The PGA Tour makes its first east coast stop of the 2014-15 season this week when it arrives in Sea Island, Ga.

Andres Gonzales, Bae Sang-moon tied in first event of new season

  The new PGA Tour season felt like an old one to a trio of Ryder Cup players Thursday at the Frys.com Open. Hunter Mahan, Matt Kuchar and Jimmy Walker met on the 10th tee at Silverado.
