The PGA Tour has officially released the fall portion of the 2017-18 schedule, a seven-week stretch that will feature eight official events including a new tournament in South Korea.

The new season will kick off Oct. 5 with the Safeway Open in Napa, Calif., just days after the conclusion of the Presidents Cup. The Sanderson Farms Championship will remain opposite the WGC-HSBC Champions, while the inaugural, 78-player CJ Cup at Nine Bridges has been added in between stops in Malaysia and China.

The Tour plans to announce the remainder of the schedule "at a later date." Here's a look at the fall portion, including three unofficial events in December:
