was named one of the country's "Best 100 Golf Courses" by Golf Digest in 2011 and the "Best Course You Can Play in the State
of Florida" by Golfweek.
"It's great to finally get started up after the winter
break and the guys are really excited to play again," Texas A&M head coach
J.T. Higgins said. "I think it is pretty cool that we are starting our season
off at one of the best courses in the country: TPC at Sawgrass, home of The
Players' Championship. Anytime you get
to play a PGA Tour course, it gets the blood flowing a little and we tend to
play a little better on more demanding courses so we are looking forward to
