You can count on Rory McIlroy being the betting favorite to win the 2015 Masters. But if he is to back that up (and in the process, complete the career Grand Slam), one thing is certain: He better figure out the par 5s.
Bubba Watson announced on Christmas Eve via Twitter that he and wife Angie have adopted their second child. Caleb, who was adopted 13 days before the 2012 Masters, will be an older brother to sister Dakota.
The final round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions turned into a shoot-out Sunday, and required sudden death at the end of a long week. Graeme McDowell led through each of the first three rounds, but Bubba Watson walked away with the trophy.

Phil Mickelson said that despite poor results this season, he feels better than he has in years as he prepares to defend his Open Championship title. Also, Bubba Watson, in his pre-Hoylake schedule, included a round with his best friend, and Billy Hurley III got some much-needed rest before he takes on Royal Liverpool.
Leader Billy Hurley III will share the final tee time of the day with Kevin Chappell in Saturday's third round of the Greenbrier Classic on a day that will see the field's biggest names scattered across the course.
