Shannon Barnes, an employee of Sanders Golf, digs out a section of the TPC Southwind driving range as the course prepares to expand for next year's FedEx St. Jude Invitational. The area is the future home of a new Zoysia grass tee deck that will be used once a year for the World Golf Championships. Previously, the tee deck had consisted of Bermuda grass. (Houston Cofield/Daily Memphian)
