Monday, February 29, 2016

Sports Illustrated's Alan Shipnuck breaks down the good and bad -- and sometimes even the ugly -- of the weekend that was in professional golf. More often than not, someone blew a lead, another player stormed onto the scene and a few others provided us unforgettable moments, for whatever reason. Who is a hero and who is a zero? Find out below, but make sure to check back next week. You never know who will show up.

Heroes

1. Adam Scott. He told me in December his goal is to be the best putter in the world. If he gets even halfway there, lookout!

2. Tiger. Even in absentia he remains the sport’s biggest star. Nice to see Big Cat up and about and dropping bombs on social media.

3. Shane Lowry. Hey, if you’re gonna get fined, you might as well get your money’s worth! And the unapologetic tweet that followed? Gangsta.

4. Lexi. Her six-shot win in Thailand was a reminder of what a dominant force Ms. Thompson can be. Imagine what she might do if she works up the courage to putt with her eyes open.

5. Jason Bohn. Heart attacks are no joke, so all we’re gonna say is godspeed to this likeable vet.

Zeros

1. Rory. Not only did he miss the cut badly at the Honda but he petulantly refused to talk to reporters after his round two days running. I hope McIlroy remembers that he plays his best when he’s loose and carefree and not channeling his inner Bubba.

2. Gary Woodland. Ya know, sometimes it’s better to get your trousers dirty.

TOUR CONFIDENTIAL: Why Does Sergio Struggle During Big Moments?

3. Sergio. You know in an action movie there’s always a charismatic bad guy who puts up a good fight and you kinda want to see him prevail but deep down you know he’s always gonna die in the end? Yep, that’s Sergio.

4. Justin Thomas. He was pretty much the only American golfer on the planet *not* invited to Jack’s house and then a 71st double bogey cost him any chance of reeling in Scott and presenting the PGA of America with the ultimate F-you. At this rate Jordan is going to stop responding to his texts.

5. The USGA and R&A. So it’s come to this: to keep one of the greatest holes in golf relevant, Augusta National has to pay $27 million to blow up a neighboring golf course. And yet the governing bodies still refuse to do anything to regulate the incredible distance gains at the pro level. For shame.
