PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – The PGA Tour has announced its 2014-2015 schedule, which features 47 FedExCup events – two more than the current season. The two new events will be conducted the same week as the HSBC Champions in November and British Open in July.
The biggest change in the schedule is the move of the WGC-Match Play Championship from February to April 27-May 3, one week prior to The Players Championship. That spot traditionally has been held by the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, N.C., which for 2015 will be played the week immediately after the Players.
The two Texas tournaments that immediately follow, the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and AT&T Byron Nelson Championship, also switch places in the schedule. Another significant shift is the Quicken Loans National near Washington, D.C., moving from late June to the week of July 27-August 2.
The FedExCup Playoffs begin the week of Aug. 24-30, when The Barclays returns to Plainfield Country Club in New Jersey, where it was held in 2011; and the third playoff event, the BMW Championship, returns to Conway Farms outside of Chicago, where it was contested in 2013.
Finally, the Sanderson Farms Championship returns to the schedule with a new venue after a one-season absence. It will be played Nov. 3-9 at the Country Club of Jackson (Miss.), the same week as the WGC-HSBC Champions in Asia. It was last held in July 2013 during the same week as the British Open, a slot that now will be occupied by the new Barbasol Championship on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Alabama.
