Guide: This Week’s Pro Golf Tour Events


It’s Wednesday, and time for our quick rundown of the week’s professional golf tour events – PGA, Champions, European, LPGA,

It’s a nearly-full schedule on tap this week. The PGA Tour is on the central coast of Northern Cal for the star-studded AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am; the European Tour is in Malaysia for the Maybank Championship; the PGA Tour Champions are in Boca Raton, Florida for the Allianz Championship; and the Tour is teeing it up down in South America for the Club Colombia Championship.
