Played TPC Sawgrass stadium and valley courses this weekend with my daughters. What a great place !! Both courses were so much fun. We had a forecaddie for both days and they both where awesome.

Saturday we played the stadium course. Started out great par, par, bogey, par. I thought this is easy ... finished the front with a 45. Back 9 did not start good but I did birdie 13 and was so happy to hit 17 on the first shot and made a par. Shot 92 and was very happy.

Sunday we played the valley course. Started out with a triple on the first hole ... not fun. Then bogey, par, bogey and ... got on track with 3 birdies in a row ... now this is FUN. Finished with 41 on the front. Finished the back with 5 pars for total of 83.

Both my girls hit the island green and made par, I was so proud.

Life is good !!!

what are the rates for Sawgrass?

My brother and I went down and played 6/25 for $199. We got a reduced rate as some of the greens were a bit sandy from work they had done. Great experience. Our forecaddie gave lots of great stories from the Players and after our round got we got a tour of the clubhouse. I highly recommend a round there as their customer service is through the roof.

You guys should swing through Maryland and play my home course of Renditions. 18 championship holes from around the world, including TPC 17th, all for around $100 on weekends.

To the OP, great story, even better that it was shared with your daughters.

It has been about 2 years since we played TPC Sawgrass stadium course. We have been getting better so we decided to go play it again and see how we do.

We played Saturday April 7th and the conditions were very windy, some gusts to 25+. They were busy setting up the grand stands for tournament and the course was in great shape. Can't wait to watch the tournament in a few weeks.

We played much better, Kelsie won with 85, I shot 89 which was better than last time and Lynsie shot 93. We had the best time.

Highlights: we all hit on 17 and parred again, so much fun. I hit on 16 in 2 and had an eagle putt but missed and was happy with birdie. Hit the driver great all day, just very difficult greens.

So much fun playing golf with my girls !!

Life is Good !!

That short? Was that from the furthest back non championship tee, i.e. Blue tees?  I think the one episode of the Haney project where they had the chef Mario and his friend play the 17th hole, both of them used a 7i.  I'm sure they're not long hitters, but hard to believe they would be using a 7i for a 100 yard shot even if they suck.

Scorecard shows:

Green:    92

White:   115

Blue:     128

Yellow:  137

And I don't think the pros play it much further back then the standard back tee length.  I was suprised too when I first learned how short it was. I believe the wind plays a factor in making it more challenging. (In fact it might have been a headwind in the Haney project episode).

I was watching the replay of the final round of the 2000 Players Championship last night and the 17th hole was playing to 145 or so with Tiger hitting a PW (slightly short of the putting surface) and Hal Sutton hitting a 9i I believe.

I played there 3 weeks ago and it's in great shape but I hope you have an early tee time because it will be a LONG day if you don't.

    • Why does Rory struggle with consistency?
    • I would say it depends on how the 3W distance works with the length of the holes he is going to be playing. If there are par 4s around 430 for example I think he would be foolish not to carry a club that enabled him to get there in 2. Agree however that flexibility goes up drastically if not carrying putter and with the tournament several weeks away there is theoretically enough time to get comfortable with using a low lofted metalwood or bladed wedge. Really would be ideal to know the course to help strategize.
    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.
