PGA Golf Playing Field for the 2016 Safeway Open, Tiger Woods is Not Playing

The 2016 Safeway Classic golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from October 13-16, 2016, on the North course at the Silverado Country Club located in beautiful Napa, California. Here is a list of the playing field for the 2016 Safeway Classic.

The big new for the 2016 Safeway Classic is that Tiger Woods was going to make his PGA return to action in this event but he withdrew Monday. The 2016 Safeway Classic is actually the first event of the 2017 PGA season.

In the playing field for the 2016 Safeway Open are top ranked golfers Phil Mickelson, Paul Casey, Matt Kuchar, last year's winner Emiliano Grillo, Scott Piercy, Justin Thomas and Kevin Na. All of those players are ranked in the top 50 in the World Golf Rankings.  

Without Tiger Woods playing, the 2016 Safeway Open has lost its marquee attraction. No top 10 ranked golfers is playing this week as Jason Day, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Henrik Stenson and Adam Scott are not playing here this week.

Golf major winners in the field not listed above include Keegan Bradley, Stewart Cink, Lucas Glover, Retief Goosen, Webb Simpson and David Toms. Young players to watch for this week include Ollie Schniederjans and Bryson DeChambeau who earned his playing card for the 2017 season on the Tour.
