Kiradech Aphibarnrat officially won the Asian Tour's Order of Merit following Sunday's season finale, the King's Cup.

Over the final two weeks of 2013, we will be breaking down players that rose and fell over the past 12 months. Check out the entire series here.

Melissa Eaton

Ranking/movement: +129 (No. 387 to 258)

Why the rise? Before her maiden Symetra Tour victory in March, Eaton had decided to move her career to Europe. The South African was in search of a change in scenery and a change in competition that might spur a fresh start. Thus, the Florida’s Natural Charity Classic was strictly a warm-up as she prepared for the Ladies European Tour.

It's been said that the Masters transcends its sport. Well, look no further than Lebron James and teammate Dwyane Wade for proof.

Championship rings already on their fingers for winning the NBA title last season, the Miami Heat were given Augusta-style green jackets with a team spin by Wade – and he posted a jacket-clad team photo to his Instagram account.

Wade's photo included a caption on his account, dwyanewade: "I'm in a giving mood... Presented my teammates with a gift of a champion today... Channeling our inner Masters w the green jackets...#Lovemyteam#MastersGolf #wedowhatwewant #grownmenish"

All 91 Japan PGA representatives to resign

Golfweek Staff

All 91 representatives of Japan's Professional Golfers Association will resign after two executives played golf and socialized with the head of an organized crime group, it was announced Wednesday.

Then-Japan PGA vice chairman Shinsaku Maeda and then-board director Tadayoshi Bando played golf and dined with the head of a yakuza organized crime group earlier this year in Kyushu, Japan, Agence-France Presse reported, citing a Jiji Press story. New representatives are to be elected in January.

Representatives of the Japan PGA are prohibited from associating with those involved with organized crime, so Maeda and Bando were fired in October. The ...

Maybe she is the spark he was seeking.

Playing with girlfriend Katharina Boehm on the bag, Sergio Garcia broke a yearlong winless drought by firing a 4-under 68 on Sunday to clear Henrik Stenson by four shots at the Thailand Golf Championship in Chonburi, Thailand.

Garcia's last victory came at the Johor Open in Malaysia in December 2012. The triumph Sunday is Garcia's fourth on the Asian Tour.

"It was great, an amazing week," Garcia said. "I'm very, very happy, and I can't wait to go back home to Switzerland and kind of sleep on it ...

Lee Trevino jokes with Jack Nicklaus on No. 18 during Saturday's round at the PNC Father/Son Challenge at The Ritz Carlton Golf Club of Orlando.

ORLANDO – The pairing of Jack Nicklaus and Lee Trevino never grows old.

They may be a little older, a little grayer, and the ball doesn’t go as far, but it’s still a treat to see these two great competitors together. The grandstand behind the first tee was packed when Nicklaus tipped his hat to his faithful fans. Even a family of deer came out to watch them near the first fairway. Seeing Nicklaus and Trevino together conjures so many memories.

“It was the same as it was 30 years ago,” Trevino said.

Which is to say Trevino had ...

CHONBURI, Thailand -- Behind a hole-in-one on the 236-yard eighth hole, Sergio Garcia jumped into a share of the lead with Justin Rose at the Thailand Championship.

Garcia was bogey free on the round, firing a 7-under 65.

Rose picked up a bogey early in the round on the third hole, but followed with two birdies and an eagle on No. 11 to fire a 68 after sitting in second place overnight.

The high-profile duo is two strokes ahead of Anirban Lahiri, Alexander Levy and first-round leader Alex Cejka, while Rickie Fowler is three back and Henrik Stenson is part of ...

Alex Cejka during the second round of the 2013 Hong Kong Open.

The likes of Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose and Bubba Watson showed up this week to compete in the Asian Tour's Thailand Golf Championship.

But after the first round, it was Germany's Alex Cejka who was out in front.

Cejka shot an 8-under 64 on Thursday at Amata Spring Country Club in Chon Buri, Thailand, to grab a one-shot lead over Rose and Thailand native Arnond Vongvanij, who played college golf at the University of Florida.

"I hit the ball very well today," Cejka said. "The greens roll perfect. I took a couple big chances and made birdies.

"I ...

Tiger Woods and Greg Norman during the 1999 Open Championship.
Tiger Woods and Greg Norman during the 1999 Open Championship.

Playing a round of golf where it is easiest – in his imagination – Greg Norman was quite comical, without trying to be. Telling Golf Magazine that he was fearless, and thus would have held his own against Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson, Norman saved his best stuff for Woods.

“I probably would have beat him,” said Norman.

Not sure in what, but if he was talking golf, then the Shark has probably forgotten that one time when his path did cross with Woods. It was the 1998 Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne, where the International Team put ...

Branden Grace during the 2013 Presidents Cup.

Modest that they were, Branden Grace could profit nicely from recent finishes at the World Cup (T-20) and Nedbank Challenge (T-14). He secured enough world-ranking points at those tournaments to move from 52nd to 51st, then to 49th in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Finishing within the OWGR's top 50, of course, brings with it an exemption into the Masters, so to try and help his cause, Grace has chosen to tee it up in this week’s Nelson Mandela Championship. Had he not played, Grace was projected to have dropped to 51st.

He’ll need to play well ...

A statue of a child playing golf stands at the 2013 Nelson Mandela Championship, which benefits the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund.

Talk about apropos. How about the European Tour’s Nelson Mandela Championship being held the same week as memorial services for the iconic leader? The tournament is in its second year and is being staged in Durban, South Africa, about 300 miles southwest of Johannesburg, where ceremonies have been held for Mandela, the former South African president and Nobel laureate who died Dec. 5.

Although Mandela’s connection to sports was more with World Cup rugby and World Cup soccer, he appreciated golf and South Africa’s rich history in the game.

Lee Trevino practices for the 2013 PNC Father/Son Challenge in Orlando, Fla.

— On a warm December morning, the driving range at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club was empty except for one lone golfer at the far end in the distance. Squint if you must, but the swing is a dead giveaway. In his inimitable fashion, he once described his move as “looking like a caveman killing his lunch.”

There is Lee Trevino, the golfer who claims he came from a long line of striped range balls, still beating them all these years later. He turned 74 on Dec. 1, and says, “I’m old, and I wish I was young.”

Ten minutes earlier, Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia and former University of Florida golfer Arnond Vongvanij will tee off. Justin ...
