USPGA to be moved to May in 2019
Blimey, the season will be over by July!
So now it goes... The Masters; USPGA; US Open; The Open... From next year the PGA Championship, traditionally the golf season's final major, will follow the US Masters.
It means The Open – which will continue to be held in July – will become the last major in the calendar.
The PGA Tour season will end before the end of August to avoid clashing with the opening American football fixtures.
The Players Championship 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.
"And by concluding at the end of August, the FedEx Cup play-offs no longer have the challenge of sharing the stage with college and professional football."
This year's Open takes place from 19-22 July at Carnoustie in Scotland, with the PGA Championship in Missouri from 9-12 August.
