The Players Championship is almost over. I am a fan of the event but not a fan of the PGA Tour and Golf Channel's constant marketing campaigns. We get it. It’s the Players Championship. If the event was at the same level as a major championship, it might have been rescheduled last year.
Dustin Johnson was asked on Tuesday if any Players Championship moments stood out in his mind.
Dustin said, “Obviously one of the probably iconic shots was Davis Love out of the kind of left pine straw on 16.” “That’s what I remember for sure. But, yeah, I think there’s a few...obviously, well Tiger’s putt, but they play it like ever five seconds so, you know.”
The Players will play host to about 20% occupancy and tickets are still available. Sunday will cost you about $250 to attend!
Rory is technically your defending champion as he won the event in 2019 and still holds onto that awkward looking trophy. On Tuesday, Rory was asked if his best golf is behind him?
Rory Said, “No, I don’t think you can ever think that. I’ve talked about this before; you have to be an eternal optimist in this game, and I truly believe that my best days are ahead of me, and you have to believe that.”

Other Golf News…
Talks this week from Bryson DeChambeau talked about how he might use the 9th fairway to give himself an easier shot into the 18th green. But the PGA Tour announced a Bryson rule with an imaginary out of bounds.
Canada is closed…
The RBC Canadian Open was canceled because of travel restrictions. This is the 2nd consecutive year the event has been canceled. The event was slated for the week before the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. The PGA Tour stated they will be finding a tournament venue in the United States.
I would simply suggest Canada turn in its golf clubs and stick to the sports they're good at. Which reminds me… The Aloha Press is going to Cancun at the end of April. We would love for you to join us on our much needed sun, golf, and too much fun! Canada get yourself a taste of freedom and join the Aloha Press in Cancun, MX.
