PGA Tour schedule in 2018-19 released, includes shortened FedEx Cup playoffs

The Rocket Mortgage Classic is one of two new stops on the PGA Tour for 2018-19, along with the 3M Open in Minnesota.

The Players Championship - often described as the unofficial fifth major - has been moved to March from its previous date in May, with the end-of-season FedEx Cup play-offs shortened to three events and finishing on 25 August.

The FedEx Cup play-offs have been reduced from four events to three as part of a revamped 2019 schedule released by the PGA Tour on Tuesday. The tournament is the first to transition from the Champions to the PGA Tour.

The Houston Open, which had been played the week before the Masters, is moving to the fall in 2019.

The WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational will be one of four World Golf Championships events on the 2018-19 PGA TOUR schedule sanctioned and organized by the International Federation of PGA Tours. The move was originally announced past year. So other than a tour pro potentially changing his/her schedule, essentially, you just play tournaments and hope to score well on the selected holes.

"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.

"And by concluding at the end of August, the FedEx Cup playoffs no longer have the challenge of sharing the stage with college and professional football".

The WGC-Mexico Championship moves up a week following Genesis and precedes the Honda Classic and Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Meanwhile, The Players Championship, which once occupied the month of May, will be played March 11-17, 2019.

Scheduled for May 13-19, 2019, at Bethpage State Park's Black Course (above), the PGA Championship will be the second major played in the 2019 tournament schedule, five weeks after the Masters Tournament and five weeks before the U.S. Open. The final piece was where to put two new tournaments between the U.S. Open and British Open.

While The Open, to be played at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland next year, becomes the last of the four majors, it will be a mad dash to the finish for PGA Tour players.
