    When we last saw Adam Hadwin, he was signing autographs in Palm Springs with a smile on his face, even though deep inside, he had to be hurting after coming T2 to unheralded Adam Long at the 60th Anniversary Desert Classic.

    Hadwin has spent the last week in his Scottsdale home, finishing his break and now he’s ready to tackle his “home game” of a golf tournament, the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

    Hadwin was part of Wednesday’s Annexus Pro-Am, which utilizes the innovative and effective two-pro tag-team format. For Hadwin, that meant playing the back 9 at TPC Scottsdale (Stadium) course at 9:40 a.m. with amateurs Donn Lux, Chris Lane, Wayne Cheplin and Rick Tigner, and getting to experience the craziness of the 16th hole, which was already in full throat Wednesday morning.

  • New Rules Will Simplify Game's Penalty Implementation

    By GORD MONTGOMERY, Inside Golf

    "Even though a new set of guidelines have now been put into play for the game of golf, the rulebook still doesn’t address one major component found in every weekend warrior’s game — the mullligan or breakfast ball.

    Despite that oversight, the new rules, the first in over six decades, will make the game’s regulations a bit easier for one and all to comprehend and abide by. At least that’s the word coming from Adam Helmer, the Director of Rules and Competitions for Golf Canada.

  • Mackenzie Hughes And Tiger Woods: Just Another Saturday At Torrey Pines

    “It’s never a bad day playing with Tiger.” 

    How many people get to say this, not just once, but twice in the past year?

    Ontario’s Mackenzie Hughes got to say this Saturday afternoon at Torrey Pines, after his third consecutive round of (-2) has him in the middle of the pack, T36 at (-6) in the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open.

    But that’s the smallest part of the story, as Hughes fired the low round in his group, one shot better than Scott Stallings and Tiger Woods.

  • North Beats South In First Round At Torrey Pines For 2019 Farmers Insurance Open

    Is this the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open or the 5th round of the 60th Anniversary Desert Classic?

    Torrey Pines North and South would presumably be tougher courses than the three courses in Palm Springs used for last week’s PGA Tour stop, but take a look at the first-round scores, particularly from the North Course, and you would be hard pressed to notice the difference.

    While Phil Mickelson shot a 60 in his opening round last week, this week in San Diego, Jon Rahm shot 62, Justin Rose and Doug Ghim both shot 63, C.T. Pan shot 64 and Jordan Spieth shot 65, all on the North Course.

    Torrey Pines North, traditionally three or four strokes easier than the brutish South Course, played to that on a Thursday where there was no wind, the greens and fairways were softened by torrential rains last week, and new rules allowing players to tap down spike marks and other damage provided the most optimal scoring conditions.
