The tournament is slated for television broadcast on The Golf Channel and CBS. "Normally the guys get way more money than we do, so this is a step in the right direction".

PGA Championship moves to May.

- The next PGA Tour event at the Greenbrier Resort won't be played until the fall of 2019, according to a new schedule released Tuesday by the PGA Tour. There is very little time for any lull between the majors.

Putting the Players back in March makes for an incredibly crammed period that will require review.

It will be held from February 21-24, the same week as the World Golf Championships (WGC) Mexico Championship.

The tour will have 46 events over 41 weeks, down from 48 tournaments this year. If you're the Honda Classic or the Valspar Championship, you have to be wondering what you did wrong.

Valspar is followed by the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship and the Valero Texas Open, which precedes the Masters. "Clear bags smaller than 12" x 6" x 12" and 1-gallon plastic freezer bags will be allowed.

Those changes helped create a kind of midsummer Midwest Swing in the month between the USA and British opens: the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit on June 27-30, the 3M Open, and the long-standing John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill., on July 11-14.

How will the Olympic Games fit into the 2020 schedule? Would the FedEx Cup playoffs begin the following week?
