The 2022/23 PGA Tour season begins with the Fortinet Championship at Silverado in Napa, California, with Max Homa back to defend the title he won last year.

In that tournament, the American took advantage of a late Maverick McNealy error, who produced a costly double bogey on the 17th. That helped Homa secure his third PGA Tour title following an excellent back nine in the final round. McNealy also returns this year in an effort to banish memories of that poor finish and get his PGA Tour season off to a dream start.

The field isn’t the strongest we’ll see on the PGA Tour this season, with some top players opting to sit out the opener. Meanwhile, others, like World No.2 Rory McIlroy and US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick, are sizing up next year’s Ryder Cup venue, Marco Simone Golf Club, in the DP World Tour's Italian Open. Nevertheless, there are still some other interesting names to keep an eye on. 

The highest-ranked player this week is World No.16 Hideki Matsuyama, while PGA Tour Rookie of the Year nominee Sahith Theegala also appears. Stewart Cink, who won the tournament in 2020 and 2019 winner Cameron Champ are participating, too, along with Brendan Steele, who took back-to-back titles in 2016 and 2017. Meanwhile, World No.25 Corey Conners is another expected to do well. 

Alongside the better-known players, there are also plenty with newly issued PGA Tour cards competing. They include South African World No.67 Dean Burmester and Korn Ferry Championship winner Justin Suh.

Players will be competing for an $8m purse, a $1m increase on last year’s prize fund. The winner will earn $1.44m with the runner-up taking home $872,000.
