Twofer Tuesday: Safeway Open

This week Twofer Tuesday hoists a keg for the Safeway Open, where Kevin Tway is the defending hoister.

Defending champion Kevin Tway

The North Course at Silverado Resort & Spa is pretty familiar to us all by now. Johnny Miller's baby -- he updated the course in 2011 -- is a par-72, 7166-yard track in the midst of California's Napa Valley (that's very scenic wine country, for those of you unfamiliar with American geography) that rewards first-timers as often as Tour vets. Defending champion Kevin Tway is a classic example.

While past history is no guarantee of future performance, either in financial vehicles or golf picks, I'm going to gamble on the vets this week. I can't do any worse than I have recently.
  • My Top10er this week is Ryan Moore. Wine country seems to set well with Ryan as he has played well here the last few years, culminating in a playoff loss last year. He hasn't played since the BMW Championship so he might be a bit rusty, but Silverado is a great place to knock off that rust.
  • And my winner is Justin Thomas. While he hasn't played this stop in a couple of years, he's been in good form this year with a win at the BMW and a T3 at the TOUR Championship. And while he's never won here, those last two stops here were Top10s. This could be where he gets the new season off to a roaring start.
Since this event is on the West Coast, we get some primetime golf. GC's coverage starts Thursday evening at 5pm ET and PGA TOUR LIVE starts streaming at a later-than-usual 10am ET. Let's see who hoists the keg this year!
