The 2000 Players Championship was a golf tournament on the PGA Tour, held March 23–27 at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, southeast of Jacksonville. It was the 27th Players Championship.


Hal Sutton, the champion seventeen years earlier in 1983, won his second Players, a stroke ahead of runner-up Tiger Woods. Both carded scores of 71 (−1) in the final round, and Sutton hit 17 of 18 greens in regulation. Because of thunderstorms and heavy rain, the final round was completed on Monday, March 27. In the last pairing, Sutton and Woods were on the twelfth hole when play was suspended on Sunday night.

Late in the third round on Saturday, Sutton had gone 25 holes without making a bogey. At the par-3 17th hole, he hit his tee shot in the water and took a triple-bogey six, which trimmed his lead over Woods to just one stroke.

Traditionally the richest event in golf, this was the first Players with a seven-figure winner's share, at $1.08 million. Sutton's win in 1983 was the first Players with a six-figure first prize.


This was the 19th Players Championship held at the TPC at Sawgrass Stadium Course; its setup in 2000 measured 7,093 yards (6,486 m).
