Business picked up on the PGA Tour this week with the league's best players battling it out at TPC Sawgrass for the 2024 Players Championship. Following a signature event that put the PGA Tour back on track after a slow start to the season, its most notable hosted tournament enters the weekend just a month before major season begins with the 2024 Masters.

Scottie Scheffler, who won last week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and stands as the reigning Players champion, appropriately entered in the favorite, and while he's been battling through a nagging neck injury, somehow remains in contention as one of six players most likely to upend 54-hole leader Xander Schauffele.

Schauffele is seeking the most significant victory of his young career (as well as his first victory in two years). The 30-year-old has been in numerous close-but-no-cigar situations at major championships over the last few years, and beyond the $4.5 million winner's share from the $25 million purse, he has an opportunity to stick his flag in the ground as a legitimate contender on the PGA Tour.

Wyndham Clark, the 54-hole leader and reigning U.S. Open champion, sits one back of Schauffele after an up-and-down third round. He remains the most likely to surpass Schauffele, but it will likely require quite an effort Sunday as the final pairing should battle down the stretch.

Other than Jon Rahm and 2022 champion Cameron Smith, who both defected from the league, most notably missing from the field this week is Tiger Woods. It came as a bit of a surprise when Woods did not commit to The Players, particularly given its the final year for which he is automatically eligible. Tiger claimed he wanted to play once a month in 2024, and after withdrawing from the Genesis Invitational for what was described as an illness (not an injury-related reason), it was thought he would suit up in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Instead, it looks like Woods may play just 1.5 competitive rounds this year before traveling to Augusta National for the Masters.

While attending The Players is a dream for many, simply being able to watch the event live from home or the office is an incredible treat each year, and we here at CBS Sports are thrilled to bring you wall-to-wall coverage Sunday.
