Happy Holidays to all. I hope you all got what you hoped for. Not much happened in the world of golf , so we'll be brief.

Brandt Snedeker and Boo Weekley won the ADT Golf Skills Challenge in a playoff.

In the final of the worse-ball portion of the contest, Snedeker and Weekly initially tied finalists J.B. Holmes and Kenny Perry at par, forcing a playoff on the 305-yard, par-4, 14th hole.

Snedeker and Weekley, who split $314,000 in total prize money, gained an edge when Holmes' drive landed next door on the 15th tee. Holmes put them into further trouble by hitting into a trap 46 feet from the hole.

The champions sank a three-foot putt to win $200,000 for the reverse scramble portion of the event. Holmes made a six-foot putt for par, but Perry's putt skimmed past the hole, ending it.

Snedeker and Weekley set themselves apart from the rest of the field by winning three of the first six skills challenges -- the bunker shot, chip shot and trouble shot.

The other three were the long drive, mid-iron and short iron.

Well, that's it for this week. I'll be taking next week off, but will be back in January with results from the SBS Championship and the Africa Open.
