PGA Tour adds Bermuda to 2019-20 schedule

The PGA Tour has added the island of Bermuda as a new destination on the 2019-20 schedule, with the creation of the Bermuda Championship.

The inaugural tournament is scheduled to take place at the Port Royal Golf Course on Oct 31-Nov 3, opposite the WGC-HSBC Champions in China.

It will carry a $3m (€2.7m) purse and offer 300 FedExCup points to the champion.

The Bermuda Tourism Authority has signed a five-year agreement, through 2023, as the title sponsor of the event, which will be broadcast on The Golf Channel in the United States.
