The 17th at TPC Sawgrass: Golf's Scariest Hole?

Last year's Championship was won by Rickie Fowler who played the last six holes in six-under-par to get into a play-off with Sergio Garcia and Kevin Kisner.

Fowler won on the second-extra sudden death hole over Kisner with a stunning birdie on the par-3 17th.

Here are the past champions of this century, including Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson:
