    The 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass' THE PLAYERS Stadium Course is iconic because of its island green. It's the course's shortest hole, and one of its most dramatic. Players make plenty of birdies there, but also are one swing away from a round-ruining double-bogey or worse. Here's a closer look at how the famed 17th hole played at last year's THE PLAYERS Championship. Below are the hole's stats for last year's event, as well as the scatter diagram -- which shows where players hit their tee shots and their resulting scores -- and stats from each round.
