Is Sawgrass' 17th the most riveting in golf?

3/20/2006 - Golf

The Germans call it "schadenfreude." Though there is no literal English translation, it roughly means "pleasure taken from someone else's misfortune."

It is the closest description for the giddy glee most gallery members will feel when watching tee shots at the 17th hole on TPC-Sawgrass' Stadium Course plummet from the sky and drop into the water that surrounds the peninsula green.

We can guarantee there will be plenty of attentive fans around the course's most famous hole come Thursday. But is it the most riveting in professional golf? Ron Sirak and Bob Harig debate that question in this week's edition of Alternate Shot.
