Betting props offered on TPC Sawgrass' 17th hole

RSS

It's one of the most recognizable holes in golf, and it's taking center stage this week.

The par-3 17th on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass might not be more than a pitching wedge for many players in the field at this week's Players Championship, but it's still a shot that will test the nerves of each participant. It's also one that will draw plenty of fan attention, as some root for great shots while others hope to witness the carnage of another errant approach finding the water.
