    Jason Sobel

  10. Singh still among the best

    Jason Sobel

    LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Sure, it's jumping the gun after only one round here at the Mercedes Championships, but wouldn't it be poetic justice if Vijay Singh finally won this event? With Tiger Woods resting up, Phil Mickelson still refusing to make the tr...

    LAHAINA, Hawaii -- I'm on to you, golf fans. The most popular question I hear this time of year is, "Who are your sleeper picks on the PGA Tour?" At first I thought, "Great, people want to watch some lesser-known players, get to know them, follow th...
