Aon reveal multi year partnership with the PGA TOUR and LPGA

11 July 2018

It also marks the return of a premier PGA Tour event to MI for the first time since the Buick Open wrapped up in Grand Blanc in 2009. The final piece was where to put two new tournaments between the U.S. Open and British Open.

TPC Boston hosted a FedEx Cup playoff event each Labor Day weekend since 2003, last year and this as the Dell Technologies Championship and as the Deutsche Bank Championship for its first 14 years.

The equal payout for the men and women earned the attention of the LPGA Tour members, whose financial compensation in the competitive and corporate spheres lag far behind their PGA Tour brethren.

It outlined that the player from each tour that places top of the Aon leaderboard at the end of the regular season will each receive US$1 million.

The World Golf Championships consistently attract the most elite and global fields of the year, with 40-50 of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Ranking teeing it up in the series of four annual events. Liberty National in Jersey City will host next year's event while TPC Boston in Norton will serve as host in 2020 and 2022.

Pep Guardiola made a number of bids for the Algerian, but were unwilling match Leicester's £95m valuation. He's the greatest thing to come out of Essex since Nick Frost.

Still to be determined is when the new fall schedule will begin in 2019 and how many tournaments will be part of it.

The wraparound season starts October 4-7 with the Safeway Open in Napa, California, one week after the Ryder Cup in France. The Dallas and Fort Worth tournaments are split by the PGA Championship, which will be played at Bethpage Black (May 16-19) as part of its new May date.

The 3M Open will be held two weeks before players head across the pond for The Open Championship, which will be held in Northern Ireland in 2019.

The three playoff events are The Northern Trust at Liberty National in New Jersey; the BMW Championship at Medinah outside Chicago; and the Tour Championship, which will be August 22-25 at East Lake in Atlanta.

The 46 events include four tournaments held opposite World Golf Championships, and one event opposite the British Open. So other than a tour pro potentially changing his/her schedule, essentially, you just play tournaments and hope to score well on the selected holes. That leaves 11 weeks when the PGA Tour does not have an official event.
