The PGA Tour announced its 2019 tournament schedule today, which includes the addition of two tournaments, changes in the timing and locations of others, and one less event in the FedExCup Playoffs.

The BMW Championship will be the middle event for the leading 70 players in the FedExCup standings, while TPC Boston will host the Northern Trust on alternate years from 2020 after the Dell Technologies Championship removed from the schedule.

"We're extremely pleased with the way the schedule has come together, particularly with the number of changes that were involved and the strength of the partnerships required to achieve this new look", Monahan said.

The PGA Tour is expected to announce a revamped playoff format later this year.
