Fresh start begins today for the PGA Tour
Only a few short weeks ago, Jordan Spieth was locking down the FedExCup for the 2015 season at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta at the TOUR Championship.
Spieth’s five PGA Tour wins, two Majors (Masters and U.S. Open), four second place finishes, and 15 top ten finishes in 25 events was truly a remarkable year.
Today, the slate is wiped clean as the 2016 PGA Tour schedule begins at the Frys.com Open at Silverado CC (North) in Napa, California. The PGA Tour uses a wrap-around schedule that begins today and will conclude again in Atlanta next September.
It is a new start also for the Scott Hamilton Golf Academy players and the new OnTour Golf team. Eight different players affiliated with PGA Tour golf coach Scott Hamilton are making starts to their 2016 seasons today.
Boo Weekley, Russell Henley, Chris Kirk, Brendon Todd and Ben Martin all were scheduled for morning start times on Thursday. Aaron Baddeley, Hudson Swafford, and Steven Bowditch have afternoon starts.
The 2015 season was a tremendous year for Hamilton's group of players as well. Multiple tour victories and two players on the Presidents Cup teams just to skim the accomplishments.
Additionally, Golf Digest named Hamilton the number two golf coach on the PGA Tour for the 2015 season as voted by PGA Tour players. Scott Hamilton is the Director of Golf at Cartersville Country Club. His Scott Hamilton Golf Academy now coaches many prominent golf professionals on the PGA Tour, Champions Tour, WEB.com Tour, and LPGA Tour. Hamilton also offers online instruction through the Nashville-based OnTourGolf.com. Use the menu at the top of this page to find the latest golf instruction links. Bartow Sports Zone regularly tracks the players affiliated with Scott Hamilton Golf Academy and shares instruction from OnTour Golf.
