In the aftermath of Jason Day's resounding win at the Players, one would think the predominant conversation in golf would center on the World No. 1 and his chances of capturing a second major championship at next month's U.S. Open at Oakmont.

Instead, it's the continued struggles of Jordan Spieth, who saw a promising start at the AT&T Byron Nelson dissolve over a disappointing Sunday. It's Phil Mickelson's involvement in an insider-trading investigation. And it's Tiger Woods, who hasn't played competitive golf in nine months, yet put enough of his game on display at a media day last week to come under renewed scrutiny.
