PGA Tour West Virginia stop moved to September

The PGA Tour’s annual stop in  the state of West Virginia has been moved to September beginning this year, it was announced Monday. Previously the tournament – currently known as A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier – was held in early July to coincide with the Independence Day holiday. Beginning in 2019, the event will coincide with the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The PGA Tour has shifted its calendar ending the FedEx playoffs in August. The West Virginia stop will now be part of PGA Tour’s fall schedule and take place three weeks after the Tour Championship.

Due to the shift in the PGA Tour calendar, the European Tour, has added increased value to the end of its season. This has  given players the option of skipping the post Tour Championship tournaments on the PGA Tour and playing on the European Tour instead.
