WATCH: Rickie Fowler hits unbelievable ace on one of most iconic holes in golf

The island green is one of the most daunting holes in golf.

With TPC Sawgrass is starting on Thursday and all the big guns are out.

Rory McIlroy is back from his honeymoon, Dustin Johnson has shaken off his back injury he sustained before The Masters and world number one Jason Day is out looking to become the first defending champion.

The 'unofficial fifth major' is one of the most exciting events on the golf calendar and one man hoping to win the tournament will be 2015 champion, Rickie Fowler.

Fowler is also returning after a booze-filled trip to a private resort in the Bahamas but showed no sign of rust on Wednesday in a practice round on TPC Sawgrass' signature 17th hole.

Fowler was playing alongside best friend Justin Thomas, who accompanied Rickie to the Bahamas alongside fellow PGA Tour players Jordan Speith and Smylie Kaufman, and he was seething with rage after Fowler outdid his efforts on the Island hole.

Fowler will tee off alongside Jason Day and 2016 British Open winner Henrik Stenson in one of the marquee groups while Justin Thomas will play with Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson.
