COLLEGE BASKETBALL
  • The tiny Spanish island of Gran Canaria is home to a tour operator that handles college basketball teams' off-season trips—and to an academy that DEVELOPS PROSPECTS. Is there a link between booking tours and landing recruits?

NBA
  • Distant and accessible to only a few, the game's most dominant defender and underrated superstar desperately cultivates greatness, if not an image. He also is giving a second wind to the Spurs' dynasty, the best bet to unseat the Warriors

Patrick Kane
  • On the ice, it all comes so easily for Patrick Kane. Life off it is more complicated, whether he's behaving immaturely—or worse—or navigating a hometown that bred him to be the best but can also bring out his worst

MY BAG: Adam Scott

"With a shorter-length putter, I'm thinking about being tall when I set up.I'm essentially putting with my left hand only and am making an exaggerated shoulder rock back and through."

TECH TALK

Crowning Achievement

Ping G driver

Like the popular G30, Ping's new driver series—the G (right), G LS Tec and G SF Tec—includes loft adjustability (+/-1°), a high-balance-point shaft and aerodynamic ridges on the crown. The ridges, along with larger indentations on the back, combine with the G's more rounded transition from face to crown to reduce drag by 37% compared with the G30. That means faster swings and up to four yards more carry. The new crown is also eight grams lighter, which lets Ping drop extra mass low and rearward for a higher MOI. Compared with the G, the LS Tec spins 350 rpm less, while the SF Tec has up to nine yards of fade correction. Bubba Watson (using a bright-pink version of the G) and Louis Oosthuizen (G LS Tec) have both won with the new drivers. $400.

DRIVEN

Improved aerodynamics helps players to swing faster and generate more ball speed.
