2006 PGA Tour Schedule

I was just taking a look at the 2006 PGA Tour schedule and had a bit of a shock when I realized that it starts the week after next—the season opening Mercedes Championship is Jan. 5 – 8.

Didn’t the season just end? It seems like only yesterday that I was watching the 2005 season’s end trying to figure out who was going to squeeze under the bar on the money list.

Maybe Tiger, et. al are right. Maybe the season is too long.

Anyhow, the complete 2006 schedule is below:
