The 2014 PGA Tour will be the 99th season and the 47th since separating from the PGA of America. The season, which began on October 10, 2013, is the first to span two calendar years, with an October–September format.

2013 was a good year according to John Feinstein:

[The year produced four worthy major champions: Adam Scott, Justin Rose, Phil Mickelson and Jason Dufner. Tiger Woods won five times but was again shut out in the majors. Rory McIlroy’s year was a complete washout for 11 months. Like the PGA Tour, he began 2014 early with a win on the first day of December that may prove to be a starting point for the new beginning he clearly needs. Jordan Spieth became the latest ‘it’ kid with a breath-taking rookie season – much of it taking place while he was still a teenager. Inbee Park won the first three women’s majors of the year and almost didn’t win Player of the Year under the LPGA’s points system.

As is the case in most years, the majors provided a large chunk of the drama and almost all the highlights. If Scott’s playoff victory over Angel Cabrera at Augusta National had been the only sublime moment of the year, it would have been a pretty good year. His victory was about as popular as any in recent memory, in part because he finally lived up to the huge potential he flashed years ago when he first came to the U.S. as a kid with a pretty swing and a smile that made women swoon.

In the movies, the guy who suffers that heartbreak somehow finds a way to come back before the closing credits to be a hero. It never happens that way in real life.

Except in 2013, when Mickelson did exactly that. Coming off what he readily admitted was the most heartbreaking loss of a career that’s seen its share of heartache, he played the most gratifying – and brilliant – round of his life on the last day at Muirfield to win the Open Championship.

Finally, there was Dufner at Oak Hill. Many believed his one chance at greatness had come and gone in Atlanta two years earlier when he let a five-shot lead melt away down the stretch and lost to Keegan Bradley in a playoff. But, going head-to-head the final day of the PGA Championship with Jim Furyk, he played an almost perfect ball-striking round and was in control on the back nine. While it was tough to see Furyk once again miss a golden chance at his second major, it was heartwarming to see Dufner bounce back after the kind of loss that often kills careers to become a major champion.]
