You can’t argue with what John Oliver did for golf in 2016.
He broke his own record for the most golf courses in one year.
And that’s before we even get to the Tour of Qatar.
So what else can we add?
We can’t go too deep into the Tour calendar, because we haven’t been given a full list of courses and there is more to say about those other events that we haven.
However, there are some gems in there that we’d like to highlight.
Here’s our countdown of the best golf courses of the season.
John Oliver: The Perfect Tour of the Year: 10.
John Oliver’s Perfect Tour was one of the biggest tours of the 2016 season.
With all its challenges and drama, it also saw the greatest number of courses in the tour’s history.
In its six weeks, the tour played 6,898 courses, making it the most-played golf course tour ever.
“It’s hard to imagine anyone being able to play the courses we’ve had this year,” Oliver told the BBC.
“But it is the best Tour of all time.”
John, the Tour: 11.
The late John Oliver made history by becoming the first British golfer to win a PGA Tour event.
He made history this year with a record-breaking feat.
His tour, which featured eight courses in 16 weeks, was the biggest in the history of the PGA Championship.
It was also the first time a British golferer won a PGC event.
It also came just six weeks after the first Ryder Cup.
10,000-Pound Challenge: 9.
The inaugural PGA Challenge was the first to feature all eight of the players competing for a guaranteed entry into the tour, as well as a guarantee of a guaranteed spot on the playoff field.
It featured all eight players, including the winner of the inaugural Tour of Dubai, the winner and a guaranteed playoff spot.
The winner of this year’s tour had a shot at qualifying for the 2018 PGA TOUR Championship.
Golfers on the Edge: 6.
The most expensive tournament of the Tour’s history was the largest in PGA history at $7 million.
That’s about as expensive as a Ferrari 458 Spider.
The Most Dangerous Tour: 5.
The 2018 PSA European Championship was the most expensive European tournament ever played, but that wasn’t the only thing that was expensive.
More than $500,000 worth of equipment, including a $1.7 million bag, were required to play.
The largest PGA tournament of all-time.
The event is the largest tour event ever played and the largest PSA tournament ever held.
The Great American Tour: 3.
The PGA is the only golf course in the US to hold a major championship and the first major tournament in the United States.
In 2018, the PSA Tour of California was the second-biggest event of the entire year behind only the Tour Championship.
