TripNerd returns to the most iconic hole in golf, #17 at The Players Championship
The iconic Par 3 #17 at TPC Sawgrass, according to Nerd’s opinion, this is one of golf’s most iconic holes including among the 12 best Par 3 holes on the planet. Early on, the event was known as the Tournament Players Championship, 1974 – 1987. During this time period the event was hosted by Atlanta Country Club, Colonial Country Club, Inverrary Country Club and Sawgrass Country Club.
We now know the event as The Players Championship, some even consider it the 5th Major in the golf season. TPC Sawgrass (Stadium Course) has hosted the event since 1982. The property features 2 very iconic finishing holes, #17 and #18. #17 is a Par 3 that plays anywhere from 120 – 155 yards and #18 from the grand stands. Off of the tee going left will result in a wet landing, so you must have a great tee shot to have success on this hole.
The benefits of winning not only include a great prize purse but also other incentives. The winner receives a five-year exemption on the PGA Tour, three-year exemptions for the U.S. Open and The Open Championship. They also receive a three-year invitation to the Masters and an exemption to the next three PGA Championship tournaments starting in 2019. The winner will also receive 600 points towards the FedEx Cup Race, if they’re a PGA professional.
