Notes:

Bryson – Like him or hate him, you cant deny how entertaining Bryson DeChambeau is to watch. And when he is on, his combination of distance off the tee and touch around the greens is tough to beat. The scene around the Par-5 6th hole last weekend was surreal, so credit to Bryson for both winning the tournament and bringing a bunch of eyeballs to the sport.

Players Championship – This week marks the one-year anniversary of the PGA Tour shutting down for 13 weeks due to COVID-19. All things considered, the Tour has done a remarkable job of raising both money and awareness during the pandemic, and have had a very limited number of players contract COVID since the return to golf. As for this year’s edition, the course looks spectacular and once again the field is stacked for the unnoficial “5th Major” and the PGA Tour’s crown jewel event. Played on one of the most famous golf courses in the world, there are few places on Tour that offer the type of finish TPC Sawgrass does. We all know the par-3 17th hole, but surrounding that with the Par-5 16th and the tough finishing 18th, we’re in for a treat as golf fans this week.
