More Primetime Golf, More Hawaiian Scenery

Since we're still getting back in the swing of golf this season (sorry but I couldn't resist the pun) I want to remind you that golf is in primetime again as well as the wee hours of the morning this week.

At least, it is here on the East Coast of the USA. The Sony Open in Hawaii is roughly 5 hours ahead of us here in North Carolina. (I'll get to the early golf in a minute.)

Jimmy Walker at Waialae Country Club last year

As you probably know, Jimmy Walker is trying to get a three-peat at Waialae Country Club this week -- a task made somewhat easier by Jordan Spieth's absence. Spieth is taking this week off before heading for Abu Dhabi next week (with new sponsor Coca-Cola in tow).

But 22 from the Hyundai field are making the short hop from Maui to the big island so there will be some proven talent there, players like Zach Johnson and Graeme McDowell. Adam Scott is also making his Tour debut for 2016, as is Luke Donald. And there will be 9 first-timers in the field, including Emiliano Grillo and Russell Knox.

And with all the nasty weather around the US, how can you go wrong dreaming about a warm paradise? Maybe you can't be there, but it's nice to be reminded that it still exists!

In the wee hours of the morning you can catch the Joberg Open on the ET. Last week's winner Brandon Stone is trying to go back-to-back in South Africa. GC's coverage starts bright and early at 5am ET this morning. (Yes, many of you will have already missed it by the time you read this. But the second round starts at the same time Friday morning.)

The Sony Open gets underway with the GC Pre-Game show at 6pm ET, then the regular coverage begins at 7pm ET.

And in case you like watching the celebrities play, the Diamond Resorts Invitational starts at 2:30pm ET and runs until the GC Pre-Game show starts.

So you've got plenty of golf to keep you busy today if you're enduring the cold winter weather, as most of us are. Think warm thoughts, folks. Aloha!
