Jan. 7, 2021 2:35 AM EST

KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Justin Thomas and Xander Schauffele were discussing the quality of a certain golf shot, not belonging to either one of them, when the conversation turned into the self-deprecating variety. “If you want to know how to hook a 3-wood into the garbage, I can help with...

C.T. Pan set a Masters record of sorts by having to wait 571 days from the time he qualified by winning the RBC Heritage until hitting his opening tee shot at Augusta National.
