Safeway Open 2016: Tee Times, TV Schedule, Prize Money

Phil Mickelson Headlines Safeway Open
The new PGA Tour season kicks off this week in Napa, California, with Phil Mickelson headlining the field.

If you blinked, you may have missed the one-week offseason for the PGA Tour. The new 2016-17 season kicks off with the Safeway Open in Napa, California. Phil Mickelson headlines the field for the opening event, but it's who won't be there that has been the big story so far.

Tiger Woods committed to the event last Friday, then withdrew on Monday, citing that his game was "vulnerable." Woods and Mickelson were reportedly going to be paired together in the opening two rounds. Mickelson will now tee off with defending champion Emiliano Grillo and Bill Haas at 12:40 p.m. on Thursday.
