Purse jumps, Signature Events – the PGA Tour will look very different in 2024. Here’s what you can expect

 

It’s all change for the 2024 PGA Tour season – with more prize money, elevated events, and a new schedule.

We take a look at what’s coming and reveal the full 36-tournament calendar for 2024…

2024 PGA Tour schedule: What’s new

We’re back on a calendar year

Did you miss it? For the first time since 2012, the PGA Tour returns to a calendar year schedule – running from the start of January until the beginning of September. The FedEx Cup fall events, which will finalise the top 125 for 2025, are set to be announced later.

2024 PGA Tour schedule 2024

Signature events

You knew them as ‘designated’ events and there are now eight in all: The Sentry, Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Genesis Invitational, Arnold Palmer Invitational, RBC Heritage, Wells Fargo Championship, The Memorial, and Travelers Championship.

Pebble Beach is a new addition and the traditional format gets a tweak for 2024.The amateurs compete alongside 80 professionals for the first two rounds only, with the tournament finishing over the weekend with the final 36 holes at Pebble Beach.

The signature events are limited field, with increased prize funds, but three of them – Genesis Invitational, Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Memorial – retain a cut. The top 50 and ties, and any player within 10 shots of the lead, will make the weekend.

A PGA Tour statement said of eligibility: “The Sentry is the season’s first Signature Event and includes PGA Tour winners from the previous calendar year as well as the top 50 members from the 2022-23 FedExCup standings (i.e. those who qualify for the BMW Championship, the second FedExCup Playoffs event).

“Eligibility for the remaining seven Signature Events (field sizes anticipated to be between 70-80 players) includes the top 50 members from the 2022-23 FedExCup standings and 15 members who can play their way in through The Next 10 and The Swing 5.

“The Next 10 represents the top 10 members, not otherwise exempt, from the FedExCup standings. The Swing 5 includes the top five FedExCup points earners, not otherwise exempt, from the swing of Full-Field and Additional events preceding each Signature Event.”

The field will also include those PGA Tour members inside the top 30 of the world rankings and select tournament exemptions.

Insane prize money

If you didn’t think pro golfers were already paid enough, the figures for 2024 will make your eyes water.

The winner of the FedEx Cup will receive $25 million in 2024, up from $18 million, while the victors of the Genesis Invitational, Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Memorial will pick up $4 million – up $400,000 on 2023.

The Wyndham Championship prize pool has doubled to $40 million, with $8 million going to the winner.

What they said…

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said of the 2024 PGA Tour schedule: “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.”

“While winning on the PGA Tour continues to be the ultimate – and most difficult – challenge, we have further connected every tournament, with more at stake each week.

“From The Sentry through the FedExCup Playoffs and into the soon-to-be-announced FedExCup Fall, this new, cadence will create consistent excitement for our fans and reward players like never before.

“We are grateful to the membership – especially the Player Directors and Player Advisory Council – as well as our tournaments and partners for the collaboration that has set us up for an exciting 2024.”
