I myself am excited for the new PGA Tour season. There are so many great story lines ready for 2017. Some of my top stories surrounding players and events are as followed.
- 1) Tiger Woods – He made golf what it is. That’s why I place him at the top of the list.
- 2) Jason Day – How will the current #1 return coming off of a back injury.
- 3) The Masters – Tournament specific. This is always the most anticipated event.
- 4) Rory Mcilroy – Needs Masters to complete career grand slam and is also the defending Fed Ex Cup and Tour Championship winner.
- 5) Phil Michelson – Needs US Open to complete the career grand slam.
- 6) Dustin Joshnson – How does the defending POY back up his season.
- 7) Jordan Spieth – His down season still has 2 wins. What will he produce in 2017?
- 8). Who will step onto the stage and make a name for themselves.
- 9) Who will end the season as World Number 1?
- 10) 62 in a major?
The game of golf is in a nice position right now to produce some great headlines. Being the golf fan I am, this season feels like it will be one of the best ones yet.
Jason Day is the man to beat still. His closest competitors are ready to knock him off his ranking and have narrowed the decent gap he had before he got injured. Will Tiger Woods show the world he can still win at the highest level. Golf is hard, even for Tiger Woods. So it’s realistic to think he may not win for awhile.
Stayed tuned for some insight into what could be the greatest season in golf.
