Final Round at TPC Sawgrass is Gonna Be Hot


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Day break here on the First Coast and it’s a familiar feel – hot, humid and sunny. And don’t expect any relief for the players for today’s final round at TPC Sawgrass.
After relatively easy opening rounds on Thursday and Friday (72.08 stroke average on Day 1 and 72.37 on Day 2) things got tight on Saturday (73.614). “They can make us shoot almost whatever they want us to,” Ben Crane said on Saturday.
A glance at the final round pin positions and it seems officials are looking for less birdies and more grinding with 11 pins cut four paces from the edge and two (Nos. 4 and 9) cut just three paces from the edge.
