NBC will have nine high-definition cameras at the island-green 17th at The Players, including a microscopic lens embedded in the lip of the small bunker fronting the green. The “Supra Cam,” a cable-suspended camera system that flies over the lake between the 16th and 17th greens, will make a return engagement. One camera will be 150 feet in the air above the tree line showing unique shots of the 16th, 17th, and 18th holes. There will also be some dude with a camera marooned on the island in the middle of the lake for approximately eight hours during live coverage, capturing player reactions from this unique angle. If that's not enough, ProTracer will track the reverse flight of the tee shots from a unique angle behind the green (above) and a wind monitor will track the wind speeds on the tee box and high above hole. Imagine if CBS could do this at Augusta's 12th hole? Hopefully, CBS and Billy Payne are taking note.
TV Times: Thursday and Friday 1–7 pm on Golf Channel, Saturday and Sunday 2–7 pm on NBC. Golf Central Live will also air from The Players starting at 9 am each day (all times Eastern).
