TPC Sawgrass 17th in sunnier days
Golfers couldn't sink the 17th, but Tropical Storm Debbie finally did what people have wanted to do for decades—she nearly sunk it.
According to PGA Tour agronomists: “From Sunday (6/24) at 3 p.m., when the rain started, through 9 a.m. Monday, the property has received 7 inches of rain.”
And that was just the Sunday and Monday morning rain. With another day of showers and deluges, there may not be a green left!
