Jeff Klauk Comfortable at Sawgrass Stadium Course


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Jeff Klauk will tee it up for the first time at The Players Championship, but you can hardly call him a rookie at the TPC at Sawgrass Stadium Course.
Klauk estimates he has played about 1,000 rounds on the course. He was 10 the first time he played it.
He's the son of Fred Klauk, who retired last year after 22 years as superintendent at the TPC at Sawgrass.
'I think Jeff feels very comfortable out here,' Fred said.
Jeff didn't just play the course growing up. He worked it as part of the maintenance crew. It wasn't his idea. At 18, after getting a $350 speeding ticket for going 57 mph in a 30 mph zone going through Hilton Head, S.C., Jeff took a job under his father to work off the fine.
