TPC Sawgrass Players Stadium Course course breakdown

Now that we know the layout of the golf course, what else makes TPC Sawgrass Players Stadium Course a challenge?

Well, everything. There are few comfortable tee shots, and players are asked to work the ball both ways comfortably to find the best spots.

The greens are not particularly tricky, but they have clear sections which players have to find for the best scoring opportunities.

The final three-hole stretch has to be played in 11 shots or fewer, and that can be in any combination, to finish the job.
