While there's plenty of young talent on the men's and women's tours, what rookie Jordan Spieth did this year was stuff of legend. He became the first teen to win a Tour event in more than 80 years, racked up three runners-up, six other top 10s and nearly $4 million in earnings. He also became the first player since Tiger Woods to begin the year with no status and reach the Tour Championship (where he tied for second), and earned a spot on the U.S. Presidents Cup team.

Some of his wins might be considered instant-classics, but there's nothing traditionally classic about the way Phil Mickelson plays, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

In the third round of the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, Matt Jones stepped to the par-3 11th hole, and sprayed one way right, missing the to the right of the creek that was guarding the green.

While players were being interviewed after their rounds at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, something way more interesting was happening just a few feet behind them (or possibly even closer).

So, you smiling, hairless man, please enjoy this award as much as you did that awkward face time.

The Auburn residing newlyweds (and their little dog) are a hit on social media, but it was their recent trip to Hawaii that sewed up. While Amanda looks fairly comfortable in the rainforest, Jason summed it up best when he said, 'Generally speaking, I don’t do much hiking.'

While there were a few 59s fired on the Web.com circuit this year, it seemed certain we would see another season come and go without a sighting of golf's magic number on the PGA Tour.
