The 2009 PGA Tour golf season is finally here and with the new year, we can expect a very exciting season. The 2008 season had a few strange occurrences from losing Tiger Woods for most of the season to a disappointing FedEx Cup Playoff finish. With Tiger recovering from knee surgery, we golf supporters were able to see golf in a very different perspective. It was interesting to see players have their chance to shine in the spotlight. Tiger is definitely the best thing to happen to the sport of golf; he single handily brought the game to its apex. Golf was losing popularity, but with a player as skilled as Tiger, the world had to follow. The sport is now gaining more followers and players than ever before, and yes golf is "cool" now; Who would have thought?
With Tiger out of the way, we saw young golfers such as Anthony Kim rise to the occasion and try to steal the huge $10 million bonus. Padraig Harrington, the poster boy of Ireland, was able to take home the last two majors of the season, but not the FedEx Cup. No, that was taken by none other than a 45 year old Fijian named Vijay Singh.
So what can we expect in '09?
