The PGA Championship might be over for the year, but there’s still plenty of golf to watch before 2019 begins. Here are the PGA Tour tournaments in October that are definitely worth changing the channel for:
Silverado Country Club | Napa, California

Titled the Fry’s Electronics Open until its renaming in 2016, this tournament has been held since 2007. The tournament takes place in beautiful Napa, California and has been played by notable golfers such as Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, and Rickie Fowler. Will Brendan Steele be able to take home the winning trophy for a third consecutive year?

Hosted in Malaysia, the CIMB Classic is the first ever event sanctioned by the PGA Tour in Southeast Asia. It has been held annually since 2010 and has boasted players such as Justin Thomas and Ryan Moore. Defending champion Pat Perez has remained in the middle of the pack this 2018 season, will he return and maintain his number one position?
The CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges

The CJ Cup made its debut in 2017, so we are excited to see how year two treats this tournament.
