PGA TOUR Destination:
The PLAYERS Championship at
TPC Sawgrass

PLAYERS Championship TPC SawgrassThe PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra, Florida, is the home of the PGA TOUR and an unforgettable event. Labeled the "fifth major," TPC Sawgrass is borderline impossible in some spots and provides players and fans with plenty of drama.  The last three holes are very exciting and are never predictable.  Playing these holes under pressure is more terrifying than it is fun for the simple fact that the wind can ruin or make the round at any time.

An example of these tough conditions is in 2005, when I finished tied for 8th, by far my best at The PLAYERS Championship.  On the famous par three 17th the wind was swirling about 20 to 25 miles per hour when we approached the tee.

Golf Provides a Chance to Learn about Behavioral Patterns
By: J.L. Lewis, PGA TOUR Golfer

Games are a great way to learn our tendencies and behavioral patterns. The game of golf is a perfect example of this. The challenges of the golf swing and the golf course can evoke all kinds of emotions. Remember a past round of golf or take a third party look at yourself the next time you play. Does a good shot elicit excitement, positive momentum and confidence?
Golf Green Tip of the Month

Green Tip Although golf courses can have a detrimental impact to the natural environment, there are ways in which they benefit nature as well. Some examples are: enhancing  the value of property, generating jobs, providing charitable support, providing space for recreational activities, providing a good habitat for local wildlife, and providing plenty of oxygen and help to clean the air of surrounding pollutants.
