There are plenty of Premier League footballers who consider themselves as being useful on the golf course, but how would they fare when tackling one of golf’s most iconic par-threes?

Ahead of the PGA Tour’s Players Championship, live on Sky Sports’ dedicated Players channel, several Premier League stars were asked how they thought they would get on playing TPC Sawgrass’ iconic 17th.

The 137-yard par-three has caused many of the world’s top golfers a variety of problems through the years, with players having to hit over water and deal with changing wind conditions to land their ball on the island green.
