Photo Gallery | 2012 PGA Players Championship: Classic Golf. THESE GUYS ARE GOOD!

by: S.V. Goodyear

Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect.  It is at the same time rewarding and maddening - and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented. - Arnold Palmer

No one will ever have golf under his thumb.  No round ever will be so good it could not have been better. Perhaps this is why golf is the greatest of games.  You are not playing a human adversary; you are playing a game.  You are playing old man par. - Bobby Jones

I never prayed that I would make a putt. I prayed that I would react well if I missed. - Chi Chi Rodriguez

These famous quotes epitomize the game of golf.  

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are known as the Practice Rounds at the PGA Players Championship.  This is a time for professional players to enjoy golf, but at the same time learn every minute detail of the course.  For  a caddy, these three days could determine the caddy's true value.  Each caddy is required to keep copious mental notes as well as written notations of the idiosyncrasies of the course.  During game play, the caddy is expected to remember these details to provide his personal pro that much needed overall advantage.

The first three days are Practice Rounds for play.  The results of Thursday's play is for position.  Only the top 100 players are allowed to compete to Sunday's finish.  And Sunday's play is for the money!  Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday have to be the most fun at the PGA Players Championship at Sawgrass.  If you have never seen a professional golf tournament in person, be sure to get there this week.   

Be sure to drink plenty of water before you head out, and arrive early to experience the cooler mornings.  Always take sunscreen.  This year, the tournament will allow you to take a SILENCED cellular phone inside the grounds.  If possible, take advantage of the shade of a tree.  The First Aid tents are supplied with sunscreen and water.  Have fun!
