    How can we watch this?? Just the GC?<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Yes. No pga Tour live until the desert classic. <br />
    <br />
    I just signed up last night and thought they might have a little extra coverage. No luck.

    Such a good field this year. The tournament has really gotten its mojo back.

    I was surprised to see Champ in the field. I had always thought it was for the winners from the prior season, not the prior calendar year. Guess I was wrong.<br />
    <br />
    I believe he won an event, didn't he? Sanderson Farms, I think.<br />
    <br />
    Right, but that was in the CURRENT season (2018-2019). I was saying I had previously thought this event was for winners of the PRIOR season (2017-2018). I looked on the website. It just says "champions from the prior year", so as I said, I was wrong in my understanding.<br />

    It's always been this way. The Tournament of Champions used to be played at LaCosta three weeks after The Masters. If you won the week before (at say New Orleans) you got added to the field.

    Kevin Na withdrew minutes before his tee time with a finger injury.

    <br />
    <br />
    The 2019 rules required him to pull his finger out and play faster. He couldn’t.<br />
    <br />
    In other news, a poor end to the front nine for Cameron Champion. Easily done though, as I once 5 putted the 9th at Kapalua. <br />

    Well that was a surprise checking the leaderboard after being in here as the second coming is even par.<br />
    <br />
    Anyway, how is Rory off the tee so far? Is he getting along with the driver?

    What putter is Rory using?<br />
    <br />
    DJ to repeat.<br />
    <br />
    Fun fact: that island off in the distance used to be Leper Colony, and I think there are actually still a few of them left.

    I was lucky enough to play the Plantation course three times two years ago. I played from the tips twice, and from the next tees up one time so I could play with a group. It adds a whole new level to watching a tournament. <br />

    I got the new NBC Gold Golf package but I can't seem to find the tournament. Does anybody know how to watch this on mobile?

    This tournament is not part of the Gold package. If you have a login from a cable or satellite provider you can use the regular NBC Sports app

    These Top Tracer numbers, at least the peak height, are way off. I’ve always thought they were, and now I know for sure. DJ just hit a low bullet that said 130ft peak height. Then Rory hit a standard looking drive and it said 60ft peak height.

    What is with that font? Everything is too big and too rectangular. Colors are a little too bright and have nearly zero transparency

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
