Adam Scott has been the World No. 1 for a little over two months, and he has played excellent golf to hold on to the top spot. In his first event as No. 1, Scott defeated Jason Dufner in a playoff to win the Crowne Plaza Invitational. In addition, he finished in the top-10 at the U.S. Open (T9) and The Open Championship (T5).

Rickie Fowler posted his best career finish in a major with a T2 at the 2014 U.S. Open. He said his goal coming into the season was to contend in the major championships, and he is two-for-two if you include his T5 at the Masters. Fowler is now in his fifth season on the PGA Tour, and he is poised for a big year.

Woods turning to new horizons for his new tourney

Woods turning to new horizons for his new tourney

Tiger Woods is hosting an “amazing field” of 18 of the best players in the world — himself included — at the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge this week, where it will be held at Sherwood Country Club for the last time before it moves away from Woods’ native California to his adopted state of Florida next year.

Adam Scott celebrating in the Green Jacket

No question Tiger Woods has had spectacular year — he’s won five times this season, including two World Golf Championships, but once again, he came up short at the majors. I’ve been discussing this topic with several people recently (and I plan on asking other players the same question that Adam Scott addressed today), if Tiger or any other player would trade five regular wins for one major.

Day looking for a win in 2011

Jason Day has established himself as one of the game’s most talented rising stars (though he still continues to fly under the radar compared with some of his contemporaries). The 23-year-old Australian has notched seven top-tens, including two runner-ups at the Masters and the U.S. Open, along with breaking into the top ten in the world rankings (no. 8 currently).

There’s just one thing missing that would make a great season spectacular: A win.
