PGA Tour releases full 2013-14 schedule

The PGA Tour announced the full 2013-14 schedule on Monday.

The five events that had been known as the Fall Series will be played in October and November, but will be the first five events of the 2013-14 season. Those five events and the Mayakoba event will be the first six tournaments on the 2013-14 schedule.

The World Cup of Golf is the final event on the early part of the schedule and will be played the fourth week of November.

Once the calendar turns to January, the tour starts the first weekend in Hawaii with the Tournament of Champions, which will run Friday to Monday, January 3-6.

The following week the tour hits Waialae for the Sony Open, before heading to the west coast. When the west coast swing gets underway, the first six events are the same as 2013, starting with the Humana Challenge and ending with the World Golf Championships - Accenture Match Play Championship.

The next five events also remain in the same slot as 2013 as the tour hits Florida. The second week of that sequence is the WGC - Cadillac Championship, with the Puerto Rico Open being played opposite it.

There is a quick stop in Texas for the Texas Open and Houston Open before Adam Scott heads to Augusta to defend his Masters title.

Following the year's first major, the next eight events leading up to major No. 2 are the same. The Heritage is following by stops in New Orleans, Charlotte, then back to Florida for The Players Championship.

Two more Texas events precede The Memorial, which is followed by the St. Jude Classic and the season's second major, the U.S. Open. Justin Rose will defend his title at Pinehurst No. 2.

There is a three-event swing through the northeast with the Travelers in Connecticut, the AT&T outside Washington and then its on to West Virginia for the Greenbrier.

The John Deere Classic precedes the British Open once again. Phil Mickelson will defend his claret jug at Royal Liverpool. The tour returns to North America for the Canadian Open, then the stretch run.

The WGC - Bridgestone Invitational is the following week and has the Reno- Tahoe Open being played opposite of it again. Next up is the final major of the season, the PGA Championship, where Jason Dufner will defend the Wanamaker Trophy at Valhalla.

The Wyndham Championship, the final regular season event follows. The four FedExCup Playoff events start the week after the Wyndham and there isn't a week off during the playoff next year. The second playoff event, the Deutsche Bank, will end on Labor Day Monday as it has the last few years.

The lucky 24 players that will represent the United States and Europe in the Ryder Cup will have a week off between the Tour Championship and the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.
