The 2015-2016 PGA Tour schedule has been announced, and as expected there are some big changes to next year's schedule.
With 2016 being a Ryder Cup year, in addition to the return of golf to the Olympics, the schedule will look considerably different in certain parts.
One thing that won't look any different, is the PGA Tour's annual stop in Florida for the Florida Swing.
The Honda Classic at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens will once again kick off the Florida Swing. It will be played a week earlier this year then it was last year, taking place February 22nd through the 28th. As always, it will be followed by the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral, the Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor, and the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando.
The WGC-Cadillac Championship will be held February 29th through March 6th. The Valspar Championship is March 7th through the 13th. The Arnold Palmer Invitational will be held the following week March 14th through the 20th.
The biggest, non course related changes to the schedule come as a result of the Olympics being held August 11-14.
The PGA championship will be held July 25th through the 31st at Balustrol. It will be the first time the PGA Championship is held outside of its customary August date since Jack Nicklaus won the 1971 PGA at what is now BallenIsles.
The Travelers Championship will be held August 1st through the 7th, while the John Deere Classic will be held opposite the Olympics for those that don't qualify for the Olympics.
