2019 PGA Tour Schedule

I love the big changes:
  • Moving the PGA Championship into the 2-month gap between The Masters and US Open.
  • Moving The Players to March (in the middle of the Florida swing, where it makes sense).


I feel bad for the AT&T Byron Nelson at Trinity Forest, it is getting hosed moving to right before the US Open.

    Boston and NY/NJ will alternate hosting the Northern Trust, so it will be at TPC Norton in 2020.

    I hadn't really thought of it much before, but East Lake is a blah finish, IMHO. It just doesn't do it for me.

    Yeah, it is a little quirky with the wraparound season. It is my understanding we'll see Houston and Greenbriar in Fall 2019, as part of the 2020 season.

    I agree, East Lake doesn't make for great TV. I'd like to see the Tournament Championship rotate and get a little more hype behind it. It should be a flagship event and has never really felt like it.

    Yeah, note that there's no September up there. It's not like they're going to take the whole month off. The weather at the Greenbriar is going to be way nicer in September than it ever is in July, so that's a good move IMO. I don't know Houston well enough to guess at spring vs. fall weather.



    I'm curious what they're going to do about a yearly Boston tournament. Seems strange that they're going with every other year (Northern Trust: alternating between Liberty National and TPC Boston). AFAIK the Boston tournament has always been well supported, never had a problem attracting sponsors, etc. Maybe a September date that alternates between Boston and NJ opposite years as the Northern Trust?

    No Greenbrier Classic listed. Rumors of it moving to October to maybe kick off the 2019-2020 season?

    Though I understand it, the idea of a super condensed schedule for the sole reason of being afraid of NFL's shadow is highly annoying. Fall is the best season to Golf imo.



    Also, way too many important tournaments in a row in this stretch:


    Jan. 21-27: Farmers Insurance Open (Torrey Pines Golf Course)

    Jan. 28-Feb. 3: Waste Management Phoenix Open (TPC Scottsdale Stadium Course)

    Feb. 4-10: AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (Pebble Beach Golf Links, multiple courses)

    Feb. 11-17: Genesis Open (The Riviera Country Club)

    Feb. 18-24: World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship (Club de Golf Chapultepec)

    Feb. 25-Mar 3: The Honda Classic (PGA National Resort & Spa)

    March 4-10: Arnold Palmer Invitational (Bay Hill Club and Lodge)

    March 11-17: The Players Championship (TPC Sawgrass)

    March 18-24: Valspar Championship (Innisbrook Resort)

    March 25-31: World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play (Austin Country Club)




    And there's a month of nothingness between the US and British Open.


    June 10-16: U.S. Open (Pebble Beach Golf Links)

    June 17-23: Travelers Championship (TPC River Highlands)

    June 24-30: Rocket Mortgage Classic (Detroit Golf Club)

    July 1-7: 3M Open (TPC Twin Cities)

    July 8-14: John Deere Classic (TPC Deere Run)

    July 15-21: The Open Championship (Royal Portrush Golf Club)

    I'm glad they finally came out with the schedule. It's about what people have said it would be. Yes, Greenbriar

    is moving to the fall in 2019. They came out and announced that during the tournament. I guess the fall

    schedule will expand a little. Probably play it in late Sept.



    Overall this is a welcomed move and long overdue IMO. Everyone knows the NFL is #1 so best to wrap up

    the playoffs in August.

    Where a tournament is on the schedule may not be as important as how well the tournament is run

    and the amenities on site. Both the Heritage and the Travelers have done very well right after a major.

    And being the week before a major isn't all that bad as many players like to play the week before.



    The condensed schedule will be tougher though as players need breaks during the season and have

    to fit them in somewhere without missing all the big tournaments.
  • MillerLowLifeMillerLowLife Posts: 667 ✭✭
    This looks a lot more of a build up for the golf season. I generally have a lot of excitement leading to the Masters but fall into the lull waiting for the US Open to come around. This is a jam packed to start off and looks awesome.

    The Valspar is a great tournament too! It’s just a shame it’s caught right in the middle of that big stretch

    True enough, it just seems strange to only have a Boston stop every other year. Also Jay Monahan was the tournament director when it launched as the Deutsche Bank so I'm surprised to see it go--you'd think if there was any tournament that needed an advocate it'd be impossible to find someone better placed than Monahan.

    i don't know that the byron nelson classic will be hurt all that much being the week before the pga ... after the masters, which concludes a good bit of fairly big tournaments, there's the heritage and the zurich ... lot of guys will take those 2 weeks off ... lot of big name guys ... then it's the wf, which a lot will play, but the nelson could be part of a 3 week swing after a long layoff ...

    Another area of condensed tournaments is at the end. The top players are looking at this finish in July/ August



    British Open

    WGC-Memphis

    Wyndham (Olympics)

    Fed Ex Playoff

    Fed Ex Playoff

    Fed Ex Playoff



    That's five weeks out of six for the top 30.



    If you play Scotland like Phil, Rickie, Reed, Hideki and Kuchar are this week, that's six out seven.

    It may do better with a northeast US Open though.



    The real question is what does this do to US Open qualifying. Is the second "pro site" going to be in Canada? If they play it in someplace like Buffalo do they need to shift another site around to accommodate the Mid-South?

    Oh sure. Week-before major tournies always suffer, 2019 just looks like a particularly bad year potential strength of field wise for the Canadian Open.

    It does lead to a further question, why didn't the Canadian open folks try and pair up the tourney with the US Open? Unless of course no club in Vancouver wanted to host it next year.

    I read an article a couple of months ago where the Canadian Open officials were trying to do such a matchup. They probably didn't have enough time to move to a Vancouver location for 2019. I would expect a western location for the Canadian Open when the US Open comes back to the west coast next time.

    That's not all that different than what we have now, even with the FedEx stuff shifting closer to the Open and the PGA moving. With the FedEx at four tournaments you were getting guys skipping one of them. That's a really bad look for the tour, so they go to three FedEx events going forward, but it's still 5/6 under either the old or new schedule. The difference is with the new schedule you have a choice whether to skip the Wyndham or Memphis, whereas before lots of people skipped Wyndham and some high profile names blew off one of the FedExes, especially if they had a commitment to the Wyndham.



    Right now, IIRC, it's:



    PGA

    Wyndham

    FedEx

    FedEx

    FedEx

    FedEx



    The new setup is marginally better IMO, though I still think both "playoffs" and a "wrap around season" are dumb ideas that lead to these silly scheduling compromises. But hey, follow the money I suppose.

    Hopefully that means the Irish Open and Scottish Open might get more top players now - assuming they keep a similar sched to this season.

    Could definitely see more of the European players hanging out over there for 3 weeks.

    Many years there has been a skip week in the Fed Ex playoffs. Sometimes after Boston and sometimes right before the Tour Championship.





    And with FedEx being the sponsor of the WGC-Memphis, you can rest assured that there will be as much arm twisting as possible to make sure everyone shows up there.

    I wonder about the Houston event. If they're having trouble getting a sponsor for a tournament with the current (pretty good) spot on the schedule, what makes them think they'll be able to sell an event during football season?



    In the long run, I wonder if we'll end up seeing more CIMB/CJ Cup-type events in the fall.
