Welcome to 2019, where the Rules of Golf have been reshaped and the year’s major venues are worth salivating over.
But before we get to the first major of the year, or even the first event, Thursday’s Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, we had to officially ring in the new year.
Pro golfers of course got in on the action too, from Phil Mickelson hitting the slopes to Charley Hoffman hanging with his family at home to Patton Kizzire and Rory McIlroy celebrating in Kapalua.
Here’s how some of the pros celebrated the calendar turning to 2019.
Well this was def the low point of the festivities! Happy New Year!! pic.twitter.com/PogqIcAp8x
