CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Reuters) – A much anticipated shift of the major Golf calendar that would move the PGA Championship from its August slot to May is a done deal according to media reports but PGA officials were staying mum on the subject on Monday.
The Associated Press reported on Monday that two officials involved in the discussions, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the PGA of America and PGA Tour will discuss details of the 2019 move as early as Tuesday at Quail Hollow.
“I can absolutely understand some of the logic, and if it ends up as resulting in more people watching our game, then that’s a great outcome.”
McManus said it would complete the major golf season, including the FedExCup playoffs, before the start of the NFL.
The move could also ease scheduling conflicts around the Olympics, now that golf has joined the Games program.
