HONOLULU, Hawaii (Doug Ferguson/AP) — The advice has been passed along for decades on the PGA Tour, and Matt Kuchar believes it has merit. He just doesn’t like it.

Call it the 80-20 equation.

“I remember coming out and guys telling me you’re going to make 80 percent of your money in 20 percent of your starts,” Kuchar said. “The idea was basically you’re going to get hot a couple of times, and that’s what you wait for. And it makes sense. You’re going to get hot and then peter off a little bit.”

KAPALUA, Hawaii (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Patrick Reed never thought he had a serious chance to win at Kapalua until he stood over an 18-foot birdie putt in a playoff.

Like so many other times in his young career, he didn’t waste it.

Four shots behind with four holes to play, Reed made two birdies, holed an 80-yard shot for eagle and got just enough help from Jimmy Walker to win the Hyundai Tournament of Champions for his fourth career PGA Tour victory.

Inside Golf reporter Gord Montgomery is following Canada's Nick Taylor during his rounds at the Hyundai Tournament Of Champions and will be posting daily stories on the Abbostford, B.C. professional from Kapalua in Maui.- ed.


It won't be the biggest cheque Nick Taylor ever cashes during his PGA TOUR life but the experience he gained at this year's Hyundai Tournament of Champions is something he'll be able to take to the bank week after week.
Taylor, from Abbotsford, B.C., finished the 72-hole winners-only event at (-5), well behind the top finishers this year. The thing is though, he never had a round above par on the demanding Plantation Course and that memory will stick with him moving forward.
