The iconic par-three 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass has proved a tough test again this year. Here’s a selection of card-wrecking moments

After an entertaining week at the Players Championship, we want you to vote for your favourite moment from the tournament at TPC Sawgrass.
A number of the world’s top players struggled at golf’s ‘fifth major’, where 21-year-old Si Woo Kim became the event’s youngest-ever winner with a three-stroke victory.
The Korean was described as playing like a “seasoned veteran” by Sky Sports’ Paul McGinley as he posted a bogey-free final round at TPC Sawgrass, to claim his second PGA Title in convincing fashion.

Ian Poulter delivered his best worldwide finish since 2014, producing a stunning recovery from the trees on his final hole for a closing bogey to share second with Louis Oosthuizen.
The par-three 17th once again saw plenty of drama over the course of the week, with Sergio Garcia becoming the eighth player in the tournament’s history to post a hole-in-one on the island green.

Rickie Fowler also posted an ace on the hole, although the 2015 champion nailed his tee shot in a practice round earlier in the week.
69 balls were lost in the hazard at the signature hole this week, the second-highest tally since records began in 2003, although Kyle Stanley had no problems there as he birdied it in every round.

Rafa Cabrera Bello lit up the final round with a historic albatross and special celebration on the par-five 16th, while the highlight of Dustin Johnson’s week was a hole-out birdie after finding the water at the second.
