For one last time, the PGA TOUR will run with its wrap-around season, starting this fall and ending next summer, before big changes are likely in store for professional golf in fall 2023.
The recently released 2022-23 PGA TOUR schedule features all the usual suspects with little surprises. The season will start in Napa next month at the Silverado Resort and Spa for the Fortinet Championship and end with a shortened FedExCup playoffs of only three tournaments at exclusive private clubs next August.
Traveling golfers will recognize all the household names of bucket-list destinations - an early West Coast swing that includes Kapalua in Maui; PGA West, Pebble Beach and Torrey Pines in California and TPC Scottsdale in Arizona, followed by a Florida Swing of PGA National, Bay Hill, TPC Sawgrass and Innisbrook. With the threat of more players defecting to the LIV Golf Invitational Series, it will be interesting to see how that impacts the TOUR's future schedule. Which long-standing courses and tournaments might survive or be discarded?
The other unfortunate news is only one major will be held at a publicly accessible course next year - The 2023 Open at Royal Liverpool. The future schedules of the U.S. Open and PGA Championship leave little regard for public venues. The next in line are the public anchor sites for the U.S. Open - 2024 at Pinehurst No. 2 and 2027 at Pebble Beach - and the 2027 PGA Championship on the yet-to-open East Course of the new PGA Frisco Resort in Texas.
The good news is that GolfPass offers $100 off for members who book select golf packages. It's our way of encouraging everybody to "Play Where The Pros Play".
