PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.—Jordan Spieth is trying to get back to the point that he stops thinking when he gets over a putt, and the AT&T National Pro-Am might provide the ideal environment for him.

SAN DIEGO—Tiger Woods has been away from the PGA Tour too long to know for certain when a shot is as good as it looks.
This was a six-iron on the par-three 16th hole on the South Course at Torrey Pines, from 188 yards to a slightly elevated green with a pin tucked behind a deep bunker.
KAPALUA, Hawaii—Dustin Johnson sat outside the Honolua Store on the first day of the new year, scarfing down the “Hobo Breakfast” of steamed rice and eggs as the sun just was starting to filter through the Cook pines that line the entrance to Kapalua.
He abruptly closed the lid on his carton and announced, “Let's go.”
NASSAU, Bahamas—Tiger Woods looked a lot better in his return to golf than he did when he left.
Playing for the first time since his fourth back surgery, Woods returned from a 10-month layoff with a three-under 69 on a breezy Thursday in the Bahamas that left him three shots behind Tommy Fleetwood after the opening round of the Hero World Challenge.
JERSEY CITY, N.J.—U.S. President Donald Trump showed up about an hour after the final match was underway yesterday at the Presidents Cup.
Had he shown up much later, he might have missed the start of a long celebration for an American team that rarely had it this easy.
This really was over before it started.
JERSEY CITY, N.J.—The opening ceremony at the Presidents Cup was unlike any other in golf, with former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton on the first tee.
But the results were all too familiar.
The Americans led at some point in all five of the foursomes matches yesterday at Liberty National. They won the first three.
JERSEY CITY, N.J.—Phil Mickelson is the voice of experience in team competition, and there's no comparison.
He was on the putting green yesterday morning at the Presidents Cup, explaining to some of the six rookies on the U.S. team why the teams might change for the final day of practice, the schedule after the team photo, just about anything short of how to tie their shoes.
ATLANTA—Justin Thomas is the FedEx Cup champion—a surprise to no one who saw him power his way to scoring records, his first major at the PGA Championship, and more PGA Tour victories than anyone this season.
Standing next to him at the trophy ceremony was Xander Schauffele, who never imagined being at the Tour Championship—much less winning it.
ATLANTA—All 30 players who made it to the Tour Championship this week have a mathematical shot at the FedEx Cup and its $10-million prize.
That includes Pat Perez, the No. 11 seed, who calculated his own odds of winning.
“All the top guys would have to play bad, which they haven't done all year,” Perez noted yesterday.
LAKE FOREST, Ill.—The clutch shots down the stretch in the BMW Championship belonged to everyone except the winner.
Marc Leishman didn't really need them.
Staked to a five-shot lead, and determined to not let another FedEx Cup playoff event get away from him, Leishman never gave anyone much of a chance yesterday at Conway Farms.
