THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass is one of the hardest of the year when it comes to golf betting.
Since there’s water on 17 of the 18 holes and high scores can be made in a hurry, players can drop multiple spots on the leaderboard very quickly. The volatile nature of the event makes it hard to predict.

CARLSBAD, Calif. (March 5, 2023) – Kurt Kitayama held off a crowded leaderboard at the Arnold Palmer Invitational to secure his first career PGA TOUR victory with Stealth 2 Plus Driver and TP5x golf ball in the bag. Kitayama used his P·7MC iron, TP5x golf ball and Spider X Hydro Blast putter to make birdie on the 71st hole of the tournament to take the outright lead.
On the 18th hole, Kitayama found the center of the green via his P·7MB 8-iron from 189-yards out in the left rough leaving 47-feet and hit his birdie putt with TP5x to the edge of the cup before tapping in for par to secure the victory.
Kitayama spent time with the TaylorMade Tour team during practice rounds to dial in spin rates and yardages on his fairway woods, while also switching from before a Stealth 2 10.5° driver to Stealth 2 Plus 10.5° producing more consistent spin rates in testing.
