Guide: This Week’s Pro Golf Tour Events


Here at Pro Golf Weekly, we publish consistent coverage of the PGA Tour, from previews and reporting to wrap-ups and reviews. As we move into the new season, we plan to provide similar coverage of a few of the other professional golf tours.

As we get closer to the first major of the season, you will be seeing much more consistent coverage (i.e. Primers, Power Picks, Odds) of both the European Tour and PGA Tour Champions.

With that in mind, one of the new regular pieces will be a quick rundown of the week’s professional golf tour events – PGA, Champions, European, LPGA, Web – on one page.

This week we have the PGA Tour at Torrey Pines for the Farmer’s Insurance Open; the Euro Tour is in Qatar for the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters; the LPGA Tour is down in the Bahamas for the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic; the PGA Tour Champions are off for the next couple of weeks, but will return for the Allianz Championship in Boca Raton on February 10th.
