Player Quotes on TPC Sawgrass
DUSTIN JOHNSON: I think the golf course is great. It’s in the best shape I’ve ever seen it. The greens are perfect, fairways are perfect. You know, the few changes they made I thought are really good. You know, 12 obviously is a lot different, but I like the fact that it gives you more options than before…Now you’ve got some options. You can think about if you want to go for it or if you want to lay it up, so I thought that’s really good changes.

It’s one of my favorite Pete Dye golf courses.”

MARC LEISHMAN: “The course is in awesome shape. It doesn’t get a whole lot better than this to be honest. The fairways are just absolutely perfect, and the greens are running at a really nice speed. We’re pretty spoiled the courses we play on all year, but this is probably a step above that.
