PGA Championship move signals major shift in calendar

The Florida Times-Union, the largest newspaper in the US PGA Tour's headquarters area where the Players is contested, cited two unnamed sources saying schedule details would be announced on Tuesday at the 99th PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.

The PGA Championship will move to May in 2019, according to a report from the Associated Press.

A potential benefit for the 2019 PGA is that the Black Course will not have to endure the rigors of a tough, hot summer before the major championship.

And this also will shift The Players Championship, which is dubbed as golf's "fifth major", from May to March, giving the sport five consecutive months of marquee tournaments. Southern Hills, which last hosted the PGA in 2007, has also been promised as a host site sometime before 2030.

"They laid it out in front of us". PGA of America CEO Pete Bevacqua is scheduled to hold a joint press conference with PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan on Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET, and that's nearly certainly when the move will be made with an official announcement. The Playoffs, which have become a resounding success after some uncertainty in their nascent years, primarily run concurrent with football season and obviously become overshadowed for TV and among even the most ardent golf fans. Everyone was against the FedEx Cup at the start, and it's turned into a great thing for the tour. "We get to August, and that excitement kind of dwindles a little".

"I think it doesn't matter from the standpoint of the PGA being in August or May because it's a major and we'll all be ready no matter when it's played", Rickie Fowler told Shedloski.

It was his sixth PGA Tour victory, all since reaching the age of 35 in 2014, but he has not won this season while battling lyme disease and mononucleosis. "The schedule will be more uniform from March to August as far as big events, which will probably be a good thing".
