OK, so this was a really fun weekend in golf, especially for January. I was actually captivated by the action on both tours and excited about them, despite football playoffs happening at the same time. I guess that’s mostly because the Seahawks have been eliminated, but that’s a different subject.

When I went to bed Saturday night, I was already pretty disappointed that I wasn’t going to get to see the final round of the Abu Dhabi Championship. When I woke up in the morning and checked the leaderboard, I was even more bummed that I had missed what sounded like a riveting finish with four of the top players in the world all in the mix (to some extent) Sunday. And I was actually kind of surprised (without seeing anyone hit a shot in that round) that it was Rickie Fowler who rose to the top in what I can only imagine as a mesmerizing display of golf to clinch the title. Fowler held off challenges from Thomas Pieters, Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson.

Tiger Woods y'all

Tiger Woods y’all

What a hell of a tournament! — whether it was Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods throwing handbags at each other or dunking balls in water hazards at crucial points on Sunday or someone missing and making a game-changing putt, there was no shortage of drama at TPC Sawgrass.

In the end, Woods captured his 78th PGA Tour victory, only four shy of Sam Snead’s all-time record of 82, and his second Players Championship title, not to mention his fourth win of the year, marking the earliest he’s achieved that feat in any season.

Gay has his eye on the prize…

I probably shouldn’t admit what I’m about to say, but it’ll give you an idea of just how glamorous my life on tour is. On Saturday evening at dinner a few friends and I were chatting about golf (what else? /eyeroll) and we were guessing what 54-hole leader Scott Stallings had to shoot or the other guys that we thought had a shot at catching him.

See, thing is, a five-shot lead at the Palmer Private isn’t much of a lead. There were tons of guys who were in range to catch him– with some help from Stallings — because you have to assume at least one or two guys will shoot a 62 and/or 63. One friend said, “Four-under. Scott needs to shoot four-under to guarantee a victory.” I agreed.
