PGA Tour releases official schedule for 2024; FedEx champ to get $25 million

The PGA Tour officially released its 2024 schedule Monday.

The season will be a calender-year schedule for the first time since 2012. There are 36 regular-season events, down from 44 this season. There are still three FedEx Cup Playoff events.

The fall part of the schedule will finalize the top 125 for the 2025 season as only the top 70 finishers in the FEC standings earn their way into the postseason, a move that started this season.

The first regular-season event in 2024 is now called The Sentry and will be followed by the Sony Open in Hawaii. The first stateside event will be The American Express in Palm Desert, California.

“We are excited about the roll-out of the PGA Tour’s reimagined schedule and what the season will offer to our fans: a January start with stars competing head-to-head more often, alongside the weekly drama of life-altering moments and the emergence of new stars,” said commissioner Jay Monahan.

The are eight “signature events”, which were initially called designated events but had the moniker “elevated” events during the 2022-23 season.

The eight are:

The Sentry
 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am
The Genesis Invitational
Arnold Palmer Invitational
RBC Heritage
Wells Fargo Championship
The Memorial Tournament
The Travelers Championship

The three player-hosted invitationals – Genesis, APR, Memorial – will have a 36-hole cut; the other five will not.

The Farmers Insurance Open in January in San Diego will again feature a Saturday finish for the third consecutive season.

For the third year, there are three tournaments that will also be part of the DP World Tour’s Race to Dubai: Genesis Scottish Open, the event scheduled for July 11-14 (formerly the Barbasol Championship) and the Barracuda Championship in July.

There is a break in the schedule for the Olympic men’s competition in France in August.

The playoffs are the FedEx St. Jude Championship at TPC Southwind in Memphis, the BMW Championship at Castle Pines Golf Club in Castle Rock, Colorado, for the first time (Castle Pines hosted the International from 1986-2006) and the Tour Championship, which is once again at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

The FedEx Cup champion in 2024 will bank a $25 million bonus.
