PGA Tour releases 2011 schedule

The PGA TOUR has released its schedule for the 2011 season, which features 41 tournaments through the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup, four Fall Series tournaments and a four-event swing through Asia and Australia to conclude the season.
Among the notable scheduling changes from 2010 is an open week between the second and third Playoff events – the Deutsche Bank Championship and BMW Championship – and the Viking Classic’s move from the Fall Series to the PGA TOUR Regular Season, playing opposite the British Open (July 14-17). The Reno-Tahoe Open, which had been held the same week as the British Open, moves to the same week as the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational (Aug. 4-7).
The season’s traditional opening swing through Hawaii features a new title sponsor with the Hyundai Tournament of Champions at Kapalua, HI Jan. 6-9. The Sony Open in Hawaii (Honolulu) follows Jan. 13-16. Hyundai represents one of five new tournament sponsors on the schedule and reincorporates the tournament’s longtime Tournament of Champions moniker. Then the PGA TOUR and Sony, which recently announced a sponsorship extension through 2014, are presenting live 3D broadcasting from select holes at Waialae Country Club for the first time following successful testing throughout 2010.
