Playing the 17th Hole at the Players Championship

One of the most dramatic holes in golf is the 17th hole at the TPC Sawgrass. This hole always provides an abundance of entertainment at the Players Championship and I expect that it will again this year. Not matter how you slice it, hitting the green at the proper spot is critical to staying in play. It has been the bane of some golfers and the highlights of others.

The 17th hole is considered a pivotal hole. It has the potential of deciding the winner of this weeks tournament. As we watch the play unfold, I predict that Tommy Fleetwood will play this hole 2 under par over the four days. This stellar play on the toughest hole at TPC Sawgrass will help him in to the winners circle.

  1. It’s funny how much difference it makes to have money on the line when playing a hole like that. There is one on a course about an hour from me that I’ve always looked forward to playing. It has some slightly differences, it’s 150 yards, your tee shot is off a small cliff, and you can safely go long though that will leave you a tough lie. But with nothing riding on the shot but your pride, it’s really easy.

      When the pressure is off we generally play better. It makes sense, but as a professional, they learn to deal with their emotions far better than most amateurs. Thanks for an interesting perspective.

      Cheers Jim


  2. I’ll bet if you gave any player in the field even par for #17 over 4 days (which, on its own, says they make the cut) they would take it right now.
