When Marshawn Lynch says, “I’m just doing this so I don’t get fined,” it’s seen as disrespectful to the media.

When Tiger Woods said this after his shockingly horrible (+11) round of 82 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, he could laugh about his terrible day at the office.

“We all have days like this,” said Woods of his 44-38 round punctuated by 6 bogeys, two doubles, a triple and two meaningless birdies. “It was not a very good day from the very start until the end.”

For a guy turning 45 this June, Phil Mickelson sure is young at heart.
 
Even as friend Rickie Fowler joked that he was “over the hill” and Keegan Bradley laughs about outdriving him by 30 yards on the 14th hole and “left him a note in the fairway, letting him know the senior tees are not that far off,” Mickelson still had the media and the crowd in the palm of his hands.

When we last saw Matt Palsenbarg, Golf LAB at Northview Golf & Country Club co-owner, he had spent two action-packed days teaching some of the best British Columbia juniors high-performance golf techniques.
 
He started this week on Monday, giving a presentation on those high-performance techniques to PGA of BC professionals at the Vancouver Golf Club.
 
He had just enough time to get home to spend some time scootering with his daughter when he found out that another of his charges, Victoria’s Cory Renfrew, had Monday qualified for the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

It’s been seven years since I made it to the TPC Scottsdale and 14 since Tiger Woods last played here, so it’s no surprise that both of us were flummoxed by all the changes.
 
Where I remember a grassy hill behind the green where thousands of fans would relax and jeer bad shots, Woods kept on looking behind him, for some flags that used to tell him how the wind was blowing.
 
But now, instead of flags, there’s three tiers of luxury boxes, housing even more full-throated fans who’ve been waiting to give Woods the Bronx Cheer.

It might have been the strangest press conference in the history of golf.
 
Aussie Robert Allenby took to the podium in Scottsdale to excoriate the media for putting their spin on his Honolulu incident.
 
And instead of answering a lot of those unanswered questions, his defensive posture only made us want to know even more about his alleged kidnapping, beating and concussion-related symptoms.
