- The FedExCup Playoffs will comprise of three events, instead of four. Those three are THE NORTHERN TRUST (August 5-11), the BMW Championship (August 12-18), and the TOUR Championship (August 19-25). Starting in 2020, the NORTHERN TRUST will swap between a New York City area host and TPC Boston every year.
- Two new events have been added: the Rocket Mortgage Classic (June 24-30, in Detroit), and the 3M Open (July 1-7, in Minneapolis), which was previously a PGA TOUR Champions tournament.
- The RBC Canadian Open will move up one month, from late July to early June (3-9).
- THE PLAYERS Championship moves up two months, from May to March (11-17).
- The PGA Championship moves from August to May (13-19).
- The Houston Open and A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier will be played as part of the 2019-20 schedule in the fall.
