Google Glass - No Hole Like the 17th at TPC Sawgrass

The signature hole at TPC Sawgrass is the Stadium Course's 17th, known universally as the "Island Green"
The signature hole at TPC Sawgrass is the Stadium Course's 17th, known universally as the "Island Green", although it is technically a peninsula.

It measures only 132 yards from tee to green (requiring only a pitching wedge for most pros), but it consists of nothing but a 78-foot long green with a tiny bunker in front of it. With the exception of a small path to the green, the green is completely surrounded by water, and its location amidst many trees causes the wind to swirl over it.

Club selection in the weather conditions at the hole is a huge consideration, as there is nowhere to land the ball but on the green or in the water.

It is estimated that more than 100,000 balls are retrieved from the surrounding water every year, courtesy of professionals and tourists alike.
