Quick 9: Memorable moments at Sawgrass’ 17th

There have been plenty of memorable moments on the 17th at TPC Sawgrass down the years. NCG picks out some of the best in Quick 9...
 

The 17th at TPC Sawgrass. A phrase that resonates with every golfer.

The par-3 17th at TPC Sawgrass has become one of the most iconic holes in golf, mainly thanks to Pete Dye’s wife, Alice, whose idea it was to build a green in the middle of a swamp.

There have been many memorable moments from the Players Championship and many of those have come at the famous Sawgrass 17th hole.

Here are some of our favourites…

9. Fred Couples, 1999

It had been an opening round to forget for Couples. He stood on the 17th tee five-over par and looking to salvage what was left of his round.

It didn’t start well, his tee shot falling short and into the water. The coolest man in golf then holed his next for arguably the best par in Players history.

Couples went on to finish T4 in the tournament and cited the miracle hole-in-three as his inspiration to go on and make the cut.
