Schedule Changes

This year there are a few changes coming to the schedule, we will take a look at some big changes for the upcoming season. This year the PGA Championship will move to May 13-19, making it the second major played. It will fall 5 weeks after The Masters’ and 5 weeks before the U.S. Open. With this move, the PGA also decided to adjust the schedule of The Players Championship. The Players will now be hosted March 11-17 instead of its typical time slot in May. For the first time, the RBC Canadian Open will now serve as the lead in event for the U.S. Open, June 3-9. The FedEx Cup will also be moving up on the schedule for 2019, typically the PGA season goes into September but this year the playoffs will conclude in August. A big reason for the move up in the seasons’ conclusion is that typically in the Fall season the PGA has to compete with NCAA and NFL football.
