The PGA Tour’s 2024 schedule includes dates for major championships, signature events, and the FedEx Cup.

In 2024, the PGA Tour season will start in a new way. The golf world will start over. Things will start at The Plantation Course in Kapalua, Maui, HI, as they always do for The Sentry, which is no longer the Tournament of Champions.

We already got a taste of the new system for the PGA Tour with the FedEx Cup Fall. This is because new money is about to be put into the tour. The whole golf season will happen in 2024, so we won’t have to watch a season that goes around and around. Along with that, marked events have been taken away and replaced with signature events.

The 2024 PGA Tour schedule has new events, a new format, and when are the big championships. What are these events and how will they work? As a golf fan, here’s what you need to know to keep up this season.

For 2024, the PGA Tour and FedEx Cup will use new formats.

There will be 36 events on the new PGA Tour model. These include eight signature events (more on those in a moment), THE PLAYERS Championship, four major championships, and three FedEx Cup Playoff events.

It’s important to note that the FedEx Cup Fall decided the final 125 players who won full PGA Tour status for the 2024 season. These players can now play in any of the 18 regular full-field events or five extra events during the PGA Tour season. The FedEx Cup Playoffs race will begin with The Sentry, the first event of the year. All Tour players will start with no points in the standings.

At the end of the Wyndham Championship, the top 70 golfers in the FedEx Cup standings will be able to play in the first playoff event, the FedEx St. Jude Championship. The Top 50 after the St. Jude go on to the BMW Championship, and the Top 30 after that event go on to the TOUR Championship, where the scores start out in a different order each year.

What are some of the most important games on the PGA Tour?

In the simplest terms, signature events are the new name for the PGA Tour events that were known as designated events last season. But there will be a small change in how to qualify for the main events on the PGA Tour in 2024.

Signature events will have between 70 and 80 players, and only The Genesis Invitational, The Arnold Palmer Invitational, and The Memorial will have cuts (Top 50 and ties). The other events will not have cuts. Plus, the winner will get 700 FedEx Cup points.

Importantly, the top 50 players from the PGA Tour’s 2022–23 FedEx Cup season can play in all signature events in 2024. The same goes for “The Next 10,” which is made up of the players who ended 51st to 60th in the FedEx Cup Fall standings going into the Sentry. After The Sentry, AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and The Genesis, “The Next 10” will be made up of the top 10 players in the current results who are not exempt in any other way.

Five more spots in signature events called “The Swing 5” will also get golfers into these events. These are the top five FedEx Cup point winners from the full-field tournaments that came before the signature events.
