PGA Tour Announcements

PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem's touted "state of the game" address before the Tour Championship didn't live up to the hype. Finchem was supposed to provide many more details about the major changes expected to come to the PGA Tour schedule in 2007 (such as a points race, "playoff system," and tournaments being shuffled around the schedule).

Instead, he really just restated some of the minor details that are already known (see story). So we don't know yet whether the Texas Open really is moving from September to May on the schedule, or whether the Colonial, Nelson and Houston Open are staying in their regular slots.

But we do know what's happening in 2006. Which is more of the same. Here are the 2006 dates for the four Texas tournaments:

  • April 20-23: Houston Open
  • May 11-14: Byron Nelson Championship
  • May 18-21: Colonial
  • Sept. 21-24: Texas Open

One minor change: The Houston Open, while remaining at Redstone Golf Club, will be played on the Rees Jones Course that opened this year.
