The Masters reached a dramatic conclusion earlier this year with Adam Scott claiming the fabled green jacket after a play-off. But fear not; there are still plenty of amazing tournaments out there for you to sink your teeth into.

Check out our list of future venues and dates of top golf tournaments to keep your eye out for in 2013.

U.S. Open, Ardmore, 10-16 June

We start with one of the four majors, and with the Masters now out of the way, the U.S Open is undoubtedly the tournament to see over the pond.

Held at the Merion Golf Club in Pennsylvania just outside of Philadelphia in June, the action will be played out on the Ardmore East Course — regularly voted as the best on the face of the earth.

American Webb Simpson will be looking to defend the title he won last year while Tiger Woods will no doubt be in the hunt for his first major win since 2008.

Five '90s boy bands we probably forgot about

I love boy bands unironically. Apparently, you guys do too, as evidenced by the fact that we still get visits to our 2012 April Fool's Day post announcing NSYNC's decision tour again (so, so sorry about that) and our post about the top five boy bands of the '90s.

LFO

LFO's first and biggest single, "Summer Girls," was totally nonsensical, completely weird, and awesomely '90s. The trio's debut album actually sold more than 2 million copies, a feat almost unheard of today. They had one other Billboard hit, "Girl on TV," which featured Jennifer Love Hewitt in the video. But the band will forever be known for that song with random lyrics: New Kids on the Block had a bunch of hits/Chinese food makes me sick/And I think it's fly when girls stop by for the summer/For the summer.
