Welcome to the first full-field event of 2016 with the Sony Open at Waialae Country Club. 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.)

A defiant Robert Allenby met with the media on Tuesday morning at TPC Scottsdale, where he’ll play in the Waste Management Phoenix Open, an event perhaps more well known for its rowdy crowds and parties than for the golf. With many questions left unanswered, including reportedly a visit to a strip club, and contradicting accounts over his story about getting beaten, robbed and kidnapped in Honolulu, Allenby stood by his original tale, and then blamed the media for his ensuing travails and speculation (which was really not a good tatic).

Allenby’s busted face: Beaten or fallen?

Robert Allenby’s traumatic story of getting beaten, robbed and kidnapped after missing the cut at the Sony Open continues to get weirder — as in, the more reporters investigate, the more holes there are with his original story.

One thing’s for sure: Allenby was robbed of most his credit cards, about $800 in cash and his phone, according to GolfChannel.com’s Rex Hoggard

Robert Allenby

Robert Allenby’s story of getting beaten, robbed and kidnapped last week in Honolulu has taken several twists and turns since it was first reported during the Sony Open. Several witnesses have brought Allenby’s account into question and contradicted it with their own versions of the events that they saw unfold.

Robert Allenby says he was beaten, robbed and kidnapped before he was dumped in a park more than six miles from where he was taken in Honolulu on Friday night.

After missing the cut at the Sony Open, Allenby went to dinner with his good friend Anthony Puntoriero and his caddie Mick Middlemo. From there, they went to Amuse Wine Bar near Ala Moana in Honolulu, not far from Waikiki.

Camilo Villegas wowed at Sedgefield on Sunday, firing a final round seven-under 63 to capture the Wyndham Championship, his first title in nearly 4 1/2 years (2010 Honda Classic). Villegas posted a total of 17-under for the tournament to edge out Bill Haas and Freddie Jacobson by a mere stroke.

Scotty and Rory face off in final round

Scotty and Rory face off in final round

Eighteen holes separate Adam Scott from capturing the Australian Open title and completing the coveted “Triple Crown.” The only player who poses a threat is two-time major champion Rory McIlroy, who is still winless this year.

After Scott posted a four-under 68 in the third round on Saturday, he took a four-shot lead over McIlroy, who struggled early in the round but rallied to shoot a two-under 70 and keep a bit of pressure on Scott for the final round.

Looks easy, right?

The Guardian has assembled an interactive guide to the five holes comprising arguably the most difficult closing stretch on the Open Championship rota.

Well worth your attention, it pairs snazzy graphics with the insight of several illustrious (and not so illustrious) competitors, Graeme McDowell, Steve Stricker and Jim Furyk among them.

View of the famed lighthouse at Harbour Town Golf Links on Saturday

Per popular request — meaning, like, two people — I’m tossing up an open thread/dartboard, where you can all vent about your grimaces and praises with The Heritage. My main ones? Well, the beautiful views (which is up for several interpretations! LOLZ!).

Anyway, some points of interest, including several highlights and sightings last night at the harbor and “Quarterdeck.”
