The New Season Already

Yeah, the "off season" lasted three whole days... if you're liberal in your definition of "off season." But here we are, and the Tour is back in action at the Safeway Open.

Phil Mickelson

Okay, here's the skinny: The Safeway Open is held in the Napa Valley (California) at the Silverado Resort & Spa (North), a 7166 yard par-72 layout of which Johnny Miller is part owner and also the course redesigner. As a result he serves as the host of the event, and most of the players love what he's done with the place.

The defending champion is Brendan Steele, but he'll have his hands full this week. As you have no doubt heard, Presidents Cuppers Phil Mickelson, Adam Hadwin and Emilio Grillo are also teeing it up... and Grillo is the the 2015 champ at this event. Former #1 amateur Maverick McNealy makes his pro debut at the Safeway, Sangmoon Bae is making his Tour premiere after serving his mandatory military stint in South Korea, and of course several of the Web.com Tour grads will be playing this week as well.

PGATOUR.com lists the TV times as 5:30pm-8:30pm ET on GC each day, today through Sunday. Most of the players should be chomping at the bit to get back on the course but I'll be interested to see how the Cuppers do after such a busy month or so. If Phil can continue his good play, he just might get his first win since the 2013 Open.
