Rickie Fowler responded to his fellow golfers’ declaring him “most overrated” by beating out Sergio Garcia and Kevin Kisner in a Players Championship playoff on a Sunday that found him carding three separate birdies on the TPC Sawgrass 17th “Island Green”—a hole that averaged over par for the tournament.
Sergio Garcia birdied the famous 17th at TPC Sawgrass to bring him into a tie with Rickie Fowler for The Players championship:
Jonas Blixt is in last place at The Players, and now the Swede gets to complete his likely final nine holes of the tournament without a driver after throwing it into the water following a lousy drive at the 18th of TPC Sawgrass. That’s not going to improve your score, Jonas!
As part of ESPN's and U.S. Soccer's documentary series Inside: U.S. Soccer's March to Brazil, the team took a group trip to TPC Sawgrass and got to take a hack at the famed island 17 hole. It did not go well.
For over a week now, we've had to talk about this weak golf "feud" between Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods which started in 1999 and got heated, or at least slightly warm, a week and a half ago. Garcia hit a terrible shot on a par-5 second hole at The Players Championship, and blamed Woods for the miss, since Woods was…

Recall earlier this month, when Sergio Garcia rekindled some old animosity when he blamed Tiger Woods for his errant shot on the second hole of The Player's Championship, an accusation that elicited a someone-get-this-baby-a-bottle response from…
There's no shame in splashing short of TPC Sawgrass's iconic 17th, as Sergio Garcia did yesterday (twice!). Better players have found the drink in the past, and will in the future. But it's hard to beat Garcia's meltdown for pathos, because of history both ancient and recent.
We'd probably think it was unfair if Tiger was awesome at both golf and celebrating golf played well, but still, these celebrations are brutal.
Golf feuds are different than most sports-related feuds. Like everything else with golf, the feuds are a bit more genteel than, say, Jeff Van Gundy hanging off the leg of Alonzo Mourning.
The Players championship begins at TPC Sawgrass next week and this is what the iconic island green at 17 looked like on Friday after six inches of rain.
A fan was hit in the head after a Harris English drive off the tee at TPC Sawgrass this afternoon. On the fly. I don't know what the odds are, but I think we can all agree it's pretty impressive for English. And incredibly unlucky for the fan.
