Good Tuesday morning, golf fans, as we head over to the Honda Classic.
PGATour.com staff rounds up what’s worth remembering from the West Coast swing. No surprise on point No. 1…”Rahm won his first two starts of 2023, then added a third victory Sunday at The Genesis Invitational, where he outlasted Max Homa. That’s three wins for Rahm in his past five starts on TOUR. He’d never won three titles in a single PGA TOUR season before.”
Victoria Hernandez for USA Today…“The Buffalo Bills’ Josh Allen was among the Woods’ admirers at Riviera Country Club on Sunday cheering on the golf legend in the Genesis Invitational, which is run by Woods’ TGR Foundation. Allen got to meet Woods at the tournament and Sports Illustrated captured the moment where they shook hands and exchanged some words of encouragement.”
Bailee Hill for Fox News…”It was just weeks ago that golfer Brendan Steele said he wasn’t interested in joining LIV Golf. Now, reports say he will be joining the Saudi Arabia-backed tour. “
Stuff.co.nz report…”Danny Lee’s shift to the rebel Saudi Arabia-funded LIV Tour has been confirmed with the Kiwi golfer to join the Iron Heads GC team.”
Mike Hall for Golf Monthly…“With the 2023 LIV Golf season just days away, it has been announced that one of its players will miss the majority of the 14-tournament League. Hudson Swafford will undergo hip surgery which will see him miss between four and six months of the schedule that runs between February and November.”
Our Jason Daniels…”Originally intended for patrons that could not access the grounds in 2020 because of Covid, Augusta brought back the offer for the general golf fan for the 2021 edition.”

Good Monday morning, golf fans, as Jon Rahm kept his phenomenal run going by claiming victory at Riviera.
ESPN report…”Jon Rahm returned to No. 1 in the world Sunday by winning the Genesis Invitational with a performance that left no doubt who’s playing the best golf.”
AP report…”Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark claimed his seventh DP World Tour title with a four-shot victory in the Thailand Classic at the Amata Spring Country Club on Sunday.”
Christopher Powers for Golf Digest…”Woods, 47, turned up at Riviera this week having not played a real competitive round since the Open Championship last July. He winced. He perspired. He trudged up every hill that required trudging. He finished all four rounds with a broken body because he doesn’t know how to do it any other way. This is how it is now. He’s never going to feel good, but maybe just one week he’ll feel good enough to shock the world once more. Ultimately, this week, he finished with a two-over 73, putting him at one under overall, tied for 45th. It’s not the result he wanted, but it’s the one he produced despite all evidence pointing to him missing the cut. Even he knows that’s progress, as much as it pains him to say it.”
Kent Paisley for Golf Digest…”World No. 1 Lydia Ko?’s hot streak continues after capturing a win in her first start of 2023. The newlywed took home her second Aramco Saudi Ladies International title with a final-round 68 and a one-shot victory over Ladies European Tour stalwart Aditi Ashok? ?at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club. It’s the 26th victory of the 26-year-old’s career and the third in her last four starts.”
AP report…“Bernhard Langer matched Hale Irwin’s PGA Tour Champions victory record of 45 on Sunday, winning the Chubb Classic for the fifth time.”
Golfweek’s Beth Ann Nichols…“Lydia Ko isn’t the only top-three player in the world with a new looper this season. Minjee Lee will begin her 2023 campaign next week in Thailand with a different caddie.”
Michael McEwan for Bunkered…”Fresh from an impressive return to the tour at the Genesis Invitational, Tiger Woods has admitted that he hopes to play in all four major championships this year.”
AP report…”John Paramor, the mustachioed European tour rules official whose career spanned six decades, has died after a bout with cancer. He was 67.”

Jon Rahm posted his third win in 2023 and no one can argue that he is the hottest player in the world right now. After trading birdies and bogeys with Max Homa all day, Rahm took the lead with a few holes to play and never looked back, carding a stroke victory over Max. As Jon celebrated with his family, he wore his favorite timepiece, the Rolex Sky-Dweller in bright blue!
Name: Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller
Date: 2017 – Present
Case: 904L Oystersteel
Bezel: White Gold Fluted
Dial: Bright Blue
Movement: Calibre 9001, 40 Jewels
Power Reserve: 72 Hours
Glass: Saphire Crystal, Cyclops Lens
Waterproof: 100 Meters
Bracelet: Rolex Oyster, 904L Oystersteel
Price: $15,650 (~$24,500)
The Sky-Dweller is the most complicated watch that Rolex makes currently with a unique dual time zone design. The Rolex Sky-Dweller was introduced 10 years ago as a watch for world travelers. The case is on the larger side for Rolex at 42mm and made from Rolex’s own stainless steel, Oystersteel. The caseback is solid stainless steel and screws into the case for a 100 meter waterproof rating. On the right side of the case is the screw-down crown that features Rolex’s Twinlock double seal system.
Under a sapphire crystal is a Bright Blue dial with an off-center ring around the middle. The off-center ring tells the time of a second time zone in a 24-hour format. Around the dial are hour markers made from white gold and filled with Rolex’s Chromalight luminescent material for a bright blue glow in low light. Above each hour marker is a white, or red, square that indicates the current month. The date is at the 3 o’clock position and only needs to be set once per year as the Sky-Dweller is an annual calendar. It is engineered to distinguish between the months with 30 and 31 days so you only need to set it on March 1st each year.
On top of the case is the iconic fluted bezel that is crafted from Rolex’s own white gold alloy. White gold can fade over time and Rolex created their own foundry in order to produce a white gold that will keep its luster longer through everyday wear. The bezel also features Rolex’s Ring Command that works with the mechanical movement to set the date and time on the watch.
Rotating the bidirectional bezel into one of three positions allows you to set the local time, second time zone, or the month and date. This unique system gives you the ability too easily set a very complicated watch.
Internally the Sky-Dweller uses Rolex’s most complicated movement, the Calibre 9001. The 9001 is a self-winding automatic with the aforementioned annual calendar and Ring Command. It contains around 380 parts and that is a lot to package into its 33mm diameter. The 9001 is unique as it works with the bezel and that feature alone takes 60 parts to function correctly. Rolex designed and builds the 9001 completely in-house and it offers the wearer around 72hrs of power reserve. Like all Rolex movements the 9001 is COSC (Swiss Superlative Chronometer) certified to ensure it is extremely accurate through all temperatures and conditions.
Jon’s Sky-Dweller has the more casual design, the Oyster, bracelet. The Jubilee option is a little more flashy and formal in its look. Made from 3 solid, flat links of Oystersteel the bracelet is very durable and comfortable. A folding Oysterclasp brings the bracelet together and features Rolex’s Easylink extension, allowing you to adjust the band 5mm for the perfect fit. The Sky-Dweller is a popular watch among collectors and the Bright Blue dial is by far the most sought after. Rolex collector’s demand has pushed up the price of the blue Sky-Dweller to around $24,500 on the secondary market, almost $9,000 over its retail price.
