Visitors to Rockefeller Center will have the opportunity to take the most intimidating shot in golf at ‘The UBS Golf Challenge: Experience The Players Championship.’ The scaled replica of ‘The Players’ Stadium Course’s iconic island 17th hole will serve as the centerpiece to an interactive exhibit. The exhibit coincides with the actual tournament. The 1/4-scaled replica will allow fans to hit a shot to an island green surrounded by water. The exhibit will feature putting areas, as well as a full-swing net. Instructors from the new TOUR Academy, headquartered at TPC Sawgrass, will be on hand to provide tips.

What this means to you: Some of us will never get a chance to play TPC Sawgrass. Who’s to complain about getting a shot at the infamous 17th hole absolutely free? The only cost to you is the embarrassment of a shank into the water (or someone’s face).
