PGA Golf Tour Schedule 2019
PGA Tour 2019 –
While much of the United States is enduring the cold of winter, the PGA Tour is keeping it’s rhythm in warm locales at the start of the calendar year. From Hawaii, the west coast, Arizona, Mexico and Florida, all of the Sunshine State’s will hold tournaments leading into March.
The return of the Player’s Championship in March helped promote the flow of the schedule that was hindered when the Players moved to Mother’s Day in 2007 as well as the WGC-Mexico Championship thrown in the mix.
The Arnold Palmer Invitational kicks off March in Orlando, Florida. With the Players and WGC-Match Play, it’s likely that a large portion of big names are missing from the two events following leading up to The Masters.
The end of April features the Zurich Classic in New Orleans followed by the Wells Fargo Classic in North Carolina before heading to Texas. Splitting the two events in North Texas events with the PGA Championship seems counterintuitive. To maintain cohesiveness to the schedule, the PGA should follow those events before heading to Jack’s tournament, The Memorial to close out May and begin June.
The Memorial kicks off a great three weeks of golf, followed by the national opens of Canada and the United States. In fact, the scheduling of the Canadian Open will have it’s earliest finish in the history of the event. The previous earliest finish was June 21, 1959. After the Canadian Open, the tour heads to California for the US Open at Pebble Beach with a 12-million-dollar purse.
Many top players will use the events in Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota that follow to prepare for The Open Championship, held at the Royal Portrush Golf Club from July 18 – 21. Little time for preparation following The Open Championship, the three event FedEx Cup Playoffs begin August 8 at The Northern Trust. Normally a four week event, the TPC Boston left out this year but expected back in 2020.
One of the events is the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, which seems off kilter considering the balance between top events evident throughout much of the other schedule.
The end of 2019, which begins the wrap around schedule for 2019-2020 season will feature events such as the Greenbrier and Houston Open. Generally, the top players take time off, but the new schedule means that over 20 percent of the season is comprised of these fall events. Keep an eye for most top players entering a few of these events.
