PGA Rocket Mortgage Classic to be played in Detroit in June

PGA Rocket Mortgage Classic to be played in Detroit in June

The 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities replaces a Champions Tour event held at the venue, and the Rocket Mortgage Classic takes the place of the Quicken Loans National, meaning Tiger Woods is losing one of the events that benefits his foundation.

A 46-tournament schedule begins the week after the Ryder Cup in France with the Safeway Open on October 4-7 in Napa, California, followed by stops in Malaysia, South Korea and Shanghai among eight 2018 events, which top stars typically skip. So is the Greenbrier tournament, which will now see the Minnesota event take its spot on the schedule.

The PGA Tour is expected to announce a revamped playoff format later this year.

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

The FedExCup Playoffs will move from four events to three next year, featuring the Northern Trust, the BMW Championship and the Tour Championship.

The three playoff events are The Northern Trust at Liberty National in New Jersey; the BMW Championship at Medinah outside Chicago; and the Tour Championship, which will be August 22-25 at East Lake in Atlanta.
