Pete Dye designed the renowned Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, which hosts the signature event in the US PGA Tour, the Players Championship. The site was less than impressive, a chunk of marshland that had been acquired in the Seventies by Deane Beman, who was then the PGA's commissioner, for $1. Dye's original layout was so challenging that he later returned to introduce some changes that toned things down a bit. The Stadium now boasts some of the finest par 5 holes in existence, each distinct, but all potential score-busters. But the real star here is the 17th, probably the best-known hole in the game, and the second in a trio of finishing holes so difficult that the stretch has become known as golf's Bermuda Triangle. TPC Sawgrass belongs in the same class as the classic four majors—The Masters, US PGA and the American and British Opens.

This is without a doubt the best golf course that I have ever played on. Sadly we had to start on the 10th tee but this didn't put me off my game. The course was in excellent condition and the clubhouse was lovely. A great day out not to be missed.

I'm excited to be back at TPC Sawgrass in March for the Players Championship. I always loved the way this golf course is presented with a "greener look" at this time of the year. The course plays different compared to May, as you can get some cool days and a northerly breeze blowing, which can make the course very demanding. The fairways play wider in March because of the softer conditions, but the rough is thicker, therefore if you're off line from the tee, you can get into a lot of trouble. The course becomes target golf, requiring you to be more precise and to me the course was designed to be played this way. Indeed, targets are there to be hit and if you do, you get rewarded. In this respect, TPC Sawgrass is similar to Augusta National. If you find the target, you can work the ball to the hole using the contours of the green, whereas if you miss the correct section, you can end up finding it hard to two-putt for your par or birdie.
