One, sergio probably did choke, but its the 17th green at sawgrass, and he looked to be in between clubs, and tried to hit a wedge hard, and didn't hit it solid twice. If he clubbed up, and hit easy, you worry about catching it and hitting it to long, so the harder wedge was probably a better shot, it just didn't pan out.
As to handing the win to Tiger, people forget that there was a rookie who had a chance to tie Tiger going into the last hole. Also, Sergio wasn't a forgone winner in that event, it wasn't like he was in the lead. He also was putting terrible that day, i knew he was in trouble when he was struggling on the front nine. But to say he handed it to tiger is BS. Tiger made some very clutch Birdies down the stretch to win the tournament.

That par three green looks difficult to me. Landing on the green is just half the job
The green is a nasty piece of work. Though a lot of players put the ball in the water, that green isn't that imposing of a shot from the tee box. As one who played there before, i thought it would be scarier of a shot, but the green doesn't look small. It plays smaller, because of the railroad ties, but visually, its not really as scary as i thought. The shot that is scary is the tee shot on number 18. Stand back were the Pro's hit at, and it just looks like you can't hit the fairway. I think Tiger's drive on that hole was the best shot he hit all day. He actually hit a draw perfect down the center. The hole in your mind just screams at you, "RIGHT!!!!"
