Ready or not, the PGA Tour season begins this week, with the Safeway Open at Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, Ca. It's the first event of a seven-week stretch known as the wrap around season, which leads into the only true break in the schedule in December.

It's the first event in which players can earn FedEx Cup points, presenting a great opportunity for PGA Tour rookies and lesser known names to get a head start on the world's best, who normally don't return until January. But the Safeway features its share of marquee names, like Phil Mickelson, who is in the field for the second straight season, searching for his first victory since the 2013 Open Championship. Keegan Bradley, Bill Haas, Bryson DeChambeau and defending champion Brendan Steele are also in the field.
