Golf is full of amazing highlight reel shots, and TPC Sawgrass is capable of being a home for these shots, despite the toughness of the course. Rafa Cabrera nailed one at the 16th hole.
The PLAYERS Championship is one of the best golf tournaments in the world for a reason. We’ve seen some of the greatest shots in the sport at the iconic TPC Sawgrass.
During the week, we first witnessed an ace on the legendary 17th hole from Masters champion Sergio Garica, and now, and albatross, executed by Rafa Cabrera at the famed 16th hole.
Chances for amazing shots like this is why TPC Sawgrass is one of the funnest golf courses on earth. Take a look at this incredible shot.

Although the 17th hole, Alice Dye’s Island of Wonders, gives you nightmares about water, the 16th hole makes you lick your chops. It’s an excellent hole design that’s perfect for the long hitters, and Cabrera took advantage with a pin seeking missle.

There was more than just golf balls flying at TPC Sawgrass! During The Players Championship, a player (Couldn’t really tell who) was about to take his shot when there appears to be a strange objoct flying overhead.
It looked like a UFO but it’s anyone’s guess. I am someone who does believe in things things like ghosts, aliens, etc but who knows.
Someone in the comments of the video suggested that it was a hat flying away from it’s rightful owner as if it was like “Hey man! I’m tired of your head!”.
Either way, I guess you can say TPC Sawwgrass is a hotbed for alien activity!
Here’s the video:
Knowing the great Pete Dye, he’d probably build a parking lot for UFOs at Sawgrass!
Who knows, maybe that UFO has a mural of the iconic 17th hole inside.

This year’s Players Championship was one of the best, if not, THE best that has ever been played. Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia and Kevin Kissner went into a playoff.
Garcia hit an incredible 44 foot putt to get into the playoff and Kissner was playing some amazing golf all day. Fowler pretty much made a mockery of “Florida’s Amen Corner” of 16, 17 and 18 to win it.
He had three birdies on TPC Sawgrass’ iconic 17th hole. Most golfers usually be lucky to come out of 17 with a freakin’ par.
This is why it’s such a famous hole. All of the heartbreak and torture it presented to some of the world’s greatest players over the years.
Time and time again, the 17th hole has swallowed golf balls in the water or have left golfers with long, tricky putts. Rickie just got through 17 like a straight up boss.
Here’s the jaw-dropping shot Slick Rick hit that sealed the deal for his second career PGA Tour title:
What’s so amazing about Rickie’s win is that not only did he demolish one of golf’s toughest courses, but he and Ian Poulter were voted as golf’s most “overrated players” according to a poll conducted by Sports Illustrated.
The voting was by anonymous peers on Tour. So, just a couple of days after that poll, Rickie goes on to win golf’s “5th major” and the signature tournament of the PGA Tour on its signature course.
The win also came a couple of days after golf course designing legend, Pete Dye was seen watching the tournament on his famed course. With that shadow over him, Rickie practically made a fool of Pete’s diabolical 16, 17 and 18, again finishing out by going back to 17 to win it.
There’s no better way to win a golf tournament than at the 17th hole of TPC Sawgrass, under the sunset and with thousands of fans surrounding you at every turn.
With this win, he’s proven why he’s still relevant on Tour and that he is indeed one of the bright young stars int he game.
The homie’s playing a game but he ain’t playin’ though!

As we know, one of golf’s greatest tournaments, The Players Championship is here and TPC Sawgrass is looking as beautiful as ever. There were some things that were not so beautiful at Sawgrass but I think we can all get a kick out of and say “That was me once!”.
Here are three things that happened at Sawgrass that probably won’t surprise you if you’ve ever been in these positions.
1. Tiger Woods, who overall played well during the first two days hit a gorgeous flop shot on hole nine on Friday which pretty much sealed his chances of making the cut. Well, earlier however was not so pleasant to former world number one as he hit a 172 yard drive on the first hole.
Here’s a little play-by-play chart of the shot courtesy of CBS Sports:
Also, here’s a tweet from the Golf Channel Tiger Tracker which includes comments from “Twitter comedians” and shocked Tiger fans:
Tiger in the straw…didn't reach the fairway and only about 30 yards in front of the ladies' tee. So, there's that.
— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) May 8, 2015
2. Robert Allenby, who at one point won two tournaments in back to back years (200 and 2001) is trying to get back to top form. He also made headlines a couple of months ago about an alleged kidnapping.
Now, the Aussie is back and ready to rip up Sawgrass!….that’s if he avoids raccoons of course.
During the Friday round, Allenby was settling in, getting ready to tee it off until a furry critter decided to show its face.
This is when Allanby freaked the heck out.
— SB Nation (@SBNation) May 8, 2015
Raccoons can be dangerous creatures and Allenby took notice right away. One of the things that make raccoons difficult to deal with is that they have similar characteristics like humans do.
For example, if they’re smart enough, they can open doors. They can also jump up and attack so the fear is real.
He freaked so bad though that he forgot he had a massive driver (whoopin’ stick) in his hand just in case.
3. Jonas Blixt who came close to winning The Masters last year, finishing in second behind winner Bubba Watson, decided that there’s a better way to clean his driver than simply wiping it with a towel. During the second round of The Players, the Swede somewhat casually tossed his driver into the famous pond on Sawgrass’ recognizable 18th hole.
Sadly, the Vine for the toss was apparently deleted so this picture courtesy of Next Impulse Sports will have to do:
He’s rich, it’s the 18th hole, so he just said “screw it!’ and tossed it. I’m sure he has a replacement set.
Jeez, and I thought golf balls were the only things getting lost on the 17th hole. Now we’re going to see clubs getting lost on 18.
This is probably what hole 17 is saying to hole 18: “18! Join the lost golf goods club!”.
Should be an exciting weekend at The Players!

Last week, we lost two important and iconic figures in golf. Pete Brown, who was the PGA Tour’s first African-American winner as well as one of the best players to come out of the United Golfers Association (Or some may call, the “Negro Leagues of Golf”) and Calvin Peete who was one of the most dominant players in the 1980’s.
Pete would have a terrific career, winning 14 times globally including his two PGA Tour victories. Both wins weren’t exactly walks in the park either.
He defeated Dan Sikes in 1964 at the Waco Turner Open for his first victory. Sikes would go on to win six times on Tour.
Pete’s second win was even tougher as he defeated Tony Jacklin in a playoff at the Andy Williams-San Diego Invitational (Now known as the Farmers Open) in 1970. Jacklin had won the Open Championship the previous year and would go on to win the U.S. Open the same year Pete defeated him in the San Diego Invitational.
Before his PGA Tour success, Pete had a solid career in the UGA winning the USG (Negro) National Open an incredible four times. He also won the Long Star Open four times.
Pete would go on to be a head teaching pro at the Madden Golf Course in Dayton, Ohio. He was the pro at the hilly course for 20 years.
Pete’s remarkable career brings us to Calvin Peete. Calvin was best known as one of the most accurate players in golf.
He was also famously known for his outstanding victory at the Players Championship in 1985. This is a wonderful time to celebrate Calvin as the Players Championship is upon us as you’re reading this.
Calvin was a self-taught player, much like some of the players you see today such as Jim Furyk and Bubba Watson. He developed his swing and learned how to use course management to his advantage on his way to victory.
Calvin would go on to have an amazing career on the PGA Tour after joining in 1975. It didn’t take him very long to adjust to the new level of golf on Tour.
He would win an impressive 14 times worldwide, 12 on the PGA Tour and twice on the Japan Golf Tour. 11 of his 12 Tour wins were all in 1980’s making him one of the most dominant players of a single decade.
Only Tom Watson and Tom Kite had more wins in the 80’s than Calvin. Watson and Kite are both in the World Golf Hall of Fame.
You ready for this? After Calvin’s first victory in 1979 in the Greater Milwaukee Open in which he won by a convincing five strokes defeating Victor Regalado, Jim Simons and Lee Trevino, he would go on to win a really impressive four times in 1982.
Calvin would once again win the Greater Milwaukee Open in that magical 1982 season, again defeating Regalado. He would then win the Anheuser-Busch Golf Classic by two strokes for second win of the season and his third of his career.
Calvin destroyed the field in his next two wins in 1982, starting with a win at the B.C. Open, defeating 1976 U.S. Open champion Jerry Pate by a whopping seven strokes. The next dominate performance came at the Pensacola Open where also won by seven strokes, defeating Dan Halldorson and Hal Sutton, completing his remarkable 1982 season.
His most dominant statistical season came in 1984. Although he only won one tournament that year (Texas Open), he would go on to win the prestigious Vardon Trophy and Byron Nelson award for having the lowest average score for the year.
Huge names in the sport of golf have won these awards. Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan, Lee Trevino, Sam Snead and Billy Casper are among those names.
1985 was arguably the season Calvin will be forever known for. He would win twice on Tour that year, getting a win at the Phoenix Open for his first winning by two shots.
The second win of that year came at the Tournament Players Championship, famously known today as simply The Players Championship. The win has made him a legend in golf’s “5th Major” and TPC Sawgrass alike.
Probably the highlight of his win was the incredible shot he hit on the world-famous 17th hole. He hit a beauty that landed softly on the green, leaving him with an easy putt. He would go on to win by three strokes, defeating Chicago native D.A. Weibring who ironically beat Calvin in the 1979 Ed McMahon-Jaycees Quad Cities Open (Now the John Deere Classic).
He also would lead the Tour in driving accuracy a jaw-dropping 10 years straight. This helped him make two Ryder Cup teams in 1983 at PGA National and 1985 at The Belfry.
In his rookie debut in the Ryder Cup, Calvin would help lift the U.S. to victory with his solid 2.5 point performance including a win in the always high pressured Singles matches. His second appearance at the Ryder Cup in 1985 wasn’t as good as his rookie debut but was still solid getting 2 points for team USA.
The U.S. squad unfortunately would lose to the European team by 5 points.
Arguably, the most accurate player in golf history who has a resume that speaks for itself, Calvin Peete very well could be one of the most under rated players of all-time.
He’s not in the World Golf Hall of Fame. Sure, some may say that he was a major title shy of the Hall.
But couldn’t The Players Championship be a major title? In my eyes personally, it is, and he should be in the hall of fame.
He defeated a field of legends at the Players and no other tournament not named the U.S. Open has a tougher field than the Players. Keep in mind the course he played on.
TPC Sawgrass is by far one of the most iconic golf courses on the planet. Like the Masters, The Players is played at the same course every year which is a unique for a major tournament.
Although it’s the same venue every year, players still seem to have a hard time at it, especially at “Florida’s Amen Corner” of holes 16, 17 and 18. Calvin used his incredible accuracy to beat one of the toughest fields in golf on one of the toughest courses in the world.
Now, if that isn’t major worthy to place him in the Hall of Fame, then I don’t know what is. If The Players Championship was a major, Calvin would have 12 PGA Tour wins including a major which to me is definitely enough for the Hall of Fame, not to mention his Ryder Cup appearances.
This makes us wonder, what if The Players was a major? Would he be in the Hall by now? Could he still get in anyway?
Most hall of famers do have at least one major so if The Players Championship were an official major, I’d say he’s in. Because practically destroying the 1980’s PGA Tour and having a major title under your belt is pretty darn convincing.
One thing’s for sure. We know that with the legacy he left at The Players and with the tournament going on as we speak, Calvin will be forever known as one of the greatest players to ever step foot on Pete Dye’s TPC Sawgrass.
Here’s a video of Calvin’s win at The Players and immediately you’ll see his impressive shot on Sawgrass’ iconic 17th hole:
The short par-3 couldn’t stand a chance.

One of the more interesting and newer debates in golf just to add to the long list of arguments has been “Who is the best American golfer right now?”. Now, we clearly already know who the best European player is and that would obviously be Rory Mcilroy.
But for at least the past year or two, the big question was always “Who’s the best American golfer?”. After winning two Masters tournaments in three years, there was talks of Bubba Watson being that guy to rep the “Red, White and Blue” but inconsistency hasn’t been too kind to the long hitter.
So how about the dude who just won the Masters? Is Jordan Spieth the best American golfer on Tour right now?
Now, some of you might say “DUH! Of course he is! He’s the number two ranked player in the world!” and that he is. However, it’s still fun to debate and I think consistency plays a big role in this argument.
Jordan has been very consistent the last couple of years and it’s great to see a young player like that grab his first major. That said, there have still been some others who have also been quite consistent as well, the only difference is that Jordan has a major now.
Matt Kuchar, Patrick Reed, Jimmy Walker and Dustin Johnson have played very well. Specifically Walker and Johnson who seem like they’re towards the top of the leaderboard each week.
J.B. Holmes has even come out and looked like his old self on the course which is always nice to see. He’s put together a nice season so far and is now in the top 12 in the World Golf Rankings.
With all this said, I still think Jordan is the best American golfer. He’s a unique one as well, using recovery and streaky putting skills to win tournaments.
He’s also an excellent closer. Like, he’s a guy I would have out there on the 18th hole to close things out if the Ryder Cup or President’s Cup allowed last-minute substitutions.
These are things that make great golfers what they are. If you can sink putts even under the heat of battle, close things out in the final few holes, and get yourself out of trouble in key moments, then you’re a truly great player.
It’s not always about bombing it off the tee and Jordan showed us this time and time again. He’s currently the best American golfer on Tour.
HOWEVER, this could change quickly if guys like Jimmy Walker or Dustin Johnson win a major this year. The Players Championship, as amazing as a tournament it is and as terrific a course TPC Sawgrass is, doesn’t really count.
If guys like Jimmy or DJ win at Sawgrass, then I still think Jordan would be the best American. But those two guys specifically are the closest ones right now to being as good or topping Jordan.
And I’m someone who really thinks The Players Championship should be a major.
Bubba, as nice of a Masters run he’s had, still just isn’t up to par with the likes of Jordan, Jimmy or DJ, at least THIS year. As good as Patrick Reed has been playing, I’d still take Jimmy and DJ over him any day of the week and that’s not a knock on Patrick, it’s just that Jimmy and DJ are just that good.
Sure, Jimmy was quiet in the Masters but you’d be surprised how things can change once the next majors come around. You’ll look at the leaderboard for the U.S. Open and be like “Huh? I don’t remember seeing him at the Masters!”.
Plus, Jimmy seems like he enjoys playing on links courses and the U.S. Open as you know will be at the beautiful Chambers Bay (Yes, there is a tree on it called “Lone Fir”, yes, so much “FIR”!). DJ also plays well on these types of courses it seems, like he did at Whistling Straits in the 2010 PGA Championship.
He ultimately got disqualified however after the infamous “lies rule” controversy where he hit a shot that he wasn’t supposed to hit. With the PGA Championship back at Whistling Straits yet again, he will definitely look to get revenge on the Pete Dye designed layout.
So the best American conversation can really change in a hurry if guys like a Dustin Johnson, or a Jimmy Walker, or a Patrick Reed, or a Bubba Watson win either one of the next three majors this year. The chances of that? Extremely high, especially how well these guys have played.
Bubba just needs to be more consistent and put emotions aside. If he does that, he’s one of the most dangerous players in the world, and one of the most exciting.
Now, if Jordan wins another major this year, then the title of “Best American Golfer” will remain his for at least a couple more years. Not only that, he’ll be a threat to Rory’s top spot if he does so which can lead to some unbelievable golf down the road.
So, at the moment, Jordan Spieth is the “Golf King of America” but it will be so exciting to see how he and the others do at tournaments like The Players, U.S. Open, etc.
Here are the current top five American golfers according to the Official World Golf Rankings:
1. Jordan Spieth
2. Bubba Watson
3. Dustin Johnson
4. Jim Furyk
5. Jimmy Walker
Oh, and just for good measure, there are 12 Americans in the top 20. That’s over 50% of the top 20.
Sorry Tiger, Phil and Ernie fans but if you don’t love seeing what’s going on in golf right now, then I’ll give you the phone number to the nearest doctor’s office. The golf doctor would like to have a talk with you!

Martin Kaymer won The Players Championship on Sunday and he had moments of comfort when he was at one point leading by four strokes to moments of a nerve-wracking tight leaderboard. However, on one of the most, if not the most iconic hole in all of golf, Martin nailed a putt for the ages at The Players showing his clutch. Check out the video below.
Martin has only two wins on the PGA Tour but both of them were very significant as his first victory came in 2010 at the PGA Championship and now at The Players which is widely regarded as golf’s “fifth major”. Martin has 11 wins on the European Tour and two huge wins on PGA Tour giving him hall of fame caliber numbers. Although he’s been quiet the last few years, Martin Kaymer and the putt he nailed on 17 is a reminder of why he’s still one of the most dangerous players in all of golf.

Dang man, this is some NBA Street stuff right here! Justin Leanord DESTROYS the first hole at The Players Championship and the PGA Tour officials had to come out to fix the hole. Man, Justin just performed a gamebreaker at The Players! Please watch and enjoy! Thanks to PGA.com for sharing!
See, now if only Justin and some of other golfers could perform gamebreakers (With awesome music) like these in NBA Street Vol.2 but in golf form! It would really be awesome in a Ryder Cup, President’s Cup, Solheim Cup or Walker Cup since these are team gamebreakers! Use your imagination!
Have Bubba Watson dishing the golf ball with his club to Jimmy Walker (Two USA leaders in points) and have Jimmy nail a heat seeking golf ball that hits the hole and BOOM! Double eagle! There’s a video game idea for you! Nice shot Justin!

The last couple of weeks has been pretty hectic since Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia went at it at The Players Championship, and to be fair, golf is not the sport for players to whine and moan at each other. They make plenty of money traveling the world and playing on beautiful courses for a living, similar to all of the beefs with rappers like when Nas and Jay-z used to go at it and I happen to be a fan of both, it’s like shut up and tear up the mic. Same thing with the golfers, shut up and swing, the tradition of golf is that it’s supposed to be a “gentleman’s game” well you didn’t see that with these guys and same applies with other golfers like Vijay Singh and Rory Sabbatini who always seem to be jerks. Of course, Sergio’s latest stupid thing is the mention of fried chicken when asked if he would invite Tiger to dinner, and of course he’s going to say “We would have fried chicken”. That comment he made was offense to me because I’m half black so it definitely made me angry, and I know it offended others as well. I love how some people just assume all of us black and half black people just eat fried chicken. So do white people, so do Spaniards, so does everybody else, chicken is delicious food that we all love to eat and is a great topping on many other foods as well.
Like in burritos, on pizzas, in Chinese food, chicken is just a great kind of food and it great, fried, baked or grilled. So Sergio just needs to shut his mouth and worry about getting his first major championship BUT hold on here, I’m not letting Tiger off the hook either. Tiger made me angry also because this is at least the fourth or fifth time he has had something racial thrown at him and he hasn’t stood up to it. I had people tell me that t’s a good thing that he’s staying quiet but I’m not saying he should yell at Sergio and call him names, I just think he should “politely” stand up for his people.
You are arguably the most powerful African-American figure in the world, when someone throws racial slurs at you, STAND UP, don’t just let it slide because that’s a disgrace to your people. I honestly don’t think he appreciates his culture and where he came from. Example, in the forward of the book “Uneven Fairways” (Excellent book by the way, very well written), which is a book about African-Americans in the history of the game of golf, Tiger never mentioned ONE single thing about his black side. That whole forward he never brought up the side that helped him get into the game in the first place. The side where many of his ancestors died for him. I mentioned this same thing on my radio show on sportstownchicago.com. I just don’t think he appreciates his culture and that’s terrible considering how powerful of a figure he is in the black community and he doesn’t want to stand up. Again, don’t yell at Sergio and call him names, just stand up and say you don’t appreciate it is all.
I would say the same exact thing if it was the opposite. Example, I love both my Polish and African-American side. If he always mentioned his black side but never his Asian side then I would say that he doesn’t appreciate his Asian side and that would be a problem also so I’m not just defending the one race. I’m defending those who aren’t getting appreciated, like some blacks that aren’t appreciated due to Tiger’s lack of supporting his people. The more he stays quiet, the more racial comments he shall receive. He may still receive them but AT LEAST he stood up and gave African-Americans something to clap for. This goes beyond the game of golf. Tiger needs to realize how powerful he really is and that he can inspire many young black kids all around the world and standing for who he is would be a big step and I think a lot of people would appreciate it. On that note, to all of the children around the world, never EVER forget who you are and where you came from, no matter how successful you become. Don’t change for NOBODY, not even the president of the United States of America. Be yourself, stay true, love who you are, and nothing will stop you because God made you who you are because you’re very special and he will have a plan for you if you appreciate yourself and set goals for your life.

Each year, fans all over the world come together to watch the Players Championship and it never fails to excite. The beautiful pete Dye designed golf course, the Florida breeze, the tough competition, they all blend in together to make one of the most exciting and popular tournaments of the year but the one question that people ask, “Is the Players a fifth major?” all comes to mind. I personally believe it is because the tradition of it that makes it special. In a way, it has similarities to the Masters because each tournament is played at the same course each year which is the legendary TPC Sawgrass and it’s palayed down south like the Masters and both feature the biggest names in golf. The only thing that’s different is the fact that the Players doesn’t have a trophy that is as recognizable to the world as the Green Jacket at the Masters. The astonishing thing about TPC Sawgrass is how quickly it became a successful course.
It has only been around for about 35 years while some courses have been around for almost 100 years and the way Sawgrass gained popularity at such a fast rate is what’s incredible and now look, people are considering it the fifth major and the 17th hole is considered the most famous hole in the world, at least the most famous par 3 in the world. Many legends have came to play at Sawgrass as well and that’s why it’s one of the most legendary courses in all of golf. It’s hard not to argue that it is the fifth major. This again goes back to the “tradition of the game”. Well guess what, all four majors didn’t become majors in the same year so what does that tell you? The tradition is constantly changing so people need to stop bringing up “tradition” because the game never started with the British Open, U.S. Open, PGA Championship and The Masters so the tradition changed a long time ago so I see no reason why The Players Championship shouldn’t be a major, if anything it will make the game more exciting and that gives more exciting major championship golf to look forward to each year and as we know, nothing makes the game more exciting than the drama of major championship golf.
Plus, I think Pete Dye, a man who has helped change the game with all of his game changing courses deserves to have a major championship on arguably who most popular masterpiece. The players really get into the tournament and the setting is perfect, it feels like you’re in a coliseum watching golfers preparing to duke it out with thousands of fans watching their every swing. The course is beautiful and challenging and is unique from anything else in golf. Plus, it can easily boost up TV ratings because with it being a major, even more fans will watch and they’re already getting good numbers right now so making it a major just makes it that much sweeter and it gives the writers a bit more to write about. If The Players Championship became a major then everybody who appreciates this wonderful game will be very happy.
