Tour's 2014-15 schedule: A few changes, 47 events


The PGA Tour announced its complete schedule for the 2014-15 season and there were no surprises. Everything on the schedule had been previously reported, other than the open date during the FedEx Cup playoffs between the Deutsche Bank Championship and the BMW Championship.

With 47 events on the docket, it is two more than the previous season. The two additions were the Barbasol Championship in Alabama opposite the British Open – announced earlier this week – and the return of the Sanderson Farms Championship, which took a year off the schedule and has moved into the fall. It remains in Mississippi but has moved to the Country Club of Jackson.

The most significant change was announced last month. The WGC-Match Play Championship (still without a title sponsor) moves from February to April at Harding Park and occupies the spot traditionally held by the Wells Fargo Championship, the week before The Players. Wells Fargo has moved to the week after The Players.

The Open begins the season on October 9 at Silverado Resort and is the first of seven events before the Tour takes a six-week break.

Once the calendar turns to 2015 a minor change is that the Waste Management Phoenix Open and the Farmers Insurance Open have switched spots. The Phoenix event will be played first and will end on Feb. 1, the same day the Super Bowl is played in Phoenix. The Quicken Loans National, the event that benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation moves from the end of June to July 30-Aug. 2, the week between the RBC Canadian Open and the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

The first two FedEx Cup playoff events will be played in September, then there will be a week off before the final two events are played. The final day of the season is September 27 at the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club. There will be a week off following that, then the Presidents Cup is October 8-11.
