After The Masters: Jordan Spieth's Future

Risk and Reward - Northern Trust Open

Mardi Gras and its full carnivale glory is coming to an end across the world, but if you're here, you're not looking for beads. You won't find them here anyway, unless their beads of sweet, sweet fantasy wisdom. If you read last week's column, the you'll know that some of that wisdom was missing, though I blame the Magic-8 ball. I did mention at the end that it might be broken. ...

Risk and Reward - RBC Canadian Open

I've just noticed that I don't have any Canadians in my Power Rankings. I didn't intentionally do this, and it wasn't meant as a slight toward the United States' northern neighbors, but there just weren't any playing well enough statistically to justify a place. To be fair, no Canadian has won the Canadian Open for the last sixty years. That's sixty, with a zero. I'll be fixing that...
