American PGA Tour golf tournament
The Fortinet Championship, previously the Safeway Open, is a professional golf tournament, part of the PGA Tour. Originally sponsored by Fry's Electronics, it was first staged in 2007 as the Fry's Electronics Open at Grayhawk Golf Club's Raptor Course in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was renamed to the Frys.com Open in 2008 and moved to California in 2010, to CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, southeast of San Jose. In October 2014, part of the PGA Tour's 2015 season, it moved north to Napa and the Silverado Country Club(North course).
Beginning with the October 2016 tournament, part of the PGA Tour's 2017 season, the primary sponsor was Safeway Inc., and that continued through 2020. In 2021 Fortinet became the title sponsor on a six-year deal.
Silverado's North Course hosted an annual event on the PGA Tour from 1968 through 1980, the first nine editions as the Kaiser International Open Invitational. In 1977, that event was renamed the Anheuser-Busch Golf Classic and in 1981 it moved east to Kingsmill in Williamsburg, Virginia, where it was played through 2002.
The Frys.com Open began as a PGA Tour Fall Series event, from 2007 through 2012. Starting in October 2013, when the PGA Tour changed its "year" to begin in October, rather than January, the tournament became the opening event of the PGA Tour season, and FedEx Cup points were awarded to players.
The inaugural event in 2007, at Grayhawk Golf Club's Raptor Course in Scottsdale, Arizona, was won by Mike Weir by one stroke over Mark Hensby. The 2008 event was won by Cameron Beckman on the second playoff hole, when Kevin Sutherland bogeyed it. In 2009, Troy Matteson set a PGA Tour 36-hole record of 122 with 61 in both the second and third rounds, and then won in a three-man playoff against Rickie Fowler and Jamie Lovemark. At CordeValle in San Martin in 2012, John Mallinger shot a 62, matching the course record; it was his PGA Tour best round.
In 2013, tournament organizers had a long-term goal to stage the event at The Institute Golf Course in Morgan Hill, a course owned by John Fry, when facilities were completed there. That was expected in 2016 or 2017, but did not happen because of the change of sponsorship to Safeway in 2016.

2018 Safeway Open tee times, viewer's guide
Well, that was some PGA Tour off season, huh? Yeah, not quite.
Finally, golf is back in our lives starting this week at the Safeway Open, the first event of the fall wraparound schedule. While it feels like we could all use a break from the game, there's still plenty of intriguing storylines to follow this week at Silverado Resort's North Course, site of the event since 2014.
First, there's Brendan Steele, who is looking to make history by winning the Safeway for a third straight season. Doing so would make him the first player to three-peat an event since Steve Stricker accomplished the feat in 2011 at the John Deere Classic. Since 1978, only four players have won an event three consecutive times, one of them being Tiger Woods, who did it in four different tournaments.
Then there's Phil Mickelson, coming off an embarrassing week in France he'd like to erase from his memory. He's likely physically and emotionally drained, but don't count out Lefty when he has something to prove, especially at a course he's finished T-3 and T-8 at in his last two appearances.
Another one to watch this week? Mark Mulder. Yes, the former MLB pitcher Mark Mulder, who is the latest former athlete from another sport to receive a sponsor's exemption into a professional golf event. Mulder, a three-peat winner of the American Century Championship, looks to impress the golf world in a similar fashion as Stephen Curry, Tony Romo and John Smoltz each have in the last year.
Golf Channel will provide live coverage for all four rounds beginning at 5:30 p.m. and ending at 8:30 p.m. each day.

Safeway open 2018
How much prize money each golfer earned at the 2018 Safeway Open
Robert Laberge/Getty Images
A clean slate. That's what the 2018 Safeway Open provided every player in the field at Silverado Resort & Spa in Napa, Calif. No, there weren't a lot of marquee names competing this week. But for those who did enter the tournament—including 49 of the 50 golfers who earned PGA Tour cards via their performances in Web.com Tour regular season money list and Finals Series—the chance to get the 2018-'19 season off on the right foot was no doubt a big motivation in playing this week in Northern California.
That certainly was the case for Kevin Tway, who walked off with the playoff victory over Ryan Moore and Brandt Snedeker, grabbing his first career win on the PGA Tour. With the victory, Tway claimed a tour card through the 2021 season, and a tidy first-place prize of $1.152 million. (His previous biggest tour check was $359,600 for his T-3 at the Valero Texas Open.) He also will make his first Masters start next April.
So how much money did everybody make who played at the Safeway Open? Here's a breakdown for every golfer who made the cut at Silverado Resort.
