  • PGA Tour cut FedExCup play-offs to three events in 2018-19 schedule

The 3M Open will be held the week of July 1-7 in 2019.

"By concluding at the end of August, the FedEx Cup playoffs no longer have the challenge of sharing the stage with college and professional football (NFL)", Monahan said. It is going to be very interesting with the schedule becoming more compact as well. The Dell Technologies Open in Boston will be the odd tournament out.

As expected, the "Rocket Mortgage Classic" will be played at the Detroit Golf Club on June 24 through June 30, 2019. It was a natural progression to rotate between the two markets and continue to tell this tournament's story as the kickoff to the FedExCup Playoffs.

Houston and Greenbrier are to return to the fall portion of the schedule in 2019.

Horschel, 31, will be joining 1997 PGA Championship victor Davis Love III and the LPGA's Brittany Lincicome in the 132-player field at Champions at Keene Trace in Nicholasville, KY, just outside Lexington.

The wraparound season starts October 4-7 with the Safeway Open in Napa, California, one week after the Ryder Cup in France. Coinciding with the PGA Championship's first May dates since 1949 will be its debut at Bethpage Black on New York's Long Island. Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament takes its usual spot two weeks before the U.S. Open, with the Canadian Open in between.

The Open Championship, meanwhile, will be held at Royal Portrush July 15-21, marking its return to Northern Ireland after almost 70 years. Top players then go straight to Tennessee for the FedEx Cup Invitational, a World Golf Championship in Memphis that replaces the event held at Firestone in Ohio.

"We are getting into the final stretch of the regular season, so I am focused on making a strong push beginning in Lexington toward improving my ranking for this year's FedExCup Playoffs", said Horschel, a two-time Southeastern Conference Player of the Year (2007, 2009) and SEC Conference Champion (2009) while at the University of Florida.

Here's the schedule in minuscule print; for the complete list, tap here. The Ryder Cup in 2020 will be September 25-27 at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.

While two new events in Detroit, Michigan and Minnesota will be bookended by the US and British Opens, other tweaks recently revealed include the Canadian Open securing the pre-US Open slot and the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational moving from OH to Memphis, Tennessee.

That meant a significant shakeup would occur, so there should have been no surprises when commissioner Jay Monahan announced the official version that includes 46 events in 2018-19 and an earlier conclusion before Labor Day.
