The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass

Who will forget Tim Clarks win last year at The Players championship with -16 under par. Tim Clark ended his 204 tournaments of frustration and finally won on the PGA Tour. Clark played the final 26 holes without a bogey. He set a Stadium Course record with the largest 36-hole comeback. And with an 8-foot par putt on the final hole for a 5-under 67, he no longer had the distinction as the richest player without a PGA Tour victory. With our the best South African field ever let hope we can bring it home again.

The strongest field and the biggest purse in professional golf history.

I am very fortunate to be invited to go and assist the Agronomy team of Superintendents preparing and hosting the 2011 Players Championship being held at TPC Sawgrass in Jacksonville Florida USA. TPC Sawgrass redid all there greens 7 years ago and installed the same Mini Verde greens as we currently have. By going over there I will learn as much possible about this grass and come back with great knowledge and experience on how to prepare the greens for everyday play as well as tournament golf. I will be there on Sunday the 8th of May assisting the guys through the week and during the weekend in preparing the course for the tournament.

 Please follow me on this blog as i will keep it up to date on what is happening behind the scenes.
