5 big changes in the 2019 PGA Tour schedule

5 big changes in the 2019 PGA Tour schedule

Global professional services firm Aon has announced a multi-year partnership with the PGA tour and LPGA to hold a unique golf competition. TPC Boston will remain part of the FedExCup Playoffs, rotating with greater New York City every other year as the host of The Northern Trust, beginning in 2020.

Triggered in part by the shifting of golf majors with the PGA Championship moving from August to May starting in 2019, the season will end before the start of the television-dominating National Football League season.

TPC Twin Cities in Blaine will play host to the FedEx Cup event running July 1-7.

After months of teasing, the PGA Tour's return to MI got a name, date and confirmation of location Tuesday.

The decision to remove Boston as an annual stop was one of many as the PGA Tour trimmed the schedule by one to 46 tournaments and the playoffs from four events to three to avoid the start of college football and the NFL. The Dell Technologies Championship, formerly the Deutsche Bank Championship, ends after its 2018 event. "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".

Ragin was arrested for two counts of battery; in addition to Jones, Jones' female companion injured her hand in the scuffle. Most recently, he pleaded guilty to obstructing police following a January 2017 altercation in downtown Cincinnati.

The 3M Open will be held two weeks before players head across the pond for The Open Championship, which will be held in Northern Ireland in 2019. Puerto Rico is slotted for February 18-24, the same week as the WGC-Mexico Championship.

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

The major changes include moving The Players Championship from May to March and the PGA Championship from August to May. If they play the following week's WGC event in Memphis, golfers are looking at five tournaments in six weeks to end the season.

The new agreement begins in 2019 and goes through 2023.

The discrepancy in the men's and women's pay was obvious in Sunday's results: The PGA Tour's Greenbrier Classic had a total purse of $7.3 million, with $1.31 million awarded to the victor, Kevin Na; the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic had a total purse of $2 million, with $300,000 awarded to the champion, Kim Sei-young.
