2013 Frys.com Open - Vegas Odds, Free Picks, + Tee Times
The Frys.com Open has a special place on the 2013 PGA Tour calendar. In years past it's been a forgotten event that takes place after the Tour Championship and the conclusion of the FedEx Cup. It has never counted for a FedEx Cup event before; that is until the PGA Tour adopted a wraparound schedule for this season. And kicking things off will be the 2013 Frys.com Open.
The tournament just got a lot bigger in the eyes of the PGA Tour players, because this will mark the first chance to earn FedEx Cup points for the new season. CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, CA will take center stage. The first FedEx Cup points of the year will be awarded by the end of the tournament, as players look to get off to a fast start before even the 2014 calendar events begin.
Golf Channel will have the complete coverage of this tournament from the first round through the final round, with live coverage all week long.

2012 Fry.com Open
Carding all four rounds in the 60s at the 2012 Frys.com Open, Jonas Blixt captured the tournament by one shot over Tim Petrovic and Jason Kokrak. Petrovic made a fierce charge on Sunday with a final round 64, but Blixt's 68 was enough to hold off for the win.
That was Blixt's only win in 2012, but he would use that momentum and carry that over into 2013 where he would add to his win total with another victory. Blixt is a rising star on the PGA Tour, with the potential for several more victories in his future.
