Scott McCarron says he's sorry he used the words "cheat," "Phil," and "Mickelson" in the same sentence last week. McCarron says he has apologized personally to Mickelson, the No. 2-ranked golfer in the world, and that they are now on the same side in all things having to do with golf clubs, grooves and even Ping Eye 2s, which are legal but only thanks to a legal loophole. Oh, and the controversial Ping Eye 2 wedge that Mickelson used last week? It's still in play. Welcome to the "groovy" Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club, where McCarron told reporters that he talked to Mickelson for 10 minutes Tuesday after a previously scheduled players' meeting.

Golf is not all Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. Golf is Ted Tryba too. Golf is not all Millionaires' Row, golf is not always flying your own plane to the venue and buzzing the course later on your way home with first money. Golf is pulling into the clubhouse parking lot with an overheating engine, the air conditioning broken down and a grinding noise coming from the motor.

On a wall not far from where Scott McCarron was talking Friday hung a makeshift Masters leaderboard, overloaded with what appeared to be an honor roll of past majors champions: Norman, Janzen, Price, Love, Langer, Olazabal. McCarron's was up there too, prompting one intrepid reporter to clear his throat to pose the question that somehow, some way, had to be asked. "Scott, don't be offended by this . . ." the audacious query began before McCarron, probably figuring what was coming, cut him off.
