US PGA Championship to move from August to May in tour revamp

Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament takes its usual spot two weeks before the U.S. Open, with the Canadian Open in between.

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. The PGA Tour will return to the Detroit and Minneapolis areas and leave Washington, D.C. Events in Houston and West Virginia will sit out next season before returning in 2019. TPC Boston will remain part of the FedExCup Playoffs, rotating with greater New York City every other year as the host of The Northern Trust, beginning in 2020. It will replace the 3M Championship, which is now a stop on the Champions Tour.

The post-season will now consist of the Northern Trust, BMW Championship and the Tour Championship, with the TPC Boston event dropping off the schedule.

The 2018-19 season tees off October 4-7 with the Safeway Open in Napa, Calif. The Players' Championship is also moving from May to mid-March. The Dallas and Fort Worth tournaments are split by the PGA Championship, which will be played at Bethpage Black (May 16-19) as part of its new May date.

Iran to continue oil exports despite USA disruptive measures: Zanganeh
Even if the Europeans cave in to United States demands, the world has changed a great deal since the pre-Iran deal era. Now, President Trump is threatening sanctions against any country that continues to do business with Iran.

It means the Open Championship - which will continue to be held in July - will become the last major in the calendar.

Preparations for the final Dell Technologies Championship are underway and the 100-player field will have its unique Monday finish for one last time on September 3.

Two tournaments on the schedule no longer have title sponsors listed with their names - the Mayakoba Classic (previously OHL) in Mexico and Reno-Tahoe in Nevada, which previously had been called the Barracuda Championship.

The WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational will be one of four World Golf Championships events on the 2018-19 PGA TOUR schedule sanctioned and organized by the International Federation of PGA Tours. The Ryder Cup in 2020 will be September 25-27 at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. "The four days of competition will feature the best players in the world". That leaves 11 weeks when the PGA Tour does not have an official event.
