TPC Boston loses annual FedEx Cup playoff tourney

TPC Boston loses annual FedEx Cup playoff tourney

The Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill will be played the week before the Players while the WGC Match-Play Championship and a PGA event in the Dominican Republic come two weeks before the Masters, whose lead-in remains the Texas Open.

A FedEx Cup playoff event has been eliminated as part of a revamped, tighter schedule that will allow its season to end a week before the football season begins in the United States. "This will enhance the visibility of the FedExCup Playoffs".

The PGA Championship, the last of the four majors that this year will be played in St. Louis from August 9-12, will move into the May 16-19 slot next season and will follow the U.S. Masters which remains in its traditional first week of April position.

On Tuesday, the US Tour announced a new-look schedule for the 2018/19 season, with significant changes including a reduction from 48 tournaments to 46 and a late August finale courtesy of the lucrative FedEx Cup playoffs dropping from four events to three.

Jude Invitational will be held from July 25-28, 2019, the PGA TOUR announced Tuesday.

In a scheduling quirk, the Houston Open and Greenbrier will not be on the 2018-19 schedule, but only because they're moving to the fall and will be on the 2019-20 slate. "The fact that Aon is providing equal prize money for the men (PGA TOUR) and women (LPGA) has made a huge statement to our players, and we couldn't be more appreciative". The BMW Championship will be held at Chicago's Medinah No. 3 in 2019 followed by the Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta. Then there is considerable change from past years. The Players Championship will now move back to March, its former home before 2007. Puerto Rico is slotted for February 18-24, the same week as the WGC-Mexico Championship.

On top of the shortened schedule, there are some other changes to note heading into next season. The Dell Technologies Open in Boston will be the odd tournament out.

Golf-mad markets in Minnesapolis and Detroit are rewarded with PGA Tour events, the Canadian Open moves off a tough date after The Open, the WGC event in Akron loses a sponsor in Bridgetsone but picks up a big one in FedEx.

The 101st PGA Championship will be staged from May 16-19 at Bethpage Black, with the US Open four weeks later at Pebble Beach from June 13-16 and the British Open concluding the Major schedule from July 18-21 at Portrush in Northern Ireland.

"There are many ups and downs in golf so you can't get too high about it or too excited for it, but I'm feeling pretty good about [my round]", said Melton, whose previous lowest score was a 64.
