Phil Mickelson described his feelings toward links golf as a "hate-love" relationship, meaning he once dreaded coming over to the British Open for a brand of golf played only once a year. Now he loves it.
It hasn't been from a lack of effort. Mickelson holds the U.S. Open record with six silver medals, the latest heartbreak coming only a month ago at Merion. Mickelson's national championship has never meant more than it does now.
Charl Schwartzel didn't want to see a good round go to waste. A birdie on his final hole Thursday in the Memorial allowed him to feel good about his game, and it gave him the early lead.
Charl Schwartzel hit the ball so consistently well at Muirfield Village that the former Masters champion twice had stretches of four straight birdies. And when he made a double bogey with an 8-iron in hand and his ball on a tee toward the end of the round, he got rid of that bad taste with one last birdie for a 7-under 65.
Sixteen players have won major championships since Tiger Woods got his last one.
The defending Masters Tournament champion caused a roar to echo through the pines when he aced No. 16, the 170-yard par-3. Once Watson left the tee box, he dished out several high-fives.
Notable pairings include Tiger Woods with Luke Donald and Scott Piercy at 10:45 a.m., and 2012 Masters champion Bubba Watson with Ian Poulter and Steven Fox at 10:34.
The Sony Open is known for the royal palms that blow gently in the Pacific breeze, the endless ocean, the rolling surf behind the 16th green and along the 17th hole, and the lady on No. 9.
Rickie Fowler strolled from the 18th green to the scoring tent, hoping a brief smile would shroud anyone's doubts about finally making the Tour Championship. Turns out, he did it anyway Sunday at the BMW Championship.
Gary Woodland left Hawaii for a two-week break but instead of heading to his home in Florida, he made a detour to Las Vegas to work with new swing coach Butch Harmon.
"It's nice not to play for three months and have the first tournament be one you can kind of work into it, instead of showing up at Sony and having a so-so day or two and you're going home," he said. "You have a so-so day or two here, you still have the weekend."
Piercy said he had a few offers, but "we didn't get anything that we felt was fair."
