After opening 2016 in Hawaii, the PGA Tour is back in the mainland this week, although some of the sports biggest names are half a world away.
In this edition of "Off The Tee" with Joel Harrington from 4 Deep Golf Blog, we talk about the latest news on and off the course.
Some of the headlines:
- Jordan Spieth shoots 30-under par at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. It's just the second time that's happened in PGA Tour history.
- Fabian Gomez wins the Sony Open, but Joel says it was Brandt Snedeker's tournament to lose.
- Zac Blair deals with a 'anchored' club controversy. So just what are the new rules?
- The PGA Tour returns to the mainland for this week's event in Palm Springs and Joel says there have been some changes to the event.
- Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, and Rickie Fowler paired together in Abu Dhabi this week.
- Ryder Cup player Jamie Donaldson vs. Chainsaw - guess who won that battle?
- Greg Norman is out after one season as FOX's lead golf analyst. Was last year's US Open his undoing?
