Currently the PGA Tour is ready to begin talking about 2023, finalizing the company’s full schedule of 47 events for the 2022-23 length of time and announcing changes to typically the FedEx Cup and massive bag increases to go with them.

All of the changes really begin in Hawaii, some of the unofficial start to the season, computer purse of the Sentry Match of Champions rises across $15 million. Not floored? That’s $15 million ones over a limited field on-line, historically, 32-34 players. The fact mega-millions payout structure carries on during the West Coast hit with. The Tour will hand out $101. 5 million having prize money during a time of six weeks that begins with the Genesis Invitational in just mid-February and runs to WGC-Match Play in late Goal.   It’ll include a enormous prize of $25 huge number of at the Players Championship.

How? The Vacation reallocated funds in order to boost specific events like the Genesis Invitational, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and the WGCs. For instance, Scottie Scheffler ‘s pockets would be even deeper brand name new structure.

Other notable schedule will moce were outlined neatly courtesy of my colleague Dylan Dethier on Twitter:

The meeting directors and TV broadcasters both saw value to the Tuesday night finish for the January event. Renowned, the Farmers’ final cool round competed for attention with NFL’s championship weekend, adult the event bowed out of that will fight last year. That means we’ve got Wednesday to Wednesday golf at Torrey Pines again in 2023.  

We will at the same time see Congaree host relating to next season. The South Carolina course hosted the Palmetto Championship in 2021 post RBC Canadian Open was most canceled due to the pandemic. Congaree will host the actual 2022 CJ Cup as mid-October, just a few weeks inside your new season.  

One week after that, the Butterfield Bermuda Championship will see residence winner take home Tour-status, $1. 17 million, and an excellent invite to Augusta National. The Tour’s decision across ditch the WGC-HSBC Champs, which will not be contested final season, means the LABELLISÉ BASSE CONSOMMATION is leveling up. This winner will earn a strong invite to play in the 2023 Masters.  

Lastly, the 2023 FedEx Cup is set for an modernize. The Tour playoffs will track the same three-tournament structure that season, with the FedEx St . Jude Championship preceding of the BMW Championship, which precedes the Tour Championship. However , the fields will look completely different. Only 70 players ‘ll qualify for the FedEx Wine glass Playoffs, a far cry from the a hundred and twenty-five that will take part this year. As from those 70, a hundred will advance to the BMW Championship, and then 30 with your Tour Championship. The 51 who make it to Olympia Markets for the BMW are expected in order to be featured in a high-money number of international events in the slide of 2023.

More details on those demonstrations will be shared at a later time, while this will notably be the finishing Tour season (barring almost any unforeseen changes) with a wraparound schedule beginning in September. As a replacement, the 2023-24 schedule really does officially begin in January on top of that run through August. So indulge in your final wraparound book, folks! It may be gone for sound.
