PGA Tour 2014 - 15 Schedule Released

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) --- The PGA Tour released its 2014-15 schedule on Wednesday with a few moving parts.

The Farmers Insurance Open has been moved back one week to Feb. 5-8. That allows the Phoenix Open to end on Feb. 1, the same day as the Super Bowl in Phoenix. And for the first time in 13 years, the West Coast Swing will end with the Northern Trust Open at Riviera.

The Match Play Championship moves from the end of February to the first weekend in May, right before The Players Championship. The Wells Fargo Championship will be held after The Players.

Also, the Quicken Loans National hosted by Tiger Woods will move from late June to two weeks after the British Open, and right before the Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship.

Moving Tiger's event is a bit weird. That means he'll be playing 3 weeks in a row, culminating in a major. I wonder if he had much/any input on that.

I wished they moved the Canadian Open to a less shitty spot in the schedule. I live 10 minutes from the course.

The Phoenix Open should be pushed to mid or late February which would eliminate frost delays which seems to happen almost every year.

 

I don't like having the Superbowl and Phoenix Open in the same weekend especially when they are both in AZ.

Don't like them moving The Match Play to May. I thought it was at a good time in the season already. Now you're putting it back to back with The Players where players will have to go all the way across the country to play. Don't know why they just didn't keep it with The West Coast Swing.

I think they kind of had to because it moved to San Francisco.

The biggest loser in the schedule shakeup is Quail Hollow. The week after the Players has been dead since it moved to May, and with the Match Play slotting itself the week before that, it's going to be impossible for the Wells Fargo Championship to draw the kind of field it has become accustomed to.
