A new PGA Tour season will begin with the Fortinet Championship in Napa this month. The tournament is going to be held at the Silverado Resort and Spa – North Course in Napa Valley, a new chance for all the players participating. Jon Rahm, who was looking for a good start, did not play the pro-am.

The North Course is beautiful and scenic, always providing a good challenge for anyone on the course. Previously known as the Safeway Open, the event has been in Napa Valley since October 2014. While Safeway Inc was the previous sponsor, Fortinet took over as the main sponsor this year.


Stewart Cink won in 2020, beating Harry Higgs. It started as the Fry’s Electronics Open in 2007 and was initially a PGA Tour Fall Series. However, in 2013, it started opening the season as the PGA Tour year began later in October (currently September). From 2008 to 2015, it was called the Frys.com Open. Mike Weir won in 2007.
