And the tandem of the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational and Barracuda Championship moved up three weeks, from late July to early July to accommodate the 2020 Summer Olympics.
Status changes: The Sanderson Farms Championship was upgraded from an alternate event to a full FedEx Cup point event. The Genesis Open gained invitational status and was renamed the Genesis Invitational; Tiger Woods became the tournament host.
No longer on schedule: The CIMB Classic, which was based in Malaysia.
