Photo of the day: TPC Sawgrass' 17th is truly an island

The 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass is easily one of the most famous golf holes in the world and one of the most nerve-raking, but what would happen if you were forced to swim out to the green if you hit it?

That's the case this Tuesday, as Tropical Storm Debby has dumped more than 6 inches of rain on the gem of Florida causing the island hole to be just that, an island.

The photo, courtesy of Tony Agolini (@tonyagolini), shows the 17th hole nearly covered in water, and as one of the bookers on the phone at TPC Sawgrass said, "it's really an island today."

So enjoy TPC Sawgrass meets Coeur d'Alene at least for one day, because the only thing that would make that hole any tougher is if they made the green about half the size.
