|Who’s Who at Kapalu-a|
Here at Kapalua on Maui, you got your Spieths and your Days and your DJs, and you got your guys like Canadian Mackenzie Hughes, who won the RSM Classic in a playoff. You knew that, right?
You got Aaron Baddeley, who’s here because he won on the PGA Tour last season for the first time since 2011.
Cody Gribble, fresh off the Web.com tour, won the Sanderson Farms Championship for his first PGA victory. Fellow Texan Spieth tweeted big-ass Texas kudos.
All winners, here at the SBS Tournament of Champions, the first tournament of the 2017 part of the season, and a good sign that April is right up there not so far away.
And Duf. Dufner won last year, the CareerBuilder Challenge, and got his trophy presented to him by Bill Clinton, the wanna-be not-gonna-be First Husband. Shee-it.
