For the first time in 12 years and the PGA Tour will go back to a proper January to December 12 month competition schedule, boasting 12 ‘Signature’ tournaments but also a dozen events less than the 44 featuring in the 2022/23 wraparound season.

It means a 36 tournament season starting the first week of January 2024 in Hawaii and finishing 12 months later with the PNC Championship closing down just three days prior to Christmas.

The 2024 PGA Tour season will also feature the three FedEx Cup Playoff events commencing from the second week of August to the first Sunday in September.


It will then see a ‘Fall Series’ starting two weeks later featuring 12 events that also includes the late September hosting of the Presidents Cup.

It will mean, and very much like this past week, the Fall Series will be held in the week prior to the Play-Offs, and with the Wyndham Championship again being the ‘Last Chance Saloon’ into the Play-Offs.

“We are excited about the roll-out of the PGA Tour’s reimagined schedule and what the season will offer to our fans: a January start with stars competing head-to-head more often, alongside the weekly drama of life-altering moments and the emergence of new stars,” said commissioner Jay Monahan.

The are eight “signature events”, which were initially called designated events but had the moniker “elevated” events during the 2022-23 season.

The eight are:

  • The Sentry
  • AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am
  • The Genesis Invitational
  • Arnold Palmer Invitational
  • RBC Heritage
  • Wells Fargo Championship
  • The Memorial Tournament
  • The Travelers Championship

As widely predicted, the three player-hosted invitationals – Genesis, APR, Memorial – will have a 36-hole cut; the other five will not.

The Farmers Insurance Open in January in San Diego will again feature a Saturday finish for the third consecutive season.

For the third year, there are three tournaments that will also be part of the DP World Tour’s Race to Dubai: Genesis Scottish Open, the event scheduled for July 11-14 (formerly the Barbasol Championship) and the Barracuda Championship in July.

There is a break in the schedule for the Olympic men’s competition in France in August.

The playoffs are the FedEx St. Jude Championship at TPC Southwind in Memphis, the BMW Championship at Castle Pines Golf Club in Castle Rock, Colorado, for the first time (Castle Pines hosted the International from 1986-2006) and the Tour Championship, which is once again at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

The FedEx Cup champion in 2024 will bank a $25 million bonus.
