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.

Take advantage when they can and protect their score the rest of the time! Moving day at The Open will be great to watch! Continue reading
