This Week in Golf: PGA Tour Season Opener (yes you read that correctly), Nick Faldo’s Champions Tour Debut, LPGA Tour & More

This week marks the beginning of the PGA Tour season.  Is that as strange to you as it is to me?  Personally, its football season for me and I still consider the beginning of the Tour season to be the first week of January.  BUT, players like my friend Kevin Foley, a Web.com Tour graduate who just got his Tour card, have an opportunity to get started early.  2014 FedEx Cup points start to accrue this week. Its a great opportunity.

On the Champions Tour Sir Nick Faldo is making his debut.  I’m sure his hair will look exactly the same as it has for the last 25 years.
