HILTON HEAD ISLAND, South Carolina — Matt Kuchar saw his well-struck 5-iron on the 18th hole at the RBC Heritage come up way short of the target and settle in a front bunker.

"Well," he thought as he walked toward the shot, "there are a lot worse places to be."

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida — Craig Perks knows the drama that can be created in the final three holes at TPC Sawgrass’ PLAYERS Stadium Course. He needed just one putt over that stretch to collect his lone PGA TOUR victory.

“You have the risk-reward 16th, one of the most famous par-3s in all of golf and I think arguably the toughest finishing hole in championship golf,” Perks, the 2002 THE PLAYERS Championship winner, said. He chipped in for eagle at the par-5 16th, made a birdie on No. 17 and chipped in for par at the final hole to win by two shots over Stephen Ames.
