The Players Championship will move to a three-hole aggregate starting in 2014. (Shown here is the 2013 Players Championship, Tiger Woods).
The Players Championship will move to a three-hole aggregate starting in 2014. (Shown here is the 2013 Players Championship, Tiger Woods).

PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem announced on April 16 that beginning this year The Players Championship will go into a three-hole, aggregate playoff in an event of a tie.

Up until 2013, it was a sudden-death playoff to determine the champion.

The playoff holes will be 16,17 and 18, combining a player’s score on those three holes to determine the winner.

“Holes 16, 17 and 18 of The Players Stadium Course are perhaps the most dramatic closing holes in professional golf from a risk-reward standpoint, as they test all facets of a player’s physical and mental game ...

Bubba Watson's win in the 2014 Masters came amid lower television ratings on CBS and ESPN.
Bubba Watson's win in the 2014 Masters came amid lower television ratings on CBS and ESPN.

Enthralling as Bubba Watson's shotmaking was Sunday during his Masters victory, it couldn't overcome several factors that led to a ratings drop.

CBS' broadcast of the final round from Augusta National dropped 24 percent year-over-year to a 7.8 rating, USA Today reported. It was even down from Watson's win two years ago, which drew an 8.1.

ESPN said Saturday that its Thursday and Friday telecasts averaged a 1.6 rating, down from 2.5 a year earlier. CBS' Saturday broadcast drew a 4.4, down from 6.3 a year earlier.

Tiger Woods' April 1 ...

Tiger Woods underwent back surgery after the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship, missed the Masters and might not return in time for the U.S. Open at Pinehurst.
Tiger Woods underwent back surgery after the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship, missed the Masters and might not return in time for the U.S. Open at Pinehurst.

Tiger Woods, who underwent surgery last month and withdrew from the Masters on April 1, seemingly will be in recuperation mode "past the U.S. Open," his friend and Golf Channel analyst Notah Begay III told CBS Sports Radio.

As Woods missed the Masters last week, viewership dipped as Bubba Watson won at Augusta National. He remained World No. 1 as the three players who could have taken the top spot – Adam Scott, Jason Day and Henrik Stenson – didn't contend at the Masters.

In a statement on his website April 1, Woods had said that he was expected to ...

Bubba Watson's second Masters victory vaulted him to first in the latest U.S. Ryder Cup standings.

Watson replaced Jimmy Walker in the top spot, running his point total to 6,258.984. Walker, a three-time winner this season on PGA Tour, is second with 4,459.071 points.

Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed, Matt Kuchar, Jason Dufner, Phil Mickelson and Harris English also are in the top nine. Zach Johnson is 10th, less than 100 points behind English.

Nine players automatically qualify for the U.S. team while three more players will be selected by U.S ...

Despite talk that he could lose his No. 1 ranking following the Masters, Tiger Woods remained in the top spot of the Official World Golf Ranking Sunday.

With 8.8665 points, Woods, who did not play at Augusta National after undergoing back surgery, is still 0.5837 points ahead of second-ranked Adam Scott, who tied for 14th in his Masters title defense.

Sunday's winner of the green jacket, Bubba Watson, who also won the tournament in 2012, jumped to fourth, improving eight spots from a week ago. Jordan Spieth, the runner-up along with Jonas Blixt, cracked the top 10 ...

Bubba Watson tweeted a selfie photo with his wife, Angie, and a Waffle House crowd after winning the 2014 Masters in Augusta, Ga.

The first Masters champions dinner for Bubba Watson after his 2014 victory? Waffle House. (Hold all your victory-hangover jokes, please.)

Watson is a rural Southern man, after all, and Augusta National is firmly embedded in Dixieland. It's a fair guess that after winning your second Masters championship, no waffle is awful.

Which begs the question: What would be your first meal after exiting Magnolia Lane after winning the Masters? Answer in the comments below or tweet to us with #Golfweek.

Several years ago, our Jeff Rude explored the atmosphere that is a Waffle House in Augusta. And hilarity ensued.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Without further adieu, the championship edition of Achie's Awards to close a dramatic week of highs and lows at Augusta National.

The Mayor of Bagdad award could be for none other than Masters champion Bubba Watson.

Bernhard Langer won his first green jacket in 1985 and then again in 1993.

At 56, Langer continues to play at the Masters, but has not really had a chance to win or even record a top-10 until Sunday, when the Champions Tour stalwart shot a final round 3-under 69 and finished T-8 with Jimmy Walker, Rory McIlroy, John Senden, Kevin Stadler and Thomas Bjorn.

“My game has been good, even when I missed a cut,” Langer said of his first round breaking 70 since 2004. “I've had some very good rounds here; I just had one round where ...

Bubba Watson holds his 2-year-old son, Caleb, while they celebrate with fans lining the 18th green after his three-shot victory at the Masters.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Angie Watson stepped off the practice putting green after the closing ceremony carrying young son Caleb in her arms.

“Where’s my daddy?” Caleb asked, clutching his father’s white visor and looking most adorable in a green-and-white striped Masters polo and khaki bottoms. This scene played out so much differently than the first time Bubba Watson won the Masters two years ago, with Caleb and Angie back in Windermere, Fla., at the family’s Isleworth rental home. Bubba had been a father for one week when he won his first green jacket in legendary fashion. Now, he ...

Bubba Watson, after winning the Masters for the second time, receives the green jacket of Augusta National from last year's champion, Adam Scott.

By Friday night, you knew this was setting up to be a weird Masters. It felt upside down just to have recent major winners Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Charl Schwartzel, Graeme McDowell, Zach Johnson, Angel Cabrera, Jason Dufner and Y.E. Yang all miss the cut while golden oldies such as Bernhard Langer, Fred Couples, Jose Maria Olazabal, Vijay Singh, Mike Weir, Sandy Lyle and Larry Mize all qualified for weekend play.

Actually, the feeling was evident during practice rounds, when the course was missing its traditional spring flowering color – blame winter – and the big talk about changes the course ...

AUGUSTA, Ga. – In what proved to be a seesaw, up-and-down Sunday at Augusta National, Bubba Watson managed to fire a 3-under 69 to outlast Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt to win his second Masters title in three years.

Watson trailed Spieth by two as late as the seventh hole, but used birdies on Nos. 8, 9 and 13 to put some space between he and the 20-year-old to coast home with a three-shot victory.

ORLANDO, Fla. – It’s a little more than two weeks until opening night, well beyond ordinary crunch time, and inside a dark and diminutive post-editing room at Golf Channel’s headquarters, producer Israel DeHerrera is trying to heroically scramble – the very trademark of his star subject in the upcoming three-episode documentary he’s feverishly trying to complete.

Sporting a blue Argentina track top and brown tam-o’-shanter, DeHerrera, known as Izzy, intensely lays down audio tracks, laboring over each second of video on the screen in front of him. An artificial golf-ball sound effect over a poetic, slow-motion Arnold Palmer ...

Adam Scott fired an even-par 72 to finish the Masters at 1 over, in a tie for 14th.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Adam Scott was happy with his position after 36 holes at the 2014 Masters, sitting four shots behind Bubba Watson with plenty of tough golf ahead of him.

And then Saturday afternoon's front nine happened, and the defending champion basically had played his way out of the tournament.

"Without overanalyzing it, it's always a bit here or there, but a poor nine holes on Saturday stopped all my momentum and had me on the back foot – and I just couldn't go anywhere from there," Scott said after a final-round, even-par 72 that left him T-14 ...
