What a week in golf it was. As the PGA Tour flew across the United States, finishing the California swing and heading to PGA National for the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. In case you missed the many stories from the week, here’s the biggest ones that made it a memorable one.

1. Tiger Woods is alive, and swinging.

Anonymously-sourced reports promised Woods was struggling with back rehab, but Woods’ agent swore those reports were ridiculous. Then Woods took it into his own hands, posting a video of a swing on an indoor simulator. Enough said.

2. Steph Curry played Augusta National, and birdied the first hole.

The reigning NBA MVP played Augusta National with fellow Golden State Warrior Andre Iguodala. As if life hasn’t been good enough to Curry lately, he birdied the first hole.

3. Jack Nicklaus hosted a Ryder Cup party.

26 potential Ryder Cup American players attended a party thrown by Jack Nicklaus at his Florida home. Yes, Tiger was there. No, he wasn’t in a wheelchair.

4. Ian Poulter guaranteed he’ll make the European Ryder Cup team.

With the Ryder Cup on everyone’s mind, Ian Poulter was asked about his chances to play in the September event. His response was simple. “I will make the team.”

5. Rickie Fowler played with Michael Jordan.

Fowler is contending at the Honda Classic, but his most interesting tee time of the week came with the greatest basketball player of all-time, Michael Jordan.
