The resumption of the PGA Tour would feel like a mood without Tiger Woods

FORT WART, Texas – You have to do a hard search to find a good slip from the covid-1p epidemic.

Some business crises have occurred because they have supplied us with the things we need.

In the case of golf – especially the PGA Tour – the first four events that are part of the resume will enjoy the most star-studded fields in their own history within the next month.

It will begin with the Charles Swab Challenge at this week’s Colonial Country Club, where the top five players in the world and eight of the top ten will start with the first round on Thursday.

If you miss golf for the last three months – due to epidemics and if every other sport is suspended – you may not want to miss this week’s Charles Swab Challenge.

It may be a bit insulting to say, but the Colon Colonial and next week’s tournaments, the RBC Heritage and Rocket Mortgage Championships, which are in their second year of existence, were after the tour schedule even though the top players usually avoid them.

RBC always comes the week after the Masters, so it’s a tough drawing for the stars.

The Travelers Championship, which is batting third in this new schedule, is usually played after the anxious U.S. Open week and has been an event ignored by the Stars until recent years.

Not this year though. They will have their own partnership in the best of the games in all four events.

As most of the world’s top players are starving to return to the finals, we see them competing for the first time since the game ended after the opening round of the March 12 Players Championship.

No. 1 Ryan McIlroy will cover it this week, along with Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, John Rahm and Dustin Johnson.

Phil Mickelson, Ricky Fowler, Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and several other stars are on the field.

The biggest name is the biggest name in the lost game – Tiger Woods. Whether he will play in any of the first four events before the Memorial game next month is a major part of his schedule.

Michael Toth, director of the Charles Swab Tournament, expressed some hope that Woods could play the colony, saying, “We want to like Tiger, but we’re going to have to play our best without him.”

The tournament managers of the other three no-spectator events have a similar attitude. They would love to get Woods but their fields are strong without him and the TV audience can’t influence his presence in one way or another because the way tournaments seem to have so many eye touches.

With the exception of Woods, the only big names not to be named on the field this week are some of the non-American players like Tommy Fleetwood, because the COVID-19 rule is in place so anyone who comes to the U.S. on the counternet can come out? 14 days. Aussie Adam Scott is also avoiding the first several events.

McIlroy and Koepka and other big names at Hilton Head, SC’s Harbor Town Golf Links have nothing to avoid with plans to play RBC Heritage next week.

McLaughlin, Thomas and several other big hitters made headlines for two weeks traveling outside of Hartford, Conn.

The last of the first four, the Detroit Rocket Mortgage Championship is also expected on the stout field.

Players who have been forced to take breaks due to the epidemic are hungry for competition.

The only golf we’ve seen since mid-March is the Cavid-19 relief benefit from two charity events – a Seminole shootout with McLaughlin, Johnson, Fowler and Matthew Wolf, and a medalist match between Woods and Pyton Manning and Mickelson, Med and Tom Brady.

The medalist match draws record TV ratings, which gives you an idea of ​​the thirsty golf and sports fans should watch live action right now.

There are feelings and expectations for a season two opener this week. Neither the NBA, nor the NHL, nor the MLB have started backing up again. Until the end, golf gives us something to look forward to.
