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

Perhaps Australia's best shot at securing an official United States tour event is to slot into the Tour's Asia swing in October - when events take place in Malaysia, Korea and China.

The tournament is slated for television broadcast on The Golf Channel and CBS. Understandably, not everything will be ideal, and so we take a look at the good - and the not-so-good. Further, the playoffs can start earlier with the PGA Championship moving to May instead of August.

He won the New Orleans event in 2013 (contested at individual stroke play) for his first PGA TOUR victory, the 2014 BMW Championship and TOUR Championship en route to his FedExCup crown, and the 2017 AT&T Byron Nelson Championship. There is very little time for any lull between the majors. The Mexico Championship will move to the end of the West Coast Swing, giving Florida four straight tournaments in March.

Putting the Players back in March makes for an incredibly crammed period that will require review. Puerto Rico is slotted for February 18-24, the same week as the WGC-Mexico Championship. Two new tournaments will also come in. If you're the Honda Classic or the Valspar Championship, you have to be wondering what you did wrong.

It outlined that the player from each tour that places top of the Aon leaderboard at the end of the regular season will each receive US$1 million.

On Independence Day, after a day of golf, fans will be treated to a music concert - held on the 18th fairway or driving range, pending PGA Tour approval - and then a fireworks show at the end of the evening. Next year, the Tour Championship in Atlanta will be played the weekend before Labor Day.

The World Golf Championships consistently attract the most elite and global fields of the year, with 40-50 of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Ranking teeing it up in the series of four annual events. It is unclear at this point if the schedule will allow for some spacing in the future.

The Canadian Open will move from late July to June 6-9 as a lead-in to the US Open the following week.

The Shell Houston Open is being replaced as the lead up to The Masters by another Texas event, the Valero Texas Open. To do this, the PGA TOUR has chose to shorten the FedExCup playoffs.
