5. Brian Harman (+6000)

Less than a year removed from his astonishing victory at last summer's Open Championship at Royal Liverpool, Harman has fallen back down the board into potential 'dark horse range' heading into this year's PLAYERS Championship.

It had been a bit of a slow start to 2024 for Harman prior to last week's result at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The 37-year-old had some nice results in Hawaii, finishing T5 at the season-opening Sentry and T18 at the Sony Open in Hawaii, before slowing down during the West Coast swing.

Last year's Claret Jug winner seemingly found something back in Florida last week, however, after picking up a T12 finish at Bay Hill. Now, Harman returns to TPC Sawgrass for the first time since his major championship breakthrough last July.

The three-time career winner has had mixed results at THE PLAYERS Championship over the years, but he does have two Top 10 finishes at TPC Sawgrass in two of his last four starts at this famous event.

Brian has excelled on Pete Dye designs throughout his career and you know that he enters the 50th PLAYERS Championship with the ability to emerge victorious should he find himself in that position; just as he spectacularly did last summer.
