Here we go:

1) There are times in golfers careers where the moment seems to stop and you just expect something to happen. That was Tiger Woods. On 16. At the Memorial. From off the green. The pitch shot went in for birdie. The ballgame was essentially over, and Tiger got win #73.

Here’s this week’s What It Means:

1) Congrats to Zach Johnson on his victory at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. He earned it with some great shot making and clutch putting. However, he almost lost it after failing to move his ball-mark back to its correct location on the 18th green. Luckily someone noticed it (and he didn’t sign for an incorrect scorecard), and he made the par putt, ensuring the one-shot victory.

Still, a solid win for a guy who has been knocking on the door numerous times this spring.

Here’s this week’s What It Means:

1) What a month Jason Dufner is having. Wins New Orleans, gets married, wins again at the Nelson. Damn. Hottest golfer on the planet for sure. The birdie putt on 18 to win the event over Dicky Pride was so pure — right in the heart.

Hey, as Jim Nantz and Nick Faldo said on the end of the CBS broadcast — maybe there is something to this laid back attitude. It’s working for Dufner, and who knows where this road leads to next.

1) Congrats to Matt Kuchar on winning The Players. What an awesome shot at #14 over the tree and an awesome birdie putt at #16 to give himself enough cushion to win.

The amazingly consistent Kuchar now has the biggest win of his career and an excellent stepping stone for golf’s ultimate prize: a major. I wouldn’t put it past him. He is truly Mr. Consistency.

Here’s this week’s What It Means:

1) Congrats to Rickie Fowler on his first PGA Tour win, defeating Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points in a playoff to win the Wells Fargo Championship. He finally got the monkey off his back and can finally go out and be the star that all the hype and marketing people have made him out to be.

The wedge shot into #18 in the playoff was dynamite, leaving him an easy four-foot putt for the winning birdie. The sky is the limit for Rickie, and I’d look for big things from Fowler over the next 5-10 years.

Here’s this week’s What It Means:

1) Congrats to Jason Dufner, winning his first PGA Tour event, the Zurich Classic of New Orleans today on the second playoff hole. They say it’s better to be lucky than good and that’s Dufner, getting lip ins on 13, 15 and 17 for par and then birdieing the second playoff hole, #18, to beat Ernie Els in the playoff.

Dufner is very hard to read, doesn’t really crack a smile and at times looks very shaky. I’m not sure where he goes from here, but getting your first win is a good starting point.

Here’s this week’s What It Means:

1) Congrats to Ben Curtis on winning the 2012 Valero Texas Open for his first win since the 2006 84 Lumber Classic, an event which no longer exists.

That par putt on 17 was dynamite and one of the more unlikely major champions in the history of golf is now back in the winner’s circle.

I have absolutely no idea where Curtis goes from here. Maybe a win or two here and there but right now he seems a little too inconsistent to get into the winner’s circle again. Parity reigns right now on the PGA Tour, and I’m not sure he has the game to rise above that.
