Jason Day has converted each of his last four 54-hole leads, so it would appear there isn't much hope for the rest of the field as the Australian goes for his seventh win in 17 events. Day is the extremely heavy favorite to go wire to wire for the win, but there are some interesting names behind him.

Let's look at the odds after 54 holes to win the 2016 Players Championship (according to Bovada).


Jason Day: 2-7


Hideki Matsuyama: 7-1


Francesco Molinari: 28-1
Alex Cejka: 28-1
Ken Duke: 30-1
Retief Goosen: 60-1
Kevin Chappell: 60-1
Jonas Blixt: 70-1
Rory McIlroy: 100-1

I can't give you anybody beyond that and feel good about it. I really shouldn't give you anybody beyond Matsuyama and Day and feel good about it. One of those guys is going to win the golf tournament, so I suppose I would throw something down on Matsuyama and pray Day hits it in the water like 16 times on the front nine.

Rory is kind of fun at 100-1, but he realistically has no shot at nine back. The largest deficit overcome in the final round at this tournament is six by Raymond Floyd in 1981.

Jason Day is hitting golf shots this week at Sawgrass. USATSI
