First PGA Tour stop in Detroit is full-go for June 2019

First PGA Tour stop in Detroit is full-go for June 2019

The PGA Tour has eliminated a FedEx Cup playoff event as part of a revamped, tighter schedule that will allow its season to end a week before the football season begins in the United States.

After months of teasing, the PGA Tour's return to MI got a name, date and confirmation of location Tuesday. Dubbed the Aon Risk Reward Challenge, the competition will award a player with the best cumulative score on "the most strategically challenging holes across both the PGA Tour and LPGA schedules" next season.

- The PGA Tour unveiled its 46-tournament schedule Tuesday including the new stop in Blaine, Minnesota for the 3M Open during the week of the Fourth of July.

Go ahead and mark June 24-30 on the 2019 calendar.

Valspar is followed by the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship and the Valero Texas Open, which precedes the Masters.

Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, N.J. will host The Northern Trust in 2019, before it shifts to TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., in 2020.

Two tournaments - the Houston Open and A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier (above) - will be played in the fall moving forward and will next be part of the PGA Tour schedule during the 2019-2020 season.

The PGA Tour season will end before the end of August to avoid clashing with the opening American football fixtures. The Players Championship takes its new date in March and is followed by the Valspar Championship, giving Florida a swing of four consecutive events. The move was originally announced previous year.

Two tournaments on the schedule no longer have title sponsors listed with their names - the Mayakoba Classic (previously OHL) in Mexico and Reno-Tahoe in Nevada, which previously had been called the Barracuda Championship.

Still to be determined is whether the PGA Tour will change the structure for the FedEx Cup, and how this new schedule will work in 2020 when the Olympics are in Japan from July 24 to August 9.

While The Open, to be played at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland next year, becomes the last of the four majors, it will be a mad dash to the finish for PGA Tour players. And unlike with the Kodak Challenge, both the victor from the PGA Tour and LPGA will each receive $1 million.
