The PGA Tour has released its 2015-16 schedule, which is heavily influenced by golf’s return to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro next August.
The schedule through the first eight months of the wrap-around season is largely unchanged, but after the U.S. Open at Oakmont (June 16-19), things get a little screwy to accommodate the Olympic golf tournament. The Quicken Loans National assumes the post-U.S. Open slot typically reserved for the Travelers Championship, which moves to Augusta in a one-off to the post-PGA Championship spot. The John Deere Classic becomes the opposite-field event to the Olympic tournament, played Aug. 11-14.
