The world No 1 returns to TPC Sawgrass looking to replicate last year's one-shot victory, the first of four wins for McIlroy in a 2019 that saw him end the campaign as FedExCup champion.

McIlroy is back as part of a star-studded field in Florida for golf's unofficial "fifth major", where Sky Sports' dedicated Players channel will offer more than 50 hours of live coverage throughout the week.

Brooks Koepka, Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas will all be looking to close the gap on McIlroy in the battle to be world No 1, with former Sawgrass champions Jason Day and Rickie Fowler also in action.

The Players Championship Live

Tiger Woods' back problem means he will not be present to attempt a record-breaking 83rd PGA Tour title.

The PGA Tour's flagship event is home to one of golf's most iconic par-threes, with the 17th hole and its island green producing creating countless memorable moments in the tournament's history.

Sky Sports will show eight hours of live build-up and preview content on the Tuesday and Wednesday ahead of the event, before bumper coverage throughout all four tournament days and a host of extra feeds available via the red button.
