PGA | Must-Haves | RSM Classic

The last regular stop for the year on the PGA Tour in 2018, and the conclusion of the wrap-around portion of the season, brings us to a multiple-course format at the RSM Classic – held annually at the Sea Island Golf Club in idyllic St. Simons Island, GA. Across the pond, the European Tour is attracting a pretty heavy field for their version of the DP World TOUR Championship, and with many golfers choosing to attend that (or perhaps start their holiday season a few weeks early) it’s not surprising a fairly meek field will tee up in the Golden...

PGA | Must-Haves | Mayakoba Golf Classic

This week, the wild early season for the PGA Tour ends up in Playa del Carmen in Mexico at El Camaleón Golf Club. Last year, Patton Kizzire edged Rickie Fowler by one stroke on Sunday to capture his first PGA Tour victory. With the field loaded with Web.com graduates and less-known Tour players, this event – like the rest in this first portion of the wraparound season on the PGA Tour – provides a unique opportunity for those guys to capture a PGA Tour victory. Before Kizzire, guys like Pat Perez (2016), Graeme McDowell (2015), and Charley Hoffman (2015) won... Read More

PGA | Must-Haves | Shriners Hospitals for Children Open

The PGA Tour finished its Asian track this week with another impressive win for young star Xander Schauffele at the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai. Meanwhile, another tournament on Tour was taking place in Jackson, Mississippi (Sanderson Farms Championship). Young bomber Cameron Champ began the year off for the few inevitable Web.com grad winners on Tour from this impressive class. With a dude averaging about 350 off-the-tee closing out tourneys this early in his career, there is reason to believe that the trend of players getting longer and longer on Tour won’t stop – and don’t think it won’t stop being...

PGA | Must-Haves | WGC-HSBC Champions

The PGA Tour makes the jump down south to Shanghai, China, for the WGC-HSBC Champions this week. Brooks Koepka made headlines after winning the second CJ Cup, jumping his best friend Dustin Johnson and becoming the World #1. Things become very interesting heading to Shanghai, as not just former and current #1’s – DJ and Koepka – will be showing up for the season’s first WGC event, but recent World #1 Justin Rose will be in the field as well. Rory McIlroy slides under-the-radar given the caliber of this field, showcasing just how exciting this October event is. Be sure... Read More

PGA | Must-Haves | The CJ Cup at Nine Bridges

The Tour’s Asian swing continues this week as we head to Jeju Island in South Korea for the 2nd edition of the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges. Eventual-winner Justin Thomas set the tournament record on day one last year by shooting a 63 – the lowest round of the week by far. The next lowest round was Marc Leishman’s 66 on the same day. In fact, no one would shoot better than a 67 on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Nine Bridges (Par 72, 7,256 yards) ain’t no joke. This no-cut event made its way into the PGA Tour’s schedule last...
