Every Wednesday of Players Championship week, the caddies get to take their crack at the famous par-3 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass.

This year’s winner of the annual Caddie Competition, which benefits the Bruce Edwards Foundation (Edwards was the longtime caddie of Tom Watson, who died in 2004 after a battle with ALS), was Danny Sahl, caddie for Vijay Singh.

Sahl hit an incredible shot to 4 feet, 3 inches.

Those five caddies were the only ones who came within 10 feet of the cup.

In total, 82 caddies hit a tee shot on 17… 31 one of those ended up in the water.
