The first tournament of the year finished the same as it did last year. Stuart Appleby stormed back in bad weather to win back-to-back Mercedes Championships, shooting a 6-under to finish at -21. The winds and rain made were the real story. Uncharaceristically, Vijay triple bogeyed the 13th after hooking his drive and never could really rebound. Ernie was a shot back on the 18th, only to slice his drive OB. Jonathan Kaye had a chance to tie on the par-5 18th, but kinda a flubbed his chip shot. Tiger ended up tied for third at -19.

Given his year last year, it’s pretty rare to see Vijay blow a comfortable lead on the last day. Might being No.1 harder than we think?
