Many people are disagreeing with Bubba Watson’s decision to forgo the long drive competition on the 10th hole at the PGA Championship. Watson hit a 3-iron, and said in the pre-tournament press conference, “There’s no reason to make something up in the middle of the practice round like that. That’s just me. Like it or not, that’s just who I am. That’s just what I think.”

With the exception of any withdrawals prior to the first round, it would be the first time any major championship would feature each of the top 100 world-ranked golfers.

What are the players saying at the 143rd Open Championship? Many have talked about putting a 2-iron in their bag to fight the windy conditions, and how the course is playing compared to the ’06 Open at Hoylake. On Thursday, we will see which course strategy works the best, but for now, it’s all about the quotes.

Bubba Watson is playing Pinehurst No. 2 for the first time, and he plans on hitting a lot of fairways, “I think it’s funny, me and my caddie or maybe more me, but you can’t define where the fairways are, so I guess this week I can hit a lot of fairways because we can’t define if it’s on the fairway or not. So that’s pretty good for me.”

Where to begin? It was a rollercoaster of a Sunday, with a tightly packed leaderboard of big-name contenders — including Masters champions Bubba Watson and Adam Scott — that shined before crashing and falling out of the mix as they came down the stretch. In the end, it was the 22-year-old star from Japan, Hideki Matsuyama, who upstaged everyone and beat Kevin Na in the first extra hole in the sudden death playoff.

Shockign: Tiger wins a lot when he's in contention

Shocking: Tiger wins a lot when he’s in contention

If you’ve been watching the PGA Tour for the past month, then you’ve seen a great deal of Matt Kuchar. If you are like me (and you should be thankful you’re not), you were sitting there pondering to yourself, “Man, this guy sure seems to get into contention a lot, but doesn’t seem to win that much.” Again, if you are me, you then set out to see how often players on the PGA Tour really convert good finishes into wins (this is probably when you should start pointing and laughing and being glad you’re not like me).

Hey, guys! Miss me? Sorry I’ve been MIA. It felt really weird not being able to write during the Masters last week, but I literally had no time after working 14-hour (-plus) days as an on-air reporter for Fox Sports International. Which was an incredible experience and one that I’ve pretty much dreamt of since I started this site five years ago — it was like seeing the culmination of all the hard work I’ve put in (but, of course, I still have a long ways to go!).

Baby Walrus FTW!
Kevin Stadler clinched his first win on the PGA Tour at the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Sunday. Stadler missed his 15-footer for birdie, but only had a tap-in for par and secured the victory when Bubba Watson, who had overshot the green on his approach into the 18th, missed a four-footer to save par.
