ON THE GREEN
You can really get hosed on the bounce around the green. There are so many intricate little bounces and slopes around that green, just like all the others at Sawgrass, that if you get involved with trying to steer your ball once it lands, you've already lost the battle.
In May the prevailing wind blows more often. When we played there in March, the wind was more governed by fronts coming through, and you could have any kind of wind. But in May you pretty much get hot, southerly or westerly winds, generally right to left, a little down, maybe a little in. There are all kinds of scenarios. Right-to-left breeze, you kind of want to fade it against the wind and hold it for a softer landing, but that's a risky shot too, to curve it toward the water. Probably the easiest wind is left to right because you can hit it left of the green and hopefully the wind will push it back.
