The 17th at TPC Sawgrass is famous for its island green. The only problem? It’s not really an island. That baby is connected to the mainland with a land bridge, which sounds an awful lot like a peninsula to me.
But what many people don’t know (or notice) is that there actually is an island in the lake by No. 17. It sits at the center of the water, home to several well-maintained flowerbeds and at least one camera stand. The island is about 35 yards to the right of the actual green, which means it’s hardly in play. But what if it was? What if your nervous tee shot on this iconic hole wandered all the way over to the true island? What would you do then?
