Changes are coming to the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass after this year's PLAYERS Championship. 

Following the 2016 edition of the season's so-called "Fifth Major", the course known for its famous island green will close for six months as several major changes will be made to the course. The most naotable of those changes will be a complete re-design of the par 4 12th hole.
