Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar, Paul Casey and defending champion Emiliano Grillo will be among the 144-player field on Thursday when the PGA Tour opens its 2016-17 schedule with the Safeway Open at the Silverado Resort & Spas North course in Napa, Calif.But much of the talk for the past few weeks surrounding the Safeway Open centered on Tiger Woods, who committed to playing in the event last week before withdrawing Monday.Not even four days in the California wine country and a $6 million purse could entice Woods back from his 14-month injury sabbatical.My health is good, and I feel strong, but my game is vulnerable and not where it needs to be, Woods wrote on his website Monday. When I announced last week I was going to Safeway, I had every intention of playing or I wouldnt have committed. I practiced the last several days in California, but after a lot of soul searching and honest reflection, I know that I am not yet ready to play on the PGA Tour.Just the notion of having Woods play the first two days, and his Thursday and Friday pairing with Mickelson, doubled ticket sales. Those that will tee it up for 72 holes of stroke play through Sunday will give those golf fans plenty to enjoy.Mickelson said he was still on an emotional high from being part of the winning United States team in the Ryder Cup two weeks ago.The tournament here is so well run and the course is such fun that I cant wait to get the season started, Mickelson said.Grillo won here last season in his first PGA Tour event, becoming the first player to do so since Russell Henley at the 2013 Sony Open in Hawaii.On Wednesday, Grillo was named the tour rookie of the year based on that victory and two additional top-10 finishes the rest of the season (a tie for second at The Barclays and a tie for 10th at the season-ending Tour Championship during the FedExCup playoffs). He also finished tied for eighth in the mens Olympic golf competition in Rio.This is the fourth year for the PGA Tours wraparound schedule that bridges two years with 47 events. Seven events will be played during the fall of 2016, all of which will award FedExCup points. After a seven-week break, the season will resume in January with the traditional swing through Hawaii before moving to the West Coast.Four of the seven winners from the fall portion of the 2015-16 season (Grillo, Justin Thomas, Russell Knox and Kevin Kisner) qualified for the Tour Championship and two others (Smylie Kaufman and Graeme McDowell) finished inside the top 50.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianas final offensive possession didnt go according to plan, though the Pacers wont complain.Paul George was supposed to get the ball with the game tied at 105 and 4.6 seconds left. Instead, it was Thaddeus Young who popped up to the top of the key to take Jeff Teagues inbound pass.Young squared up his defender, Markieff Morris, drove to the left side of the lane and tossed in a runner with 0.9 seconds remaining to give the Pacers a 107-105 victory over the Washington Wizards on Monday night.The plan was to get the ball to Paul for the last shot and they denied him, Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. Thad came to the ball and we wanted to attack the basket. Thad did what he was supposed to do. He put his head down and attacked the basket. When the game is on the line, you want to get the ball to your best player to get a shot or get a shot for an open teammate.George scored 27 and finished with nine rebounds. Teague added 23 points to go along with his 10 assists, but the Pacers needed the last of Youngs 12 points after the Wizards scored seven straight to tie it. Young also added 11 rebounds.Bradley Beal missed a potential winning 3-pointer at the buzzer and scored 22 points.Marcin Gortat finished with 21 points and 13 rebounds, John Wall added 19 points and 10 assists, and Otto Porter Jr. scored 17 points and grabbed nine rebounds.Myles Turner finished with eight rebounds to go along with his 20 points and five blocks, including an emphatic rejection in the third quarter that sent Walls layup into the third row of the crowd.

We had an answer for each and every time they scored.The start of the game had a different theme, though. The Wizards stormed out to a 12-1 lead that forced the Pacers to call timeout less than three minutes into the game. Wall and Beal each scored 10 points in the first quarter. Indiana tied it at 57 at halftime.The Pacers led 88-79 at the end of the third quarter, but the Wizards 9-0 run to start the fourth tied it at 88, setting up the final nine minutes.This (loss) was a little more frustrating, Wall said.
