For most people, you were probably watching football, but the games ended in time so that you could’ve caught the finishing holes of the Sony Open! In case you didn’t, we did our best to watch for you (and stayed awake for most of it). Spoiler: You didn’t miss that much — well, the 18th hole was intriguing, but up until then, I thought the most interesting thing was eventual champion Fabian Gomez using the bathroom three times in 11 holes, per Golf Channel’s Jerry Foltz.

Pardon the delay in posting about the main storylines and happenings from Wednesday at Waialae CC. I had a nice chat with Adam Scott, Kevin Na, Jimmy Walker, Tony Finau, among others this afternoon. I had to do some other stuff late this afternoon, so I didn’t get a chance to write my behind-the-scenes column for Wednesday yet. I am heading back to Seattle first thing tomorrow morning, so the plane will be a perfect place for me to write. What did we do when all planes didn’t have WiFi??? It really wasn’t even that long ago! So, I apologize for the delay, but stay tuned for some fun tidbits from Wednesday.

This tournament used to mark the unofficial “first day of school” on the PGA Tour when it kicked off the new season, but with the advent of the wraparound schedule, it’s just a new year. However, it was a bit more exciting to meet the rookies after Q-school and the veterans who had to deal with the harrowing experience to get their cards back. (Weird to think that there have been two sort of major changes since I started covering the Tour regularly in 2011.)
