The US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, which will return to the one-year season from 2024, released some schedules for next year’s season on the 8th (Korean time).
Unlike the previous two years, the single-year season starts in January and ends at the end of August. The PGA Tour adopted a single-year season until 2012, and since 2013, the season has been conducted in a multi-year format, starting in September and ending in August of the following year.
The 2024 PGA Tour will open with the Sentry Tournament of Champions starting on January 8th. A total of 36 tournaments are held every week, from the Sentry Tournament of Champions to the Tour Championship, the final round of the playoffs (PO).
The most notable change with the return of the one-year system is that 5 of the 8 ‘signature competitions’, which were previously called special competitions, will be held without cuts. AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, RBC Heritage, Wells Fargo Championship, and Travelers Championship will also have no cuts in addition to the Sentry Tournament of Champions, which originally had no cuts. Instead, the number of participating players will be reduced to less than 80. There are no cuts in PO competitions, so there are a total of 8 uncut competitions.메이저놀이터
The eight competitions, which include five no-cut competitions and three invitational tournaments, including the Genesis Invitational, Arnold Palmer Invitational, and Memorial Tournament, are signature competitions that top players must participate in with a total prize pool of at least $20 million. Unlike last season, the WM Phoenix Open was omitted from the eight signature events this year, and the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was newly introduced. The prize money for the eight signature tournaments will rise to $4 million, just like LIV Golf.
A total of 16 competitions, including 8 signature competitions, 4 major competitions, the Players Championship, and 3 POs, are expected to be held mainly by top players.
The PGA Tour decided to exclude from this announcement the schedule for the fall series event held after the Tour Championship is over and to be confirmed at a later date.
