2011 Golf Season Opener

Kapalua CourseThere are 2 day’s left until the 2011 PGA Tour begins! If you have any bold predictions about the season make them now or forever hold your peace. This years PGA Tour will kick off in Hawaii with the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. This is a New Year and a new sponsor; Hyundai has taken over as the sponsor from Mercedes-Benz. Last year’s tournament winner, Geoff Ogilvy won the past 2 years and is looking to defend his title. Prior to that Stuart Appleby had a good track record winning the tournament from 2004 to 2006. The tournament will be held at the Plantation Course at the Kapalua Resort in Maui. All eyes will be on Graeme McDowell who had a stellar year last year starting at #40 in the world rankings and jumping to #5 for this year. Let’s also not forget about Ernie El’s who is fresh off a victory win at the South African Open Championship. If you want to catch this on TV you can check it out on the golf channel starting Thursday the 6th at 5:30 pm ET. Let the games begin!
