Pinehurst member Darron Stiles is the Web.Com Tour’s all-time career money-winner, which people who don’t know any better would say makes him the Crash Davis of golf. That isn’t accurate, of course, because Stiles has had five seasons on the PGA Tour, and the Web.com Tour success has translated to more than $1.8 million in earnings. Stiles has also earned more than $1.4 million in his five PGA Tour seasons.
Stiles has already seen his share of highs and lows early through the Western Swing for the 2013 PGA Tour season. On occasion here at the Pinehurst Blog, he’ll recount those highs and lows, what “reshuffling” means to PGA Tour players and everything in between.

Welcome to a new feature for me. This is the first post of the year for my blog about life on the PGA Tour.
I hope you enjoy the weekly updates and random thoughts about the game in general. Once my web site is up and running, I will be able to answer any questions you may have, or if you have any suggestions for topics to discuss, that would be great as well.
Let’s start with a recap of my season up until the Honda Classic.
As always, the PGA Tour season starts with the annual visit to the Aloha State – Hawaii. This year Hawaii had special meaning to me. Back in 2009, my wife, Kim and I were there for the first event of the season, when upon completion of my opening round of 78, we found out my father had suffered a massive heart attack and was on his way to the hospital.
