STEVE Lowery made a birdie – of sorts – at the 17th hole in 1998 when his tee shot, which had landed on the green, was picked up by a curious seagull and dropped into the lake. The American was allowed to replace his ball (a new one) on the green under Rule 18-1 without a penalty. JERRY Pate spoke to the media in 1982 prior to the inaugural Players Championship held at the Stadium Course, stating he would jump into the lake at the 18th hole if he won the tournament. And, true to his word, Pate won, gathered former commissioner Deane Beman and course architect Pete Dye, and belly-flopped into the water. IN 1999, Fred Couples made the most incredible par at the famous par-3 17th hole after hitting his first tee shot into the water and acing his second. The hole-in-one slam dunked the hole at the spectacular island green and helped ensure Boom Boom made the cut into the weekend. CRAIG Perks won the 2002 Players Championship with an unbelievable final stretch of holes, requiring just one putt for the last three holes. It was the Kiwi’s first and only win on the PGA Tour. Tiger Woods was full of praise for Perks, telling him he was “absolutely unbelievable”. WATCH IT HERE WATCH IT HERE WATCH IT HERE WATCH IT HERE 10 9 87
