The TPC Sawgrass (especially in its unsaturated state) is more about placement than length. Experience may serve these wise men well in the coming days. Says Thomas Bonk of the L.A. Times: They love to talk about the "Young Guns," the twentysomethings, "Generation Next," the new talent on the PGA Tour, so it should be to the surprise of no one that right there in the mix on the first day of the Players Championship are a couple of guys who should probably start checking their mailbox for their AARP cards.
