Each Monday, we will post DFI’s Top-10 on Tour. This is generally speaking, and while recent play does have an impact on players shifting around, this list will more or less have the same players as the week before. Follow @DFIPGA for this article in a simple top-10 list that we will Tweet each Monday. AS OF WEEK 1 (TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS) 1. Brooks Koepka – I like to think it was our man Paul Block who inspired Koepka to win two majors after they got to meet at TPC Sawgrass earlier in the year. He’s back to #1 after... Read More

Notable Players with Thursday Afternoon/Friday Morning Tee Times: Tony... Read More
The Byron Nelson is one of those events on the PGA Tour with an iconic lineage. It was held at the TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas for the last 35 years, until this year. The 2018 version will be played at Trinity Forest, a links-style course nine miles from downtown Dallas. We all know what a links course can turn into if the wind is blowing, and it looks like that will be the major issue for the players this week. Rain will be a non-factor, but warm temperatures and north-Texas wind will make things tough. Let’s get to the... Read More
