PGA TOUR Tournament Schedule for 2015-16 Season
The PGA TOUR 2015-16 season schedule will have 47 FedExCup tournaments, which includes two new title sponsors and sever- al notable date and golf course changes. The PGA TOUR welcomes Dell as the new title sponsor of the World Golf Champion- ships-Dell Match Play and CareerBuilder as the title sponsor of the CareerBuilder Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation. Held this past May in San Francisco, the Dell Match Play shifts to March 21-27 at Austin Country Club in Dell’s hometown of Austin, Texas (The Puerto Rico Open also moves to that same week after being held concurrently with the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship since 2008). The CareerBuilder Challenge, meanwhile, is adding PGA WEST’s Stadium Course and Nicklaus Tournament Course to its three-course rotation, joining La Quinta Country Club. The McGladrey Classic is the other PGA TOUR tournament that is adding a new golf course – Sea Island Resort’s Plantation Course – as it goes to a two-course rotation while moving from the third week of the season to November 16-22, the final week before the TOUR breaks until January.
Other significant date changes are due to golf’s return to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and the men’s competition being held August 11-14. • The PGA Championship (July 25- 31), Travelers Championship (August 1-7) and John Deere Clas- sic (August 8-14), are making a one -time shift before returning to their traditional dates for the 2016-17 season. The Travelers Championship’s move from late June will also allow significant course enhancements to be completed before the tournament. Additionally, the Quicken Loans National (June 20-26), World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and Barracuda Champion- ship (both June 27-July 3) are moving earlier on the schedule. The Quicken Loans National is also among several tournaments returning to familiar golf courses as it will move back to Congressional Country Club as part of its announced rotation.
