The 2013-14 PGA TOUR season begins at this week's Frys.com Open at CordeValle Resort in San Martin, Calif. This is the first year that the TOUR season will start shortly after the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola instead of in January. The 2013-14 season's first six events will be played in 2013. Those half-dozen events will be played in six consecutive weeks in four different countries. The TOUR will then take a short break before resuming with the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in the first week of January.

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – No matter what happens when the first round of the Northern Trust Open is completed on Friday morning, there will be more players tied for the lead than after any round of any tournament on the PGA TOUR since such records started being kept in 1970.
The current tally is nine – John Senden, Martin Laird, Robert Allenby, Spencer Levin, Aaron Baddeley, Ben Martin, Bill Haas, Carl Pettersson and J.B. Holmes. And Peter Tomasulo could make it 10 if he converts a 13-footer for birdie at the 18th hole when he resumes his first round at 7:45 a.m.
The previous record was eight.
LA JOLLA, Calif. -- A lot has been written already this year about the New Breed and the Establishment on the PGA TOUR. It’s more than a marketing plan, though – and you have only to look at the leaders of the Farmers Insurance Open for proof.
Four of the five players currently tied for the lead at 5 under are 25 or younger – Chris Kirk (25), Sung-hoon Kang (24), Ben Martin (23) and Rickie Fowler (22). Brant Jobe at 45 is holding the banner for the “old” guys.
