The new schedule, which starts October 4 with the Safeway Open, concludes August 25, 2019 with the Tour Championship.
The Barbasol Championship, the only PGA TOUR tournament in Kentucky, will be played Thursday through Sunday, July 19-22, at Champions at Keene Trace in Nicholasville, just outside Lexington. It is one of two new events in rotation for the tour next season. The playoffs lose one of their events, yes, but Boston and NY will rotate the opening event, and the entire month of September is now free for Ryder Cups and the like.
The PGA Tour released its 2018-19 schedule Tuesday which includes a new Quicken Loans Inc. -sponsored tournament in Detroit.
Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex to attend Wimbledon together
The pair had an overnight stay aboard the Royal Train before attending Royal Ascot, which was her Royal Ascot debut. Newly married royal family member Meghan Markle has broken a royal protocol opening up with her views.
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.
But most of the top-level professional golf played in the Twin Cities area since then has been major championships: the 1991 U.S. Open, 2002 and 2009 PGA Championship and 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National in Chaska, and the 2008 U.S. Women's Open at Interlachen Country Club in Edina. The FedeXCup will also end before the start of the football season, allowing more spectator interest.
It will be held from February 21-24, the same week as the World Golf Championships (WGC) Mexico Championship. "This will enhance the visibility of the FedExCup Playoffs".
British-US trade deal possible after Brexit, say May and Trump

"It's been our stated objective for several years to create better sequencing of our tournaments that golf fans around the world can engage in from start to finish", PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said in a statement. So even though a major championship has been moved to end the season earlier, it really doesn't alleviate any of the scheduling glut for big-name players who are, at minimum, looking at five tournaments in six weeks, including a major and a WGC. Plus, the Players Championship gets its old March date back - a significant tournament a month before the first major.
Those changes helped create a kind of midsummer Midwest Swing in the month between the USA and British opens: the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit on June 27-30, the 3M Open, and the long-standing John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill., on July 11-14.
The three playoff events are The Northern Trust at Liberty National in New Jersey; the BMW Championship at Medinah outside Chicago; and the Tour Championship, which will be August 22-25 at East Lake in Atlanta.
President Trump Sits in Winston Churchill's Chair
Speaking ahead of Mr Trump's visit, Mr Khan said: "Around the world, the far-right and nationalist populists are on the rise". In a 1997 interview, just weeks after Diana's death, U.S. radio host Howard Stern asked Trump if he "could have nailed her".
On top of the shortened schedule, there are some other changes to note heading into next season.
