US PGA unveils revamped 2018-19 schedule with shorter playoffs

It marks the first time the PGA Tour has hosted a tournament in Detroit's city limits and will be the first PGA event in the state since the defunct Buick Open at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc 1958-2009.

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 Boston hosted a FedEx Cup playoff event each Labor Day weekend since 2003, last year and this as the Dell Technologies Championship and as the Deutsche Bank Championship for its first 14 years. Here's the full PGA schedule.

In both June and July of next year, one new tournament will make its debut on the PGA Tour schedule.

The US PGA playoffs will now start August 8-11 with the Northern Trust, which will be played near NY in 2019 and Boston in 2020 as the cities exchange host rights each year rather than each hosting a playoff event as they will this year.

The PGA Championship will be May 16-19 at Bethpage Black on Long Island, splitting part of the Texas swing - the AT&T Byron Nelson in Dallas will be the week before the PGA, and the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial will be the week after the PGA.

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. Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament takes its usual spot two weeks before the U.S. Open, with the Canadian Open in between. "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".

Still to be determined is when the new fall schedule will begin in 2019 and how many tournaments will be part of it.
