Re-Teed: The 2015 Players Championship

An off-the-railroad-ties retrospective on an instant classic in Ponte Vedra 

Light / Dark

Welcome to the next Re-Teed, TGJ’s look back at golf’s greatest tournaments. The first edition featured Tiger at the 2008 U.S. Open, and our latest dives deep into another famous finish: the 2015 Players Championship. While Rickie Fowler may have owned the island green, TGJ Editor Travis Hill, who has covered the tournament for nearly 20 years, and longtime PGA Tour executive Chris Reimer own all the behind-the-scenes stories. They look back at Fowler (momentarily) quieting the doubters, Sergio Garcia’s pants, a few missed putts that nearly changed history, and the legend of Jerry f&#^ing Kelly.

“You get to be there in some really crappy moments, like I had to help Sergio get to the media center after he lost in the playoff. You’re the first person a guy talks to after he just missed a putt to lose. But you’re also there for a couple hours of media with Rickie who just won the biggest tournament of his life.”
