It's nice to have the PGA Tour back

It's finally about golf again.

That doesn't mean Tiger Woods won't remain the most compelling sidestory but the PGA Tour season starts this week in Kapalua, meaning we can sit on our couches at night and watch golf in prime-time. We'll get plenty of shots of palm trees blowing in the trade winds, surfers on the waves and Molokai across the water from Maui.

Okay, so the SBS Championship field is missing Tiger and Phil Mickelson but it's nice to have the PGA Tour back, even if it faces some serious issues over the coming months.

It'll be nice to see Stewart Cink and Sean O'Hair and Zach Johnson playing golf again.

It's freezing around here (though almost 40 players at my club spent Saturday getting their cheeks frosted while playing in the chill) so most of our golf experience will run through the television for a while.

We can listen to the players talk about the new grooves rule, check out the shirts we'll be buying this spring and dream about that trip to Maui we keep saying we're going to take one day. It's nice to have golf back.

Best of all, it means the Masters is only 13 weeks away.
