Comments: Expert Picks for THE PLAYERS Championship

Widely respected as one of the most illustrious and historic sites for golf in the country, feared as one of the most challenging and difficult tracks on the PGA Tour, TPC Sawgrass resides in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida -- situated between Jacksonville and St. Augustine. It is consistently ranked among the top golf resorts in the world and provides the Tour with one of the best sites it will visit each and every season. Designed by the great Pete Dye, the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course is going to provide golfers with new and innovative challenges this season, having undergone an extensive restoration process begun in 2006. A new state-of-the-art drainage system was installed throughout the course to help encourage "firm and fast" conditions, both on the greens and fairways. Trees, including oak, pine, and palms, were planted throughout the course to add obstacle and demand strategic shot placement throughout the journey around the course. There are no definitive benefits to any particular strength at this course. Only a good all-around effort will prove victorious, as the list of recent winners – including Tiger Woods, Davis Love III, Adam Scott, Fred Funk, Stephen Ames, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson, and defending champ Tim Clark – indicates. Those golfers can go long, but they also put work in with the irons and putter, two of the more difficult tasks golfers will find at the TPC Sawgrass. The best golfers in the world descend on this course for a reason. Their overall skills separate them from the pack, and the true will be said at the end of this week.
