks, predictions from model that called six golf majors

It'll be one of the most loaded fields of the year when the 2021 Players Championship tees off Thursday from TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra, Fla. World No.

Rory McIlroy won the Players Championship in 2019, making him the defending champion since this event was cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

SportsLine's prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been on fire since the return of the PGA Tour last June.

He's been explosive off the tee, but has struggled on the greens at times, entering this tournament ranked 65th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: putting.

Also, the model is targeting four other golfers with odds of 22-1 or higher to make a strong run at the title, including a monster long shot.
