is this weekend at TPC Sawgrass. We're heading that way on Wednesday, hoping to get to play the course, and its infamous 17th hole, with the island green. If you don't play or watch golf, this may be the only hole you recognize. Golf channel did a piece on the 17th hole this morning. Brad Faxon said that Pete Dye, the designer of the course, is "the Stephen King" of golf course architecture.
