    Justin Thomas wins the Tournament of Champions on Maui, the annual first event of the calendar year, for the second time in four years. At 26 he becomes the fourth youngest golfer since WWII to win 12 PGA events, one more than Jordan Spieth.

    Of the potential young "Big Four" of a few years ago, Thomas has been the most consistent. McIlroy has been up and down but had a big year last year (edging out Brooks Koepka for player of the year). Day and Spieth have struggled and have been passed up in the world rankings by Xander Schauffele, 26, who is now 8th. Thomas is 4th, McIlroy 2nd, and 29 year old Koepka is number one.

    I watched quite a bit of this tournament. I was down with a cold and the weather wasn't good here over the weekend. Happy for Thomas. It went down to him and Patrick Reed in a playoff. I'm a little concerned about Spieth. He hasn't won in two years. He has withdrawn from this weeks tournament, Sony Open in Hawaii, due to a cold. Hard to understand what's happened to him. I've heard he's made a swing change and have been told most don't ever make it all the way back from a change of swing. It will be sad if Spieth doesn't get back. I was hoping he would rival Tiger in Major wins. Spieth is currently 43rd in the world. Jason Day is 37th.
    On another note. I was watching this tournament with interest in a local product, JT Poston. He and my oldest son were friends in college. He won his first tournament last year. He was on the first page of leaders for most of the tournament and finished T-11. He's currently 67th in world rankings. His career is progressing well. Hopefully, it continues.

    Great win for Webb Simpson yesterday at the Waste Management Open in Scottsdale, Arizona. He came from 2 shots back with 2 holes to play to win in a one- hole playoff with Tony Finau.

    Adam Scott wins the Genesis Invitational by two strokes over a very strong field at famed Riviera course, which has held majors in the past. It was Scott's first PGA Tour win in nearly three years, but his 14th overall (third all-time among Aussies) and 29th win worldwide.

    Tiger Woods was inserted as the tournament's official host this year and responded by coming in dead last, including a five over 77 yesterday, which must have caused color analyst Nick Faldo to do everything in his power to hold back tears.

    But hey! God-like Tiger made the cut and only finished 22 strokes behind. I'm sure if they added another 9 holes he could have caught up!
