Jordan Spieth was a narrow winner over Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm in a poll in local, national and international media when asked to predict the winner of The Players Championship.

Spieth, who contended in The Players in 2014 before missing the cut in his last two starts at the Stadium Course, was picked by six media members. Johnson, the world's No. 1-ranked player, and Jon Rahn, a second-year pro from Spain who won his first PGA Tour event earlier this season, received five votes.
