Quick, what event in 2014 has had all four current major champions play? Hawaii? Nope. Torrey? Pebble? Nope. A World Golf Championship? Try again.
The answer is...Seminole. Yes, Seminole Golf Club, the pristine and very exclusive golf club in Juno Beach, Florida held its annual member-pro (where a member invites a pro (touring or club professional)) and if you get invited to play at Seminole...well, you don't turn it down. Doesn't matter who you are, you don't turn it down.

So among the pros lucky enough to be invited were the current major champions. And they even brought some hardware to boot (well, Adam Scott brought a green jacket, which let's be honest, is as cool as any golf trophy).
There aren't going to be many photos released from the event but we were lucky enough to get a few shots from Twitter.

We're not even sure who won, but with a field like this, you can bet it was a pretty incredible performance.

The first major championship of 2014 -- the Masters -- is just a little over one month away.
Today, COBRA announced its release of a limited-edition Green BiO CELL Driver to celebrate the year's first major. COBRA Golf's BiO CELL Driver, designed to help golfers Go Long, is equipped with MyFly8, SmartPad and BiO CELL E9 Face Technologies to help manage trajectory and provide unmatched distance.
COBRA will make 2,014 of these limited-edition drivers, which will be available at select retailers around the world beginning on March 15. Each driver is laser-marked sequentially 0001 of 2014 on the sole for authenticity.

"There is so much buzz in the golf community surrounding the first Major of the year, and the Limited Edition Driver helps bring some of that excitement to the COBRA Brand," said Tom Olsavsky, vice president of R&D. "This driver showcases our game-changing technologies, including MyFly8, SmartPad and E9 Face, that delivers increased distance, while the Limited Edition Green allows us to celebrate one of golf's premier events."
The MyFly8 technology allows golfers to adjust their trajectory to eight different loft settings, including 9.0 degrees, 9.5, 10.5, 11.5, 12.0, and three draw settings in 9.5 D, 10.5 D and 11.5 D. Utilizing SmartPad technology, the face angle will stay square at address regardless of the loft setting.
COBRA explains that the internal BiO CELL structure with E9 Face Technology removes weight from the crown, face and hosel and repositions it low and back to deliver a low CG and higher MOI for maximum distance. The repositioned weight provides a larger effective Sweet Zone to deliver longer and straighter drives, even on mis-hits.
The Limited Edition Green BiO CELL Driver (MAP $399) features an Aldila ATX Tour Green shaft, a COBRA Lamkin Ace 3GEN 360 grip and is available in right-handed (x-stiff, stiff and regular flexes) and left-handed (stiff and regular flex only) models. The Limited Edition grip, BiO CELL Headcover and wrench come in matching green and white.

Paula Creamer certainly has a flair for the dramatic.
On the second playoff hole Sunday against Azahara Munoz at the HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore, Creamer was faced with a 75-foot putt -- up and over a ridge in the center of a severely sloping green -- that if she could make, would have given her an eagle and an end to a four-year victory drought.

It's the kind of putt anyone would just hope to get close, but Creamer did much more than that. You'll just have to see it for yourself:
"It's one of those putts where if you just get it in the right spot, it's going to fall down," she said. "But I could stand there all day long and putt that and I don't think get it within six, seven feet."

Thank goodness she didn't need to stand there all day long. She just needed one attempt.
Oh, by the way, it's not the first time Creamer's shown the ability to make a long putt under pressure. Just check out what she did one day at the offices of Sports Illustrated:
Nothing but the bottom of the ... glass. And you've got to love the guy who peers out of his cubicle just as the ball rolls by.
Of the two shots, the one in the office might have been the more impressive -- mainly because it's so difficult to determine which direction berber grows. Usually it's towards the break room, so Creamer correctly read that big right-to-left turn at the end.
