The PGA Tour announced its schedule for the 2018-19 season, and changes were abound for some of the sport's biggest events.

As previously announced, the Players Championship was moved back to March (11-17) and the PGA Championship moves from August to May (13-19), giving the Tour a huge event in every month from March through September.

The FedEx Cup Playoffs also got a makeover, as it will now feature three events instead of four: The Northern Trust (August 5-11), the BMW Championship (August 12-18), and the TOUR Championship (August 19-25). TPC Boston will continue as a Playoffs site every other year, rotating with the Northern Trust.

Two new tournaments have been added with the Rocket Mortgage Classic on June 24-30, the first Tour event to be held in the city of Detroit; and the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities on July 1-7, which becomes the first Champions tournament to transition to the PGA Tour.

The Houston Open and A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier are moving to the fall and will be played next as part of the 2019-20 schedule.

The final World Golf Championships event of the season, which had been staged in Akron, Ohio, at the famed Firestone Country Club, will be held July 22-28 at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tenn., as the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational (replacing the FedEx St. Jude Classic).
