Every sporting spectacle has its own way of launching its next campaign. The lighting of the Olympic torch. Opening day in April. Week 1 in September. For the PGA TOUR that grand opening happens each year in October at Silverado Resort and Spa. This year the 2016-17 season got underway on October 13th at 7:20 AM local time with players going off the first and tenth tees. Robert Garrigus and Brian Harmon each launched their first shots of the year and with that a new season was underway.
Plenty of action lay ahead for golf fans, music enthusiasts, food and wine connoisseurs alike. The first hole in one of the PGA TOUR season was made just 45 minutes into that crisp Thursday morning. The bands rocked, Phil thrilled and ultimately Brendan Steele emerged victorious on Sunday afternoon. World renowned chefs frequented the grounds of Silverado making the Safeway Open a fitting spectacle to kick off the new PGA TOUR season. Many say Happy New Year in January, golf fans however know that the new year begins in October at the Safeway Open!
