If it’s your first time attending or watching, you may be wondering, “What is The Players
The Players Championship is an annual tournament owned by the PGA Tour. It’s one of the
highest-regarded tournaments in the sport, though technically, it’s not considered to be a
traditional ‘major’ on the tour.
When many people think of The Players Championship, one of the first things that comes to
mind is the TPC Sawgrass 17th hole. For those who are unfamiliar, the 17th hole is known as
the “Island Green,” due to its intimidating placement in a lake. The hole is a wide green that
narrows on the right side and is a short-length par 3. Spectators love watching their favorite
players tackle this hole, which is as challenging as it is beautiful.
Imperial Gear for The Players Championship 2023
To get ready for this spectacular affair, one must dress accordingly – preferably with The Players
Championship hats and t-shirts. There’s nothing better than donning your favorite golf caps and
repping with t-shirts. Luckily, Imperial knows a thing or two about golf gear, and we have plenty
of options for you to choose from before tee-off.
When it comes to tour gear, like The Players Championship t-shirt or hat, you can check out
your options in the merchandise tent, also known as the Fan Shop, at the tournament. These

Celebrate the Sunny TPC Sawgrass 17th Hole
Anyone going to The Players Championship is anxiously waiting to watch competitors at the
17th hole, also known as the “Island Green” hole. Embrace the sunny-weather theme with some
Imperial icons and island-vibe patches that fit that tropical, sun-soaked experience. The
Performance Rope Cap is an excellent option, providing a blank slate to have some creative fun
in the sun.

for you that are perfect for a tropical vacation look in our Vacation Time collection. There’s
bound to be an option that speaks to you and will be perfect whether you’re sitting at the 17th
hole or heading to the beach.
Show Your Florida Pride
If you’re a local or just love visiting the Sunshine State, design a hat with a little bit of Florida on
it with icons that are available in the Tailgate Collection. Show everyone in Ponte Vedra that you
love the state you’re in with an outline of Florida embroidered on the face.
Another option for showing off some state pride? Put Florida’s state flower – orange blossoms,
from the State Flowers Collection – on a customized golf hat. If you’re really looking for
something that will keep your head cool, consider putting it on a mesh back hat or a Tour Visor®.
Customize Cool Hats With Flamingos
Maybe this will be the year you see a flamingo in Florida! Especially if you spend some time in
the Everglades during your trip, make sure you’re dressed appropriately for seeing these pink
birds in a customized golf hat with the popular golfing flamingo from the Imperial Mascots
Collection. These embroidered designs really stand out from the crowd.
One idea if you want to go for a tropical island look in recognition of the TPC Sawgrass 17th
hole is to put a flamingo on one of our floral printed hats for the ultimate vacay golf hat look. The
Performance Ponytail Hat comes in a variety of colorful floral prints that would look great with
the addition of a flamingo icon.
Embrace Your Love for Golf
Our Structured Performance Hat is a great option for those who want flexibility and style when it
comes to their ball caps. And what better way to represent your love for the game than by
adding a unique golf-inspired patch to the front?
Let your imagination guide you when designing your personalized golf hat – Imperial has a
number of creative patch designs that playfully give a nod to the game in a way that’s cheeky,
silly and fun.
Look great and have fun doing it with a crafty design made specifically for you.
