ATLANTA – The PGA TOUR announced its 2018-19 schedule on Tuesday, with the TOUR Championship set to be contested August 21-25, 2019 at East Lake Golf Club for a 16th consecutive time and 19th visit all time. The TOUR Championship will continue to welcome the top 30 players in the FedExCup standings to the PGA TOUR’s season finale in Atlanta, where both the winner of the TOUR Championship and the season-long FedExCup will be crowned.

“We’re proud to continue welcoming the PGA TOUR season’s best 30 players back to East Lake Golf Club, a venue that has been the backdrop to so much drama over the years and consistently receives rave reviews from our players,” said Executive Director Allison Fillmore. “With a lull in the sports calendar during the month of August, we’re confident this move will heighten fan engagement and media interest, and further elevate the importance of the FedExCup Playoffs and the TOUR Championship.”

With the PGA TOUR moving up the 2018-19 schedule to conclude in August, the FedExCup Playoffs were reduced from four events to three and the Dell Technologies Championship in the Boston area was removed from the 2019 schedule to accommodate the changes. THE NORTHERN TRUST will remain the first FedExCup Playoffs event and continue to welcome the top 125 in the FedExCup standings when it returns to Liberty National Golf Club in 2019. The Playoffs field will then be trimmed to the top 70 for the BMW Championship, which will be staged at Medinah Country Club outside Chicago.

The top 30 will once again return to Atlanta and East Lake Golf Club, where each player in the field will have a mathematical chance to claim the FedExCup as the season-long champion and a $10 million bonus.

This year’s TOUR Championship will again conclude the FedExCup Playoffs September 19-23, 2018 at East Lake Golf Club. 2017 PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year Xander Schauffele is the defending champion.
