The title of this article should really reflect the fact that it is THE PLAYERS Championship, and not The Players Championship. But I don't know how to change that. I encourage someone more experienced than me to do so. -- AppleFan84 00:09, 26 April 2005

Winners list.[edit]

Should I change this winners list to standardize it with all of the other PGA TOUR events? (Though I doubt anyone reads this)-- DakPowers (Talk) 19:48, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

Change it to the format other majors use, ie with score, country, golf course played on (at least before the current course) excetera. Do it regardless of whether anyone is reading it as of now, but they will in the future!--Nick Dillinger 02:58, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
I meant, nobody's reading the talk page. :) I've been trying to standardize all PGA TOUR tournament pages, so with this suggestion I will make a template for Majors (pretty much how they are now), and keep the regular tournaments the same. Unless anyone else has any suggestions. :) DakPowers (Talk) 13:56, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
Can you treat the Player's Championship like a major? It really is the 5th most important event in golf, and any treatment that makes it seem significantly less than a major would look like systematic bias.--Nick Dillinger 15:44, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
I agree with you, it's just tough knowing where to draw that line. Should WGC events be the same way? THE TOUR Championship? I think I'll just leave it here. :) DakPowers (Talk) 01:43, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
aslong as the Players is treated like a major, I have no other problems treating the rest as regular tourny's.--Nick Dillinger 03:38, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

Move to The Players Championship, as we don't write article titles in all caps unless they are acronyms or initialisms. See for example PGA Tour, which is written as "PGA TOUR" by them PGA's marketing department, but as "PGA Tour" by the rest of the world. — sjorford++ 13:58, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Add *Support or *Oppose followed by an optional one-sentence explanation, then sign your opinion with ~~~~
  • Support as the ALL CAPS is intended for logo use only, not in real sentences.--Nick Dillinger 22:57, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Support - discussions appear to take place in conventional lower case. SilkTork 16:34, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose - The TOUR and the PLAYERS are written just as they are, as in any golf magazine or website. – DakPowers (Talk) 00:24, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose PGA TOUR and THE TOUR Championship article titles should be written in all caps too. We don't get to pick how the owner of the trademark chooses to render it; we should, however, honor their decision.
    • No we shouldn't. Find the section on trademarks in our Manual of Style. ed g2stalk 23:47, 28 July 2006 (UTC)


Add any additional comments


I just moved it, makes sense. -- Kim van der Linde at venus 20:10, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Need a Photo[edit]

Anyone have a photo of the 17th for the article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:07, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

2013 Championship[edit]

The 2013 Championship has now began and the page still links to 2013 as there is not yet an article for 2013. [1] (talk) 00:33, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

There is a separate article, now, about the 2013 tournament. -- John Broughton (♫♫) 00:06, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Date of the tournament[edit]

THe article says this:

With the rearrangement of 2007, the final round of The Players Championship is scheduled for the second Sunday of May, Mother's Day.

But this year, the final round of the tournament is scheduled for the third Sunday of May (a week after Mother's Day). The article should be updated to reflect this change. (talk) 15:16, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
