Finally. 6pm today. Kapalua. Tournament of Champions. Plantation Course. Golf Channel. I can watch some live golf and see some beautiful, warm scenery. Just in time for the weather mess the Atlantic Seaboard and New England is about to get. Blizzard conditions with near-hurricane force winds possible near Cape Cod. Great weekend to hunker down and watch golf from Hawaii (assuming you don't lose power.)

I'm curious to see how Dustin, Jordan, Justin and Rickie do. They have been all over social media lately partying up a storm. Didn't get the indication that keeping their game sharp was at the top of the list last month. Though I still wouldn't be surprised to see any or all of them around the top of the leaderboard, I'm feeling Hideki Matsuyama or Jon Rahm might be guys to watch for. It's a limited field. Only 34 players. I don't care, I am just happy to have something golf-related to do this weekend.

Whoa! This comes as a pretty big surprise. Been so far up my own butt that I had more or less completely forgotten about the existence of the PGA Tour. I'm glad it's back. Don't have any shits to give about who wins or whatever but it will be nice to look at some live golf in primetime.

Ooops, jumped the gun. Today's only Wednesday. Was thinking it was Thursday. Have to wait another day to watch golf.

Like Doug, I overestimated my enthusiasm. Straight up forgot to tune in. I was even sitting in front of tube at one point last night thinking, "Hmm, wish there was something interesting on." Sad! I am officially one of the casual viewers who can only be counted on when Tiger Woods is hacking it around. Oh well, guess my time as a hardcore fan of pro golf has come to an end. Gonna miss all the perks that came along with it. Oh wait a minute, there were no perks whatsoever.

Now that I think about it, other sports are rife with all kind of "Fan Appreciation" promotions and shit. But never once seen the PGA Tour do anything remotely like that. Instead, the home PGA Tour viewer is generally viewed with contempt by both the players and the powers that be. According to them, the home viewer is, and I quote, the shut-in loser who has nothing better to do than watch golf on TV with a magnifying glass, ready to call in (as if there is some kind of goddamn hotline to call in for such things, I been watching golf on tv for over a decade, I wouldn't have the slightest clue as to who or where to call if even if I did witness a violation) and fuck with the outcome of the tournament. (end quote)

So, on second thought: F the PGA Tour :facepalm

So JFish, if you haven't been watching Kapalua, your buddy Mark Leishman warmed up for this event at Top Golf in Virginia Beach. Evidently, he racked up some pretty good numbers on the leaderboard while he was there, while at the same time trying to lay low. He said the guy next to him recognized him. Do you go to this TopGolf?

I haven't been in a year or so. But my son loves it.

I'm amazed he "practiced" there. The golf balls go about 10 yards shorter than normal balls.

Maybe when I get skytraks. I should tweet at him that he can come use my indoor simulator, for a few tips that is.

I tried but watching these people mince about in the warm Hawaiian sun didn't make me feel better about my winter misery, it made me feel worse. As soon as the commentary zoned in on, as it is wont to do, Rickie Fowler and his aloha shirts I realized it was just the same old shit in a brand new year. Once again they turn one of Rickie's outfit choices into this major thing, taking great pains to point out Look, there is the line of propriety, and oh look! There is Rickie, a little off to the side of it, oh my! Pushing the boundaries but remaining oh-so respectful of the game. :puke REALLY? THIS CRAP YET AGAIN?

Tiger committed to Riviera. I've attended the past several years, usually on a weekend, but I'm contemplating going on a Thurs or Fri this year, to possibly follow Tiger without the weekend crowds (and who knows if he'll make the cut there.)

I've been at tourneys with Tiger before, and it's generally a nightmare to follow his group.

Of course, I'm sure that 10 million other a-holes have had this same idea, and it's going to be jam packed on Thurs or Fri.

Sack up man, it's Tiger Woods. That guy is good! (or was good depending on whose side you're on) Plus this is a special tournament in that it is one of the very few missing jewels in the dude's crown. If you were to make the (short) list of shit that Tiger has NOT accomplished in golf, Riviera is right there near the top.

Just checking in to say that I am watching way more of the NBA's product :puke than the PGA Tour's lately. I'm waking up to the realization that golf is not that great of a TV show.

So I'm attending not one but two days of some Riviera golf! Ha! I'm gonna buy me some boat shoes, smoke a cigar and sport like 9 popped collars. I will not be out-douchebro'd.
