The Players Championship is the biggest tournament in the world without the label of being a major.  Once again, we have a star studded leader board going into the weekend.  This tournament is really shaping up to have a great finish.  It has a major championship type leader board with Sergio Garcia currently in the lead.  Tiger Woods is just one shot off the pace and Rory is lurking just a few shots back as well, just to name a few.  The TPC at Sawgrass has been playing fairly easy this year and yielding low numbers to the field. These low scores are the only thing that holds this tournament back from having the ultimate "Major" feel to it, but I suspect that it will toughen up a bit through the weekend.  Players have to successfully navigate the infamous island green on 17 and tough 18th hole to finish as a champion.  Under this kind of pressure, there isn't a lead big enough to feel comfortable but it sure makes for great television.  This begs the question, should The Players Championship be the fifth major championship?  With this difficult of a last few closing holes and a field that has every top player year in and out, shouldn't it be a major?  The players regard it as such, so why not the PGA Tour?  Will Sergio win and still be regarded one of the best to never have won a major, or will Tiger win and it go as just another one of his 77 PGA Tour victories? This will not count in the chase of Jack's major championship record but shouldn't it?  The winner has to beat all of the best in the world at a venue that would give them nightmare about finishing, sounds like some major qualifications to me.  When I look at a list of the past victors and see all big names, it makes me lean toward it being the fifth major, but what do you think?
