Splitsville

Splitsville!

With the introduction of the wraparound schedule, it doesn’t really seem like a brand new season, but it is — the 2013-14 season kicks off with the Frys.com Open on Thursday, which is *crazy* because it feels like the 2013 season just ended the other day. Oh, wait, it kind of did.

Still, it’s that time of the year again, where players and caddies are breaking up and hooking up.

Players and caddies split all the time (and also get back together sometimes after a “break”). Imagine the start of the season, as well as certain periods throughout the year, when it’s “time for a change.” It’s like high school, where it’s not uncommon  that at some point one of your friends is going to date one of your exes and vice versa.  After all, it’s a limited pool you’re dealing with.

How about that clubhouse?? (View from 10 green)

Hello from Congressional! I can’t believe it’s been a year since Pebble Beach (and my first major). I feel so grown up! — actually, not really, but I can’t even begin to describe how much I’ve learned since then (you know, like, don’t accidentally wander into the Player’s Lounge looking for the ladies’ room…). Anyway, since I kicked off the day at Ken Venturi’s presser, it was going to be a hard act to beat. Oh, by the way, as I walked into the interview room, I spotted this sign (bottom left), which made me chuckle.

Adam Scott parts ways with longtime looper Tony Navarro

Maybe it’s that time of the month or something’s in the water, but there have been an awful lot of player/caddie splits lately. Martin Kaymer won’t be the only pro with a different looper on his bag this week. Add Adam Scott, Camilo Villegas, Francesco Molinari and Boo Weekley to the conversation, among others.
