The addition of new tournaments in Detroit and Minnesota is offset by eliminating the FedEx Cup playoff event in Boston, the Quicken Loans National that had been run by the Tiger Woods Foundation in the Washington, D.C. area, and a year off for the Houston Open and Greenbrier.

The PGA TOUR, on behalf of the International Federation of PGA Tours, announced in April that Memphis' hometown event will take on a new identity as the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, beginning with the 2018-19 PGA TOUR Season.

PGA Tour officials announced a new professional golf tournament is coming to Detroit in 2019.

Houston and Greenbrier are to return to the fall portion of the schedule in 2019.

After The Open and WGC-FedEx St. Jude, the Wyndham Championship will conclude the regular season, followed by playoff events for the top 125 (Northern Trust), top 70 (BMW Championship) and top 30 (Tour Championship) in FedEx Cup points.

"The PGA TOUR stop in Detroit is the latest major announcement confirming Detroit is well on its way to becoming one of our country's premier entertainment destinations", Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner said in the original release.

Bugatti Divo announced - a more dynamic €5m Bugatti hypercar
The Divo is the next step in Bugatti's continuing history of building the most covetable vehicles on the planet. Bugatti has confirmed that a track-focused auto based on its Chiron hypercar, named Divo, is on the way.

Next year's Northern Trust will return to Liberty National in Jersey City, New Jersey, before heading to TPC Boston in 2020.

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. So other than a tour pro potentially changing his/her schedule, essentially, you just play tournaments and hope to score well on the selected holes.

The WGC-Mexico Championship moves up a week following Genesis and precedes the Honda Classic and Arnold Palmer Invitational.

After the RBC Heritage and Zurich Classic of New Orleans comes the Wells Fargo Championship. Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament takes its usual spot two weeks before the U.S. Open, with the Canadian Open in between.

It means the Open Championship - which will continue to be held in July - will become the last major in the calendar.

The two tours announced a season-long competition with Aon on Monday.
