PGA Tour Season Begins


By Rick Horrow and Karla Swatek

January 7, 2013

The PGA Tour season is underway with its first tournament of 2013, the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. Though world number one Rory McIlroy skipped the season’s opening event, he’s certain to be the main topic of conversation in the golf world this year.

McIlroy finally reached #1 in 2012, and it’s likely he’ll stay there in 2013. He also finally looks like the true heir to Tiger Woods, with the wherewithal to pass Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 Majors. In 2012 he won $8 million on course, added a second Major, was Player of the Year, and signed a $250 million deal with Nike.

More importantly for U.S. golf fans, McIlroy last month reaffirmed his commitment to the American Tour by purchasing an $11 million home in South Florida. If the Northern Irishman can continue his golf tear, the sky is the limit for on- and off-course winnings.
