Entering Sunday’s play at the 117th U.S. Open at Erin Hills, eight players with no major championship wins on their resume teed off with just four shots separating them. At the end of the day, Brooks Koekpa was four clear of all of them. As the wind howled and combatants bogeyed their way around the course, Koepka kept bombing it down the middle and scrambling whenever he needed to on his way to a 6-under 66.

He may not have been in a PGA Tour winner’s circle since Obama was starting his first term in office. But Paul Casey is still a deserving number one in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, October 25, 2016 edition.

Napa, California – The 2016 Safeway Open had the potential to be one of the most watched events on the tour this season.  Now it’s just the opening event of the 2016-2017 PGA Tour Schedule.

All the excitement of course was generated by the expected appearance of Tiger Woods, but that all died early this week when Woods confirmed he wasn’t going to be in the field.

So, for now, the excitement generated by a new season will have to do.

So with the 14-time major winner not in the picture, here’s what you should be looking for this week as the 2016 Safeway Open gets underway at the Silverado Country Club on Thursday.

It took a while for him to get back, but it should come as no surprise that Rory McIlroy is on top of the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, October 4, 2016 edition.

If you had polled golf experts prior to the start of the 2016-2016 PGA Tour season, many would have chosen the young Northern Irishman to me on top of the rankings at the end of the year. The fact that it took him a little longer than expected is the only shock.

McIlroy continued his late season surge at the Tour Championship, winning for the second time in the PGA Tour playoffs to capture the 2016 FedEx Cup championship, and the $10 million dollar bonus. While that may not take away the disappointment of a frustrating major season completely, I’m sure it helps.

The four-time major champion moves up five places to capture top spot, the second time he’s hit number one in our rankings. He previously ruled the rankings for two weeks in November, 2015.

He holds a surprisingly slim lead over a resurgent Paul Casey, who recorded his third consecutive top five playoff finish in Atlanta. The Englishman moves from 3rd to 2nd in his fourth consecutive week in the Top 10. Casey still hasn’t won on tour since the 2009 Houston Open, but a PGA Tour victory seems close.
