CONTENTS 2013 EVENTS WELCOME W www.pgatour.com FROM THE EDITOR


We’re halfway to big changes on the PGA TOUR as the 2013 season steams toward the FedExCup Playoffs and a quick transition to the new 2013-2014 hybrid schedule format. The 2013 season has been highlighted by Tiger


Woods’ return to prominence as the No. 1 player in the world. Woods won for an eighth time at Torrey Pines (seven in the Farmers Insurance Open and once in the U.S. Open) and the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard, to tie Sam Snead’s mark for most victories at one event. He also won for a third time this season, at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, a mere seventh victory at Doral, and for the second time at THE PLAYERS Championship. Additionally, Adam Scott broke through for his first major title by winning the Masters Tournament in a playoff with Angel Cabrera. That leaves us to anxiously await the U.S. Open


at Merion, the British Open at Muirfield and the PGA Championship at Oak Hill. Then come the Playoffs with traditional venues TPC Boston (Deutsche Bank Championship) and East Lake


Golf Club (TOUR


Championship by Coca-Cola) and returning site Liberty National (The Barclays) and new site Conway Farms (BMW Championship). Much of the focus on this late summer slate centers


on the Playoffs and The Presidents Cup. But the concurrent Web.com Tour Finals—four similar events to conclude that Tour’s season—will draw new interest as they help determine 50 players who move on to the new schedule for 2013-2014. In this new world, the following season begins Oct. 10, two weeks after the final Web.com Finals event and the week following The Presidents Cup. In this issue, the second 2013 edition of the Official


PGA TOUR Essential Guide, we update who’s been hot early in the season, dig deeper on the tournaments remaining on the PGA TOUR and Champions Tour and profile the winners. We also check in with PGA TOUR Canada and NEC Series–PGA TOUR Latinoamérica and offer a look at the best courses in the world and the travel possibilities that take you to some of the far reaches of the globe. ■
