New PGA Tour schedule boosts Aust hopes

PGA Rocket Mortgage Classic to be played in Detroit in June

The PGA Tour released its 2019 schedule on Tuesday, officially announcing Minnesota's first tour stop in five decades will be played July 4-7 at the TPC Twin Cities course in Blaine.

Other changes see the RBC Canadian Open switch from late July to the week before the US Open, while the final World Golf Championship event of the season will now be WGC-Fed Ex St Jude Invitational and held at TPC Southwind.

The Players Championship - often described as the unofficial fifth major - has been moved to March from its previous date in May, with the end-of-season FedEx Cup play-offs shortened to three events and finishing on 25 August.

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. "This event will introduce hundreds of thousands of visitors to the vibrant art, restaurants, architecture, technology scene and nightlife that has emerged right here in Detroit". Those Playoffs will end in August prior to the start of football season beginning in 2019. "We feel strongly that together, we have created a schedule that will heighten interest in all tournaments while further elevating the FedExCup Playoffs".

As Phillips says, on the whole, the USA leader may not get the reception in Britain that he had hoped for. Trump is deeply unpopular among the British public , though a majority support his visit to the country.

The PGA Tour's 2018-19 season will look significantly different than in years past, a reality for months that became official Tuesday when commissioner Jay Monahan announced the details.

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

Players from all over the USA and even outside the country are competing in this week's Girls Junior PGA Championship in Lexington. Fathauer recorded two Top-10 finishes during the 2016-17 season, and despite having only one Top-10 finish this season, he comes in on a hot streak, having made the cut in four of his last six tournament starts. Keeneland also will play host to the Concours d'Elegance auto show on Saturday, July 21, so spectators are encouraged to purchase parking passes in advance to secure a spot at the track.

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. It is going to be very interesting with the schedule becoming more compact as well.
