Heroes

1. Stacy. No one ever birdies the Road Hole, let alone to ice the Open. Onions.

2. Tiger. He played spectacular golf, obviously, but how cool was it to see him as a proud dad? After all he's been through, Tiger deserves that happiness.

3. Gary Woodland. Nice to have this mega-talented bomber back in the winner's circle after a tumultuous year and a half. It's irrelevant that his win came in Reno -- this should be the start of something big.

4. The Old Course. It was so glorious in HD I wanted to make love to my flat-screen. (Note to the FCC: I didn't.)

5. Michelle Wie. This Solheim will be a defining moment for the onetime prodigy. She can accelerate her long, slow decline or reward her captain's faith and play with a renewed purpose and passion. Believe it or not, I'm betting on the latter.

Zeros

1. Yani. Amidst all this love for Inbee and Stacy, it's hard to remember that less than a year and a half ago Tseng was on a historic tear. Now, after her fourth straight missed cut, she's so lost she's considering canning her swing coach. Man, this game is fickle.

2. Davis. He's paired with Tiger and Keegan at the PGA. If wasn't already feeling old, getting blown off the planet by these guys will surely do it.

3. Ben Curtis. In Reno, under the Stableford system, the one-time British Open champ shot -11 to finish DFL. Somehow 75-80 woulda sounded better.

4. "Glory's Last Shot." The PGA Championship's hoary marketing slogan has, at long last, been retired. Because, as we all know, the FedEx Cup is really glory's last shot. (Cough, cough.)

5. Corey Pavin. He didn't make a bogey in two out of three rounds and birdied two of the final three holes yet he still came up one shot short at the 3M Championship. Apparently the golf gods are still upset about the Ryder rainsuit fiasco.
