The tour season stars at the Frys.com Open (Oct. 10-13) and continues with five more events -- including three overseas -- before a six-week break and the resumption of the schedule with two January events in Hawaii.
There are a few differences in the 45-event schedule:
• The Shell Houston Open returns to its normal spot a week before the Masters (this year it was played two weeks prior) and is switching positions with the Valero Texas Open.
• Unlike this year, the FedEx Cup playoffs will be contested over four consecutive weeks, with no break. That is in deference to the Ryder Cup, which will be played in Scotland. The PGA of America requested from the PGA Tour a week break prior to the biennial competition, meaning the Tour Championship in Atlanta will be contested Sept. 11-14, 2014. The Ryder Cup is two weeks later.
• Missing from the schedule is the Sanderson Farms Championship in Mississippi, which was played in July this year opposite the Open Championship. In 2014, it moves to the fall and is expected to be the leadoff event to the 2014-15 season.
