PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (October 7, 2014) – From the moment the PGA TOUR’s new wraparound season began in October to the day it ended the following September, the 2013-2014 season produced a wealth of highlights from the expected to the unexpected.

In the end, Rory McIlroy had a season to remember and firmly established himself as the world’s No. 1 player and Player of the Year while Billy Horschel charged through the Playoffs with victories in the final two events to win the FedExCup. PGA TOUR 2014: Season in Review presented by Barclays, a one-hour special airing on NBC Sunday, October 12, at 2 p.m. ET, highlights the stories from this landmark season, as well as delves into the major champions, breakthrough players, and emerging trends on TOUR.
