PGA confirmed the place and time of the new Detroit tournament on Tuesday morning with the release of their 2018-2019 schedule.

The season-long Aon Risk Reward Challenge will culminate in a US$1 million prize for the player at the top of the Aon-led rankings on both the PGA and LPGA tours.

The FedEx Cup Playoffs drop from four events to three, starting much earlier in the summer.

PGA TOUR Commissioner, Jay Monahan, directly admitted that the shortened schedule was due to the effect of competing with the NFL and college football seasons. "It's been our stated objective for several years to create better sequencing of our tournaments that golf fans around the world can engage in from start to finish".

Five-time PGA TOUR Winner and 2014 FedExCup Champion Billy Horschel has committed to the July 19-22 Barbasol Championship, it was announced today by tournament Executive Director Brooks Downing.

The PGA Championship move to May gives the event a jolt, a chance to explore other venues in some not-so-hot-and-rainy August climates while also moving up in the order and continuing interest levels from the Masters through to the U.S. Open. The BMW Championship will be held at Chicago's Medinah No. 3 in 2019 followed by the Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta.

A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier does not appear on the schedule because it is being moved to a fall slot, and will be included on the 2019-2020 Tour schedule. Then there is considerable change from past years. Puerto Rico is slotted for February 18-24, the same week as the WGC-Mexico Championship. The Mexico Championship will move to the end of the West Coast Swing, giving Florida four straight tournaments in March.

The tour really gets busy at the British Open, set for next year at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland. Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament takes its usual spot two weeks before the U.S. Open, with the Canadian Open in between.

The PGA is scheduled for Bethpage next year, for Trump National in New Jersey in 2022 and Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y.in 2023 - inviting potentially troublesome weather and agronomy issues in those parts of the country in mid-May.

The deal with the main men's and women's golfing circuits of North America will see an annual leaderboard calculate player performance on the most strategically challenging holes throughout the regular season.
