It’s hot in herre. As expected (yet dreaded), it was absolutely scorching hot at Baltusrol GC in Springfield, New Jersey (about 30 minutes from Manhattan). I mean, it “said” the temperature was 94-degrees, but I’m pretty sure it “felt” more like 105 degrees at least. And don’t even get me started what it was like if you were walking on concrete — I felt like I was suffocating and burning in a fire.

Well, even some of the golfers who are used to such roasting hot temperatures couldn’t handle the heat during Monday’s practice round ahead of the fourth and final major the PGA Championship.

The buzz all last week in golf was around #SB2K16, where Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and Smylie Kaufman took a bro’d-out vacation to Bakers Bay in the Bahamas. And it looked like a lot of friggin’ fun. Who else was addicted to Thomas and Fowler’s constant documentation of the trip via SnapChat, and had major FOMO? <<both hands raised>> (See photos below)

I commend the guys for letting loose and enjoying themselves, and anyone who thinks otherwise needs to pull that stick out of their behind.

Although #SB2K16 had to come to an end, it might not be too soon to start thinking about #SB2K17. Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus *both* want in on the festivities next year.

The Bear Trap, the stretch of three consecutive holes nos. 15-17 at PGA National, can get the best of players. We saw what happened to 54-hole co-leader Adam Scott on Saturday afternoon. I’m sure there were quite a few victims of those holes on Sunday, but the twosome of Smylie Kaufman and Shane Lowry were likely the most errrr…entertaining of them all on the par-3 15th. Just watch:

Happy New Year! Before I get started with the meat of this column, I’d like to pass along my best wishes for everyone in 2016. As I’ve mentioned, 2015 was a bit of a strange year, but it was also one of the greatest, and by far, it was the most memorable season for all four majors that I’ve witnessed in my young career. That said, I’m back covering PGA Tour events (along with as many European Tour ones I can do) and I’m ready for the new year.

As many often do when a new year rolls around, I’ve done some reflecting in the last couple of months, particularly when it comes to WUP. It’s no secret that my priorities have changed a bit in the past two years since I started doing more on-camera work (which I enjoy greatly and broadcasting has always been the ultimate goal for me when it comes to career development). Unfortunately, that’s taken time away from writing and looking after WUP with the passion that I have in its earlier years.
