Couple golf notes:

1) The Webb Simpson Rule is now an official rule, effective January 1 of 2012. You may remember that Simpson lost the Zurich Classic of New Orleans after his ball moved after he addressed it. The rule now states that if the ball moves after you address it and you are not the reason why (i.e. it was wind, etc.), you are not penalized.

Good job by the USGA and the R&A.

2) The Reno-Tahoe Open, played opposite the Bridgestone Invitational, will use the modified Stableford scoring system next year. (That’s the format where you get points for birdies and eagles and lose points for bogeys and worse.) Hey, the tournament gets little publicity and bad field every year because it’s up against a World Golf Championship event, so maybe this will spark some interest.

3) Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy have won the fan votes to join Tiger on the 2013 version of his video game in the US and Europe respectively. Now if my man Rickie can just win a PGA Tour event.

4) The Associated Press’ Doug Ferguson reports that the PGA Tour has decided to delay sending out Player of the Year ballots until after the WGC-HSBC Champions event next week. If Keegan Bradley or Charl Schwartzel win, it could theoretically change some people’s minds.

The final What It Means for the official 2011 PGA Tour season:

1) Congrats to Luke Donald on winning Disney, the money title, and quite possibly Player of the Year. He shot a 64 today, including six straight birdies after making the turn, capped off with a 45 foot bomb on 15. Absolutely sensational play, and he 100% deserves the money title.

This was a huge win for the Jets. They go into the bye at 4-3, and finally beat a high quality football team.

The defense stepped up when it had to (thank you Darrelle Revis and Kyle Wilson), and Plaxico woke up.

Well done guys, nice 27-21 victory!

The Jets matchup tomorrow against the Chargers is arguably the biggest game so far this season. From Rex’s blunder to wanting to head into the bye at 4-3, this is a huge game. The keys:

1) Protect Mark Sanchez and let him throw. We saw in the 2nd half last week against Miami, open up the offense a bit and when he has time to throw has been very successful.

2) Run the ball and create play action.

3) Take advantage of the Chargers perennial lousy special teams.

4) Don’t do anything stupid.

Chargers 17
Jets 34
