Fowler, Dufner open 2013 TOUR season

Rickie Fowler had the honor of hitting the opening tee shot of the 2013 PGA TOUR season, as he launched a drive that landed safely in the fairway at the first hole in Friday's opening round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions (see photo above).

Playing partner Jason Dufner followed with a drive down the left side of the par-4 hole.

As the two walked down the fairway, the winds picked up and rainy conditions became worse. Winds were at more than 25 mph, with the rain blowing sideway. Both players quickly put on their rain gear.
