Hole In One International is officially counting down to The Players Championship which begins tomorrow, May 10th and continues on until the 13th. The Championship will feature a $9,500,000 purse — $1,710,000 of which is the winning share. This year, the featured charities will consist of Wolfson’s Children Hospital, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), National MS Society and the 26.2 with Donna Foundation.
The Players Championship offers the highest prize fund of any golf tournament and is sometimes even referred to as the “Fifth Major,” despite the fact that it does not have official major status.
Last year’s winner, K.J. Choi of South Korea, finished the Championship with a score of 275. $200,000 of his earnings were donated towards tornado relief.
