Preceding the 2008 Masters, we posed the question: Have You Played Augusta National? Dozens of emails came back, each telling a unique story of a special round 'or more' at hallowed Augusta. In the spirit of THE PLAYERS, we're re-opening the topic, but this time focusing on legendary TPC Sawgrass.
With roughly 40,000 rounds played annually at THE PLAYERS Stadium Course, theres no debating its one of the most sought-after courses anywhere.
And with 120,000 balls going ker-plunk each year into the vast water hazard on 17, there are certainly more stories of failure than success. (For those of you keeping score at home, thats an average of three per player, just on 17. Ouch!)
Success or failure, were interested to hear your story. And be reminded that it doesnt have to be one from the famed 17th!
The only rule is that it must be fewer than 500 words. The most compelling essays will be published to the Courses & Travel section on GolfChannel.com.
