As you probably heard, the PGA Tour season kicks off on Thursday at the
While it isn't a full fledged PGA Tour field (come on, 28 guys?) , it is past winners and it does have a pretty solid group of attendees, including Steve Stricker, Kenny Perry, Sean O'Hair, Y.E. Yang and Geoff Ogilvy.
Along with those are some other intriguing names, like Ryan Moore (is this his breakout season?), Zach Johnson (is he still rocking the white belt/pink shirt combo?), Retief Goosen (I was worried he had passed away!) and Lucas Glover (Still waiting for one sound bite by this guy that will interest me).
The joy of the PGA Tour season is it really never ends. There is time away, especially for the bigger names, but you can only hibernate for a couple of weeks if you don't want to miss any intriguing golf.
So, the big question is this ... come Thursday, will golf be the big story in the golf world (naturally), or will Tiger Woods still be the big story in the golf world? A reasonable guess is Tiger, since he has been the domination story in the sports world for the past month or so, but it would probably help the PGA Tour if a decently big name could come in and win this Sunday, hopefully pushing the headlines towards actual golf and away from jersey chasing females.
No matter, I think I speak for most golf fans when I say, "PGA Tour season is back? I couldn't be happier."
