The Monday Recap

Robert Garrigus and putter at Hyundai Tournament of Champions/provided by Associated Press

Just a few tidbits from this past week's pro circuits:

- Yes, Robert Garrigus' putter is that small. And just like a golf swing, there's no correct way - whatever works, works.

In Garrigus' case, the small putter earned him a playoff berth before Jonathan Byrd eventually won the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to begin the 2011 PGA Tour season.

- Tiger Woods was not present, because you had to win a tournament in 2010. It was something Woods failed to do for the first time in his pro career.

- Don't be fooled with the massive yardages the pros were mashing tee shots.

Elevation and trade winds in Hawaii in January can make it seem like the PGA Tour pros are trying out for the World Long Drive Championship.

- The European PGA Tour also kicked off this past week with the South African Open.

And who would have figured a South African would win?

Louis Oosthuizen did that as the reigning British Open champ begins 2011 in style, shooting 16-under for a playoff victory.
