Hittin the Links While most of the country was watching the Super Bowl, there was a bit of golf going on this weekend. Stateside, Hideki Matsuyama won his second consecutive Phoenix Open in a playoff over Webb Simpson, dispatching the U.S. Open champ after four playoff holes. Across the pond in the U.A.E., Sergio Garcia captured his 12th career European Tour victory, going wire-to-wire in Dubai. Among the field of vanquished competitors was Tiger Woods, who dropped out before the second round with back spasms.

We'll take a look at all of that plus an update from he USGA, a check-in on Nike Golf, and a stroll through the 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale.
