The sport of golf barely has an offseason. Sure, the PGA Tour concludes, but other major worldwide events occur into December. The holiday season is really the only offseason for the sport. However, golf has a great holiday gift for all of its fans this year.
The 2012 PGA Tour schedule looks as appealing as it can get. The last four US Open host courses will all be visited by non-major tournaments. The FedEx Cup brings two former major venues to its rotation. The course considered to be the hardest in the country is hosting the PGA Championship. One of the great tournaments and courses on the schedule was saved after finding a new sponsor.
Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood have taken up membership. Oh, and of course there is the ever-present Tiger Woods circus.
All of these courses and the tournaments they host follow.
