PGA officially moves Greenbrier Golf Tournament to the fall

PGA officially moves Greenbrier Golf Tournament to the fall”

That's right, TPC Twin Cities will be hosting a PGA Tour event during the Fourth of July week in Minnesota.

As part of the agreement, the London-based company will become an official marketing partner of the PGA, as well as being named "official risk, retirement and health advisor" of the PGA Tour.

"We're extremely excited to welcome a World Golf Championships event to Memphis for the first time and announce our 2019 date", said WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational Executive Director Darrell Smith.

The Northern Trust (August 5-11) will rotate between the New York City area and TPC Boston every year starting in 2020.

The tournament is the first to transition from the Champions to the PGA Tour.

"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. The Dell Technologies Championship, formerly the Deutsche Bank Championship, ends after its 2018 event.

The PGA Championship switches from August to May 16-19, with the Players Championship moving to March 14-17.

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

The tour will feature 46 events over 41 weeks, down from 48 tournaments this year. Puerto Rico is slotted for February 18-24, the same week as the WGC-Mexico Championship.

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.

The RBC Canadian Open moves a week before the U.S. Open, held next year at Pebble Beach. The details of the competition, which will be sponsored by Aon, have yet to be completed, but a running tally of the players' scores on the designated holes will be kept and the standings will be updated weekly and publicized on each tour's various media platforms, including CBS for the men, and Golf Channel for the women.

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