PGA Tour schedule in 2018-19 released, includes shortened FedEx Cup playoffs

The PGA TOUR, on behalf of the International Federation of PGA Tours, announced in April that Memphis' hometown event will take on a new identity as the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, beginning with the 2018-19 PGA TOUR Season.

The event will be part of the FedEx Cup, and is one of several changes to the pro golf schedule in 2019.

The Northern Trust (August 5-11) will rotate between the New York City area and TPC Boston every year starting in 2020.

For their second engagement of the day, the newlyweds visited Croke Park, headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association.


The season features 46 events, starting with the Safeway Open in October and concluding with the Tour Championship, which will end August 25, 2019, allowing the golf season to end before the start of football. "This will enhance the visibility of the FedEx Cup play-offs and overall fan engagement with the PGA Tour and the game as a whole".

The Rocket Mortgage Classic in June is the first PGA Tour event to be held in Detroit and takes the place of the Quicken Loans National, meaning Tiger Woods loses one of the events that benefits his foundation.

The tour will feature 46 events over 41 weeks, down from 48 tournaments this year.

The 101st PGA Championship will be staged May 16-19 at Bethpage Black with the US Open four weeks later at Pebble Beach June 13-16 and the British Open concluding the major schedule July 18-21 at Portrush in Northern Ireland.

"It's a market we always wanted to go back to, and we're thrilled that we will now have that chance", PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said. The move was originally announced previous year.

The major changes include moving The Players Championship from May to March and the PGA Championship from August to May.

The WGC-Mexico Championship moves up a week following Genesis and precedes the Honda Classic and Arnold Palmer Invitational. The details of the competition, which will be sponsored by Aon, have yet to be completed, but a running tally of the players' scores on the designated holes will be kept and the standings will be updated weekly and publicized on each tour's various media platforms, including CBS for the men, and Golf Channel for the women.
