A Look At The PGA Tour Schedule For February

Debby Wong- USA TODAY Sports

The first month of the golf season is behind us and what a month it was! The year started with Dustin Johnson taking the title in the wind blown and shortened Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Johnson improved his record to 3-0 in events that are cut to 54 holes due to weather related issues. He also notched a PGA Tour victory for the sixth consecutive season, second only to Phil Mickelson who has a streak of nine consecutive years with a win. This tournament was an odd start to the season with all the wind related delays.

The second tournament of 2013 was the Sony Open, which brought us the rise of Russell Henley, who won his PGA Tour debut as a rookie member. Henley birdied the final five holes on Sunday to get his first career win and recorded the third best score in PGA Tour history for a 72 hole tournament.

The next stop was the Humana Challenge, which provided an absolutely insane Sunday afternoon. Scott Stallings was leading the tournament by five strokes going into Sunday and found himself out of the three way playoff that was needed to crown a champion. Brian Gay beat Charles Howell III on the second playoff hole to get his first tour win of the season.

The Farmers Insurance Open, still in progress at the time of this writing, has Tiger Woods at the top of his game and easily leading the pack at the North and South courses of Torrey Pines. Another event that was affected by weather, the tournament was delayed on day three due to a dense fog that just would not lift for Saturday golf. The tournament will finish on Monday due to weather delays.

With an exciting first month behind us, let’s take a look at the five tournaments that will be played, either partially or in their entirety in the month of February.
