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.)

Wowza!

Wowza!

Bubba Watson has pulled off seemingly impossible shots throughout his career (e.g., 2011 Masters) — it’s his MO. Watson wowed and impressed once again, but this time in Shanghai at Sheshan International Golf Club in the final round of the WGC-HSBC Champions.

After Watson snagged the solo lead on the back nine, he ran into trouble on nos. 16 and 17 with a bogey and double-bogey, respectively. And just like that, he had dropped three shots. Heading into the 18th with a two-shot deficit to Tim Clark, who was safely in the clubhouse, Watson needed an eagle on the par-5 final hole to force a playoff.

At the RBC Canadian Open, Tim Clark waited until the back nine to put together one of the best Sunday charges of the season. Clark birdied five holes on the back to shoot a five-under 65, and defeat third round leader Jim Furyk by one stroke. The Canadian Open is the second win of his career on the PGA Tour.

The Golf News Net’s Ryan Ballengee joined me to chat about our thoughts and reactions to the Presidents Cup captains’ picks by Fred Couples for Team USA and Nick Price for the Internationals. Tune in. We are super insightful.

Oh, by the way, Ballengee and I are going to make this a regular program. We’re still undecided on the name, but we’ll be doing these regularly on Tuesdays, and you should tune in because next week we might get into a fight or two and have a surprise guest!

Anyway, leave your thoughts and comments below.

The Picks

The Picks

After Phil Mickelson played with Jordan Spieth on Monday at the Deutsche Bank Championship and watched the 20-year-old phenom fire 62, he was impressed, to say the least. Mickelson was so impressed with Spieth that he sent a text almost immediately after they signed their scorecards to Fred Couples, captain of the U.S. Presidents Cup team, that said:  “Dude, you’ve got to pick this guy.”

Tim Clark is thought to have led the anchorers against the ban on anchoring

Tim Clark, Carl Pettersson and seven other PGA Tour players have teamed up to take on golf’s governing bodies if the PGA Tour adopts the impending ban on anchored putters, which the USGA and R&A announced last week would be banned starting January 1, 2016. While several other major tours have come out to voice their support for golf’s governing bodies, the PGA Tour is waiting it out and if it decides to adopt — which it likely will — the rule, then nine Tour pros are ready to fight over the issue in court, according to SB Nation’s Emily Kay:

These kids are good

These kids are good

I’m still reeling from flu-like symptoms and the tragic loss of the Seattle Seahawks to the Atlanta Falcons, but I’m trying to put aside my qualms for the back-nine battle at the Sony Open.

Rookies Russell Henley and Scott Langley posted 17-under 193 to break the 54-hole scoring record at Waialae Country Club. The 23-year-olds entered the final round three shots clear of the closest contender, Tim Clark.

Clark looks to defend at The Players

Tim Clark figures he’s about 70-80% healthy, but considering he’s been benched for most of the season, he’s just looking forward to playing golf. Since his second-place finish at the Sony Open in January he’s been struggling with tendinitis in his right elbow. While he showed up for the Masters, he only played because, well, it was the Masters.

Eh, my neck!

Ernie Els withdrew from the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club because of a sore neck. Martin Hardy, his spokesman at International Sports Management, told the AP he wasn’t sure how Els tweaked his neck. The South African last competed four weeks ago at the Sony Open. He’s expected to return to action next week at the Match Play Championship in Tucson, Arizona. But Els was spotted the weekend before last playing in Florida and sporting some scruff — see!
