PGA Tour omits Disney
Last updated: 10th December 2012
The PGA Tour has omitted the Walt Disney resort from its schedule for the 2013/14 season and will not host a tournament there for the first time since 1971.
The Disney event has been a regular on the Tour since Jack Nicklaus won the inaugural event, but since it lost its sponsor it hasn't been included in the schedule for the first six events of next season, which was announced on Monday.
The 2013/14 Tour will have FedEx Cup points on offer throughout the first six events, starting at the Frys.com Open at CordeValle Golf Club in California on October 10-13 and ending at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Mexico on November 14-17.
A two-month break will then follow and the action tees off again at Kapalua with the Tournament of Champions.
"We are very pleased that the start to the 2013-2014 PGA TOUR Season features such strong events, including several international tournaments," said Andy Pazder, Chief of Operations for the PGA TOUR.
"Due to the change from the traditional calendar season to the newly configured schedule that bridges two calendar years, we felt it was important to announce this first portion of the schedule."
