Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose were an unbeatable duo on day one of The Ryder Cup. In the morning fourball, they crushed Watson and Simpson 5&4. In the afternoon foursomes, they were AS through 14, and continued their dominance with a 2&1 victory over Mahan and Johnson.

Spieth teeing off no. 1

Spieth teeing off no. 1

I was headed to the practice area late Wednesday morning  at East Lake to chat with players and look for a good story on the eve of the Tour Championship. Well, sometimes the most fun ones are the kind you just happen to stumble upon. In other words, you’re at the right place at the right time.

That’s what happened today. I stopped to talk with Ryan Palmer’s caddie James Edmondson, who was waiting for his player on the first tee. As Palmer was teeing off, Rickie Fowler strolled up, then Jimmy Walker and Jordan Spieth.

As always, some of you asked where you could watch my work for the Open Championship. The only real answer to that is if you live in Asia, I’m on the preview (or post-round) show on Fox Sports, and I also make regular appearances on Fox Sports Central. Since I know most of my reader base is North America and UK-based, you obviously can’t watch.

I’ve picked several features and interviews from the week at Royal Liverpool covering the Open — which was, as always, a complete blast. First, let’s check out the local area…

Shaky start for Tiger
Tiger Woods kicked off his second PGA Tour start of the year on Thursday – his first since the Farmers Insurance Open a month ago when he missed the secondary cut. His game in the first round of the Honda Classic didn’t exactly conjure up much more confidence that his form was taking a turn for the better.

The opening hole at Dove Mountain
Hello, everyone! Welcome to Dove Mountain, the home of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. I was hoping to host a WUP Bracket Challenge here, but as you may recall, I’ve mentioned that WUP is getting a face lift (aka a redesign), and as it happens, it’s been delayed, so there’s been a change of plans.

Walker celebrates with Hawaii pageant princesses
Jimmy Walker went 0-for-187 in his first seven years on the PGA Tour, but on Sunday at Waialae Country Club, he snagged his second win in six starts in the new 2013-14 wraparound season (making him 2-for-193). Amidst a packed leaderboard at the Sony Open, Walker finally started to separate himself from the field coming down the stretch, carding birdies in four of the last six holes to post a final-round seven-under 63, 17-under total.

Kirk eyes his third victory Kirk eyes his third victory[/caption]

Despite struggling with his driver off the tee, Chris Kirk shot a five-under 65 to take a one-shot lead over fellow University of Georgia alumnus Harris English and PGA Tour rookie Will Wilcox heading into the final round of the Sony Open.

Kirk made the most out of his round on Saturday at Waialae Country Club, which included a nine-footer for birdie on no. 18 to narrowly separate him from the clustered leaderboard. There are 26 players within five shots of the lead.

Bro hug!

Bro hug!

Zach Johnson put on a short-game clinic at Kapalua’s Plantation Course to capture his third victory in four months on Monday at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Similar to what we saw at last month’s World Challenge, where he took down Tiger Woods in a playoff, Johnson’s precision with his wedges helped him on his way to a final-round, seven-under 66.

Zach attack

Zach Johnson fired a seven-under 66 to get to -13 at the halfway mark, taking a three-shot lead over Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar and Jordan Spieth. Most intriguing part of Zach’s somewhat “boring” round? He didn’t make birdie on any of the par-5s!
