The season-long Aon Risk Reward Challenge will culminate in a US$1 million prize for the player at the top of the Aon-led rankings on both the PGA and LPGA tours. The Detroit stop is wedged near the midway point between the U.S. Open and the British Open.

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.

As previously announced, the RBC Canadian Open is moving to the week before the U.S. Open, and its date following The Open is being filled by the World Golf Championship event that is moving from Akron, Ohio, to Memphis, Tennessee, and will now be known as the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.

UK regulator to fine Facebook over data breaches
The scandal took place before new European Union data protection laws that allow much larger fines came into force. The ICO said it expects to have wrapped up these investigations by the end of October.

Houston and Greenbrier are to return to the fall portion of the schedule in 2019.

Behind the tighter schedule was a desire for the tour to complete its season at the Tour Championship before the start of college football and the NFL. Liberty National in Jersey City will host next year's event while TPC Boston in Norton will serve as host in 2020 and 2022.

While The Open, to be played at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland next year, becomes the last of the four majors, it will be a mad dash to the finish for PGA Tour players.

Love Island star's boyfriend dies weeks after her death
According to police , there was no third-party involvement in the death, and a report is being prepared for the coroner. Sophie, 32, who appeared on the second series of Love Island , and was a former Miss Great Britain, died on June 20.

The FedExCup Playoffs will move from four events to three next year, featuring the Northern Trust, the BMW Championship and the Tour Championship. The other World Golf Championships are the Mexico Championship (Mexico City, Mexico), the Dell Technologies Match Play (Austin, Texas) and the HSBC Champions (Shanghai, China).

Still to be determined is whether the PGA Tour will change the structure for the FedEx Cup, and how this new schedule will work in 2020 when the Olympics are in Japan from July 24 to August 9.

Jay Monahan, commissioner of the PGA Tour, added: "The Aon Risk Reward Challenge is an authentic fit for our sport that will resonate with players and fans while providing Aon an intuitive way to reinforce how their firm creates value for its clients". That leaves 11 weeks when the PGA Tour does not have an official event.
