Excited Lahiri gives thumbs-up to new PGA Tour schedule

The Barbasol Championship, the only PGA TOUR tournament in Kentucky, will be played Thursday through Sunday, July 19-22, at Champions at Keene Trace in Nicholasville, just outside Lexington. "The Aon Risk Reward Challenge will bring an exciting new season-long competition to our Tour with a very significant $1 million prize for our victor".

The overhauled calendar, created to end before the National Football League season kicks off, will conclude with the Tour Championship from August 19-25 at Atlanta's East Lake Club.

In a 10-week stretch come two of the tour's most iconic tournaments (Pebble and Riviera), two WGCs, Arnold Palmer's tournament, the tour's signature event in the Players and the year's first major - the Masters. It is one of two new events in rotation for the tour next season.

The Houston Open and A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier will move to the fall and will be played next as part of the 2019-20 schedule, and will therefore not feature in 2018-19.

5-11, 2019) will rotate between the New York/New Jersey area and Boston starting next year.

The start of the schedule in the fall - which, after the Safeway, takes the tour overseas for three events in Asia - is basically the same through the Genesis Open at Riviera in late February.

The most significant change is the PGA Championship moving from its traditional August date to May. 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.

Dejan Lovren Says He's One Of The Best Defenders In The World
I think people should recognise that I am also one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense. In the last few seasons he's always scored more than 25 goals and he's one of the best strikers in the world.

The Rocket Mortgage Classic in June is the first PGA Tour event to be held in Detroit and takes the place of the Quicken Loans National, meaning Tiger Woods loses one of the events that benefits his foundation.

How will the PGA Tour crown its FedEx Cup champion?

"It's the goal of the (US Tour) to have more tournaments in Australia, to generate more corporate support and to grow the game in Australia".

The 101st PGA Championship will be staged from May 16-19 at Bethpage Black, with the US Open four weeks later at Pebble Beach from June 13-16 and the British Open concluding the Major schedule from July 18-21 at Portrush in Northern Ireland.

The RBC Canadian Open will also move from the week following the Open Championship to a spot before the U.S. Open.

The season-long Aon Risk Reward Challenge will culminate in a US$1 million prize for the player at the top of the Aon-led rankings on both the PGA and LPGA tours.
