PGA Tour schedule in 2018-19 released, includes shortened FedEx Cup playoffs
The FedExCup Playoffs will feature three events, instead of four, starting with the 2018-19 PGA Tour season according to the official 2018-19 schedule released Tuesday.
This year will be the last year of the 3M Championship as a PGA Tour Champions event beginning July 30.
As previously announced, the Players Championship has reverted to March in order to accommodate the US PGA's switch to May, while the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis, which replaces the Bridgestone Invitational, takes place immediately after the Open at Royal Portrush.
The equal payout for the men and women earned the attention of the LPGA Tour members, whose financial compensation in the competitive and corporate spheres lag far behind their PGA Tour brethren.
The BMW Championship will be the middle event for the leading 70 players in the FedExCup standings, while TPC Boston will host the Northern Trust on alternate years from 2020 after the Dell Technologies Championship removed from the schedule.
It is one of two new events in rotation for the tour next season.
However, all is not lost for area golf fans, as The Northern Trust, the first leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs, will begin a rotation between Boston and New York City.
"We are extremely pleased with the way the schedule has come together, particularly with the number of changes that were involved and the strength of the partnerships required to achieve this new look", Monahan said in a statement.
The start of the schedule in the fall - which, after the Safeway, takes the tour overseas for three events in Asia - is basically the same through the Genesis Open at Riviera in late February.
The WGC-Mexico Championship moves up a week following Genesis and precedes the Honda Classic and Arnold Palmer Invitational.
The RBC Canadian Open moves a week before the U.S. Open, held next year at Pebble Beach.
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.
