US PGA unveils revamped 2018-19 schedule with shorter playoffs

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.

He added: "Let me tell you, whether we win or lose the game, my life will not change", he said. There, France would wait for Croatia again, just like they did in Saint-Denis on July 8, 1998.

Preparations for the final Dell Technologies Championship are underway and the 100-player field will have its unique Monday finish for one last time on September 3.

"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 Canadian Open will move from late July to June 6-9 as a lead-in to the US Open the following week.

Scheduled for May 13-19, 2019, at Bethpage State Park's Black Course (above), the PGA Championship will be the second major played in the 2019 tournament schedule, five weeks after the Masters Tournament and five weeks before the U.S. Open. It will be February 21-24, the same week as the World Golf Championships Mexico Championship.

The Aon Risk Reward Challenge will be operated through a multi-platform strategy that includes broadcast integration with CBS and Golf Channel, the use of PGA Tour and LPGA digital platforms, and brand engagement at events.
