Why You Should Watch Instead of Football on Sunday:

Have you been watching football recently? If you haven't, read our Guide to Golfing on NFL Sundays. Unfortunately, the NFL has been garbage lately. For this past Sunday Night Football display, I stayed up until 12:45 EST watching non-existent offense, bad coaching decisions, and just an overall terrible product. Plus, I lost a parlay because apparently professional kickers can’t hit a 24 yard field goal. Personally, I would much rather watch top of the line golfers chuck darts at the pin in Shanghai. I mean, technically you could watch both, but I will be watching the HSBC over a 9:30am London game that will have no playoff implications come the end of the year (the Washington Redskins vs. the Cinnacinati Bengals…. please).

The HSBC is definitely worth staying up for – not just on Sunday, but for any day of this tournament. It is going to be insanity.

This weekend will feature 10 Major championship winners (Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson, Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel, Adam Scott, enemy of America Danny Willett, Jimmy Walker, Martin Kaymer,  Rory McIlroy, and Henrik Stenson) and 8 of the top 10 in the Official World Golf rankings (2 – Johnson, 3 –McIlroy, 5 – Stenson, 6 – Scott, 7 – Reed, 8 – Watson, 9 – Willett, 10 – Fowler). 

Lastly – the boys are back. Not much more to be said:
