There is talk of the US PGA Cham­pi­onship be­com­ing the sec­ond ma­jor of the cal­en­dar year, rather than the fi­nal one, if golf re­mains in the Olympics after the 2020 Games in Tokyo. Last year the PGA had to move to the last week of July to avoid clash­ing with the Rio Games, and the PGA of America would like to move their cham­pi­onship per­ma­nently from Au­gust to May. This would de­pend on the PGA Tour’s Play­ers Cham­pi­onship re­turn­ing to a March date. The FedEx Cup Play­offs would be­gin ear­lier in Au­gust, fin­ish­ing up on the Amer­i­can hol­i­day of Labour Day, the first Mon­day of Septem­ber. The Ry­der Cup would then be played ear­lier in Septem­ber.
