Rickie Fowler masters the sand, a golf Guinness World Record controversy, and a Miss Canada contestant's ace

Welcome to another edition of The Grind, where we’re giving these high-tops more thought. Rickie Fowler’s finishing flourish in Abu Dhabi added fuel to the fire that was ignited by Jordan Spieth at Kapalua. First, a long bunker hole out for eagle on No. 8. Then, a chip-in birdie that all but sealed the victory on No. 17. What do you think, Mars Blackmon?

That’s what we thought. While we consider switching over to the, um, high side, here’s what else is on our mind.
