Sky Sports is dedicating an entire channel to The Players Championship golf tournament. Sky Sports The Players will launch on Monday, with behind-the-scenes features and documentaries. On Wednesday, a special preview show 'Live at The Players' will air.

The channel will offer 45 hours of live coverage.

The tournament is known as the unofficial fifth Major, and sees some of the top players in the world compete for the coveted trophy. Previous winners include Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia. It tees off on Tuesday.

Sky will launch its new Sky Zone studio on the range at the tournament, providing a unique insight into players' warm-ups, swing and practice techniques.

Sky Sports' team of pundits includes David Livingstone, Butch Harmon and Paul McGinley.

"Will Sergio kick-on from his Masters triumph, Dustin Johnson his sensational pre-injury form, or will the big three of Spieth, McIlroy and Day return to the winner's circle?" said Jason Wessely, Sky Sports head of golf.

"The Players has the look and feel of a Major, with the world's best taking on one of golf's most spectacular courses. We're incredibly excited to give the tournament the Sky Sports treatment, including a variety of new features to keep fans on top of the action."
