I definitely didn’t think I’d regret not staying up past my curfew last night to watch the Presidents Cup. I certainly didn’t think I’d miss anything but the standard U.S. routing or maybe the Internationals attempting a tepid comeback. I really didn’t think I’d  be saying what I’m about to say, especially since any little interest I had in the Presidents Cup completely disappeared after the only thing I considered that could be slightly intriguing did not happen — which was obviously Jordan Spieth and Jason Day, the worlds nos. 1 and 2, respectively, facing off in what would naturally be an intense battle filled with lots of thumbs-up and fist-pumps for Sunday singles.

Well, to be honest, I doubt I would been awake to watch, anyway, since I was playing in a tourney at NGLA this weekend (yes, very important with at least a few hundred in pro shop credit on the line) and had an early-ish tee time. #sorrynotsorry

In case you can’t remember that the PGA Championship is a major, the PGA of America’s new slogan — as of last year — will remind you…constantly…with signage all around Whistling Straits.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since we were last here in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, for the 2010 PGA, which was perhaps the most compelling major of that season, with various names making moves on the back nine and then of course the heartbreaking finish and bunker-not-a-bunker fiasco that kept Dustin Johnson out of a playoff for the Wanamaker Trophy. (It’s even crazier when I realize that it was only the third major I’d ever covered.)

If we have anything close to as much drama as we did in 2010, we’re in for a treat this week. Let’s just hope we don’t have any major rules blunders on the 72nd hole of the tournament and we’ll be quite alright.
