Back Nine of Christmas: Day 8

17th Hole at TPC Sawgrass

Though its conception was something of an accident, the “Island Green” at TPC Sawgrass has come to be the famed course’s signature hole. Lacking any kind of fairway, the green is the only option. While only 137 yards away, the surrounding water makes birdies and double bogies equally likely.

The rest of the course lives up to the hype as well, with super fast greens that challenge even the world’s top golfers.
