It's marvellous to see Adam Scott, one of life's gentlemen, back to his best. What's also pleasing is that he's doing it with a conventional putter.
The void left by Tiger Woods will never be filled by anybody in the current top six of the world ranking - Jordan Speith, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Bubba Watson and Ricky Fowler are ahead of Scott - but it makes for good competition.
With Phil Mickelson also performing well, the last few tournaments in America have been well above the standard for this time of year.
Scott's back-to-back victories were the best possible rebuttal of the old adage that nice guys never win.
In a previous life I was privileged to get up close and personal to many of golf's biggest stars - both male and female.
Although in both cases I must stress only in a working capacity.
Scott's success has led me to reflect how many genuinely decent people there are in the sport.
Perhaps it's all to do with the ethos of golf, and the requirement for respect that is drummed in at an early age.
Woods, I have to say, was not approachable for mere mortals, but the pressures on him in a media-obsessed age were unbelievable.
And that's even before he started to dabble in, ahem, extra-curricular activities.
Tiger was Mickelson's nemesis, but Phil, despite his stardom, gives hours of his time to his fans and is a helpful interviewee.
Many of the top golfers, male and female, are giving of their time away from the course.
Some, such as the 1999 Open winner Paul Lawrie, are exceptional. The leg-up he and his Foundation give to young people in Scotland is way beyond the call of duty.
An avid Aberdeen football fan, he also a sponsor of the club's women's side.
There are, inevitably, a few who don't live up to the image they like to portray.
All smiles and bonhomie for the cameras and galleries, the other side of their personalities doesn't take long to emerge away from the spotlight.
All in all though, golf fans can be assured there is an abundance of decency. Even at the very top, where the potential for ignorance and arrogance is obvious.
Golf is unlike some other sports I could mention - but won't unless you force me to say football.
