Rose finds a new way to win 7th PGA Tour title

AVONDALE, La. (AP) It sounds like Justin Rose believes he's had a breakthrough in the Big Easy. The Pete Dye-designed TPC Louisiana doesn't have a layout that would seem to suit Rose's strengths.

So whose new era really is it, Sports Illustrated?

Our friend Ed Sherman made this humorous observation that’s worth shedding some light on quite the coincidence. Jordan Spieth unsurprisingly landed on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated after his Masters triumph.  If you had “Jordan Rules” as the banner headline, congrats to you.  But under that, they also made the bold proclamation that the Spieth Era has begun...

Boo Weekley back in Hawaii, with a hunger for golf

And that's why he didn't mind giving up his preferred choice of beer for what he calls - and spells - a ''My Tie'' when he returned to Maui for the Tournament...
