Cramming for the first exam of the year

Every year the Sony Open is like the first day of school, but this time around it’s a bit different with the new wraparound season in place, so instead, it’s like returning from a long winter break. Walk out to the putting green and you’ll find yourself surrounded by a chorus of “Happy New Years!”

For those who didn’t cover and/or play in the first six tournaments of the 2013-14 season — like yours truly — then it still feels like the Hyundai Tournament of Champions kicked things off, but alas, we’re already *seven* events deep and this is the eighth. Cray, cray!

Ko in for swing

Ko in for swing over-tow?

On Monday 16-year-old phenom Lydia Ko announced she had sacked her swing coach, Guy Wilson, of 11 years because she said he couldn’t spend enough time with her while she plays as a touring professional.

Ko, the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history, was coached by Wilson since she was five. Naturally, he said he was “incredibly disappointed” by the decision, which came two weeks after she signed with management giant IMG.

Zach could only stomach a bit of practice

Zach Johnson was scheduled to fly with the Kuchars and the Loves to Ohio on Monday for the Presidents Cup, but Johnson was battling a bad case of the stomach flu and didn’t arrive until late Tuesday morning, causing him to miss the U.S. team photo.

As you know, Adam Scott won his first major and became the first Australian to win The Masters, which is beyond ginormous for the country.

Lucky for you — as the regular viewers of our show know — Luke Elvy, is an Australian golf commentator, who knows Scotty as well if not better than anyone in the media. He provides fantastic analysis and knowledgeable insight into Scott’s victory that you won’t get anywhere else.

Sweet, sweet
redemption.

There’s that moment on Masters Sunday when no matter how badly you have to go to the bathroom or grab another beer, you’re glued to your seat and fixated on watching the 18th hole at Augusta National Golf Club. And then, out of nowhere, Adam Scott drills a 30-footer for birdie on the 72nd hole to fire a three-under 69 and move to nine-under.

That’s what it looks like when you win The Masters

If you don’t think Adam Scott is attractive, you need to get your eyes checked. And that doesn’t just go for women. I’m talking to you, too, guys! You need to get your head checked if you can’t admit the 2013 Masters champion is handsome.

Two things: 1) There were just a few photographs taken of Scotty making two clutch putts to become the  first Australian to win at Augusta National in the tournament’s 77-year history; and 2) He’s mildly photogenic.

Thus, I figured I’d put together an AUS-SOME gallery. OK, fine, this is completely gratuitous, but trust me, you’ll thank me later .

Well, that was a thrilling finish! Last night when I was writing my preview post for today, the headline I had type was: “One for the ages.” For some reason, I changed it, but turned out, this Masters really was one for the ages.

Thanks so much for tweeting your questions. FYI, we started answering them around the 22 minute mark.

Stevie's in a familiar place: atop the leaderboard at Firestone with a guy in a red shirt!

Contrary to popular belief – and the Golf Channel TV cameras – there were golfers competing at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational today not named Tiger Woods.

Adam Scott and his newly acquired, full-time caddie Stevie Williams were the real story of the day. The Aussie posted a bogey-free, 8-under-par, 62, the lowest first-round score in tournament history and one off the tournament record (61) set by Tiger Woods in 2000.

Tiger Woods claims the relationship between him and his caddie, Stevie Williams, is not strained despite the comments he made after the final round of the US Open that were broadly interpreted as critical.

After storming off the course the other week, he scolded himself for going against his instincts and indirectly blamed Stevie for giving him the poor advice. “Stevie said take dead aim right at it, and in my heart I said ‘no’. There was no chance,” Tiger said. “I have a sand wedge in my hand, and I can’t play at that flag. You land the ball on the green, it will go past the flags.”
