The two-week Texas Swing wrapped up Sunday at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, and I hit on my fourth winner of the season in Kevin Kisner. He was priced at +2500 at Bovada to win entering the tournament. My reasoning for picking him was: "He's a good shot-maker and this is a shot-makers' course. Prior to the T10 last year he was T5 in 2015 and is averaging 67.75 in his past eight rounds at Colonial." This time, Kisner was first in the field in fairways hit (40 of 56) and second in greens hit in regulation (53 of 72).

I truly expected former Florida Gator Billy Horschel to become a Top-10 player on the PGA Tour when he won the 2014 Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup. Alas, Horschel really hasn't been that player again. Perhaps he found whatever was missing on Sunday at the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson from the TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas in Irving, Texas -- the final staging of that event at the course.

I'm thankful every day for living in a free country like the United States. Why do I mention this in a golf story? At age 21, Si Woo Kim of South Korea became the youngest winner of the Players Championship on Sunday with a closing 3-under 69 and three-shot victory. Kim got $1.89 million for his second career PGA Tour win, a five-year Tour exemption and three-year exemption to the Masters Tournament.

Frankly, the two most interesting things to happen in golf this past weekend didn't involve Brian Harman winning the Wells Fargo Championship with a 30-foot birdie putt on the final hole to deny world No. 1 Dustin Johnson the chance at his fourth straight victory.

I think the Zurich Classic of New Orleans was a pretty big success with its new two-man team format, and I'm quite certain that the tournament will stick with that going forward. It really did seem like the players were more engaged while also having fun playing with a friend or countryman. Many players said they chose friends on the Tour rather than research whose game best complemented their own. Here's hoping the Tour allows more creativity with format changes at other events.

We had another first-time winner on the PGA Tour this season Sunday at the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio as Kevin Chappell brought a one-shot lead into the final round and held on for once. He made an eight-foot birdie putt at the 72nd hole to beat Brooks Koepka by a shot. Chappell had a pretty memorable post-victory celebration - I recommend checking it out.

I didn't know a heck of a lot about PGA Tour pro Wesley Bryan before he won the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town in Hilton Head, S.C., on Sunday, but he has just become one of my most-liked golfers. Why? To celebrate his first PGA Tour win, two-year Tour exemption, $1.7 million winner's check and spot in next year's Masters, Bryan, proudly wearing his plaid jacket that also went to the tournament winner, took a selfie of himself and his wife celebrating at Taco Bell afterward. That's awesome.

It figures! I have been picking Sergio Garcia to win one major each year since I started doing golf previews here at Doc's. The Spaniard probably was the best player still without one, and it had to come sooner or later. Sadly, I didn't really touch on El Nino at the Masters, but he won the green jacket by beating Justin Rose on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff Sunday in what was some compelling golf to watch - although the TV ratings were way down. I guess Americans didn't care as much to see a guy from Spain and one from England duel on the back-nine.

How good is Dustin Johnson's life right now? He's married to the gorgeous Paulina Gretzky and gets to hang around father-in-law and the greatest hockey player ever in Wayne Gretzky whenever he wants. Oh, and DJ's playing some pretty decent golf these days. Johnson solidified himself as the Masters favorite by winning the World Golf Championships-Match Play in Austin on Sunday for his third straight tournament win - no one had done that on Tour since Rory McIlroy in 2014.

I honestly didn't much consider another Aussie at Arnie's tournament, but Marc Leishman, a guy I do usually pick to win an event or two each year because the talent is there, got his second career Tour win. He entered the final round three shots out of the lead but seized it with an epic 51-foot eagle putt on the par-5 16th on Sunday. Leishman, one of the Tour's top-rated putters, then got up-and-down on the final two holes to finish at 11-under 277 and win by a shot over Americans Charley Hoffman and Kevin Kisner - they both shot final-round 73s as the third-round co-leaders. Kisner and Hoffman started the final round at 11 under par.

Quick, name me the best Canadian golfer in PGA Tour history. Yeah, all I could think of was former Masters champion Mike Weir. He has really struggled in recent years, though. Canada currently has just six full-time PGA Tour players, but the country finally added another victory last week at the Valspar Championship in the Tampa Bay area.

I'm taking credit for another victory last week at the inaugural World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship. My singular value pick was Gary Woodland because he can hit it a mile and that tournament in Mexico City was played at the highest altitude ever for a PGA Tour event. Woodland was +3300 but finished T38. I also mentioned that I liked the prop of Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth at +300 vs. the field (-450).

Yep, I outsmarted myself last week. I was leaning toward Rickie Fowler as my choice to win the first stop of the Florida Swing, the Honda Classic, but I was too tempted by Swede Russell Knox's history at PGA National and his nice price of +3000. Yet there was Fowler teeing off on Sunday in Palm Beach with a four-shot lead. He was far from sharp in his final-round 71, but he won by the margin he started the day with (although the lead was down to one shot briefly).

I'm giving myself credit for a half-win last week at the Genesis Open at historic Riviera outside Los Angeles. When I wrote that preview last Tuesday here at Doc's, there hadn't yet been a Bovada prop posted that paired both Adam Scott and Dustin Johnson against the field. I said I thought one of the two would win, but that I'd go with Scott at that point simply because he was better value at a longer price. That said, Bovada did post one of those props by Wednesday.

Did we have an official changing of the guard in golf over the weekend? One could look at it that way as 23-year-old Jordan Spieth continued to set records, while 41-year-old Tiger Woods had to pull out of his next two PGA Tour events because his back still isn't right.

No male golfer from Japan has won one of golf's four Grand Slam tournaments, but I'm thinking about going to one of Doc's promoted sportsbooks right now and dropping down some money on Hideki Matsuyama to win a major in 2017 as that guy is in the midst of a tremendous stretch of golf.

It was no secret on the PGA Tour that many of the more veteran golfers expected a breakout season for Jon Rahm, who is from Spain but played at Arizona State. The guy was one of the best collegians ever as the only two-time winner of the Ben Hogan Award (in 2015 and 2016), which recognizes the outstanding male amateur and collegiate golfer of the year. He also won the Jack Nicklaus Award in 2016 and was a four-time All-American.

I'll just cut to the chase here and say that while I've heard of Hudson Swafford, I probably couldn't have told you anything about him before he was the surprise winner of the CareerBuilder Challenge on Sunday to start the PGA Tour's West Coast Swing.

I have zero problem admitting when I was flat-out wrong, and boy was I on Justin Thomas this past weekend at the Sony Open as the PGA Tour wrapped up its two-event Hawaii Swing. I wasn't real high on Thomas after winning the SBS Tournament of Champions the week before because only one player had ever swept both events in one season and the courses are very different.

Your early leader to be the breakout superstar of this PGA Tour season? That would be Justin Thomas, a good friend of Jordan Spieth's -- both those guys are from a talented high school Class of 2011 (not the same school) alongside Daniel Berger, Patrick Rodgers, Ollie Schniederjans and Emiliano Grillo. Thomas and Spieth also dueled in college when Thomas was at Alabama and Spieth at Texas.
