US PGA Championship to move from August to May in tour revamp

Brooke Henderson reacts to the fans at the end of her second round of the Canadian Pacific Women's Open at Priddis Greens Golf and Country Club

The PGA Tour released its 2018-19 schedule Tuesday which includes a new Quicken Loans Inc. -sponsored tournament in Detroit.

"We will be working with the PGA Tour to make the Detroit stop one of the most exciting and engaging events on the professional golf calendar".

PGA Tour officials announced a new professional golf tournament is coming to Detroit in 2019.

In the 2018-19 schedule, the FedEx St. Jude Invitational will follow the season's final major championship - The Open Championship - on the schedule and will be followed by the regular season's final event, the Wyndham Championship, before transitioning into the FedExCup Playoffs, which have been shortened to three events. The Houston Open and A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier are moving to the fall and will be played next as part of the 2019-20 schedule. The TPC Boston, meanwhile, will rotate with a New York-area course every other year for the opening FedEx Cup playoff event.

The RBC Canadian Open moves a week before the U.S. Open, held next year at Pebble Beach.

"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.

Still to be determined is whether the PGA Tour will change the structure for the FedEx Cup, and how this new schedule will work in 2020 when the Olympics are in Japan from July 24 to August 9.

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. Then there is considerable change from past years. It will be followed by the 3M Open in Minnesota and the John Deere Classic. Key to the changes was the PGA Championship moving from August to May, and The Players Championship returning to March. The Dallas and Fort Worth tournaments are split by the PGA Championship, which will be played at Bethpage Black (May 16-19) as part of its new May date. Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament takes its usual spot two weeks before the U.S. Open, with the Canadian Open in between. It is one of two new events in rotation for the tour next season.
